Participating in a European recovery typically means participating at the local level. Small companies can provide greater exposure to Europe’s local recovery, as they receive more of their revenues from within Europe. Comparing the top 10 holdings for the WisdomTree Europe SmallCap Dividend Index (WTESC)—the Index DFE is designed to track—to its large-cap counterparts provides a stark contrast. WTESC's delivered nearly 50% more revenue from Europe!

Among the first signs of a recovering economy are increases in consumption and capital spending. Cyclical sectors have a greater potential to benefit from these developments than defensive sectors. WTESC, the index DFE is designed to track, has over 83% exposure to economic cyclical sectors, far more than any of its counterparts.
