DWS has launched a new ESG-filtered Xtrackers ETF focused on the USD corporate bond market.The Xtrackers ESG USD Corporate Bond UCITS ETF provides exposure to over 1000 USD investment-grade corporate bonds complying with ESG criteria1. The ETF references a Bloomberg Barclays index with MSCI ESG research. 

In addition, DWS has also launched a new EUR-hedged share class of its existing Xtrackers MSCI World ESG UCITS ETF, which tracks the MSCI World Low Carbon SRI Leaders Index. This follows the July launch of a new Xtrackers ETF providing exposure to the ESG EUR corporate bond short duration market.
“These are just the latest additions to our rapidly expanding suite of DWS Xtrackers ETFs designed to meet the surging demand for ESG exposure,” said Simon Klein, DWS’s Global Head of Passive Sales.
The Xtrackers ESG USD Corporate Bond UCITS ETF has an annual all-in fee of 0.16%, and has listed on the London Stock Exchange and Germany’s Xetra stock exchange.
