AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 9/4/2015

AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 9/4/2015

Assets in actively managed ETFs increased by $355 million in the last two weeks, or 1.6%, to $21.486 billion. There were no new funds which leaves the total at 133.

iShares led the way for inflows at $179 million, followed by $104 million to PIMCO and $91 million at First Trust. Outflows were very small with $7 million each from AdvisorShares and Cambria.

Flows at the strategy level were dominated by Short Term Bond which brought in $358 million, essentially 100% of the net inflow, which is not surprising given the heightened ongoing equity market volatility.

That $358 million inflow was enough to add 176 basis points to the Short Term Bond market share.
