Xtrackers MSCI World UCITS ETF
The MSCI Total Return Net World Index (Index) is designed to reflect the performance of the shares of certain companies in various developed countries. The companies making up the Index are large and medium sized companies based on the combined value of a company's readily available shares as compared to other companies. A company's weighting in the Index depends on its relative size. The Index aims to represent 85% of the readily available shares in each industry sector in developed countries. As of 30 June 2013, the Index consists of the following 23 developed markets: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. The underlying constituents of the Index are listed in multiple currencies. The Index is calculated on a total return net basis which means that all dividends and distributions by the companies are reinvested in the shares after tax. The Index is reviewed and rebalanced on a quarterly basis and may also be rebalanced at other times in order to reflect corporate activity such as mergers and acquisitions. The Index is calculated in US Dollars on a daily basis. $
