Description
The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests in an international portfolio of common stocks and other equity securities of issuers located in countries of developed and emerging markets. It will engage in the active management of its portfolio by making investments in selected businesses which the portfolio managers believe may grow and enjoy sustainable competitive advantages in their markets. The fund will invest at least 85% of its net assets in common stocks and other equity securities of companies whose principal activities are in Europe, Australasia, and/or the Far East, which may include emerging markets.
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests predominantly in the stocks of companies located outside the United States and is expected to diversify its assets in countries across developed and emerging markets. In selecting stocks, the fund's advisors evaluate foreign markets around the world and choose large-, mid-, and small-capitalization companies considered to have above-average growth potential. The fund uses multiple investment advisors.
The investment seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the WisdomTree Global ex-U.S. Quality Dividend Growth Index. Under normal circumstances, at least 95% of the fund's total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) will be invested in the 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 consists of dividend-paying global ex-U.S. common stocks with growth characteristics. 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.

Similarity

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.
