WisdomTree Global High Dividend Index
The WisdomTree Global High Dividend Index is a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of high dividend-yielding companies selected from the WisdomTree Global Dividend Index, which measures the performance of dividend-paying companies in the U.S., developed and emerging markets. At the index measurement date, companies with market capitalizations of at least $2 billion that rank in the top 30% by dividend yield from each region are selected for inclusion in the Index. 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, established with a base value of 200 on November 30, 2007, is calculated in U.S. dollars and is updated daily to reflect market prices and exchange rates. Closing or last-sale prices are used when non-U.S. markets are closed.
Prior to August 31, 2015, the WisdomTree Global High Dividend Index was named the WisdomTree Global Equity Income Index.

This chart illustrates how hypothetical investment of $10,000 might have grown. The calculations assume reinvestment of dividend and do not reflect transaction and other costs.
Results are not indicative of future 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.
