AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 10/6/2017
Assets in actively managed ETFs grew by more than 1% last week, netting $569 million to now print at $41.42 billion. The fund count remained steady at 191.
State Street was the big winner on the week with a gain of $162 million followed by $119 million for First Trust. Guggenheim lost $10 million while ETF Securities contracted by $8 million.
At the category level, Bank Loan was the leader by far, adding $156 million which is somewhat ironic given that just the week before Barron’s had a column that was negative on the space. Short Term Bond moved ahead by $99 million and $94 million moved into Alternative. Declines were negligible, led by $2 million from Foreign Bond.
