WisdomTree Global Quality Dividend Growth Index

The WisdomTree Global Quality Dividend Growth Index is a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of dividend-paying common stocks with growth characteristics selected from the WisdomTree Global Dividend Index. The Index is comprised of 300 securities with the best combined rank of growth and quality factors from each region, i.e. the U.S., developed and emerging markets. 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. Regional weights are set according to the respective float-adjusted market capitalization weights of the universe of dividend and non-dividend payers of the regional allocations to the U.S., developed and emerging markets. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on July 28, 2015 and is calculated in US dollars and is updated to reflect market prices and exchange rates. Closing or last-sale prices are used when non-U.S. markets are closed.
