Performance i
The above chart presents information about the difference between the daily market price for shares of the Fund and the Fund's net asset value. The market price is determined using the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 p.m. eastern time for most Funds). The vertical axis of the chart shows the premium or discount expressed as a percentage of mid-point.

The chart shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the Wisdom Tree ETF or returns on investment in the Wisdom Tree ETF. The Growth of Hypothetical $10,000 chart reflects a hypothetical $10,000 investment and assumes reinvestment of distributions and capital gains. Fund expenses, including management fees and other expenses, were deducted. As a result of the risks and limitations inherent in hypothetical performance data, hypothetical results may differ from actual performance
