The fund provides eligible investors exposure to a variety of liquid real assets including global REITs, listed infrastructure, commodity futures, natural resource equities and Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities.

The Deutsche Real Assets Collective Investment Trust Fund is managed holistically across all liquid real assets while utilizing our best ideas and expertise in the underlying sectors.”
