AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 8/29/2014

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 8/29/2014

The actively managed ETF space enjoyed a larger gain than in recent weeks growing by $1.11 billion, or 6.61%, to $17.965 billion. The lion’s share of the gain was generated by newcomer WBI which launched ten new funds that were apparently pre-sold very effectively and now have $1.03 billion or a 5.77% market share. The WBI funds were the only new funds to hit the market last week.

AdvisorShares led the way in new assets for previously existing fund providers with $38 million followed by $16 million for First Trust. ProShares reported $15 million in new assets primarily attributable to its recently launched credit spread ETFs. WisdomTree stands out on the other side of the ledger with $70 million in outflows.

Asset growth by market segment was dominated by global equity at just over $1 billion which reflects the WBI launch mentioned above. Alternatives attracted $42 billion and High Yield $35 million.
