Deutsche AWM continues expansion of ETP platform with JPX-Nikkei ETF


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) has launched Deutsche X-trackers Japan JPX-Nikkei 400 Equity ETF (JPN), the first US-listed exchange traded fund (ETF) to track the JPX-Nikkei 400 Index, 

The JPX-Nikkei 400 Index employs a rigorous screening process based on return on equity, cumulative operating profit and market capitalisation to select high-quality, capital-efficient Japanese companies.

“We are excited to introduce a new way to deliver Japanese equity exposure to US investors,” says Fiona Bassett, Head of Deutsche AWM’s Passive Business in the Americas. “As we build our presence in the US, Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management continues to develop innovative, indexing products and strategies that anticipate investors’ portfolio needs.”

“We are seeing key institutions, including the Bank of Japan, adopt the JPX-Nikkei 400 Index as a benchmark for increasing allocations to the Japanese equity markets, and we anticipate our investors will follow suit and seek access to this exciting and new benchmark,” says Dodd Kittsley, Head of ETF Strategy for Deutsche AWM in the Americas. “We believe this is a unique opportunity for investors to participate in the Japanese market through this innovative new benchmark index.”

Deutsche X-trackers US ETF business has experienced breakthrough growth in 2014 and 2015. With assets totalling USD 18.5 billion as of 16 June, 2015, an increase of approximately 430 per cent since year-end 2014, Deutsche X-trackers continues to be among the fastest growing ETF franchises in the US. The firm’s global exchange traded products platform has grown to become the world’s fifth largest, with approximately $56.8 billion in assets under management as of 31 December, 2014.
