Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 500 China A-Shares Small Cap ETF ups creation limit


The Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 500 China A-Shares Small Cap ETF (NYSE Arca:ASHS) is to increase the number of creation units that it will accept from one creation to five creations per day, effective on trade date 8 April, 2015.

Launched in May 2014, ASHS is one of the first US-listed ETF to provide investors with direct access to small cap China A-shares equities. ASHS seeks to track the CSI 500 Index, which holds 500 small cap companies listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. The launch of ASHS expanded Deutsche AWM’s innovative suite of ETFs that offer direct access to Chinese securities, which began in November 2013 with Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares Fund (ASHR), one of the first US-listed ETFs to provide investors direct equity exposure to the China A-shares market.

The breakthrough success experienced in 2014 by Deutsche AWM’s Passive business in the Americas has continued in 2015. With assets totalling USD12.1 billion as of 31 March, 2015, a 175% increase since year end, Deutsche X-trackers continues to be among the fastest growing ETF franchises in the US. The firm’s global exchange traded products platform, now with 14 currency-hedged ETFs, has grown to become the world’s fifth largest, with approximately USD56.8 billion in assets under management as of 31 December, 2014.
