The cross-listings follow the ETFs’ debut on the Deutsche Börse in September this year and cross-listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

The ETFs are based on sector sub-indices of the MSCI USA Index, which is designed to measure the performance of the large- and mid-cap segments of the US equity market. With more than 600 constituents, the index covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalization in the US.

At the launch, Simon Klein, head of passive distribution, EMEA and APAC, Deutsche Asset Management, commented: “We already have sector ETFs for Europe and the world. The new sector ETFs based on the MSCI USA give investors the flexibility to trade at a more granular level than region or country. As ETFs are used more tactically, this kind of granularity is important.”

The ETFs and their assets under management are as follows:

db x-trackers MSCI USA Consumer Discretionary Index UCITS ETF (XUCD) ­– $6.2m
db x-trackers MSCI USA Consumer Staples Index UCITS ETF (XUCS) ­– $4.7m
db x-trackers MSCI USA Financials Index UCITS ETF (XUFN) ­– $126m
db x-trackers MSCI USA Information Technology Index UCITS ETF (XUTC) ­– $6.8m
db x-trackers MSCI USA Health Care Index UCITS ETF (XUHC) ­– $4.8m
db x-trackers MSCI USA Energy Index UCITS ETF (XUEN) ­– $5.2m

The ETFs each have a total expense ratio of 0.12%.
