AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 5/1/2015

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 5/1/2015

Assets in actively managed ETFs were essentially flat on the week dropping $5 million to $20.105 billion marking the second week in a row above the $20 billion milestone.  The fund count remained steady at 125.

PIMCO saw the largest flows by far with $32 million of outflows and a $70 million decline in overall assets. As the firm with the most assets in the space they will often be at or near the top on a regular basis. Guggenheim was the other loser of note on the week with $10 million in outflows.

At the category level Short Term Bond was the biggest mover with a decline of $38 million followed by $8 from Alternative Income. On the plus side both Alternative and Global Bond had overall growth of $12 million. Global Bond actually had $50 million in fund flows but the space fared poorly on a price basis last week.

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.
