DXJ Fund Description

The WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity ETF tracks an exporter-focused, dividend-weighted index of Japanese stocks. The fund is hedged for currency fluctuations between the US dollar and Japanese yen.

DXJ Factset Analytics Insight

DXJ has a specific investment thesis, with an Abenomics-targeted, dividend-focused portfolio. The fund is positioned to gain from increased economic activity in Japan due to the weakening of its currency. DXJ selects export-oriented, dividend-paying Japanese firms, weights them by dividends and then hedges its yen exposure. The fund wasn't always currency-hedged or export-oriented; at launch, it tracked a dividend-weighted index, adding a currency hedge in 2010, and shifting the portfolio toward exporters in 2012. DXJ's dividend-oriented selection and weighting produce one of the segment's highest yields and a tilt to large-caps.The fund’s fee isn't cheap, but it’s reasonable given the complexity of the portfolio. However, wobbly tracking stats point to real-world holdings costs that are often significantly higher than the fee. It’s worth pointing out that the fund has made capital gains distributions in the past—a tax hit for investors. Still, DXJ's is one of the most-liquid funds in the segment and is easy to trade for both small and large investors.
