DeAWM launches Eurozone Hedged Equity ETF


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) has launched Deutsche X-trackers MSCI EMU Hedged Equity ETF (DBEZ), an international currency hedged equity exchange traded fund (ETF). 

DBEZ provides investors with exposure to stocks in the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), commonly known as the Eurozone, and tracks the MSCI EMU IMI Dollar Hedged Index. DBEZ is the 12th ETF on Deutsche X-trackers’ platform of currency hedged products.

“Today’s launch reaffirms Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management’s commitment to providing innovative strategies that meet investors’ current and emerging portfolio needs,” says Fiona Bassett, Head of Deutsche AWM’s Passive Business in the Americas. “We are excited to leverage our unique European market leadership and international expertise as we introduce Deutsche X-trackers MSCI EMU Hedged Equity ETF, our fourth currency hedged ETF for US investors into European equities.”

DBEZ joins Deutsche X-trackers MSCI Europe Hedged Equity ETF (DBEU) to provide investors with several options for currency hedged access to European equities in an environment marked by a depreciating euro and a strengthening US dollar. Supported by this ongoing investment theme, DBEU has grown to more than USD700 million in assets under management. Similarly, another member of Deutsche AWM’s currency hedged suite of products, Deutsche X-trackers MSCI EAFE Hedged Equity ETF (DBEF), now holds over USD1.3 billion.

Deutsche AWM’s US exchange traded products platform has approximately USD11 billion in assets under management as of September 30, 2014. The firm’s global exchange traded products platform, launched in 2006, has grown to become the world’s fifth largest, with approximately USD68 billion in assets under management as of September 30, 2014.
