DLSWisdomTree International SmallCap Dividend Fund
DLS Fund Description
DLS tracks a dividend-weighted index of small-cap companies located in developed countries outside of the US and Canada.
DLS Factset Analytics Insight
DLS pursues an international portfolio of dividend-paying small-caps, weighting them by the cash amount paid. Unsurprisingly, its dividend-based screening and weighting schemes tilt its portfolio away from the neutral WisdomTree International Equity Index — the dividend-paying universe of companies in the industrialized world excluding US and Canada. Stocks comprising the bottom 25% of the WisdomTree International Equity Index are selected for inclusion. Stocks that pay the greatest amount of dividends paid over the prior annual cycle are overweighed. The Underlying Index is rebalanced annually and provides for country and sector diversification by capping them at 25%.

WisdomTree International SmallCap Dividend Fund has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 5.86 out of 10.

These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
