Important notice to shareholders of the Company
10 January 2020
This letter is to inform you on behalf of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) about certain changes to the sub-funds of the Company (the “Funds”), as outlined below.
Changes for Direct Investment Funds Only
DWS Investment GmbH acts as investment manager of the Company for Direct Investment Funds (the “Investment Manager”). The Investment Manager may currently delegate all or part of its investment management responsibilities, including sub-portfolio management functions, with respect to Direct Investment Funds to DWS Investments UK Limited.
With effect from on or about 12 February 2020 it is intended to extend the practical operation of the delegation, in order that the Investment Manager may delegate, from time to time and in accordance with an agreed process, certain of its sub-portfolio management functions to one or more affiliate or subsidiary entities of DWS Group GmbH & Co. KGaA (the "DWS Group").
For the avoidance of doubt, this change will not have an impact on the Management Fees disclosed in the supplement for each Fund.
Further information in relation to the changes may be obtained by sending an email to Xtrackers@dws.com.
Copies of the revised Prospectus, supplements for the Funds and the key investor information document of the Funds reflecting the changes will be made available on the website of the Company (www.Xtrackers.com), and copies thereof may be obtained on request free of charge at the registered office of the Company or at the offices of foreign representatives, once available.
Capitalised terms not defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in the Prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.
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 or other independent financial advisor.
Neither the contents of the Company's website nor the contents of any other website accessible from hyperlinks on the Company's website is incorporated into, or forms part of, this announcement.
