Investment Strategy

Seeks long-term capital appreciation that corresponds generally to the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Dorsey Wright Country and Stock Momentum Index. The index is constructed pursuant to Dorsey, Wright & Associates' proprietary methodology. The index has a relative strength focus that looks for the 10 strongest performing countries among a universe of 41 countries. Once the country is identified, the index methodology is designed to identify 10 companies that demonstrate powerful relative strength characteristics within that country. The fund and the index are equally weighted and rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.

Fund Highlights

  • May provide low correlation to domestic equity market

    Fact Sheet


    Summary Prospectus

    Dorsey Wright Country and Stock Momentum Index
  • Foreign universe: 41 countries from the developed and emerging markets
  • Country stock baskets will represent the top 10 securities with highest relative strength
  • Security screens—company's location and economic ties will determine its country designation
  • Index methodology follows a strict screening process
  • Dorsey Wright has been capitalizing on the momentum anomaly since 1987

  • Momentum Effect among Countries
    The momentum anomaly says that countries with high returns in the past will continue to outperform in the near future. There have been countless studies that show the benefit of momentum strategies in U.S. and foreign markets, and momentum strategies have had consistent performance. There are fundamental reasons to explain why momentum anomalies across countries are viable. Investors should understand that price and performance of country momentum can change or may not continue. There is a natural under-reaction by the market to information, and price momentum is not impacted by such fundamental trends. Another may be behavioral biases like investor herding. The Dorsey Wright Country and Stock Momentum Index was developed to exploit the international momentum anomaly. The index was designed to find countries with high relative performance and when such performance does not persist, it has the discipline to sell. The Arrow DWA Tactical: International ETF, previously Arrow DWA Country Rotation ETF provides investors a low cost and packaged solution to access this trading strategy.

    The Arrow DWA Tactical: International ETF may not be suitable for all investors. New funds have a limited performance record. 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. The market price may be higher (premium) or lower (discount) than the Net Asset Value (NAV). The fund’s portfolio may underperform its benchmark and/or other asset classes. The fund’s portfolio may underperform the general equity markets, or other asset classes, with the potential for greater individual security risk, asset class risk, and higher industry concentration risk than more broadly diversified portfolios. The fund may invest in large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap securities. Investing in small-cap and mid-cap securities may have special risks, including wider variations in earnings and business prospects than larger, more established companies. 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.
