AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 10/03/2014

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 10/03/2014

Assets in actively managed ETFs fell by 4.1% to $16.954 billion marking the fourth week in a row of net declines. The vast majority of the decline came from one issuer and one category, that being PIMCO and the Global Bond category which are obviously tied to Bill Gross’ departure and move to Janus.

Specifically PIMCO had $629 million leave its funds followed by $105 million from AdvisorShares and $19 million from WisdomTree. iShares and First Trust were the only gainers of note adding $19 million and $10 million respectively.

Short Term Bond was the only category with meaningful inflows adding $90 million. Aside from Global Bond, large outflows were seen with $83 million leaving High Yield, $21 million exiting US Bond and the $18 million shed by Foreign Bond.

Also of note is that the PIMCO news moved the needle slightly in market share with the firm going from a 44% market share to 43%.
