AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 5/1/2015

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 5/1/2015

Assets in actively managed ETFs were essentially flat on the week dropping $5 million to $20.105 billion marking the second week in a row above the $20 billion milestone.  The fund count remained steady at 125.

PIMCO saw the largest flows by far with $32 million of outflows and a $70 million decline in overall assets. As the firm with the most assets in the space they will often be at or near the top on a regular basis. Guggenheim was the other loser of note on the week with $10 million in outflows.

At the category level Short Term Bond was the biggest mover with a decline of $38 million followed by $8 from Alternative Income. On the plus side both Alternative and Global Bond had overall growth of $12 million. Global Bond actually had $50 million in fund flows but the space fared poorly on a price basis last week.
