AdvisorShares Launches the Meidell Tactical Advantage ETF (MATH)

MATH's Quantitative Tactical Methodology Seeks ETFs Participating in Long-Term Durable Trends

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - AdvisorShares Investments, a sponsor of actively managed Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), today launched the AdvisorShares Meidell Tactical Advantage ETF (NYSE: MATH) which is managed by American Wealth Management of Reno, Nevada. The Meidell Tactical Advantage ETF offers advisers a broadly diversified portfolio that measures the velocity of change in value across asset classes to find the best risk-adjusted returns.

Laif Meidell, Portfolio Manager of MATH, said, "We are very excited to launch MATH with AdvisorShares as we believe investment advisers and their clients will be excited about the strategy's focus on changes in the economy, and how assets should be allocated as these changes occur, all within an actively managed ETF. We manage MATH by measuring the velocity of change in the different asset classes, and then make investment allocations with the goal of providing positive risk adjusted returns and minimizing losses through tactical asset allocation."

Noah Hamman, CEO and Founder of AdvisorShares, said, "We feel investors are seeking a professionally managed tactical strategy like MATH which enables the portfolio manager to evaluate, rank and select the mix of investments in given market conditions while remaining objective and unemotional. We're proud to add the Meidell Tactical Advantage ETF to our growing stable of unique ETFs."
