September 19, 2011 3:29pm NEW FILING NYSE:QEH

AdvisorShares has filed paperwork with the SEC for a “QAM Equity Hedge ETF” (NYSE:QEH). The QAM Equity Hedge ETF (the “Fund”) seeks investment results that exceed the risk adjusted performance of approximately 50% of the long/short equity hedge fund universe as defined by the


HFRI Equity Hedge (Total) Index constituents. They did no specify an expense ratio in the initial filing.

PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

The Fund is a ‘‘fund of funds’’ that seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in both long and short positions in other exchange-traded funds (“ETFs’’) and exchange-traded notes (“ETNs”) that offer diversified exposure to global regions, countries, investment styles (i.e., value, growth), sectors and industries. Commerce Asset Management (the “Sub-Advisor”) seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by taking long and short positions in underlying ETFs and underlying ETNs that the Sub-Advisor believes, in the aggregate, will track the performance of a selected universe of long/short equity hedge funds.

Long/short equity hedge funds typically buy stocks, ETFs, ETNs or currencies that the hedge fund managers expect will appreciate, and concurrently either sell short stocks, ETFs, ETNs or currencies that the hedge fund managers expect will decline in value or to hedge market or sector exposures.

In seeking to establish a long or short position in such instruments, the Fund may use swaps based on published indices, including international indices. The Fund also may invest in exchange-traded currency trusts (collectively, with ETFs and ETNs, “ETPs”). On a day-to-day basis, the Fund may hold money market instruments, cash, other cash equivalents, and ETPs that invest in these and other highly liquid instruments to collateralize its derivative positions.
