Deutsche Börse is trading a further five db x-trackers I equity index funds from Deutsche Bank’s ETF offering on the Xetra pan-European trading platform.

A new db x-trackers II bond index fund has been tradable since 21 January.

The db x-trackers II Global Sovereign EUR Hedged Index ETF is based on the Deutsche Bank Global Investment Grade Sovereign EUR Hedged Index. The underlying index comprises government bonds from 21 industrialised nations: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and US.

The index hedges currency fluctuations between the euro and the national currencies in question. The index can be increased in the event of a euro zone expansion to include suitable bonds from new euro zone member states.

The db x-trackers MSCI AC Asia ex Japan TRN Index ETF tracks the performance of the MSCI AC Asia ex Japan TRN Index. The index takes free-float market capitalisation into account and aims to measure performance of equity markets in emerging markets and industrialised nations in Asia (with the exception of Japan).

It includes companies with large or medium market capitalization from the eleven country indices for the following markets: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.

The investment objective of the db x-trackers MSCI Pacific ex Japan TRN Index ETF is to track the performance of the underlying MSCI Pacific ex Japan TRN Index. The index takes free-float market capitalisation into account; its goal is to measure the performance of equity markets in industrialised nations of the Asia-Pacific region (excluding Japan). It comprises companies with large and medium market capitalization from Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore.

Investors in the db x-trackers DJ Stoxx 600 ETF participate in the performance of the DJ Stoxx 600 Index, which tracks the performance of 600 large, medium and small cap companies from 18 European countries on a total return basis. A total return index calculates the performance of shares on the assumption that all dividends and distributions are reinvested.

Two other ETFs launched on Xetra offer investors the opportunity to enter into a long and short exposure to the CAC 40 Index at a reasonable cost; in other words, hedging on rising or falling performance of the most significant benchmark index on the French market.

The investment objective of the db x-trackers CAC 40 ETF is to track the performance of the underlying CAC 40 Index. The fund distributes dividends annually unless otherwise decided. The index is weighted by freefloat market capitalization, which aims to reflect the performance of the 40 largest and most liquid equities listed in France.

The db x-trackers CAC 40 Short ETF aims to track the performance of the CAC 40 Short TR Index. The fund does not aim to distribute any dividends. The index does aim to reflect inverse performance of the CAC 40 Index in addition to a pro rata portion of interest based on twice the Eonia rate. A positive change in the CAC 40 Index results in an equal but negative change in the index.

A total of 405 exchange traded index funds are currently listed in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment.
