DWS Global Equity Agribusiness Fund
The philosophy for the DWS Global Equity Agribusiness Fund is based on demographic trends.
Increasing population, economic growth and the ongoing urbanisation trend will drive food demands.
Predictions suggest that the demand for food and other agricultural goods and services will double
over the next generation. Furthermore, a dramatic shift in nutritional preferences to a higher intake of
protein occurs as a result of a global wealth effect.
Limited farmland will result in a booming demand for agrichemicals and seed together with newly
developed agricultural methods. Globalisation and new free trade commitments will lead to
increased trade in agricultural products. Agricultural commodity prices are expected to increase
following trends in hard commodity prices.
We believe that the global agribusiness market is set to be one of the fastest growing segments in
the market. The DWS Global Equity Agribusiness Fund intends to invest all the way from
agricultural commodities to consumer products. The Fund invests in promising companies in land
and plantation, seed and fertiliser, planting, harvesting, protecting and irrigation, food processing
and manufacturing companies, offering investors the opportunity to capture value at various points
along the “food chain”.
Our universe is subject to regular review and can be modified as needed; it is not constrained as it is
