Deutsche Asset Management Launches Deutsche US Multi-Factor Fund

New fund provides access to the strategy behind Deutsche X-trackers Russell 1000 Comprehensive Factor ETF

NEW YORK--()--Deutsche Asset Management announced today the launch of its new Deutsche US Multi-Factor Fund (the Fund), a mutual fund that leverages the investment strategy employed by its Deutsche X-trackers Russell 1000 Comprehensive Factor exchange-traded fund (ETF) (NYSE Arca: DEUS).

Our goal at Deutsche Asset Management is to provide clients with flexible access to products and solutions across a wide range of investment opportunities,” said Brian Binder, President of Deutsche Funds and Head of US Product & Fund Administration. “Through deliberate, consistent and direct factor exposure, the Deutsche US Multi-Factor Fund’s objective is to potentially make a significant contribution to outperforming traditional market-capitalization weighted benchmark indices, while lowering risk possibilities and adding diversification to the portfolio.”

Deutsche X-trackers launched its factor ETFs suite with the release of DEUS alongside another multi-factor fund in November 2015.

In our view, factor investing straddles the intersection of active and passive asset management,” said Fiona Bassett, Head of Passive Asset Management, Americas. “The new fund complements Deutsche Asset Management’s existing suite of products and showcases our ability to deliver the unique factor-based approach via an index fund to a broader scope of investors.”

Deutsche US Multi-Factor Fund tracks the Russell 1000 Comprehensive Factor Index, which is designed to capture exposure to large-cap US equities using five factors: quality, value, momentum, low volatility and size. The Fund seeks exposure to the universe of stocks in the US equity market, while titling individual weights towards those proficient in all five factors, assembling the best team of stocks.

DEUS - Important risk information: Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Stocks may decline in value. 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. 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. See the prospectus for details.
