Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management announced today that the db X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares Fund (ASHR), launched at $108 million. This initial capital investment is the largest for any equity exchange-traded fund (ETF) since 2007. 1 “The initial investment in ASHR demonstrates the ground breaking nature of this ETF and is a positive indicator of pent up demand for direct exposure to mainland Chinese equities,” said Martin Kremenstein, head of Passive Asset Management for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management Americas. The launch of ASHR is one more example of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management’s ability to package the global access, expertise and intelligence of Deutsche Bank into first-of-a-kind exchange-traded funds (ETF). The group recently launched the db X-trackers Municipal Infrastructure Revenue Bond Fund (RVNU) – the only ETF on the market to offer investors municipal bond exposure while mitigating the general obligation risk – that similarly leveraged the Bank’s global strengths. Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management’s U.S. exchange-traded products (ETP) platform was also the first to provide U.S. investors with convenient access to broad-based commodity exposure when it launched in 2006. Currently the platform has $12 billion in assets under management. The Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management global ETP platform, which was launched in 2006, has risen to become the fifth largest in the world with approximately $66 billion in assets under management as of September 30, 2013. 2 For more information about the ETPs available in the U.S., visit: http://www.dbxus.com.

RISKS: International investing involves greater and different risks than investing in U.S. companies and funds investing in a single country or in a limited geographic region tend to be more volatile than more diversified funds. Emerging markets, such as China, tend to be more volatile than the markets of more mature economies, and generally have less diverse and less mature economic structures and less stable political systems than those of developed countries. Special risks associated with investments in Chinese companies include exposure to currency fluctuations, less liquidity, less developed or less efficient trading markets, lack of comprehensive company information, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards, the nature and extent of intervention by the Chinese government in the Chinese securities markets; and the potential unavailability of A shares. The CSI 300 Index tracks the performance of 300 stocks traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. An investment in this fund should be considered only as a supplement to a complete investment program for those investors willing to accept the greater risks associated with investments in China. db X-trackers funds are distributed by ALPS Distributors, Inc.
