The WisdomTree Emerging Markets Consumer Growth Index is a fundamentally weighted index that consists of stocks that best exemplify growth trends in emerging market consumers and their local economies. The Index is comprised of 250 companies from the eligible universe (150 companies from the Consumer Sectors and 100 from the non-Consumer sectors) based on their combined ranking of growth, quality, and valuation factors. The growth factor ranking is based on long-term earnings growth expectations, the quality factor ranking is based on three year historical averages for return on equity and return on assets, and the valuation factor is based on the earnings yield. Companies are weighted in the Index based on their annual net income. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on August 8, 2013 and is calculated in US dollars and is updated to reflect market prices and exchange rates. Closing or last-sale prices are used when non-U.S. markets are closed.
