AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 2/19/2016

Assets in actively managed ETFs grew by $327 million, or 1.4%, to $24.355 billion. The fund count now stands at 136 after a ProShares fund changed from a passive to an active strategy.

The largest growth came from First Trust, which had positive fund flows of $70 million, but a net increase of $133 million thanks to favorable market conditions. ALPS, a name we don’t mention often in this report, had a strong week with a $43 million inflow representing an almost 10% increase in assets. State Street, PIMCO and iShares each brought in $30-$40 million. No firm had outflows greater than $10 million.

At the strategy level, income segments led growth with Global Bond increasing by $86 million, Short Term Bond growing by $69 million, and High Yield adding $55 million. As with fund sponsors, there were no strategies with outflows greater than $10 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.
