  • DWS launches highly fee competitive Nasdaq-100 ETF
  • Provides exposure to the heavily technology weighted Nasdaq-100 Index
  • Three further Xtrackers ETFs also listed

DWS has launched an Xtrackers exchange-traded fund (ETF) providing exposure to the Nasdaq-100 Index with a highly competitive annual all-in fee of 0.2%. The index, which consists of 100 of the largest domestic and international non-financial companies listed on the US's Nasdaq Stock Market, skews heavily towards technology stocks.

The Xtrackers NASDAQ 100 UCITS ETF listed today on the Deutsche Börse and will list tomorrow on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

Simon Klein, DWS's Global Head of Passive Sales, commented: "As investor portfolios evolve to be positioned for the post Covid-19 innovation economy, we expect demand for our extremely competitively priced Nasdaq 100 UCITS ETF to be high."

The Xtrackers NASDAQ 100 UCITS ETF uses direct, physical replication and has an accumulation dividend distribution structure.

Meanwhile, also today, DWS has listed the Xtrackers MSCI USA Industrials UCITS ETF, the Xtrackers MSCI USA Communication Services UCITS ETF, and the Xtrackers MSCI EMU ESG UCITS ETF, again on the Deutsche Börse, with LSE listing to follow tomorrow.

Key risks

Investors should note that the Xtrackers UCITS ETFs are not capital protected or guaranteed and investors should be prepared and able to sustain losses of the capital invested up to a total loss.

Shares in the Xtrackers UCITS ETFs which are purchased on the secondary market cannot usually be sold directly back to the relevant fund. Investors must purchase and redeem such shares on the secondary market with the assistance of an intermediary (e.g. a market maker or a stock broker) and may incur fees for doing so (as further described in the applicable prospectus). In addition, investors may pay more than the current net asset value of a share in a Xtrackers UCITS ETF when buying shares on the secondary market, and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling such shares on the secondary market.

Investments in funds involve numerous risks including, among others, general market risks, credit risks, foreign exchange risks, interest rate risks and liquidity risks. The value of an investment in a Xtrackers UCITS ETF may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount of their original investment.
