AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 12/12/2014

Assets in actively managed ETFs fell $666 million or 3.6% which was right in line with declines in the broad domestic equity indexes. As of the close on December 12, AUM stood at $17.459 billion.

Earlier in the fall we made several mentions of the large asset flows going into First Trust but of late those inflows reversed and this continued last week with an additional $533 million flowing out. In the last month its market share has fallen from over 18% to its current 14%. AdvisorShares was the only other notable name on the outflow list with $94 million.

Inflows were modest across the board with PIMCO bringing $18 million and PowerShares adding $13 million.

There was one new fund issued last week and with it one new fund provider; Validea Funds which launched the Validea Market Legends ETF, a Global Equity ETF that tracks the picks of well-known and well regarded investors.
