Deutsche Bank today launched a new investment tool designed to help investors make investment decisions. The new tool, “Fundamental Index Views”, will take a close look at up to 20 of the world’s major equity, bond, credit and commodities indices. Deutsche Bank analysts evaluate the prospects for the indices involved and give them a positive, neutral or negative rating. These analyses are constantly updated to reflect any changes in the evaluation of an index.
“Investment managers and other investors are increasingly shifting to invest in indices, for instance via exchange traded funds, which have already gained wide recognition on the capital market,” says Lars Slomka, Head of German Equity Strategy. “Our Fundamental Index Views cover a wide range of asset classes and gives investors a useful tool for any investment decision.”
Deutsche Bank’s first index analysis looks at the DAX index, and evaluations of other indices are to follow. For the DAX index, Deutsche Bank analysts give a positive outlook. Deutsche Bank expects the German economy to grow by 2.0 percent this year, ahead of the other large eurozone economies. Also, the companies that make up the DAX index are considered attractive in terms of fundamental criteria such as their price-earnings ratios and dividend yields.
The results of the “Fundamental Index Views” are available online at www.dbxtrackers.com
