    The fund optimizes the exposure to each of the underlying directional strategies depending on market conditions. The strategy balances risk and reward. When fixed income markets are performing well, exposure will be tilted toward the sectors with the strongest trends. When markets are weak, exposure will be tilted more defensively. During risk-off environments, it is possible for the majority of the strategy to be invested in the U.S. Treasury market. The directional positions are based on a series of proprietary indicators that are customized for each specific market segment. The nature of the fund provides the ability for each of the strategies to act independently from one another, providing an additional layer of potential diversification and the ability to respond to changing market and interest rate environments.

    Tactical Exposure to Fixed Income Segments
    The Arrow Dynamic Income Fund’s returns are derived across distinct fixed income market segments. The chart below presents different investment characteristics for the various fixed income segments from year-to-year.

ASFNX is the institutional share class of the Arrow Dynamic Income Fund. *Standard Deviation (a measure of volatility) is based on averages from 4/1/2014 through 12/31/2019. Data for the Since Strategy Change (SC) Return and Correlation based upon 4/1/2014-12/31/2019 data. Bonds are represented by the returns of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index.

    Standard deviation is a statistical measurement of volatility based on historical returns. Correlation measures how closely two securities' movements are associated, ranging from 1.0 (highly correlated) to -1.0 (inversely correlated). Absolute Returns are generally positive returns in any market environment. There is no guarantee that any investment will achieve this objective.

    The Arrow Dynamic Income Fund may not be suitable for all investors. The fund's use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements may expose the fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives. Investing in leveraged instruments will magnify any gains or losses on those instruments. The fund's use of short selling involves increased risks and additional costs. The fund may invest in fixed income securities, which are subject to risks including interest rate, credit and inflation. The fund may invest in mortgage-backed securities, which are subject to additional risks including higher volatility, real estate market risk and possible illiquidity and default risk.
