AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 1/23/2015

Actively managed ETFs had a $598 million lift in assets last week which amounted to a 3.4% gain up to $17.844 billion.

The vast majority of the increase was $533 million going to First Trust with most of that going to the firm’s Enhanced Short Term Maturity fund which is part of the Short Term Bond category.

AdvisorShares had $21 million in net inflows followed by $19 million into WBI. The only outflows of note were $22 million from PIMCO. Flows by category, after Short Term Bond were led by $51 million into Alternative Income, $23 million into the Alternative category which differs from Alternative Income, $22 million to US Equity and $21 million into Tactical. Outflows were quite modest with $10 million coming out of Foreign Bond.

The large flow into First Trust was enough to move the needle for market share taking the firm’s share from 12.2% up to 14.78%.
