Large technology companies are often today's economic leaders - creating the products and services that quickly become necessities. It might surprise you to learn that these companies have also been leading the way in dividend growth.1 And if your dividend fund uses a backward-looking growth screen, you probably won't be able to take advantage of these dividend growth trends for 5, 10 or even 20 years. DGRW, the WisdomTree U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Fund, is a forward-looking exchange-traded Fund (ETF) that seeks to help you capture today's dividend growth trends.

WHAT DGRW IS MADE OF

Traditionally, dividends are known for coming from €œdefensive sectors € like Consumer Staples, Health Care, Utilities and Telecommunications Services. And while Information Technology is driving the bulk of dividend growth today, it tends to be underweight in many dividend growth strategies12. We believe that DGRW's forward-looking strategy may provide investors with the potential to capitalize on the industries and companies growing their dividends the fastest today - and tomorrow.

CAPTURING DIVIDEND GROWTH

DGRW may help investors capture more dividend growth than backward-looking dividend ETFs. A diversified basket of dividend growers, DGRW can play many roles within a portfolio.

A complement to high dividend yield ETFs

DGRW may help investors generate additional dividend income.

Income with growth potential

DGRW seeks to provide investors not only with current income, but also a potentially growing income stream.

A replacement to backward-looking ETFs or mutual funds

As a forward-looking ETF, DGRW may help investors to better capitalize on dividend growth trends today - and tomorrow.

WHY DIVIDENDS?

Dividend-paying equities are an attractive option for investors looking to generate income, pursue higher total return potential and more. Consider that:

  • Not only may dividend-paying equities provide current income, but historically, dividend growth has tended to outpace inflation2
  • Dividends have hit new record levels, but the key drivers of dividend growth in the U.S. are changing3
  • Technology firms have been the greatest contributors to dividend growth over the past five years - accounting for more than a 33% increase in dividends from November 30, 2007, to November 30, 20144
  • Dividend indexes with backward-looking growth screens5 may fail to capture growth opportunities6
  • Dividend indexes that screen for fundamental metrics that we believe to be associated with greater potential for future growth may help investors to capitalize on dividend growth trends as they occur

DGRW seeks to help you capitalize on dividend growth trends today - and tomorrow.

ACCESSING DIVIDEND LEADERS

Apple is now the second largest dividend payer in the United States.7 But indexes like the NASDAQ U.S. Dividend Achievers Select Index won't be able to include it until 2023. In fact, because of its strict historical growth requirements, this index currently excludes many of today's 20 largest dividend payers8. Apple and many other dividend leaders, however, are already eligible for inclusion in DGRW9.

*Year of potential eligibility: Constituents of DVG must demonstrate 10 consecutive years of dividend increases to be eligible for inclusion. Year indicates when an excluded stock could meet that criterion. €œCurrent Member € indicates stocks that are currently included in DVG.

DGRW LOOKS TO THE FUTURE

The WisdomTree U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Index, which DGRW is designed to track, uses a strict, rules-based process for selecting and weighting stocks.

10 Return on Assets (ROA): Firm profits (after accounting for all expenses) divided by the firm's total assets. Higher numbers indicate greater profits relative to the level of assets utilized to generate them.
11 Return on equity (ROE): Firm profits (after accounting for all expenses) divided by the firm's equity. Higher numbers indicate greater profits relative to the level of equity.
