Change in the DAX index methodology

Tuesday 07 September 2021


We would like to inform you that the index provider STOXX has decided to make changes in the methodology for the Fund benchmark index:

  • The number of shares within the DAX index will increase from 30 to 40 securities;
  • Securities will be selected based on stock-market capitalisation alone, with volumes traded on Deutsche Boerse no longer taken into account.

These changes will come into effect when markets close on 17 September 2021. As a result, starting from 20 September 2021, the shares within the DAX Index will be the 40 largest capitalisations on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. These changes do not change the Fund's name or fees and will be reflected in the Fund's next prospectus.
