AdvisorShares Announces Partnership With Accuvest Global Advisors

Partnership Will Create a Solution That Utilizes a Global Country Rotation Strategy

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - AdvisorShares Investments, LLC, a sponsor of actively managed Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), announced today a partnership with Accuvest Global Advisors ("AGA"), to develop an actively managed ETF which will utilize a proprietary global country rotation strategy. The proposed ETF would join AdvisorShares' growing stable of innovative actively managed ETFs and add a global investment strategist to the AdvisorShares family for Financial Advisors to gain insights from.

Noah Hamman, CEO and Founder of AdvisorShares said, "We feel investment advisors will be as excited as we are to be able to offer their clients access to AGA's extensive global equity investing experience. The strategy utilizes a unique top-down macro-economic scoring system as they evaluate and pick countries, not individual equities. AGA has a tremendous track record of success and the upcoming ETF will provide investors with another solution to gain global equity exposure."

David Garff, President of AGA said, "We believe that global equity markets provide ongoing return opportunities for disciplined investors, and that the best way to gain exposure to these markets is through a broadly diversified portfolio that minimizes individual security risks by investing in a portfolio of price efficient, single country ETFs."

Garff added, "We're looking forward to our partnership with AdvisorShares in creating this investment vehicle which will pair our extensive global country ranking research with AdvisorShares' ETF expertise."
