WisdomTree Global Hedged High Dividend Index

The WisdomTree Global Hedged 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 and is designed to remove from index performance the impact of changes to the value of 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. At the index measurement date, companies with market capitalizations of at least $2 billion are ranked by dividend yield and those companies in the top 30% by dividend yield are selected for inclusion in the Global High Dividend Index. Companies are weighted in the index based on annual cash dividends paid. Closing or last-sale prices are used when non-U.S. markets are closed.
