AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 3/4/2016

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 3/4/2016

Assets in actively managed ETFs contracted by $256 million, or 1.04%, to $24.195 billion. The fund count held steady at 137.

The story last week in fund flows appears to be related to assets leaving havens and perhaps moving to riskier or more volatile market segments; in-line with rising equity prices of the last few weeks.

The Short Term Bond Category, which is by far the largest category, declined by $581 million. There were some notable gainers including $86 million to Currency, $78 million to High Yield, and $60 million to Alternative Income.

At the provider level PIMCO dropped $287 million, Fidelity lost $161 million, and State Street contracted by $158 million. First Trust was the largest gainer with overall growth of $158 million.
