AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 11/7/2014
After a five week run of declining assets, actively managed ETFs posted their second week in a row of gains adding $1.64 billion or 9.8% to now total $18.320 billion. The net gain is attributable to First Trust and its recently launched Short Term Bond Fund which brought just under $1.5 billion. This addition to First Trust took its active ETF market share from just under 13% to greater than 18%.
PowerShares, WBI and iShares also stood out for net inflows ranging from $90 million to $40 million with Alternatives, Alternative Income and Currency funds leading the way at the category level after Short Term Bond.
PIMCO saw the largest outflows at $423 million mostly coming from the Global Bond category. The only other category to lose meaningful assets was Foreign Bond which shed $56 million.
There were four new funds that started trading last week; two from fixed income funds from First Trust a commodities fund from PowerShares and Cambria launched an equity fund.
