WisdomTree Korea Hedged Equity Index

Add this index to My WisdomTree Add this index to My WisdomTree
The WisdomTree Korea Hedged Equity Index is designed to provide exposure to Korean equity markets while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations of the Korean Won movements relative to the U.S. dollar. In this sense, the Index “hedges” against fluctuations in the relative value of the Korean Won against the U.S. dollar. The Index is designed to have higher returns than an equivalent non-currency hedged investment when the Korean Won is weakening relative to the U.S. dollar. Conversely, the Index is designed to have lower returns than an equivalent unhedged investment when the Korean Won is rising relative to the U.S. dollar. The Index consists of profitable companies incorporated in Korea and traded on the Korean Stock exchange that derive less than 80% of their revenue from sources in Korea. By excluding companies that derive 80% or more of their revenue from Korea, the Index is tilted towards companies with a more significant global revenue base. The WisdomTree Korea Hedged Equity Index was established with a base value of 200 on April 30, 2013 and is calculated in US dollars.

Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
