Deutsche Bank products have won three out of five exchange traded product (ETP) categories at the Financial Times and Investors Chronicle Fund Awards.

The db x-trackers FTSE 100 ETF came top in the Best ETP for UK Equity Exposure category, while the db x-trackers MSCI Emerging Markets TRN Index ETF was named Best ETP for Global Emerging Markets Exposure, with the Most Innovative ETP award going to the DB Physical Gold Hedged ETC.

“We felt db X-trackers’ FTSE 100 ETF was the clear winner for its low cost and minimal tracking error,” reported the Investors Chronicle. The db x-trackers FTSE 100 ETF has a total expense ratio of 0.3% per annum.

In identifying winners, the Investors Chronicle editorial team said they took into consideration tracking error, cost, security for investors, transparency and investor communications.

With around €35 billion in assets under management across more than 250 ETFs, db X-trackers is one of the world’s largest and most established ETF providers. db X-trackers has over 50 emerging markets ETFs in its product line-up, offering regional, country-specific and sector-based exposures. db X-ETC was launched in February 2010 and has around €2.4 billion in assets under management. ETCs offer investors a straight forward way to trade well known commodities such as gold and oil. ETFs and ETCs are ISA and SIPP eligible and are free from stamp duty.
