The Fund seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses of the WisdomTree Europe SmallCap Dividend Index (the “Index”). The Index is a fundamentally weighted index and is comprised of the small-capitalisation segment of the dividend paying common stocks selected from the WisdomTree International Equity Index (the “Parent Index”). To be included in the Index, securities must meet minimum market capitalisation and liquidity requirements, paid dividends over the prior annual cycle and be listed on a stock exchange in one of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland or the United Kingdom. The Index consists of shares in companies that compose the bottom of the Parent Index by market capitalisation after the 300 largest companies in the Parent Index are removed. Such securities are then weighted in the Index based on dividends paid over the prior annual cycle. Companies that pay more total dollar amount of dividends are more heavily weighted. The Index is "reconstituted" annually on the basis of the above eligibility and weighting methodology. At such time, the maximum weight of any one sector and any one country in the Index is capped. In order to achieve its objective, the Fund will employ a "passive management" (or indexing) investment approach and will invest in a portfolio of equity securities that so far as possible and practicable consists of a representative sample of the component securities of the Index. As it may be difficult, expensive or otherwise inefficient to purchase all the securities in the Index, the Fund may also hold shares or other securities which produce a similar investment return to securities in the Index or may invest in collective investment schemes. The Fund may enter into repurchase/reverse repurchase agreements and stock lending arrangements solely for the purposes of efficient portfolio management, subject to the conditions and within the limits set out in the prospectus for WisdomTree Issuer ICAV (the “Prospectus”). Shares of the Fund (“Shares”) are listed on one or more stock exchanges. Typically, only Authorised Participants (i.e. brokers) can purchase Shares from or sell Shares back to the Fund. Other investors can purchase and sell Shares on exchange on each day the relevant stock exchange is open. Distribution policy: Income received by the Fund’s investments will normally be distributed Semi-annually in respect of the Shares of this class. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Currency: The base currency of the Fund is Euro. The currency of denomination of this share class is Euro.
