The aim is for your investment to reflect the performance, before fees and expenses, of the MSCI World Consumer Staples Total Return Net Index (Index) which is designed to reflect the performance of the listed shares of certain companies from various developed countries. The shares are issued by companies in the consumer staples sector. The consumer staples sector covers, for example, food, food retailing, and household and personal products. A company’s weighting on the Index depends on its relative size based on the combined value of a company’s readily available shares as compared to other companies. 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 at least quarterly. To achieve the aim, the Fund will attempt to replicate the Index by buying a substantial number of the shares in the Index in the same proportion as the Index as determined by DWS entities. The Fund may employ techniques and instruments in order to manage risk, reduce costs and improve results. These techniques and instruments may include the use of derivatives. The Fund may also engage in secured lending of its investments to certain eligible third parties to generate additional income to offset the costs of the Fund. No dividends will be paid on your shares. You may redeem your shares on demand on a daily basis.
