(the “Company”)

Important Notice to Shareholders of

Xtrackers MSCI Korea UCITS ETF (ISIN: LU0292100046)

and Xtrackers MSCI Taiwan UCITS ETF (ISIN: LU0292109187)

(each a “Sub-Fund”, together the “Sub-Funds”)

27 October 2020

This letter is to inform you on behalf of the board of directors of the
Company (the “Board of Directors”) about certain changes to the Sub-Funds
of the Company, as outlined below.

Background

The current investment objective of Xtrackers MSCI Korea UCITS ETF is to
reflect the performance of the MSCI Total Return Net Korea Index (the
“Original Reference Index” in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Korea UCITS ETF)
which is designed to reflect the performance of the shares of certain
companies in Korea. The current investment objective of Xtrackers MSCI Taiwan
UCITS ETF is to reflect the performance of the MSCI Total Return Net Taiwan
Index (the “Original Reference Index” in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Taiwan
UCITS ETF) which is designed to reflect the performance of the shares of
certain companies in Taiwan (together the “Original Reference Indices”).

Changing market circumstances have caused the Original Reference Indices to be
no longer consistently satisfying the criteria of a “financial index” as
set out in the Law and Regulations as defined in the Prospectus.

Changes

As a result of the foregoing and in accordance with the provisions of the
Prospectus, the Board of Directors has decided to change the Original
Reference Indices as further described hereafter.

The Original Reference Index in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Korea UCITS ETF
will be replaced with the MSCI Korea 20/35 Custom Index (the “New Reference
Index” in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Korea UCITS ETF).

The Original Reference Index in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Taiwan UCITS ETF
will be replaced with MSCI Taiwan 20/35 Custom Index (the “New Reference
Index” in relation to Xtrackers MSCI Taiwan UCITS ETF).

(together the “New Reference Indices”)

The methodology of each New Reference Index will be the same in all material
respects to the corresponding Original Reference Index apart from the weight
of the largest group entity in each New Reference Index will be capped at
31.5% and the weights of all other entities will be capped at 18% at each
quarterly index rebalancing (that is 35% and 20% respectively, with a buffer
of 10% applied on these limits at each index rebalancing).

Further details on the index methodology of the New Reference Indices can be
found on http://www.MSCI.com (http://www.MSCI.com) .

Impact of the Changes

For the avoidance of doubt each Sub-Fund’s name, investment policy, risk
profile and fees remain unchanged.

Timing for Implementation

It is intended that the changes will take effect on or about 1 December 2020.

General Information

Further information in relation to the changes set out herein may be obtained
from the offices of foreign representatives or by sending an email to
Xtrackers@dws.com.

Copies of the revised Prospectus and the key investor information documents'
of the Sub-Funds reflecting the changes will be made available on the website
of the Company (www.Xtrackers.com), and copies thereof may be obtained on
request free of charge at the registered office of the Company or at the
offices of foreign representatives, once available.

Capitalised terms not defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in
the Prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.

Shareholders who subscribe for Shares in the Sub-Funds on the primary market
and who do not agree with the above changes are entitled to redeem their
Shares in the Sub-Funds in accordance with the Prospectus. Such redemptions
shall be free of any Redemption Charge from the date of this notice until 5
p.m. (Luxembourg time) on 27 November 2020. Please note that the Company does
not charge any redemption fee for the sale of Shares in the secondary market.
Orders to sell Shares through a stock exchange can be placed via an authorised
intermediary or stockbroker. Shareholders should note that orders in the
secondary market may incur costs over which the Company has no control and to
which the above exemption on redemption charges does not apply.

If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek
advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other
independent financial advisor.

Neither the contents of the Company's website nor the contents of any other
website accessible from hyperlinks on the Company's website is incorporated
into, or forms part of, this announcement.
