The WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Index is a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of dividend paying stocks with growth characteristics in the developed and emerging markets outside of the United States. The primary starting screening universe for this index is the constituents of the WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Dividend Index with market capitalization of at least $2 billion. The Index is comprised of the 300 companies in this universe that have 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.
Prior to June 17, 2011, the WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Dividend Growth Index was named the WisdomTree World ex-U.S. Growth Index.

Index performance does not represent actual fund or portfolio performance. A fund or portfolio may differ significantly from the securities included in the Index. Index performance assumes reinvestment of dividends, but does not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or other expenses that would be incurred by a portfolio or fund, or brokerage commissions on transactions in Fund shares. Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
