Proposed conversion of WisdomTree Issuer PLC to an ICAV and transition to the ICSD settlement model


Today sub-funds (the Funds) of WisdomTree Issuer PLC (the Issuer) settles trades in all shares using the central securities depositaries (CSD) settlement model. In the UK, settlement is through the local CSD, Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited (the CREST System). The Funds are listed on multiple stock exchanges and, settlement occurs on multiple local CSDs. This has been the standard operating model for almost all of the funds that are domiciled in Ireland.

From 29 March 2021 the Issuer will lose the ability to use the CREST System as an issuing CSD. In order to continue to issue shares, it is proposed to transfer the settlement of trading in the shares to the International Central Securities Depositary (ICSD) structure (the ICSD Settlement Model) in August 2020.

In order to facilitate a streamlined transition to ICSD for the Issuer, it is also proposed that the Issuer convert from a public limited company to an Irish collective assetmanagement vehicle (ICAV) in May 2020 and become ‘WisdomTree Issuer ICAV’. The ICAV structure is specific to investment funds and allows for a smoother and less time consuming transition to ICSD than the scheme for a plc.

Changes to WisdomTree US Equity Income UCITS ETF


From 20th December 2019, there will be an amendment to the methodology for WisdomTree US Equity Income Index, which this fund tracks.

The methodology will incorporate a new screening and weighting adjustment based on a composite risk score.

Stocks that would initially be eligible based on the dividend yield screen will be removed if they fall within the bottom quintile (20%) of the universe based on the composite risk score.

Eligible companies that pass both screens will then be weighted by their adjusted dividend stream, i.e., companies projected to pay more dividends and have higher composite risk scores will be more heavily weighted.
