Important Information about Index Performance

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. WisdomTree Investments, its affiliates and their independent providers are not liable for any informational errors, incompleteness, or delays, or for any actions taken in reliance on information contained herein.
