(the “Company”)

Important notice to the Shareholders of

Xtrackers USD High Yield Corporate Bond UCITS ETF (the “Sub-Fund”)

Dublin, 23 January 2020

Dear Shareholder

Capitalised terms used in this notice have the same meaning as in the latest version of the prospectus of the Company (the “Prospectus”) unless the context otherwise requires.

Background
The investment objective of the Sub-Fund is to track the performance before fees and expenses of the Bloomberg Barclays US High Yield Very Liquid Index ex 144A index (the “Reference Index”). The Reference Index is a subset of the Bloomberg Barclays US Corporate High Yield Index, and is designed to track a more liquid component of the USD-denominated, high yield, fixed rate corporate bond market.

The Reference Index includes securities that meet specific maturity, credit quality and liquidity requirements and excludes 144A tranche securities that do not have an equivalent Regulation S tranche. As such, the Sub-Fund may incest in 144A securities.

Amendment
Subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Ireland, the board of directors of the Company deems it appropriate to make a clarification to the section ‘General Description of the Reference Index’ described in the Sub-Fund’s Supplement, which shall be amended as follows:

The Reference Index is intended to track a more liquid component of the Parent Index, and consists of fixed-rate, high yield, US Dollar denominated Securities. The Reference Index includes securities issued by industrial, utility and financial institutions that meet specific maturity, credit quality and liquidity requirements and excludes 144A tranche securities that do not have an equivalent Regulation S tranche. As such the Reference Index may contain (and therefore the Fund may be invested in) 144A securities.

The amendment will be implemented in the next Supplement on or around 12 February 2020, subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Ireland.

Any further information in relation to the above mentioned change may be obtained by contacting the Xtrackers ETF hotline on +44 (20) 7547 1747 or +49 (69) 910 30549, offices of foreign representatives or by sending an email to Xtrackers@dws.com.

Shareholders should seek advice from their stockbroker, bank manager, legal advisor, accountant or other independent financial advisor. Shareholders should consult their own professional advisers as to the specific tax implications of the termination under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation.
