(the Sub-Funds)

11 April 2018

We are writing to notify you of certain misstatements in how the Company presented share class past performance data or index past performance data in the Key Investor Documents (KIIDs) of the Sub-Funds for the performance years 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 or 2017.

Details of these misstatements are set out in the Appendix to this notice.

For the 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 performance years, these misstatements were caused by either typographical errors or miscalculation of index and/or share class past performance data.

For the 2015 performance year, a Net Asset Value (NAV) was calculated on 31 December 2015 and this NAV was used to calculate both index and share class past performance data. According to the Prospectus of the Company issued at that time, 31 December 2015 was not an official Valuation Day for the purpose of calculating NAV as certain Significant Markets were closed on this day. The NAV used to calculate both index and share class past performance data was therefore an unofficial NAV. The last official NAV was calculated on 30 December 2015 and the NAV calculated on this day should have been used to calculate both index and share class past performance data for the 2015 performance year.

The nature of these discrepancies is such that they had no impact on the calculation and publication of the NAVs of the Sub-Funds.

Please be assured that upon identification of these misstatements, the Company has implemented robust measures and enhanced controls to substantially mitigate any risk of reoccurrence.

We have now corrected the Sub-Funds’ KIIDs which are available at www.Xtrackers.com.

Capitalised terms used in this letter shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the current Prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.

Further information in relation to the above may also be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under ‘Contact Information’ below or by sending an email to Xtrackers@db.com.

We thank you for your continuing support of the Company.
