Deutsche Bank launches exclusive ETFs on short indices


Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) will today list five new db x-trackers (Exchange Traded Funds) on Deutsche Boerse Frankfurt (XETRA), two of which will allow investors the opportunity to benefit from falling markets. This is a first in the German market. Deutsche Bank is launching the first ETFs in Europe on the DJ EURO STOXX 50® Short Index, and exclusively on the ShortDAX and DJ STOXX® GLOBAL SELECT DIVIDEND 100 Index. In addition ETFs are being launched on the DJ EURO STOXX SELECT DIVIDEND® 30 Index and the FTSE100 Index.

“With these two ETFs on short indices Deutsche Bank offers investors in Europe the possibility to participate via an ETF 1:1 on falling markets for the first time. Investors will be now able to bet on falling markets or hedge entire portfolios without having to use derivatives”, says Thorsten Michalik, Head of Exchange Traded Funds at Deutsche Bank.

In addition, through the DJ EURO STOXX SELECT DIVIDEND® 30 Index ETF, European investors will have access to a global dividend strategy through an ETF for the first time. The DJ EURO STOXX SELECT DIVIDEND® 30 Index has outperformed the DJ EURO STOXX50® Index by an average of 16% per annum over the last seven years.

These five new db x-trackers ETFs will be the first of a series of 41 ETFs that Deutsche Bank will be launching across Europe over the coming weeks. Combined with the existing eight db x-trackers ETFs, Deutsche Bank will become the third largest ETF provider in Europe, measured by the number of ETFs. The new db x-trackers ETFs will cover indices on a variety of asset classes – equities, bonds, cash market, credit and commodities.

The growth of the ETF market in Europe reflects the strong demand from private and institutional investors for passive investment instruments that are attractively priced and easily accessible. db x-trackers ETFs are already available to retail investors in Germany through monthly savings plans. 

Garth Ritchie, Head of Equities in Europe for Deutsche Bank comments, "These new ETFs demonstrate Deutsche Bank's commitment to and belief in the value of the ETF market. We will continue to bring new, innovative products to the ETF markets utilising our world leading trading and structuring capabilities."

ETFs were first introduced in the USA in 1993 and in Europe in 2000. Currently, there are over 900 ETFs listed globally with over EUR 490 billion assets under management. In Europe there are over 300 ETFs available with assets under management of approximately EUR 80 billion.  By 2011 it is widely forecast that assets in ETFs globally will exceed EUR1,500 billion.
