WisdomTree Equity Income Fund (DHS) surpasses USD1bn in assets


Exchange traded fund ETF and exchange traded product (ETP) sponsor WisdomTree’s Equity Income Fund (DHS) has surpassed USD1 billion in assets. 

DHS is designed to track the WisdomTree Equity Income Index, a dividend-weighted index that measures the performance of the high dividend yielding segment of the US equity market.

Currently, a critical driver of dividend-paying stocks in the US is the behaviour of US Treasury yields – particularly on the 10-Year Treasury note. From 31 December, 2013 to 31 October, 2014, this yield has declined from slightly over 3.00% to slightly over 2.33%.

Luciano Siracusano, WisdomTree Chief Investment Strategist, says: “Historically, DHS has tended to be strongly positioned for environments supportive of higher-yielding dividend payers, since it selects for this particular attribute from a broad universe of U.S. dividend-paying stocks. And following a year of strong US equity market momentum in 2013, we’ve seen our U.S. dividend indexes outpace their market capitalisation-weighted benchmarks in nearly every size segment of the market in 2014, as dividend-paying stocks delivered strong performance.”
