Arrow Slashes Fund's Expense Ratio

News summary by MFWire's editors

Arrow Funds dropped expenses in a fund that just breezed by the $100 million asset mark. On Tuesday the one-year-old Olney, Maryland-based fund firm revealed that it lowered net annual expenses caps for the Arrow DWA Balanced Fund's Advisor Class and Class A shares, from 250 to 235 basis points and 200 to 160 basis points, respectively.
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. This list includes Wachovia Securities Inc. (First Clearing), Merrill Lynch, RBC Dain Rauscher Inc., Morgan Keegan & Company, Inc., Bear, Stearns Securities Corp. (Global Clearing), Robert W. Baird, Linsco/Private Ledger Corp., Commonwealth Financial Network, NFP Securities Inc., First Allied Securities Inc., Pershing, Sterne Agee Financial Services, Inc., Southwest Securities Inc., Charles Schwab, Fidelity (National Financial Services-NFS) and TD Ameritrade, Inc. (National Investor Services Corporation).

The Fund has a minimum initial investment of $5,000 and a minimum of $250 for all subsequent investments.
