AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 2/5/2016
Assets in actively managed ETFs increased by $50 million, or 0.2%, to $23.967 billion. The fund count held steady at 134.
As equity markets have rolled over in recent months, the story of fund flows has focused on assets going into fund sponsors and categories that generally have lower volatility. Last week, First Trust garnered $80 million in positive flows followed by $50 million to State Street. Outflows were seen from PIMCO with a tide-turning $122 million and $26 million from WisdomTree.
At the strategy level, Short Term Bond was the winner with a net increase of $127 million and High Yield was a distant second with $28 million. Global Bond declined by $93 million, perhaps over ever-increasing global uncertainty, and US Equity had negative flows of $10 million but an overall decline of $29 million in the face of declining markets.
