WisdomTree AT1 CoCo Bond UCITS ETF - GBP Hedged
The Fund seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses of iBoxx Contingent Convertible Liquid Developed Europe AT1 Index GBP Hedged (the “Index”). Learn more about the Index that COGO is designed to track.
- Diversified exposure to AT1 CoCos
- The Fund Invests in CoCos which are rated, backed by developed Europe financial institutions and screened for liquidity
- Offers a unique yield, return and risk profile
- Physically replicated, and UCITS compliant
- CoCos can be converted into equity of the issuing financial institution or have their principal written down. This may result in your investment losing some or all of the original investment amount
- The behaviour of the relatively new CoCo bond market has not been tested in a systemic financial crisis, thus the price and liquidity of CoCos may degrade under such circumstances. Past performance is therefore not a suitable indicator of future performance
- Coupon payments on some CoCos are entirely discretionary and can be cancelled. As a result of this uncertainty around coupon payments, CoCo products may be more volatile, and their price may rapidly decline in the event that coupon payments are suspended. Some CoCos may be callable bonds, which means that such callable bonds can be redeemed by the issuer prior to the bond's maturity. This may result in the investor not receiving the invested capital back on the specified call date or at any date at all. Some CoCos are issued as perpetual instruments and only callable at predetermined levels upon approval of the competent regulatory authority. It cannot be assumed that these perpetual CoCos will be called on a call date. CoCos are a form of permanent capital. The investor may not receive return of principal as expected on call date or indeed at any date
- This list does not cover all risks. Further risks are disclosed in the KIID and Prospectus & Communications Surveillance
The price of any Shares or the value of an investment in ETPs may go up or down and an investor may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. This material is not intended to be relied upon as a forecast, research or investment advice, and is not a recommendation, offer or solicitation to buy or sell any financial instrument or product or to adopt any investment strategy.

Currency Hedging and Counterparty Risk Management
Some share classes of this Fund offer currency hedged exposure. These share classes obtain their currency hedged exposure by entering into foreign exchange (FX) forward contracts with one or more counterparties (the “Counterparty”).
Counterparty risk resulting from the Fund’s currency hedging activities is managed through the daily delivery of collateral by the Counterparty to the Fund.
The value of the collateral required from the Counterparty is based on the Fund’s counterparty exposure, which is marked-to-market daily. Collateral may be exchanged daily [subject to a minimum transfer amount of USD 50,000.
The assets posted as collateral by the Counterparty is of a high quality and may only include cash (US Dollars only) or government bonds of US, UK, France or Germany, with a minimum rating of AA-/Aa3 (“eligible collateral assets”).
When valuing bonds posted as collateral, a haircut is applied to each bond's value based on the issuing country and the bond's maturity, as specified in the following table. Applying a haircut to the value of eligible collateral typically results in the collateral value exceeding the counterparty exposure and in any exposure being “over-collateralised”.
Haircuts / Over-Collateralisation Applied to Collateral Securities
The up-to-date exact collateral composition delivered by the Fund’s counterparties is available to view on our website.
