About Xtrackers

Xtrackers' central tenet is to provide a broad range of efficient, high quality index trackers for our investors.

Xtrackers Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) initially launched in 2007 as a specialist in swap-based index replication. Following a period of rapid growth the Xtrackers ETF platform subsequently evolved into one of Europe's largest providers of physical replication ETFs. We have continually developed our ETFs to provide investors with a comprehensive set of quality investment tools for efficient portfolio allocation.

Today, Xtrackers ETFs are listed on eleven stock exchanges globally and have 195.57 B CHF[4] in assets under management making Xtrackers one of the largest providers of ETFs by AUM[1]. There are over 170 Xtrackers ETFs available covering a wide range of asset classes and investment exposures.

You should seek professional advice on all of the foregoing before making any investment decision. The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise, and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not indicative of future returns.

Together we grow.

 

Core ETFs

In 2014, Xtrackers established a range of Xtrackers Core ETFs[2] with annual All-in Fees[3] starting as low as 0.06%. Our Core ETFs are based on the following premises:
  1. Exposure to major equity or fixed income benchmarks
  2. Physical replication (Direct replication)
  3. Cost efficiency

Our Core ETFs are may be considered as core building blocks for a range of investor portfolios.

 

China

Xtrackers is at the forefront of providing access to Emerging Markets and especially China. Our Xtrackers team launched its first China ETF in 2007. We then launched Europe’s first China A-Shares ETF in 2010 and Europe’s first physical China A-Shares ETF in 2015. Xtrackers also launched Europe’s first physical China on-shore bond ETF as well as the first China A-H Shares ETF. In total, Xtrackers offers investors 5 different ETFs to access the Chinese on- and offshore capital markets via cost efficient ETFs. 

 

Currency hedged ETFs

Providing flexible allocation options is part of our approach to offering investors a broad range of efficient, high quality index trackers. Part of this product tool kit is the efficient management of currency risk. We currently offer 38 different currency-hedged exposures with almost EUR 5bn in AUM across equities, fixed income and commodities. Our offering includes EUR, GBP, USD, and CHF-hedged share classes enabling investors to manage currency risk across major currency regions.

 

Strategic beta ETFs

Strategic beta strategies aim to provide higher risk adjusted returns compared to traditional benchmarks by applying alternative weighting or stock selection methodologies. Xtrackers offers a range of strategic beta ETFs across equity, fixed income and commodity benchmarks. For equity investors, factors such as dividends, quality, value, momentum or minimum volatility offer modular approaches around factor risk, which may be used to fine-tune a portfolio. On the fixed income side we offer our "yield plus" and our "quality weighted" approaches, which may enable investors to tilt their portfolios efficiently across the risk return spectrum.

2. Low All-in-fees mainstream benchmark trackers that can be considered suitable (long term) "core" holdings in investors’ portfolios.

3. Investors should be aware that in addition to the All-In Fee, the ETF may incur other costs which may negatively impact the performance of their investment relative to the underlying index. Examples include: Brokerage and other transaction costs, financial transaction taxes or stamp duties as well as potential differences in taxation of either capital gains or dividend assumed in the relevant underlying index, and actual taxation of either capital gains or dividends in the ETF. Investors should also note that currency hedging costs are not included in the All-In Fee. The precise impact of these costs cannot be estimated reliably in advance as it depends on a variety of non-static factors. Investors are encouraged to consult the audited annual- and un-audited semi-annual reports for details.
