DWS launches two Xtrackers thematic ETFs


DWS is providing investors with exposure to future trends with the launch of two Xtrackers thematic ETFs that use a sophisticated and unique screening methodology designed to pick stocks most likely to cash-in on up-and-coming technological advances.

The Xtrackers Future Mobility UCITS ETF* and the Xtrackers Artificial Intelligence and Big Data UCITS ETF have listed on the Deutsche Boerse. The former is designed to provide exposure to companies that are most likely to benefit from a range of future mobility trends, such as the emergence of autonomous vehicles, the switch to electric and hybrid vehicles, and related trends such as electric and lithium batteries. The latter aims to provide exposure to companies most likely to see future earnings growth stemming from developments such as deep learning, cloud computing, image recognition, speech recognition and chatbots, and related themes such as natural language processing.
The ETFs track specially developed indices that use a unique filtering methodology, which itself uses AI processing. The methodology also focuses on identifying companies with patents in place that are most likely to make those companies significant future revenue generators (see Notes to Editors for more detail). The geographic scope of the indices is global. 
“Our thematic ETFs are designed to focus in on up to 100 companies globally that are most likely to be the revenue winners of tomorrow, given the big societal shifts we’re seeing on the back of rapid technological advancement. Thanks to the advanced stock filtering methodology developed for the indices, we are able to provide the next generation of thematic products,” says Michael Mohr, Head of ETF Product Development.
The new ETFs use direct, physical replication and have annual all-in fees of 0.35 per cent.
