Deutsche expands physical ETF footprint with Japan launch

Deutsche expands physical ETF footprint with Japan launch

Deutsche Asset and Wealth Management has launched an exchange traded fund (ETF) physically tracking Japan’s Nikkei 225 index.

The db X-trackers Nikkei 225 Ucits ETFs ‘direct replication’ invests in the underlying index constituents, and joins the firm’s existing ‘indirect replication’ – or swap based – ETF on the Japanese market.

Manooj Mistry, head of ETFs EMEA at the firm, said: ‘We’ve noted a pick-up in interest this year from investors looking to take Japanese equity market exposure, so the launch of this new ETF is perfectly timed.’

The ETF, which has a total expense ratio of 0.5%, is the latest direct replication product launched by the predominantly swap-based issuer, adding to its physical range comprising the FTSE 100, Euro Stoxx 50 and Euro Stoxx 50 ex Financials ETFs.

Deutsche also offers GBP-hedged exposure to Japanese equities via a share class of the db X-trackers MSCI Japan index Ucits ETF.
