The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing principally in equity securities and equity-related investments of Frontier Market Issuers, which may be denominated in any currency, including the local currency of the issuer. A Frontier Market Issuer is an issuer that is located in a Frontier Market Country, or an issuer deriving at least 50% of its revenues or profits from goods produced or sold, investments made, or services performed in one or more Frontier Market Countries or that has at least 50% of its assets in one or more Frontier Market Countries.
The investment seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the WisdomTree Emerging Markets SmallCap Dividend Index. Under normal circumstances, at least 95% of the fund's total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) will be invested in component securities of the index and investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of such component securities. The index is a fundamentally weighted index that is comprised of small cap common stocks selected from the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Dividend Index. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to correspond, before fees and expenses, to the price and yield performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets Equal Country Weighted Index (the "underlying index"). The fund invests primarily in equity securities to meet its investment objective of corresponding to the underlying index as closely as possible, before fees and expenses. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure equity market performance of certain markets deemed to be emerging markets. The fund is non-diversified.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
