o      DWS implementing sustainable management fee cuts on 20 Xtrackers ETFs, as well as an Xtrackers silver ETC

o      Investors to benefit from more competitive products as assets under management increase

o      Fees cut on ETFs representing over EUR 10 billion in assets

The annual all-in fee for the Xtrackers MSCI USA Swap UCITS ETF, which has over EUR 2.5 billion in assets under management1, will be halved, moving from 0.30% to 0.15%, while fee cuts are also being implemented on a range of global sector Xtrackers ETFs, on the EUR-hedged share class of the Xtrackers MSCI World Swap UCITS ETF, on two broad commodity basket Xtrackers ETFs, on emerging markets and Asia-Pacific exposures, on the Xtrackers MSCI Europe Value UCITS ETF, and also on an Xtrackers physical silver exchange-traded commodity (ETC).

 “We aim to make Xtrackers ETFs and ETCs as competitive as possible, looking at all times to take advantage of economies of scale so we can provide our investors with highly efficient index trackers,” said Simon Klein, DWS’s Global Head of Passive Sales. “These are not short term fee cuts. They will be sustained.”

The fee cuts are effective from this Wednesday, 2nd December, 2020.

DWS has a track record of lowering fees as the exchange-traded product industry has increased in scale. The last major round of Xtrackers fee cuts took place in October 2018, when annual all-in fees were reduced on a number of fixed income and European equity Xtrackers.

The Xtrackers that have seen their prices fall in this latest round of management fee cuts represent combined assets under management of more than EUR 10 billion.
