WisdomTree Germany Hedged Equity Index

Add this index to My WisdomTree Add this index to My WisdomTree
The WisdomTree Germany Hedged Equity Index is designed to provide exposure to Germany equity markets while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations of the Euro movements relative to the U.S. dollar. In this sense, the Index "hedges" against fluctuations in the relative value of the Euro against the U.S. dollar. The Index is designed to have higher returns than an equivalent non-currency hedged investment when the Euro is weakening relative to the U.S. dollar. Conversely, the Index is designed to have lower returns than an equivalent unhedged investment when the Euro is rising relative to the U.S. dollar. The Index consists of dividend-paying companies incorporated in Germany and traded on German Stock Exchanges that derive less than 80% of their revenue from sources in Germany. By excluding companies that derive 80% or more of their revenue from Germany, the Index is tilted towards companies with a more significant global revenue base. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on April 30, 2013 and is calculated in US dollars.

Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
