WisdomTree Emerging Markets SmallCap Dividend Index

The Index is governed by a published, rules-based methodology and is designed to measure the performance of small cap dividend paying emerging markets stocks.The Index is a fundamentally weighted Index and is comprised of primarily small cap common stocks selected from the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Dividend Index. Companies included in the Index fall within the bottom 10% of total market capitalisation of the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Dividend Index as of the annual Index screening date.

Eligibility requirements for the Index include: (i) payment of at least $5 million in cash dividends on common shares in the annual cycle prior to the annual Index screening date; (ii) market capitalisation of at least $200 million as of the Index screening date; (iii) average daily dollar volume of at least $200,000 for each of the six months preceding the Index screening date; (iv) incorporation within one of 17 emerging market nations (Brazil, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Korea,Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey); (v) a calculated volume factor (the average daily dollar volume for three months preceding the Index screening date divided by the weight of the security in the Index) that is greater than $200 million; and(vi) trading of at least 250,000 shares per month for each of the six months preceding the Index screening date. Securities are weighted in the Index based on dividends paid over the prior annual cycle.Companies that pay more total dollar amount of dividends are more heavily weighted.The maximum weight of any one sector and any one country in the Index, at the time of the Index’s annualscreening date, is capped at 25%, subject to the following volume factor. In the event that a company has a calculated volume factor that is less than $400 million as of the annual Index screening date, (i) the company’s weight in the Index will be reduced such that its weight equals its weight prior to the adjustment multiplied by a fraction of its calculated volume factor divided by $400 million, and (ii) the reduction in the company’s Index weight may cause a sector’s and/or country’s weight to rise above 25%. In response to market conditions, sector and country weights may fluctuate above 25% between annual Index screening dates. While the Index is primarily designed to include small cap companies, it may also include large capitalisation and mid-capitalisation from time to time. The Fund may invest directly in securities listed or traded on the Regulated Markets of Russia in accordance with the weighting attributed to such securities in the Index. Investment in Russian listed or traded securities shall be limited to those securities whichare listed or traded on the Moscow Exchange MICEX-RTS.The Index is "reconstituted" on an annual basis.

During the annual reconstitution, securities are screened to determine whether they comply with WisdomTree Investment, Inc.'s (“WisdomTree”) proprietary Index methodology and are eligible to be included in the Index on the basis of the requirements outlined above, except if a company currently in the Index is no longer ranked in the bottom 10% of total market capitalisation of the Index at the time of the annual Index screening date but remains ranked within the bottom 13% of total market capitalisation of the Index, the company will remain in the Index. New securities are added to the Index only during the "annual reconstitution." The annual reconstitution takes place in October each year using the latest available closing prices on the last trading day in September.This date is the "Index measurement date". Based on this screening, securities that meet Index requirements are added to the Index and securities that do not meet such requirements are dropped from the Index. A "preliminary Index" is made publicly available based on this information by the Wednesdayin the second week of October. The "Weighting Date" is the date when the final weights of each component security of the Index are established. The Weighting Date is the second Friday of October andthe final weights are established after close of business on that day. The final Index constituents and their respective weightings are made publicly available after close of business on the second Friday of October and go into effect before the opening of trading on the Monday following the third Friday of October.

In order to minimise any potential for conflicts caused by the fact that WisdomTree and its affiliates act as Index Provider and Promoter of the Company, WisdomTree has retained an unaffiliated third party to calculate the Index (the “Calculation Agent”). The Calculation Agent, using the applicable rules-based methodology, will calculate, maintain and disseminate the Index on a daily basis. WisdomTree will monitor the results produced by the Calculation Agent to help ensure that the Index is being calculated in accordance with the applicable rules-based methodology. In addition, WisdomTree has established policies and procedures designed to prevent non-public information about pending changes to the Indices from being used or disseminated in an improper manner.
