Opalesque Industry Update - Deutsche Bank announces the launch of five new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) linked to currency-hedged MSCI International indexes. These ETFs are designed to provide investors direct exposure to international equity markets and aim to protect against fluctuations in value of the U.S. dollar and non-U.S. currencies.

The ETFs will be listed for trading on the NYSE Arca are: db-X MSCI Japan Currency-Hedged Equity Fund, db-X MSCI Brazil Currency-Hedged Equity Fund, db-X MSCI Canada Currency-Hedged Equity Fund, db-X MSCI EAFE Currency-Hedged Equity Fund, and db-X MSCI Emerging Markets Currency-Hedged Equity Fund.

Deutsche Banks newest ETFs expand a product line that now includes 49 Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) in the US with $14.9 billion assets under management (AUM), and 281 ETPs globally with $67 billion AUM. The ETFs seek to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses are applied, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of their respective benchmark indexes. The funds are designed to provide exposure to equity securities globally, while at the same time seeking to mitigate exposure to fluctuation between the value of the U.S. dollar and non-U.S. currencies by also investing in currency forwards.

Deutsche Bank is filling a need in the marketplace by offering investors direct access to global markets with a built-in hedge against currency fluctuations, said Martin Kremenstein, Chief Investment Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Deutsche Banks db-X business. The newest Deutsche Bank ETFs provide investors direct access to some of the worlds most significant international markets with the goal of allowing investors to better manage their portfolios currency risk by capitalizing on Deutsche Banks industry-leading foreign exchange expertise.

Deutsche Bank has been ranked the world's largest FX house by marketshare by Euromoney for seven years running.

db-X is Deutsche Bank's exchange-traded product platform, which provides institutional and retail investors access to the Bank's global resources and expertise.Press release: Source
