Sterling Capital Funds Launches New Long/Short Equity Fund

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterling Capital Funds is pleased to announce the launch of its new Sterling Capital Long/Short Equity Fund, adding to its lineup of 21 mutual funds offering investors access to virtually every asset class and sector.

The fund focuses on long-term capital appreciation by allocating capital to external long/short equity managers. The fund is managed by L. Joshua Wein, CAIA, and James C. Willis, CFA, and will offer Class A, C and Institutional shares. 

"We believe there are a variety of advantages offered to clients with this fund," said Wein, co-portfolio manager based in Raleigh, N.C. "The liquid exposure to long/short equity, a multi-manager approach and the ability of Sterling Capital Management, as investment adviser, to monitor underlying portfolio exposures are among the advantages offered."

The fund will target four investment management firms that will each sub-advise an allocated percentage of the fund with all assets custodied centrally. The fund's structure allows capital to be allocated/re-allocated and rebalanced as needed.

While the fund focuses primarily on sector-specific managers, the team will also selectively allocate to managers with multi-sector approaches.

"This multi-manager approach draws upon the resources and manager search-and-selection expertise of Sterling Capital's Advisory Solutions team," said Willis, co-manager of the fund with Wein. "Through an extensive investment and operational due diligence process, we are seeking skilled managers with clearly differentiated approaches to equity research, risk management and portfolio construction."

The initial sub-advisors selected for the fund are Cummings Bay Capital Management based in Dallas; Gator Capital Management in Tampa, Fla.; Lucas Capital Management in Red Bank, N.J.; and Sanborn Kilcollin Partners in Chicago.

Wein has investment experience since 1995. He is a graduate of Emory University with a bachelor's degree in finance. He received his MBA from Vanderbilt University. He is a CAIA charterholder.

Willis has investment experience since 1996. He is a graduate of Rice University with bachelor's degrees in economics and political science. He received his MBA from Georgetown University. He is a CFA charterholder.

Risk Considerations
Mutual fund investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal value. The fund may invest in derivatives, (futures, options, swaps). On occasion the fund may sell covered call and put options. Selling covered call options limits the fund's opportunity to profit from an increase in the price of the underlying stock above the exercise price, but it continues to bear the risk of a decline in the stock. To the extent that the investment advisor misjudges current market conditions, the fund's volatility may be amplified by its use of short sales and derivatives, and by its ability to select sub-advisers to allocate assets. Short sales by a fund theoretically involve unlimited loss potential since the market price of securities sold short may continuously increase.
