db x-trackers launches ETFs on Mexico and European real estate stocks

db x-trackers, Deutsche Bank’s exchange-traded fund platform, has launched ETFs on Mexico and European real estate stocks on the London Stock Exchange.

The two new db x-trackers ETFs enable investors to participate in the performance of exchange-listed real estate investment trusts and real estate companies from European industrialised countries and the Eurozone.

The FTSE Epra/ Nareit indices are market capitalisation-weighted indices that replicate the performance of European exchange-listed equity REITs and real estate companies and offer a diversified coverage of the real estate market.

An innovative aspect of the db x-trackers MSCI Mexico TRN Index ETF is that investors can track the performance of Mexican companies with high and medium market capitalisation for the first time.

Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America after Brazil and is characterised by dynamic growth. Deutsche Bank Research’s analysts expect an economic growth of 3.5 per cent in 2010.

Manooj Mistry, head of db x-trackers UK, says: “With these products, db x-trackers has expanded its range and offerings, giving investors an efficient and low-cost access to exchange-listed Reits and real estate companies, and the performance of Mexican companies. The MSCI Mexico TRN Index ETF provides exposure to an increasingly popular market with an attractively low all-in fee.”
