The WisdomTree International Hedged Equity Fund (NYSEArca: HEDJ) will be subjected to changes by the end of this month, as the firm seeks to limit exposure to damage dealt by a faltering euro and a troubled eurozone, according to an article on Benzinga.

HEDJ will still carry exposure to dividend-paying European companies; however, the fund will exclusively track companies that receive over half of their revenue from outside the eurozone, according to Benzinga.

Currently, HEDJ provides access to 13 currencies and 22 countries within the U.K.; however, after it is restructured, the fund will focus on hedging the euro against the dollar, the article said.
