AdvisorShares Active ETF Market Share Update – Week Ending 1/30/2015

Actively managed ETF assets contracted by $199 million or 1.1% to $17.644 billion in the final week of January.

The biggest numbers not surprisingly are on the outflow side of the ledger as WisdomTree saw $91 million leave and PIMCO contracted by $77 million. Guggenheim and First Trust had smaller outflows of $19 million and $13 million respectively. Inflows were small with PowerShares leading the way with $8 million followed by $6 million for ALPS which is a name we don't often mention in this report.

Broken out by strategy the largest outflows occurred with Short Term Bond with $158 million and $72 million from Currency. Global Bond had $23 million of inflows followed by $17 million into Alternatives and $13 million into Alternative Income.

Last week's flows were large enough to change the industry's market share numbers.
