Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management alters ETF product line and enhances Swedish offering
Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management alters ETF product line and enhances Swedish offering Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) is altering its exchange-traded fund (ETF) line up on the Nasdaq Stockholm by de-listing certain funds while rolling out a suite of new offerings.
Ten db X-trackers ETFs will be de-listed from the Stockholm market while seven new listings will take place with a view to offering investors a broad range of international equity exposures, spanning both developed and emerging equity markets, as well as single countries. Dividend and small cap strategies for selected developed markets will also be offered. Additional ETFs from Deutsche AWMs Core-ETFs range will also be added to the product suite.
Those ETFs that are de-listing in Stockholm will continue to be listed on exchanges elsewhere in Europe. Following the changes, Deutsche AWM will continue to be the biggest ETF manager locally based on number of listed ETFs.
“We first listed ETFs on the Nasdaq OMX in 2010 and our continuing commitment to the local market is reflected in the enhanced product line-up. Our strategy is to deliver relevant international equity exposure locally, so investors in the region can use our ETFs as building blocks for cost-effective and diversified portfolios,” said Erik Rotander, Head of Nordics, Passive Investments, at Deutsche AWM.
Deutsche AWM’s European-listed db X-trackers ETFs have generated almost EUR 8 billion of inflows year-to-date (Source: Deutsche AWM, 13 August, 2015). This follows the successful move to become one of the Europe’s leading providers of physical ETFs following a programme of switching replication strategy on some of its largest funds by assets under management.
A table of db X-trackers ETFs that will constitute the new Nasdaq Stockholm-listed product suite – including ETFs due to list – is below, as well as a list of those ETFs de-listing. A Q&A on the alteration of the product line-up is available at www.etf.deutscheawm.com
