WisdomTree to Launch Emerging Markets Small-Cap ETF

WisdomTree Investments, Inc. has announced that the WisdomTree Trust will launch a new small-cap dividend-weighted exchange-traded fund (ETF) on October 30 under the ticker symbol DGS.
The ETF is designed to track the WisdomTree Emerging Markets SmallCap Dividend Index and will be the first ETF to offer pure international exposure to primarily small-cap stocks selected from 19 emerging market nations, including countries in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
The ETF offers investors exposure to robust and growing markets through a fundamentally weighted indexing strategy that seeks to reduce the potential risk to which WisdomTree believes market capitalization-weighted indexes are prone.
DGS will trade on the NYSE Arca and will have an expense ratio of 0.63%.
“We believe this Emerging Markets ETF offers investors access to fast-growing companies in attractive new markets with the added comfort that comes from WisdomTree’s dividend-focused strategy,’ said Bruce Lavine, President & COO of WisdomTree, in a company announcement.
