The WisdomTree International Real Estate Fund invests in companies that may be classified as Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs). A PFIC is a foreign-based corporation that has one of the following attributes: 1. At least 75% of the corporation's gross income is considered "passive", or 2. At least 50% of the average assets held by such corporation during the taxable year produce passive income or held for the production of passive income. PFICs are common in the international real estate asset class. Investments in PFICs may result in greater distributions of ordinary income if there are any realized or unrealized gains in the PFIC holdings. Conversely, if there are any realized or unrealized losses in PFIC holdings, which had prior unrealized gains, the Fund’s ability to distribute ordinary income may be reduced.

There are risks associated with investing, including possible loss of principal. Foreign investing involves special risks, such as risk of loss from currency fluctuation or political or economic uncertainty. Investments in emerging, offshore or frontier markets such as the Middle East are generally less liquid and less efficient than investments in developed markets and are subject to additional risks, such as risks of adverse governmental regulation and intervention or political developments. Investments in real estate involve additional special risks, such as credit risk, interest rate fluctuations and the effect of varied economic conditions. Funds focusing their investments on certain sectors and/or smaller companies increase their vulnerability to any single economic or regulatory development. This may result in greater share price volatility. Please read the Fund's prospectus for specific details regarding the Fund's risk profile.
