Arrow Launches Canadian Long/Short Funds

Sep 14 2007 | 11:06am ET

Toronto fund of funds shop Arrow Hedge Partners has launched a pair of single-manager funds to invest in the Canadian small and mid-cap markets via different shades of long/short strategies.

The JC Clark Opportunities Funds’ concentrated fund has a contrarian bent, while the Arrow Roundtable Fund’s approach, which includes a long bias and limited use of leverage, builds its portfolio around a core of catalyst-driven investment ideas while deploying the remainder against specific themes.

Both funds employ subadvisors: Colin Stewart of JC Clark Ltd. and Jim Allan of Roundtable.

“These two managers represent amongst the most talented managers of their types in Canada,” said Jim McGovern, Arrow’s CEO. “We’re proud to represent the two complementary approaches–and include them in several of our fund of fund offerings-in our efforts to bring the unique opportunity set of the non-large cap Canadian market to our investors.”

Both funds charge 2.5% for management and 20% for performance, with a C$25,000 (US$24,150) minimum investment requirement.

JCClark currently manages some C$300 million (US$290 million), predominantly invested in Canadian long/short equity strategies and Roundtable manages over C$92 million (US$88.9 million) in assets.

Arrow Hedge currently manages over C$1 billion (US$966 million) in individual and institutional assets.
