WisdomTree Global Hedged SmallCap Dividend Index

The WisdomTree Global Hedged SmallCap Dividend Index is a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of 1000 largest small capitalization companies that rank within the bottom 5% of the WisdomTree Global Dividend Index by market capitalization and is designed to remove from index performance the impact of changes to the value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar. 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.

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.
