Australian focussed equity long short. The Arrow Fund offers investors potential significant long-term returns uncorrelated to other markets.

Competitive Advantage

For truly boutique-sized hedge funds there exists persistent opportunity to generate absolute returns through actively managing a long short equities portfolio within the Australian market.  Enduring alpha can be found through the construction and implementation of a series of winning trades that are actively managed and hedged against changing market backdrop.

The Arrow Fund aims to repeat the investment performance of Charlie Brown’s contribution to the KIS Asia Long Short Fund which generated net returns to investors of 11.76% net of fees over a 10 year period.

The Investment Manager’s geographic focus is Australia. The Investment Manager may take exposures outside of Australia to the extent that the exposure is intended to mitigate risk or enhance return from factors external to the Australian market.

Whilst the Investment Manager’s primary strategy is focused on long/short Australian equities, the ability to retain discretionary powers to allocate funds across a number of other investment strategies and asset classes is reserved. These strategies may include, but not be limited to: convertible bond investments, portfolio hedging, equity related arbitrage and special situations (e.g. merger arbitrage, rights offerings, participation in international public offerings and placements, etc.).

The Investment Manager will seek to deliver positive absolute returns while seeking to preserve capital.
