DWS Xtrackers exchange-traded products (ETPs) have broken through the EUR 100 billion mark in assets under management (AUM), as investors continue to be attracted to the Europe and Asia-listed UCITS exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and exchange-traded commodities (ETCs), and to the US-listed 40-Act ETFs.
As of the end of Q3, 2019, Xtrackers ETPs had EUR 104.9 billion in assets globally (Source: DWS, as at 30 September, 2019). DWS Xtrackers is the second largest ETF manufacturer and promoter in Europe, and the first Europe headquartered ETF business to achieve EUR 100 billion in assets under management (Source: DWS: 24 October, 2019).
“Since launching our first ETFs in 2007 we have been committed to offering quality tracking products to investors across the globe. That focus on the investor will always be our driver,” said Manooj Mistry, DWS’s Global Head of Index Investing.
Xtrackers ETFs are listed on eleven exchanges globally, with over 170 Xtrackers available covering a wide range of asset classes and investment exposures.
Simon Klein, Head of Passive Sales, Europe & Asia-Pacific, commented: “DWS Xtrackers has met this important milestone at a time when we continue to evolve to meet the aspirations of our clients. Many large investors today, for example, have a focus on stewardship, which is now an integral part of our investment process.”

Investors should note that investments made are not capital protected or guaranteed and investors should be prepared and able to sustain losses of the capital invested up to a total loss.
Shares/Units in ETPs which are purchased on the secondary market cannot usually be sold directly back to the relevant fund. Investors must purchase and redeem such shares/units on the secondary market with the assistance of an intermediary (e.g. a market maker or a stock broker) and may incur fees for doing so (as further described in the applicable prospectus). In addition, investors may pay more than the current net asset value of a share/unit in an ETP when buying shares/units on the secondary market, and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling such shares/units on the secondary market.
Investments in funds involve numerous risks including, among others, general market risks, credit risks, foreign exchange risks, interest rate risks and liquidity risks. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up.
