Deutsche Asset Management Reduces Fees across Suite of International Mutual Funds

NEW YORK--()--Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM) today announced reductions of the net expense ratios on a suite of US-domiciled global and emerging markets mutual funds, as well as management fee reductions on certain funds. The expense reductions, which became effective June 1, 2017, bring the average net expense ratios of these funds to the lowest cost quartile in their respective Morningstar categories, providing significant savings to the funds’ shareholders.

“We are committed to bringing Deutsche Asset Management’s international capabilities and unique global perspective to investors in the Americas,” said Brian Binder, President of Deutsche Funds and Head of US Product & Fund Administration. “With the European and emerging markets in the early stages of the growth cycle, and many investors overweight in US equities, clients are looking for investment opportunities overseas. Because expense ratios can have a direct impact on performance, we are pleased to introduce these reductions as clients seek to diversify their portfolio across a wider world of international markets.”
