Video: Demand for Liquid Alts Increasing with Volatility Fears

“All this volatility in the market has people buzzing about liquid alternatives,” according to Gregg Greenberg of TheStreet.com. In this video, Mr. Greenberg interviews Tom Florence, CEO of 361 Capital, who says demand for his firm’s liquid alternative funds began picking up in February.

Mr. Florence also touts 361 Capital’s Global Long/Short Equity Fund (AGAQX), which generated one-year gains of 9.12% through February 28, according to Morningstar. The fund is designed to be 70% net-long, and it buys low-beta stocks and short-sells high-beta stocks. According to Mr. Florence, there aren’t a lot of “very good” funds in the long/short equity space, but the 361 Capital Global Long/Short Equity Fund is one of them.
