DeAWM takes steps to accommodate exceptional investor demand for ASHR


Due to high investor demand, Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (ASHR) is approaching the limit of its currently available RQFII quota for purchasing China A shares securities. 

As a result:

• Effective trade date January 21, 2015, ASHR will accept one creation unit, comprised of 50,000 shares, each day.

• Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management and ASHR’s sub-advisor, Harvest Global Investments Limited, continue to work with the Chinese authorities to obtain an increase in RQFII quota to keep in-line with investor demand. Harvest Global Investments Limited is a leading asset manager in China and among the top five global holders of RQFII quota.

• While there can be no assurance that such an increase will be granted or that any increase will be sufficient to meet investor demand, this interim creation limit is expected to be temporary.

• When such an increase, if any, is granted, or sufficient redemptions in ASHR allow, ASHR will resume accepting creation units as usual.

• Redemption orders for ASHR will continue to be accepted in the ordinary course of business as described in ASHR’s prospectus.
