MiFID II

From January 3, 2018, on, investment firms which engage in investment services under the Directive 2014/65/EU (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive – „MiFID II“) have to comply with certain new requirements for the distribution of investment funds under the respective national implementation laws in the individual Member States of the European Union.

As part of the new rules, investment firms are required to identify or review and refine, as the case may be, the target market for each financial instrument they distribute. This means that they have to specify the type(s) of client for whose needs, characteristics and objectives the financial instrument is compatible. Further, MiFID II introduces new cost disclosure requirements which aim at increasing cost transparency for investors on a quantitative as well as on a qualitative level. Accordingly, investment firms have to disclose all relevant costs to the client; i.e. those relevant to the investment service and those relevant to the product. The costs have to be aggregated and provided ex-ante (i.e. before the client purchases a product) as well as ex-post, as the case may be, during the lifetime of the investment on at least a yearly basis.

The asset management companies pertaining to DWS support this process by delivering relevant data to the investment firms to enable them to fulfil their new legal obligations. To provide an enhanced level of transparency, the target market and material product cost related MiFID II data are additionally displayed here below with regard to the relevant investment fund.

Important Notes:

The following data is provided on a voluntary basis only and may as such, without further explanations and additional information, i.e. in particular the information contained in the relevant sales documentation of the investment fund (e.g. fund prospectus, KIID) not be sufficient or suitable to assist a potential investor in taking an informed investment decision. It is therefore recommended that investors also carefully read the sales documentation prior to any potential investment decision, and, in particular in case of any questions, consult their investment advisor.

The information on ongoing product costs may deviate from the cost data contained in the relevant sales documentation of the investment fund (e.g. the KIID). The reason for this is that the requirements to display ongoing costs and charges at product level pursuant to the new MiFID II regulations go beyond the existing disclosure regulations applicable to the asset management companies under their relevant regulatory frameworks (i.e. the UCITS Directive or the AIFM Directive and their respective national implementation laws). For example, the estimated transaction costs of an investment fund are not part of the description of the ongoing costs in the relevant KIID established by the management company. Under MiFID II, an investment firm will however have to disclose such costs as part of the costs of the product in good time prior to a potential investor’s investment decision. Thus, the ongoing costs related to the product displayed here below as “total ongoing costs of the product” may, due to differences in the calculation and disclosure methodology, deviate from the sales documentation of the fund.

DWS does not accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever in relation to the data except in case of gross negligence or wilful misconduct.
