The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board of directors“) hereby informs the shareholders of the Sub-Funds (the”Shareholders“) certain changes to the Benchmark Index of each Sub-Fund, as detailed below (collectively referred to as”Changes“).
Capitalized terms used in this notice will have the same meaning as assigned to them in the latest version of the Company’s prospectus (the “Prospectus”), Unless the context requires otherwise.
A) CHANGES TO THE BENCHMARK INDEX
1. The Benchmark Index of each Sub-Fund is either the DAX® Index or is linked to the DAX® Index (the “Index“). The Index is administered by STOXX Ltd. (the”Index administrator“).
The Index Administrator has announced that as of September 20, 2021 (the “Effective date“), the number of index constituents will be reduced from 30 to 40, so that the index will reflect the performance of the shares of 40 of the largest companies on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange that meet the applicable eligibility criteria.
2. Starting with the September 2021 review, components will be selected based on market capitalization only. Trade turnover will no longer be part of the ranking process. Instead, principals will have to meet minimum turnover requirements.
Full details of the announcement are available at: https://www.dax-indices.com/document/Resources/Market_Consultation/Results_of_Market_Consultation_DAX_Index_ENG.pdf.
For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a material change for each Benchmark Index, and the names, investment policies, risk profiles and fees of the Sub-Funds remain unchanged.
