WisdomTree has launched tow new smart beta exchange traded funds (ETFs) on Xetra providing investors to participate in the performance of stock corporations with the best combined rank of growth and quality factors.
Companies must have market capitalisation of at least USD 2 billion and meet high growth and quality factors to be included in the benchmark index. The companies in the index are ranked using the best combination of growth and quality factors. The growth and quality factors are long-term estimated earnings growth, average return on equity, and average return on assets of the past three years. The companies are then weighted according to the amount of the dividends they pay out.
The WisdomTree US Quality Dividend Growth UCITS ETF USD – Acc enables investment in 300 dividend-paying US companies. On the other hand investors can opt for a globally diversified approach with the WisdomTree Global Quality Dividend Growth UCITS ETF USD – Acc, which comprises 600 dividend-paying companies from developed countries.
The product offering in Deutsche Börse's XTF segment currently comprises a total of 1,037 exchange traded funds. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around EUR15 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
