Important notice to the Shareholders of

(each a “Fund”, together the “Funds”)
15 November 2019
This notice is to inform you of the intention of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) to de-list the Funds from the London Stock Exchange (the “LSE”) as set out in Annex 1 to this notice (the “De-listing Funds”).
Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the same meaning ascribed to them in the latest version of the prospectus of the Company (the “Prospectus”) unless the context otherwise requires.
Due to low demand and volumes traded on exchange in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Articles and Prospectus of the Company, the Board of Directors has resolved to proceed with the de-listing, with effect from Tuesday, 17 December 2019 (the “De-listing Date”), of all outstanding shares of the De-listing Funds that are listed on the LSE (the “De-listing”).
For the avoidance of doubt, the De-listing Funds will not be terminated or compulsorily redeemed.
The De-listing Funds will be de-listed from the LSE on the De-listing Date. Therefore, requests for redemption or subscription for shares in the De-listing Funds on this stock exchange may only be made until close of business on Monday, 16 December 2019 (the “Last Trading Date”).
After the De-listing Date, the De-listing Funds will remain listed on one or more other stock exchanges. Shareholders should refer to the table appended to this notice at Annex 1 for a selection of the stock exchanges on which the De-listing Funds will remain listed. In order for you to sell your shares after the De-listing Date, you would need to instruct your authorized intermediary bank or stockbroker to realign your shares to one of those stock exchanges. Shareholders should note that your authorized intermediary bank or stockbroker may impose administration charges to realign shares to other stock exchanges.
Shareholders can apply for redemption in accordance with the Prospectus, free of any charge, during a one-month period starting on the date of this publication and ending on the Last Trading Date.
Please note that the Company does not charge any fee for the sale of shares in the secondary market. Orders to sell shares through a stock exchange can be placed via an authorised intermediary or stockbroker. However, shareholders should note that orders in the secondary market may incur costs over which the Company has no control and to which the abovementioned disapplication of the redemption fee does not apply. Shareholders should consult with their authorised intermediary or stockbroker in relation to these costs.
Any further information in relation to the De-listing may be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under ‘Contact information’ below, from the offices of foreign representatives, by visiting www.Xtrackers.com or by sending an email to Xtrackers@dws.com.
If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant, tax advisor or other independent financial advisor.
