(the Sub-Funds)

30 August 2018

We are conducting a thorough and ongoing review of the way in which we present Key Investor Information Document’s (KIID) performance data. We are writing to notify you of certain misstatements in how the Company presented share class past performance data or index past performance data in the KIIDs of the Sub-Funds for the performance years from 2008 to 2016.

Details of these misstatements are set out in the Appendix to this notice.

The nature of these discrepancies is such that they had no impact on the calculation and publication of the NAVs of the Sub-Funds.

Please be assured that upon identification of previous misstatements, the Company is implementing more robust measures and enhanced controls to substantially mitigate any risk of reoccurrence.

We have now corrected the Sub-Funds’ KIIDs which are available at www.Xtrackers.com.

Capitalised terms used in this letter shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the current Prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.

Further information in relation to the above may also be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under “Contact Information” below or by sending an email to [email protected].

We thank you for your continuing support of the Company.

Neither the contents of the Company's website nor the contents of any other website accessible from hyperlinks on the Company's website is incorporated into, or forms part of, this announcement.
