AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 12/9/2016

Assets in actively managed ETFs had a strong week, tacking on $634 million and crossing a new big figure to $29. 252 billion in AUM. There was one new fund from Virtus, which brings the overall total to 160.

The big story was the $273 net gain for iShares. First Trust also had a strong week with $172 million while Virtus added $77 million and State Street chipped in with $67 million. The declines were modest, led by $16 million from WisdomTree.

The breakdown by category was widely diversified, which could perhaps be taken as recognition that income investing could require active management as rates move higher. High Yield Bond led the way with $138 million, followed by Short Term Bond with $117 million, Alternative Income with $89 million, and $78 million for Alternative Bond. Currency was the only decliner, contracting by $30 million.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs including possible loss of money. Shares are actively managed and are subject to risk similar to stocks, including those related to short selling and margin maintenance. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply.
Shares are not individually redeemable and owners of the shares may acquire those shares from the Funds and tender those shares for redemption to the Funds in Creation Unit aggregations only, typically consisting of 50,000 shares.
