Funds that invest in specific countries or geographic regions may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. Securities focusing on a single country may be more volatile. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable currency fluctuations, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Investments in currency involve additional special risks, such as credit risk, interest rate fluctuations, derivative investment risk including increased volatility and less liquidity, and the effect of varied economic conditions. Under certain circumstances, the fund may be unsuccessful in hedging the fund's currency exposure.An investor should consider the db-X MSCI Currency-Hedged Equity Funds' investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing.For this and more complete information about the db-X MSCI Currency-Hedged Equity Funds, call 877-369-4617 or visit www.dbxetf.com for a copy of the applicable prospectus.Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.About db-X Deutsche Bank's db-X Group is among the world's leading providers of exchange-traded products with currently more than 200 products totaling over $70 billion in assets under management in the United States, Europe and Asia.
