WisdomTree Japan Hedged Health Care Index

The WisdomTree Japan Hedged Health Care Index is designed to provide exposure to Japanese Health Care companies while at the same time neutralizing exposure to fluctuations between the Yen and the U.S. dollar. In this sense, the Index "hedges" against fluctuations in the relative value of the Yen against the U.S. dollar. The Index is a float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is comprised of the following sub-industries: biotechnology, drug retail, health care equipment and supplies, health care providers and services, health care technology, life sciences tools and services, and pharmaceuticals. “Float-adjusted” means that the share amounts used in calculating the Index reflect only shares available to investors. The Index was established with a base value of 200 on November 29, 2013.

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.
