The Xtrackers MSCI All China Equity ETF (CN US) tracks the MSCI China All Shares Index which captures large and mid-cap representation across China A-shares, B-shares, H-shares, Red-chips, and P-chips. The index aims to reflect the opportunity set of China share classes listed in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen. The fund typically gains its exposure to the China A-share components of the index by investing in the Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (ASHR).

CN has approximately $33 million in assets under management and a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.62% due to an ongoing contractual fee waiver in place. Its gross expense ratio is 0.96%.

The Xtrackers Germany Hedged Equity ETF (DBGR US) tracks the MSCI Germany US Dollar Hedged Index which provides exposure to German equity markets, while at the same time mitigating exposure to fluctuations between the value of the US dollar and the euro.

DBGR has approximately $43m in AUM and a TER of 0.45%.

“Through the addition of CN and DBGR to the program, Schwab clients will have the ability to access the Chinese and German equity markets in a cost-efficient way,” said Fiona Bassett, head of passive asset management in the Americas. “Over the past two years, we have continued to expand our relationship with Schwab ETF OneSource, which now offers 13 of our Xtrackers funds to investors, including factor, emerging markets and Eurozone ETFs.”
