db X-trackers offers exposure to high dividend Asian stocks


Deutsche Bank’s exchange-traded funds (ETF) platform, db X-trackers, has expanded its emerging markets segment in London with, among others, the launch of an ETF that provides exposure to Asian equities that aim to offer a higher than average dividend yield.

The db x-trackers MSCI AC Asia Ex Japan High Dividend Yield Index ETF offers exposure to an index-tracking basket of companies that have been screened for their dividend suitability. Securities entering the index must have a dividend yield at least 30% higher than the dividend yield of the MSCI AC Asia ex Japan Index. In a low interest rate environment, high dividend stocks could be an attractive opportunity for investors searching for yield.

The new ETF has been listed on the London Stock Exchange alongside two other new db X-trackers emerging markets products: the db x-trackers MSCI Philippines IM TRN Index ETF, and the db x-trackers MSCI BRIC TRN Index ETF. The former tracks the performance of large, mid and small-cap companies in the Philippines, while the latter offers collective exposure to Brazil, Russia India and China.

“The launch of these new db x-trackers provides investors with cost-effective, transparent and liquid emerging markets investment tools. Due to our robust swap-based replication technology, we can offer products on emerging markets at various levels, including that of the individual country, while keeping tracking difference to a minimum,” says Manooj Mistry (pictured), London-based head of db X-trackers for the UK.
