Xtrackers reaches 15-year anniversary


Xtrackers by DWS writes that it has recorded another year of positive flow momentum as the ETF platform celebrates the 15-year anniversary of its first product listings. 

Xtrackers UCITS ETFs listed in Europe and Asia recorded more than EUR16 billion of net inflows in 2021, higher than the EUR13.6 billion of inflows recorded the previous year. 

Assets under management in Xtrackers ETFs grew to EUR154 billion at the end of 2021, while assets invested in US-listed Xtrackers (40-Act ETFs) reached EUR21 billion. The firm writes that the record flow and assets under management numbers mark Xtrackers out as the most successful Europe-based ETF provider operating globally in 2021 (flow and assets under management data source: ETFGI, December 31, 2021).

“Xtrackers continues to go from strength-to-strength, and we have a number of initiatives in place to ensure 2022 builds on our already impressive flow momentum,” says Simon Klein, Global Head of Passive Sales.

Xtrackers has seen strong flows from institutional investors positioning for a changing market environment, as well as from retail investors via savings plans. Xtrackers launched a no-fee ETF savings plan in Germany in 2010, and has been responsible for a number of other industry firsts, such as the first direct replication, physical ETF providing exposure to China’s onshore equity market in 2014.

Demand last year was especially strong for Xtrackers growing range of ESG ETFs. DWS offers Xtrackers ESG ETFs across various equity and fixed income segments. More product launches are planned for this year, especially in the ESG space.

Klein adds: “We will continue to be innovative and nimble in serving the needs of our clients. The trend towards low-cost passive investing still has some way to go, especially in Europe, and Xtrackers will continue to be at the forefront of that change as a leading provider of ETFs.”
