The WisdomTree International Hedged Quality Dividend Growth Index is designed to provide exposure to the developed market companies while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations between the value of foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar. In this sense, the Index "hedges" against fluctuations in the relative value of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar. The Index is comprised of the top 300 companies from the WisdomTree DEFA Index with the best combined rank of growth and quality factors. The growth factor ranking is based on long-term earnings growth expectations, while the quality factor ranking is based on three year historical averages for return on equity and return on assets. Companies are weighted in the Index based on annual cash dividends paid. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on November 29, 2013.
Prior to August 31, 2015, the WisdomTree International Hedged Quality Dividend Growth Index was named the WisdomTree International Hedged Dividend Growth Index.
