From the Effective Date, the following collateral margins will apply to the BoNY Collateral:
1. Common stock margin will be reduced from 110% to 105%; and
2. Corporate bonds margin will be reduced from 110% to 105%.
The above mentioned changes will be reflected in a revised Prospectus to be issued on or around the Effective Date. Revised copies of the Prospectus reflecting the above Change will be available on the website of the Company (www.etf.deutscheam.com), and may be obtained free of charge at the Company’s registered office or at the foreign representatives’ offices, once available.
No costs or expenses relating to the above announcement and its implementation will be borne by the Company, the Sub-Funds and/or their investors.
Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the current Prospectus unless the context otherwise requires.
