ETF Investors Embrace a Different Way to Germany

Although competition is intense, including among hedged Germany ETFs, Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has one of the most expansive (and growing) lineups of currency hedged ETFs with 11, covering countries such as Brazil, Japan and the U.K. in addition to Germany.

German equities were among developed Europe’s best performers last year, but there is still possible upside to be had in German stocks.

“Germany is attractive on valuation compared to the U.S.,” said Kremenstein. “There is a premium with Germany compared to peripheral European markets, but that premium equals the resilience in German stocks. You’re getting value for what you’re paying for in Germany.”

DBGR’s rivals are the WisdomTree Germany Hedged Equity Fund (NasdaqGS: DXGE) and the iShares Currency Hedged MSCI Germany ETF (NYSEArca: HEWG).
