AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 8/21/2015

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 8/21/2015

Assets in actively managed ETFs grew by $257 million, or 1.2%, to $21.173 billion. There were no new funds launched last week leaving the total count at 133.

The big mover at the provider level was the $408 million inflow at PIMCO. The other fund provider flows were generally quite small with much of the difference between the overall $257 million net move being attributable to declines in most markets last week.

At the category level the only story was the $433 inflow to Short Term Bond which is consistent with the PIMCO’s gains mentioned. The PIMCO numbers were also large enough to influence the market share data as well. PIMCO’s share grew 157 basis points to 34.37%, which was roughly in line with the 167 basis point increase for Short Term Bond up to 32.87%.
