AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 6/21/2013
Over the past week, total AUM for the active ETF space decreased by over $150 million as prices fell in both the equity and fixed income markets. AUM in the “Global Bond” and “US Bond” categories continued to fall last week, as values fell and certain funds faced redemptions. Some of the money coming out of these ETFs could possibly be going into ETFs from the “Short Term Bond” category, which continued to see creations and passed $4 billion in total assets this week. Many investors use these ETFs instead of cash or money market funds in an attempt to get modest returns without taking on too much market risk. AUM in the “Foreign Bond” and “Currency” categories is also down, as the dollar continues to strengthen and investors are shunning international markets in these volatile times. AUM in the “Alternative” category ended slightly higher, in part because of creations but also because some of these ETFs, which employ strategies uncorrelated to the general market, went up last week.
