WisdomTree International Hedged Equity Index

The WisdomTree International Hedged Equity Index is a fundamentally weighted Index that measures the performance of dividend-paying companies in the industrialized world, excluding Canada and the United States, that pay regular cash dividends and that meet other liquidity and capitalization requirements while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations of the foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar. The Index is designed to have higher returns than an equivalent non-currency hedged investment when the foreign currencies are weakening relative to the U.S. dollar. Conversely, the Index is designed to have lower returns than an equivalent unhedged investment when the foreign currencies are rising relative to the U.S. dollar. The Index is comprised of companies incorporated in 15 developed European countries, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Israel and Singapore. Companies are weighted in the Index based on annual cash dividends paid.

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.
