Arrow Funds Adds Two ETFS to E*TRADE's Commission-Free ETF Platform

Arrow Dow Jones Global Yield ETF (GYLD) and Arrow DWA Tactical ETF (DWAT) now available on E*TRADE's platform

LAUREL, MD--(Marketwired - May 03, 2017) - Arrow Funds today placed two ArrowShares exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on E*TRADE's Commission-Free ETF platform.1 The firm's flagship ETF, Arrow Dow Jones Global Yield ETF (NYSE: GYLD), as well as the Arrow DWA Tactical ETF (NASDAQ: DWAT) can now be bought and sold without paying brokerage commissions via E*TRADE's platform.

"We are pleased to enhance accessibility to two Arrow ETFs that can help investors meet specific portfolio needs," said Joseph Barrato, CEO and Director of Investment Strategy at Arrow Funds. "The Arrow Dow Jones Global Yield ETF addresses the income challenge that so many investors currently face, while the Arrow DWA Tactical ETF offers an attractive option for investors seeking a global macro strategy."

Benchmarked to the Dow Jones Global Composite Index℠, the Arrow Dow Jones Global Yield ETF (GYLD) provides global, multi-asset exposure to traditional and alternative sources of yield, including Global Sovereign Debt, Global Equity, Global Real Estate, Global Alternatives (Master Limited Partnerships) and Global Corporate Debt. GYLD is equally weighted across its five yield categories to reduce over-exposure to individual securities, as typically experienced by cap-weighted indexes. The ETF has a 30-Day SEC Yield of 6.69% and a Distribution Rate of 6.48% as of the latest distribution on April 17, 2017.

The Arrow DWA Tactical ETF (DWAT), on the other hand, provides an active strategy that leverages the technical analysis expertise of Dorsey, Wright & Associates (DWA) to respond to changing market conditions. Based on the DWA Systematic Global Macro Model, DWAT allocates to those market segments demonstrating the strongest relative strength among Global Equities, Global Fixed Income and Global Alternatives such as real estate, currencies and commodities. DWAT's strict relative strength buy and sell discipline offers a sharp contrast to many other global macro strategies that rely primarily on subjective macroeconomic analysis with the risk of manager bias.

"As investors' level of sophistication grows, so does their interest and awareness of ETFs beyond the mainstream as they seek nuanced strategies that can be deployed for specific opportunities," said Rich Messina, SVP, Investment Product Management at E*TRADE. "With the addition of two Arrow ETFs, we continue in our pursuit to offer our customers a robust range of investment choices that are commission-free to trade."

In addition to GYLD and DWAT which are now available on E*TRADE's Commission-Free ETF platform, Arrow also offers the Arrow QVM Equity Factor ETF (QVM) and the Arrow Reserve Capital Management ETF (ARCM) and a full suite of mutual funds.
