WisdomTree U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Index Variably CAD-Hedged

The WisdomTree U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Index Variably CAD-Hedged is a fundamentally weighted index designed to provide exposure to dividend-paying U.S. companies with growth characteristics, while at the same time variably hedging currency exposure to fluctuations between the value of the U.S. dollar and the Canadian dollar. The primary starting screening universe for the Index is the constituents of the WisdomTree Dividend Index with market capitalization of at least $2 billion. The Index is comprised of the 300 companies in the WisdomTree Dividend Index with the best combined rank 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. The Index is dividend weighted annually to reflect the proportionate share of the aggregate cash dividends each component company is projected to pay in the coming year, based on the most recently declared dividend per share. The Index variably hedges currency fluctuations in the relative value of the U.S. dollar against the Canadian dollar, which may range from 0% to 100%, and will be based on certain quantitative signals (namely, interest rate differentials, momentum and value).
