WisdomTree Japan Hedged Quality Dividend Growth Index

The WisdomTree Japan Hedged 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 International Equity Index while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations between the Yen and the U.S. dollar. The Index is comprised of 300 companies from the eligible universe based on their combined ranking of growth and quality factors. 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. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on February 28, 2014 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.

Prior to August 31, 2015, the WisdomTree Japan Hedged Quality Dividend Growth Index was named the WisdomTree Japan Hedged Dividend Growth Index.

Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
