Deutsche AWM launches suite of international high dividend yield, currency-hedged ETFs


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) has launched four new high dividend yield, currency-hedged exchange traded funds (ETFs) on its Deutsche X-trackers platform.

The new ETFs are: 

Deutsche X-trackers MSCI EAFE High Dividend Yield Hedged Equity ETF (HDEF)
Deutsche X-trackers MSCI Eurozone High Dividend Yield Hedged Equity ETF (HDEZ)
Deutsche X-trackers MSCI Emerging Markets High Dividend Yield Hedged Equity ETF (HDEE)
Deutsche X-trackers MSCI All World ex-US High Dividend Yield Hedged Equity ETF (HDAW)
Income-oriented, international equity investments currently offer higher yields than most other liquid asset classes. The Deutsche X-trackers MSCI High Dividend Yield Hedged Equity ETF suite provides a currency-neutral approach to international equity markets in an effort to preserve income and potentially reduce volatility. MSCI’s suite of high-dividend yield indices apply a series of screens to emphasise dividend sustainability, persistency, and quality with the goal of selecting companies with dividend yields greater than or equal to 1.3 times the dividend yield of the parent index.

“In this low interest rate environment, we believe that we are delivering unique solutions to investors seeking income-oriented investments,” says Fiona Bassett (pictured), Head of Deutsche AWM’s Passive Business in the Americas. “As a European-based bank, we will continue to leverage our local insight to offer the most comprehensive suite of currency-hedged international equity ETFs in the US.”
