The Xtrackers FTSE Developed Ex US Comprehensive Factor ETF is not in any way connected to or sponsored, endorsed, sold or promoted by the London Stock Exchange Group plc and its group undertakings (collectively, the “LSE Group”).

DEEF Risks: Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Stocks may decline in value. Foreign investing involves greater and different risks than investing in US companies, including currency fluctuations, less liquidity, less developed or less efficient trading markets, lack of comprehensive company information, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. Funds investing in a single industry, country or in a limited geographic region generally are more volatile than more diversified funds. Because the fund seeks to provide exposure to stocks based on the following multifactors – value, momentum, quality, low volatility and size – it is expected exposure to such investment factors will detract from performance in some market environments, as more fully explained in the fund’s prospectus. This fund is non-diversified and can take larger positions in fewer issues, increasing its potential risk. Performance of the Fund may diverge from that of the Underlying Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, use of sampling strategies or operational inefficiencies. An investment in any fund should be considered only as a supplement to a complete investment program for those investors willing to accept the risks associated with that fund. Please read the prospectus for more information.
