  • AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 4/25/14 0 comments
    Apr 29, 2014 5:34 PM

    The total net assets in the actively managed ETF space trended down $7 million from the previous week remaining practically unchanged - hovering at $15.6 billion. This slight movement was not attributed to a sideways market. In fact, all but two sponsors showed positive changes since the previous week. PIMCO had a slight decrease of $15 million, but WisdomTree was the largest neutralizer to the actively managed gains with their $155 million drop. This dip was mainly attributed to one of their foreign bond ETFs focused in Asia Pacific ex-Japan local debt countries. As such, most categories were positive from the previous week with foreign bonds showing the biggest loss. Guggenheim and AdvisorShares had the highest positive sponsor increases of about $80 million and $30 million respectively. The short term bond and high yield categories were the highest categorical changes with increase of $95 million and $25 million respectively.

    (click to enlarge) 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.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
