DWS ready to return

Four years after stepping away of the retail sector, DWS is set to return to the industry.

Once the proud sponsor of Aston Villa Football Club, DWS disappeared as a retail brand in Britain after its parent, the Deutsche Bank group, sold the entire fund range of DWS Investments to Aberdeen Asset Management. It is making 10 of its highest profile funds available to British investors, although it has yet to add any of them to the fund platforms. Time can only tell if it will be second time lucky, although I would hazard a guess that there will no football sponsorships just yet.
