DWS is introducing four new Xtrackers ETFs designed to offer investors a focus on high-dividend stocks across various regions. The new ETFs aim to provide a combination of high-dividend focus and sustainability, aligning with criteria set by MSCI. They track different variants of the MSCI High Dividend Yield Low Carbon SRI Screened Select index series, which was constructed using optimization processes to reconcile potentially conflicting objectives like dividend yield, market development tracking, and ESG criteria.
These ETFs are listed on Deutsche Börse, with two of them covering the US and global equity markets additionally listed on the London Stock Exchange. The index construction process significantly reduces the portfolio’s CO2 intensity and fossil commodity exposure, excludes companies with controversial activities, and focuses on high-dividend stocks while giving consideration to quality companies for more stable long-term performance.
