WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Hedged Dividend Index

The WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Hedged Dividend Index measures the performance of dividend-paying companies in the developed and emerging markets outside of the United States while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations of foreign currency movements relative to the U.S. dollar. In this sense, the Index "hedges" against fluctuations in the relative value of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar. The Index is designed to have higher returns than an equivalent non-currency hedged investment when the foreign currency is weakening relative to the U.S. dollar. Conversely, the Index is designed to have lower returns than an equivalent unhedged investment when the base currency is rising relative to the U.S. dollar. The Index is dividend weighted with country weights equal to the float-adjusted market capitalization weight of the universe of the selected top 1000 stocks. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on March 31, 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.

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.
