AdvisorShares Investments, LLC Brings a Tailored ETF Investment Vehicle to the
Marketplace With Exemptive Relief

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AdvisorShares Investments, LLC is
the first of three funds to have exemptive relief, allowing them to marry the
positive features of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) with professional money
managing.

Historically, ETFs are designed to track an index, like the S&P 500. They are
passively managed: when the index makes a trade, the ETF makes the same trade
without speculation. Operational efficiency, transparency, liquidity and tax
efficiency are some of the numerous advantages to ETFs. AdvisorShares' exemptive
relief enables them to pair these advantages with a professional money manager
who actively makes decisions for the fund.

"What makes AdvisorShares so special," said CEO and Founder Noah Hamman, "is
that we package the benefits of professional money management with the benefits
of exchange-traded funds to give shareholders a better investment option."

So far, the package seems to be working: even though AdvisorShares' first
product, the Dent Tactical ETF (NYSE:DENT), has been in the market for only four
weeks, it is already the largest and fastest growing actively managed ETF,
trading over 1 million shares in the first four days of its launch. ETFs trade
in real time and can be bought and sold by individuals.

Harry S. Dent Jr., one of the managers of the DENT Tactical ETF, will be
featured in the upcoming winter issue of EQUITIES Magazine. Affiliates, Officers
and/or Directors of Equities Magazine own shares of Fund.com (OTCBB:FNDM). Be
