Further fee cuts to Xtrackers ETFS

DWS has cut the TER on two more of its ETFs, following other cuts announced in September.

The unhedged share class of Xtrackers II USD Emerging Markets Bond Ucits ETF (2D share class) has been reduced to 0.25% from 0.35%, while the TER for Xtrackers MSCI Europe Ucits ETF (1D share class) has fallen to 0.12% from 0.25%.

In September, the TER on four share classes was reduced for the Xtrackers MSCI EMU Ucits ETF. The currency-hedged share classes were trimmed to a TER of 0.17% from 0.25%, while the unhedged share class went to 0.12% from 0.15%.

Also in September, the TER on the sterling-hedged share class of the Xtrackers S&P 500 Ucits ETF was lowered to 0.09% from 0.20%.

Simon Klein, DWS’s head of Passive Sales for Europe and Asia Pacific, said: “We are happy to pass on the benefits of economies of scale to our investors as our ETF volumes increase, and as always our aim is to make Xtrackers some of the most competitive ETFs on the market.”

The Xtrackers ETFs that have had their fees reduced this year represent a combined €3.9bn in assets.
