Income Investing – Adding ESG to the Equation

As investors reposition themselves following the Covid-19 outbreak, many investors have turned to strategies that focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Where ESG was once thought of as purely a “doing good” approach, recent markets have shown that ESG considerations can be critical for long-term risk management. In this upcoming webcast, DWS and ETF Trends will dig into potential benefits of ESG investing, and show how you can utilize ESG strategies to possibly enhance—or even replace—clients’ core portfolio positions.

The opinions and forecasts expressed are those of the speakers and may not come to pass.

War, terrorism, economic uncertainty, trade disputes, public health crises (including the recent pandemic spread of the novel coronavirus) and related geopolitical events could lead to increased market volatility, disruption to U.S. and world economies and markets and may have significant adverse effects on the fund and its investments.

Important risk information
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Stocks may decline in value. Bond investments are subject to interest-rate, credit, liquidity and market risks to varying degrees. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Foreign investing involves greater and different risks than investing in US companies, including currency fluctuations, less liquidity, less developed or less efficient trading markets, lack of comprehensive company information, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. Emerging markets tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the markets of more mature economies, and generally have less diverse and less mature economic structures and less stable political systems than those of developed countries. Funds investing in a single industry, country or in a limited geographic region generally are more volatile than more diversified funds. Performance of a fund may diverge from that of an underlying index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, use of sampling strategies or operational inefficiencies. There are additional risks associated with investing in high-yield bonds, aggressive growth stocks, non-diversified/concentrated funds and small- and mid-cap stocks which are more fully explained in the prospectuses, as applicable. 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. Please read the applicable prospectus for more information.

View a prospectus
Carefully consider the fund’s investment objectives, risk factors, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the fund’s prospectus, which may be obtained by calling 1-855-329-3837 or by downloading a prospectus at dws.com/xtrackers-etfs. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
