Arrow announces the launch of 2 new Canadian-based long/short funds

    The new Arrow Roundtable and Arrow JC Clark Opportunities Funds are
    designed to exploit opportunities unique to the Canadian smaller and mid-
    cap markets

    TORONTO, Sept. 7 /CNW/ - Arrow Hedge Partners Inc. announced the launch
of the Arrow Roundtable Fund and the JC Clark Opportunities Funds. These funds
provide qualified investors with an opportunity to participate in the
extraordinary gains potential that exists in the Canadian small and mid-cap
markets through long/short products managed by top-quality managers.
    "The opportunity for extraordinary gains in the Canadian market arises
from several factors, including the relatively light analytical coverage of
small and mid-cap stocks relative to larger-cap stocks", says Mark Purdy,
Chief Investment Officer of Arrow Hedge in Toronto. "This provides managers
like JC Clark and Roundtable an opportunity to leverage their deep Canadian
information networks to exploit arbitrage opportunities in ways that long-only
managers - even in the small and mid-cap space - simply can't."
    Both managers have long track records managing Canadian stocks, deep
industry networks and approach their mandates with bottom-up security
selection. But both bring a unique approach to their stock-picking expertise.
    JC Clark's concentrated fund has a contrarian bent. Its utilization of a
disciplined short sell regime enables a variable-bias long/short complexion,
resulting in extremely low correlations to broader markets, making them an
excellent diversification tool.
    Roundtable's approach, which includes a long bias and limited use of
leverage, is deployed against a concentrated core of stocks while allowing
more frequent, catalyst-driven trading against key emerging themes with the
remainder, enhancing long term performance.
    "These two managers represent amongst the most talented managers of their
types in Canada," says Jim McGovern, Arrow's Chief Executive. "We're proud to
represent the two complementary approaches - and include them in several of
our fund of fund offerings - in our efforts to bring the unique opportunity
set of the non-large cap Canadian market to our investors."
