NYSE: GYLD seeks to pay monthly dividends in an easy to buy, easy to sell ETF.
There’s more to our process than simply buying the highest yielding securities. GYLD is diversified across asset classes and geographies to deliver more consistent above market yield.
We provide market exposure across five asset classes (Global Corporate Debt, Global Sovereign Debt, Global Real Estate, Global Energy and Global Equities).
Each asset class seeks the highest yielding global securities with 30 holdings in each basket (150 total holdings). GYLD follows a strict screening process with
quarterly rebalancing (dual-equal weighting process at and within the asset classes).

dividends and are net of management fees, transaction costs or expenses. The
number of funds in a category will vary, subject to survivorship bias from fund
closure and recategorization. The driving principles behind the

Equity & 40% Bonds

portfolios have at least 90% of their bond holdings in bonds backed by the U.S.
government or by government-linked agencies. These portfolios have durations
typically between 3.5 and 6.0 years. The portfolios' returns are often similar
to those of the Barclays US Agg Bond Index. Large Blend Large-blend
portfolios are fairly representative of the overall US stock market in size,
growth rates and price. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the US
equity market are defined as large cap. The portfolios' returns are often
similar to those of the S&P 500 Index. World-allocation
portfolios seek to provide both capital appreciation and income by investing in
three major areas: stocks, bonds, and cash. These portfolios typically have at
least 10% of assets in bonds, less than 70% of assets in stocks, and at least
40% of assets in non-U.S. stocks or bonds. Foreign large-value portfolios
invest mainly in big international stocks that are less expensive or growing
more slowly than other large-cap stocks. These portfolios typically will have
less than 20% of assets invested in U.S. stocks. Long-government portfolios
have at least 90% of their bond holdings invested in bonds backed by the U.S.
government or by government-linked agencies. Because these portfolios have
durations of typically more than 6.0 years, they are more sensitive to interest

exchange for their credit risk, these loans offer high interest payments that
typically float above a common short-term benchmark such as LIBOR. Corporate

65% of their assets in corporate bonds, hold less than 40% of their assets in
foreign bonds, less than 35% in high yield bonds. Preferred

than 65% of assets in preferred stocks and perpetual bonds. High-yield
portfolios concentrate on lower-quality bonds, which are riskier than those of
higher-quality companies. These portfolios primarily invest in U.S. high-income
debt securities where at least 65% or more of bond assets are not rated or are
rated at the level of BB (considered speculative for taxable bonds) and below. Emerging-markets
portfolios invest more than 65% of their assets in foreign bonds from
developing countries. The largest portion of the emerging-markets bond market
comes from Latin America, followed by Eastern Europe. Africa, the Middle East,
and Asia make up the rest. High-Yield Muni portfolios
typically invest a substantial portion of assets in high-income municipal
securities that are not rated or that are rated at the level of or below BBB

The Arrow Dow Jones Global Yield ETF may not be suitable for all investors. The fund may not replicate the exact performance of the benchmark because of fees, expenses, trading costs and portfolio tracking error. Exchange traded products are bought and sold at market price, not NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Buying and selling shares generally results in brokerage commissions which will reduce returns. Fixed income securities may be subject to risks associated with interest rate fluctuations. International investments may involve additional risks, including, but not limited to, currency fluctuation, accounting methods, and geopolitical instability. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and potentially lower trading volume. Changes in laws, domestically or abroad, could result in the inability of the fund to operate as described in the prospectus. Narrowly focused investments may be subject to higher volatility. High yielding stocks and non-investment grade bonds are often higher risk investments which may be subject to greater volatility. Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) and Royalty Investment Trusts (RITs) have specific risks, including, among others, limited voting rights, energy demand, limited call rights of the general partner, and tax law changes. In order to qualify for the tax treatment of a regulated investment company (RIC) the fund’s exposure to MLPs can not exceed 25%, or may be subject to corporate taxes which would reduce performance. Investments in securities of real estate companies involves risks including, among others, adverse changes in real estate conditions domestically or abroad, availability or obsolescence of properties, cost and terms of mortgages, and changes of laws.
