Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management Increases Creation Limit for ASHR

New York - 1 December 2014

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management today announced that, effective immediately, the creation limit for Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (NYSE Arca:ASHR) (the “Fund”) will increase from the previous limit of one creation unit per day to five creation units per day. The Fund will continue to utilize this new creation units limit for ASHR in order to manage the RQFII quota for purchasing China A shares securities. As a result:

  • ASHR will now accept five creations units each day, where each creation unit is comprised of 50,000 shares. This is an increase from the previous limit of one creation unit per day, announced on November 13, 2014.
  • Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management and the Fund’s sub-advisor, Harvest Global Investments Limited, have worked with the Chinese authorities, as well as various other sources, to increase the RQFII quota for the Fund, to keep in-line with investor demand. Harvest Global Investments Limited is a leading asset manager in China and among the top five global holders of RQFII quota, but there is no assurance that such a future increase will be granted or will be sufficient to meet investor demand.
  • Redemption orders for the Fund will continue to be accepted in the ordinary course of business as described in the Fund’s prospectus.
  • As previously announced on November 13, 2014, Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 500 China A-Shares Small Cap ETF (NYSE Arca:ASHS) will continue to accept one creation unit, comprised of 50,000 shares, each day.
