Flaig Also Authors Academic White Paper on Portfolio Creation Using Alternative Asset Allocations

OLNEY, MD--(Marketwire - March 7, 2008) - Arrow Funds is pleased to announce that they have just posted a recent interview with The Wall Street Transcript and William E. Flaig, Chief Investment Officer for Arrow Funds. Additionally, Mr. Flaig has authored an academic white paper on "Alternative Asset Allocation."

In his interview, Mr. Flaig goes into great detail about the Arrow Alternative Solutions Fund (NASDAQ: ASFFX) and the benefits that offering hedge fund strategies within a mutual fund vehicle can provide to investors. He also speaks to the need for investors to have exposure to absolute return strategies in their portfolios.

The Arrow Alternative Solutions Fund combines three alternative strategies which provide exposure to long/short equities, fixed income arbitrage and managed futures. "The Arrow Alternative Solutions Fund is a perfect complement to our flagship fund, the Arrow DWA Balanced Fund," (NASDAQ: DWAFX) says Joseph Barrato, CEO at Arrow Funds. "When combined with a tactical or strategic portfolio, the fund has the ability to enhance returns while reducing overall risk."

In addition, Arrow Funds recently released a white paper authored by Mr. Flaig that is a comprehensive piece on creating "Alternative Asset Allocation" portfolios. In this academic study, Mr. Flaig explains how a portfolio manager can capture risk premiums and market inefficiencies by using long/short portfolio construction techniques referred to as "Absolute Return Factors." The white paper is available to financial professionals on the Arrow Funds website.
