Investors are increasingly turning to dividend-paying equities because of the income they tend to generate, the stability they can offer—and much more. But some exchange-traded funds (ETFs) track the performance of indexes that use the kind of backward-looking dividend growth screens that can keep the companies currently growing their dividends the fastest out of your portfolio. WisdomTree's family of forward-looking dividend growth Funds is designed to help you capitalize on today’s dividend growth trends across domestic and international markets.

CAPTURING INTERNATIONAL DIVIDEND GROWTH

You probably already appreciate the importance of international investing. But chances are, you may be under-allocated in this important asset class. The WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Dividend Growth Fund may enable you to better capitalize on international dividend growth trends. And our construction process for the WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Dividend Growth Index (tracked by DNL after costs, fees and expenses) leads to other benefits as well when compared to other international dividend indexes, including:

+Higher Growth Expectations: The average long-term earnings growth estimates are over 5% higher than those of the competing indexes
+Higher-Quality Factors: Three-year average ROE and ROA are much higher than those of other indexes
+Lower Leverage: The companies in the WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Growth Index employ less leverage to operate their businesses than constituents in the other indexes

Return on Equity (ROE): Measures a corporation’s profitability by revealing how much profit a company generates with the money shareholders have invested.

Return on assets (ROA): Firm profits (after accounting for all expenses) divided by the firm’s total assets. Higher numbers indicate greater profits relative to the level of assets utilized to generate them.

Leverage: Total assets divided by equity. Higher numbers indicate greater borrowing to finance asset purchases; leverage can tend to make positive performance more positive and negative performance more negative.

Long-Term Earnings Growth Expectations: Compilation of analyst estimates of the growth in operating earnings expected to occur over the next full business cycle, typically 3 to 5 years, sourced from Bloomberg.

Earnings Retention: Proportion of a firm's earnings that are not paid out to shareholders in the form of a dividend but rather reinvested back into the business. Higher numbers indicate a greater percentage of earnings are being reinvested.

DIVIDEND GROWTH IN EMERGING MARKETS

Emerging markets have been underperforming for the past few years, leading some investors to consider changing allocations. But, if we follow traditional investment wisdom, the time to buy is when prices are down. And, given that emerging markets are still expected to drive future global growth over the long term8, cutting allocations altogether may not make sense. Consider that:

+The economic growth potential of emerging market companies is driven largely by favorable demographic trends9
+EM equities10 may offer relative value when compared to U.S. equities11

The WisdomTree Emerging Markets Dividend Growth Index (tracked by DGRE after costs, fees and expenses) uses a forward-looking approach to help you capture the equity performance and dividend growth potential of the emerging markets.

WHY NOW

Dividend-paying equities are an attractive option for investors looking to generate income, pursue higher total return potential—and more. Consider the following:

  • Not only may dividend-paying equities provide current income, but historically dividend growth has tended to outpace inflation1
  • Dividend indexes with backward-looking growth screens may fail to capture growth opportunities2
  • Dividend indexes that screen for the fundamental metrics we believe to be associated with greater potential for future growth may help investors capitalize on dividend growth trends as they occur

  • WisdomTree's dividend growth family is designed to help you capitalize on dividend growth trends today—and tomorrow.

ACCESSING DIVIDEND LEADERS

Apple is now the second largest dividend payer in the United States.3 But popular dividend indexes such as the NASDAQ US Dividend Achievers Select Index won't be able to include Apple until as late as 2023. In fact, because of its strict historical growth requirements, this index currently excludes many of today’s 20 largest dividend payers4. A primary motivation for the creation of the methodology underlying the WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Growth Index, the Index which DGRW is designed to track, was an attempt to provide an alternative approach focusing on dividend growth—an approach that didn’t necessarily rely solely on a backward-looking screen. As a result, Apple and many other dividend leaders are already eligible for inclusion in the WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Growth Index, which DGRW5 is designed to track after costs, fees and expenses.

CAPTURING SMALL CAP DIVIDEND GROWTH

We believe small companies have big potential. Not only have they outperformed their larger counterparts over long periods6, but they have historically led the way out of recessions. Their ability to adapt and innovate helps them create the products, services and business methods we will come to rely on in the future. DGRS, the WisdomTree U.S. SmallCap Dividend Growth Fund, helps investors gain exposure to the small companies that are well positioned to grow their dividends the fastest. Consider that:

  • Small companies tend to outperform larger ones over long periods
  • Dividends have hit new record levels as investors search for income producing asset classes7
  • Most dividend-focused indexes are biased toward large-cap blue-chip companies, while few options are geared toward generating exposure only to small-cap dividend payers
  • Dividend indexes that screen for future growth prospects may help investors to capitalize on small-cap dividend growth trends as they occur
