Three Currency Exposures Dominate the MSCI EAFE Index: Euro, Yen, and Pound Why Hedge Currency? Inverse correlations of equity and currency: Positive equity returns can coincide with currency weakness.

Currency Exposure in MSCI EAFE Index (as of 3/31/2014) Australian dollar, 8.1%

Volatility Reduction: As U.S. investors buy foreign equities, the volatility of their returns is affected by both the equity price volatility as well as that of the currency.

Equity Catalyst: Money in motion on BOJ policies to stimulate inflation expectations and markets BOJ Deputy Governor Iwata’s words: … market participants with rising inflation expectations will shift part of their portfolios from cash, deposits, and bonds including JGBs to equities (including equity trust funds), real estate and homes (including real estate investment trusts such as J-REITs) or, alternatively, foreign-denominated assets for which returns are higher than those derived from yen-denominated assets. As a result of this, expectations would be for stock prices to rise, the yen to depreciate, and foreign currencies to appreciate.1

WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Suite Five key themes in the Japan hedged equity family of indexes: Japan Hedged Equity: Japanese Exporters have the potential to be some of the primary beneficiaries of a weak yen. Japan Small Caps Hedged Equity: Potential to complement large cap exporters with more sensitivity to the local economy. Reflation: Stimulating Domestic demand and Reflation are key themes of Abenomics – manifesting in interest in Japanese financial stocks and real estate. Abe’s Growth Strategies: Health Care and Technology are in focus given their role in Abenomics’ third arrow growth strategy. Yen Sensitivity: Capital goods companies are largely exporters and sensitive to the yen’s moves versus foreign currencies. Technology stocks can also be sensitive to the yen’s movements.

Mechanics of the Currency Hedge The currency hedge is implemented with short positions in 1-month forward contracts versus the U.S. dollar •

Currency non-deliverable forward contracts (NDFs) rebalanced monthly-- notional principle equals assets in funds

Intra-month adjustments of currency hedge: •

Creation/redemption offers natural time to adjust currency hedge positions

Cost of Hedging currencies are a function of two primary drivers: • •

Difference in 1-month interest rates between the United States and Country of potential hedged currency (the current differential is minimal). Liquidity (the bid/ask spread) of the forwards. JPY/USD, EUR/USD and GBP/USD are three of the most liquid markets for NDF contracts.

Taxation of forward contracts • • •

If gains arise from the NDF hedge, they are taxed as 40% short-term and 60% long-term capital gains If losses arise, they can be carried forward in accordance with Internal Revenue Service rules to potentially offset future gains. Losses from the currency hedge can impede distributable dividends

Conclusion We believe that currency hedging in the developed international equity space will be one of the most important portfolio considerations over the next three to five years • •

Hedging the euro, yen, pound or the Swiss franc is presently inexpensive based on differences across short-term interest rates Developed international currency exposure may not be an effective hedge against U.S. inflation, judging by history

Macroeconomic policies—such as those being utilized currently within Japan and those being discussed in Europe—could lead to a potentially weaker euro or yen relative to the U.S. dollar The U.S. Federal Reserve may be the first to stop its practices of Quantitative Easing, relative to other Developed Market Central Banks, leading to the potential for a stronger U.S. dollar (and weaker foreign currencies) Potential Broad International Solution: The WisdomTree International Hedged Dividend Growth Fund (IHDG) Potential Japan Solutions: The WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund (DXJ), WisdomTree Japan Hedged SmallCap Equity Fund (DXJS), WisdomTree Japan Hedged Financials Fund (DXJF), WisdomTree Japan Hedged Real Estate Fund (DXJR), WisdomTree Japan Hedged Capital Goods Fund (DXJC), WisdomTree Japan Hedged Tech, Media and Telecom Fund (DXJT), WisdomTree Japan Hedged Health Care Fund (DXJH)* Potential Europe Solution: The WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity Fund (HEDJ)
