Fund Description

Main investments. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a broad range of both traditional asset classes (such as equity and fixed income investments) and alternative asset classes (such as real estate including real estate investment trusts (REITs), infrastructure, convertibles, commodities, currencies and absolute return strategies).Investments may be made directly in securities and derivatives (see “Derivatives” subsection) or in DWS funds (i.e., mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and other pooled investment vehicles managed by DWS Investment Management Americas, Inc., the fund’s investment advisor, or one of its affiliates). The fund may also invest in securities of unaffiliated mutual funds or ETFs when the economic exposure to a particular market or sector is not available through a DWS fund. DWS funds and other funds and ETFs in which the fund may invest are referred to as “underlying funds.” The fund’s allocations among direct investments and underlying funds will vary over time and at times the fund may operate as a fund-of-funds, investing almost entirely in underlying funds. The fund may be appropriate for investors seeking total return consistent with moderate levels of overall risk.Under normal market conditions, the fund invests between 50% and 70% of assets in equity securities, including investments in underlying funds that invest primarily in equity securities, and between 30% and 50% of assets in fixed income securities, including investments in underlying funds that invest primarily in fixed income securities. Variations outside of the stated ranges in the target percentage allocation for equity securities and fixed income securities are permitted up to plus or minus 10% of the fund's assets. The fund may also allocate up to 20% of fund assets in alternative asset classes in place of either fixed income or equity allocations.The fund can buy many types of securities (directly or indirectly through investment in underlying funds), among them common stocks, including dividend-paying stocks, convertible securities, corporate bonds, government bonds, municipal securities, inflation-indexed bonds, mortgage- and asset-backed securities and ETFs. The fund may invest in securities of any size, investment style, category or credit quality (including high yield debt securities, commonly referred to as junk bonds) and from any country (including emerging markets).Management process. Using a risk/return strategic asset allocation process, portfolio management allocates the fund’s assets among various asset categories. Portfolio management periodically reviews the fund’s allocations and may adjust them based on current or anticipated market conditions, to manage risk consistent with the fund’s overall investment strategy or based upon other relevant considerations.Portfolio management also utilizes a tactical asset allocation process to adjust allocations in response to short-term market changes from time to time. Tactical allocations reflect views from DWS’s Chief Investment Officer and global research platform. Tactical allocations, which may include derivative instruments, have shorter investment horizons as positions reflect short-term views and may be implemented as: (i) changes to a fund’s strategic asset allocation, (ii) through the addition of new allocations, or (iii) through changes to prior tactical allocations.
