Deutsche Bank to issue ELEMENTSSM Exchange-Traded Notes linked to the Dow Jones High Yield Select 10 Total Return IndexSM
Deutsche Bank today announced that it will issue ELEMENTSSM Exchange-Traded Notes (ETN) linked to the Dow Jones High Yield Select 10 Total Return IndexSM that will be traded on the NYSE ArcaSM under the ticker symbol DOD1. It will be the first ETN to offer investors exposure to the Dow Jones High Yield Select 10 Total Return Index2, an index which follows the same general concept as the 'Dogs of the Dow' investment strategy. The index is comprised of the ten highest dividend yielding stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and is reweighted and reconstituted at the end of each December.
“’Dogs of the Dow’ ELEMENTS offer investors efficient access to high dividend yielding Dow stocks and is the second ETN Deutsche Bank has issued in recent weeks,” said Christopher Yeagley, Managing Director and Head of Global Investment Solutions Americas at Deutsche Bank. “We are pleased to work with Dow Jones, Nuveen and Merrill Lynch to bring this innovative product to market.”
’Dogs of the Dow’ ELEMENTS are senior unsecured obligations of Deutsche Bank that are linked to the performance of the Dow Jones High Yield Select 10 Total Return Index. Deutsche Bank will issue the ’Dogs of the Dow’ ELEMENTS in denominations of $10 per unit and they will be distributed by Nuveen Investments and Merrill Lynch & Co.
ELEMENTS ETNs are designed to track the total return of specific market indexes and seek to provide convenient access to strategies and markets that traditionally have not been readily available to individual investors. For investor information, please call ELEMENTS: 1-877-ETN-ADVICE (1-877-386-2384).
Last month Deutsche Bank announced the listing of ELEMENTSSM ETNs linked to the Morningstar® Wide Moat FocusSM Total Return Index, which also trade on the NYSE Arca, under the ticker symbol WMW.
