Arrow DWA Balanced Fund (DWAFX) Reaches New Milestone

Tactical Asset Allocation Strategy Beats Broad Markets for 3 Years Since Inception

OLNEY, MD--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) - Arrow Funds, a leading provider of alternative strategy mutual funds, is pleased to announce that their flagship fund, the Arrow DWA Balanced Fund (NASDAQ: DWAFX), has just reached its 3-year anniversary. Since its inception in August 2006, the Fund has an average annual return of 0.77%, outperforming the S&P 500 which had a return of -5.41% annualized for the same time period.

"We feel the Arrow DWA Balanced Fund has served well as a core holding for investors during the past three years, especially considering the unprecedented market conditions," stated Joseph Barrato, Arrow Funds' CEO. "It's clear that investors have taken notice of our unique tactical asset allocation approach." Since its inception, assets under management for the Fund have grown to more than $250 million, making it a fast growing fund within an established category while outperforming 90% of its peers.

The Arrow DWA Balanced Fund is managed by the skilled portfolio team at Dorsey Wright and Associates (DWA). The Fund primarily invests in exchange traded funds (ETFs) and provides diversified exposure to sector, style, international, fixed-income and alternative asset classes using five distinct rotation strategies.

As the sub-advisors to the Fund, DWA allocates across the various portfolio segments based on proprietary technical analysis that has brought them high accolades from the financial services industry. "For years we have taught investors the importance of making investment decisions based on the economics of supply and demand. The relative strength of this fund against its peers over the last three years is a testament to our disciplined investment approach. Combining that with the broad distribution capabilities of the Arrow Funds, investors have access to a unique core investment portfolio," said Tom Dorsey, President of Dorsey Wright & Associates.
