OLNEY, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/11/07 -- Despite a tumultuous summer for the equity markets, the folks at Arrow Funds are pleased to announce that their flagship fund, the Arrow DWA Balanced Fund (DWAFX), has just exceeded $100 million in assets under management -- just a few weeks after the fund celebrated its one-year anniversary.
"Even with the market volatility, investors are looking for a core tactical strategy that responds to changing market conditions," states Joseph Barrato, executive vice president and director of portfolio strategies, Arrow Funds. "The Fund's disciplined investment strategy helped it surpass 92% of its peers in the Morningstar Moderate Allocation category over the last year.*"
Managed by the portfolio team at Dorsey Wright and Associates (DWA), the Fund primarily invests in exchange traded funds (ETFs). It provides targeted exposure to sector, style, international, fixed-income, and alternative asset classes using five distinct rotation strategies. The Fund stays responsive to market conditions, reallocating portfolio segments within certain bands through a strict buy-and-sell discipline based on relative strength.
On the heels of the $100-million-in-assets milestone, Arrow has also announced that they have reduced the Fund's net annual expense caps for both the Class A Shares and the Advisor Class Shares -- from 2.0% to 1.6% and from 2.50% to 2.35% respectively. "As the Fund grows, we will achieve better economies of scale across the board," says Barrato. "We want to pass this benefit on to investors and will continue to do so as assets rise."
Arrow Funds has developed selling agreements with more than 100 of the top national, regional, independent broker/dealers, clearing brokers and registered investment advisor-based platforms.
