DWS is the brand name under which DWS Group GmbH & Co. KGaA and its subsidiaries operate their business activities. 

This website contains certain data in the format of the European ESG Template (“EET”) in relation to investment funds of DWS registered for public distribution (hereinafter referred to as “EET Data”). The EET Data are created by DWS against the background of certain new disclosure requirements applicable to DWS as of August 2, 2022 and January 1, 2023. In this context the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/1253 of 21 April 2021 amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/565 ("MiFID II") and Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector ("Disclosure Regulation") are of relevance.

The purpose of providing the EET Data via the EET is to assist those Distributors wishing to comply, or to become compliant (the “DWS Distributors”), with requirements pursuant to MiFID II and the Disclosure Regulation. The EET Data is also made available upon request to investors or potential investors of the relevant funds subject to applicable law and regulations (the “DWS Investors”) in order to comply with the principle of fair treatment of investors. DWS Distributors and DWS Investors are hereinafter referred to as a “Receiving Party” or jointly as “Receiving Parties”.

Important Note: The provision of EET Data via the EET upon request of the Receiving Party does neither constitute distribution nor investment advice with regard to an investment fund of DWS. Further, any investment restrictions or sales restrictions applicable to the relevant investment fund remain unaffected. DWS does not permit the use of the EET Data for any other purpose than stated in this document.

Subject to the terms of any separate agreement the Receiving Party may have entered into with DWS, if any, the EET Data is made available to the Receiving Party under the following conditions:

  • The Receiving Parties should assess themselves independently whether or whether not the EET Data fits their own purposes. DWS does not accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever in relation to the EET Data except in case of gross negligence or willful misconduct.
  • It is the DWS Distributor’s sole responsibility to make any necessary or recommended adjustments to the information in the EET Data.
  • DWS makes the EET Data available to DWS Investors, upon request and on a voluntary basis only, without making any representation and/or warranty that the information contained in the EET Data is fit for any purpose. In particular, the EET Data displayed in the EET format may as such, without further explanations and additional information, in particular the information contained in the relevant sales documentation of the investment fund (e.g. fund prospectus, KIID) not be sufficient or suitable to assist in taking an informed investment decision.
  • DWS reserves the right to discontinue disclosing information as well as the assistance in relation to DWS Distributor’s MiFID II requirements at any time.
