DWS wins two awards at the Insurance Asia News Institutional Asset Management Awards 2023

DWS has been named 'Best ETF Manager' and 'Best Passive Asset Manager' at the InsuranceAsia News Institutional Asset Management Awards 2023.

InsuranceAsia News cited the experience Xtrackers by DWS has in ETF development, the breadth of its product range and the extensive work it has put into investor education made DWS a worthy winner of the awards.

Over the past decade in Asia, DWS has made great strides in building its Xtrackers ETF business and establishing itself as a major player in the market. As a leading provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) funds, it has launched several industry firsts in the ETF space, providing sought-after niche exposures and benefiting from the global strength of being one of the world's largest ETF providers.

Demand has been particularly strong for its growing range of Xtracker ESG ETFs. In 2022, DWS introduced unique Paris Aligned Benchmark ETFs and in early 2023, DWS became the first asset manager to expand its Xtrackers range with the listing of ETFs focusing on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Sophia Kim, Head of Xtrackers Sales APAC, said: “It is a proud moment for us that the industry is recognising our position in the market as a leading index solutions provider and innovator in the ESG space". She added: "Our strategic focus on innovation across our ETF suite and our ability to deliver first-of-its-kind solutions allows us to consistently meet the evolving needs of investors.”

At DWS, education is an important aspect of the passive management landscape, where investors are attracted by the ease of investing combined with affordability. As a result, investors are using ETFs as the building blocks of their long-term savings and retirement plans. Xtrackers runs regular roadshows to educate investors on how to best manage their ETF holdings.

Vanessa Wang, Head of Asia Pacific, said: “We are deeply grateful for the awards we received from InsuranceAsia News once again this year. This recognition is one of the many testaments to DWS’ commitment to passive investing education and capability in providing outstanding investment solutions for our clients.”
