Effective June 25, 2024, Arrow Opportunities Alternative Class merged into Arrow Opportunities Alternative Fund as part of the corporate class fund merger. Effective June 15, 2023, the fund was renamed Arrow Opportunities Alternative Class (formerly Arrow Global Opportunities Class).

Prior to September 30, 2021, the Fund was named Arrow Global Opportunities Class (“AGOC”). The Fund distributed to investors on a prospectus-exempt basis in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 and was not a reporting issuer between June 30, 2020 and January 10, 2022. The expenses of AGOC would have been higher during such period had the Fund been subject to the additional regulatory requirements applicable to a reporting issuer. Financial statements of AGOC are posted on Arrow’s website and are available to investors upon request

Exemptive relief was granted by the Ontario Securities Commission on November 21, 2021 to permit the Fund to use performance prior to the Fund becoming a reporting issuer.

FundGrade A+® is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The annual FundGrade A+® Awards are presented by Fundata Canada Inc. to recognize the “best of the best” among Canadian investment funds. The FundGrade A+® calculation is supplemental to the monthly FundGrade ratings and is calculated at the end of each calendar year. The FundGrade rating system evaluates funds based on their risk-adjusted performance, measured by Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio, and Information Ratio. The score for each ratio is calculated individually, covering all time periods from 2 to 10 years. The scores are then weighted equally in calculating a monthly FundGrade. The top 10% of funds earn an A Grade; the next 20% of funds earn a B Grade; the next 40% of funds earn a C Grade; the next 20% of funds receive a D Grade; and the lowest 10% of funds receive an E Grade. To be eligible, a fund must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year. The FundGrade A+® uses a GPA-style calculation, where each monthly FundGrade from “A” to “E” receives a score from 4 to 0, respectively. A fund’s average score for the year determines its GPA. Any fund with a GPA of 3.5 or greater is awarded a FundGrade A+® Award.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees, performance fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing.  The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns net of fees and expenses payable by the fund (except for figures of one year or less, which are simple total returns) including changes in security value and reinvestment of all dividends/distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently, and past performance may not be repeated.

The rates of return are used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and are not intended to reflect future values or returns on investment in an investment fund.

The “Growth of $1,000” chart shows the final value of a hypothetical $1,000 investment in securities in this class/series of the fund as at the end of the investment period indicated and is not intended to reflect future values or returns on investment in such securities.

The risk level of a fund has been determined in accordance with a standardized risk classification methodology in National Instrument 81-102, that is based on the fund’s historical volatility as measured by the 10-year standard deviation of the fund’s returns.  Where a fund has offered securities to the public for less than 10 years, the standardized methodology requires that the standard deviation of a reference mutual fund or index that reasonably approximates the fund’s standard deviation be used to determine the fund’s risk rating.  Please note that historical performance may not be indicative of future returns and a fund’s historical volatility may not be indicative of future volatility.
