WisdomTree offered another exchange traded fund (ETF) this week for investors to become further diversified with the WisdomTree Emerging Market Small-Cap Dividend Fund (DGS), reports Roger Nusbaum for the Street. It’s the first emerging-market small-cap ETF. Nusbaum says that had this ETF been around in the late ’90s, it would have outperformed the large-cap MSCI Emerging Markets index since 1999!
The fund is most heavily weighted in Taiwan, with 22.97%. It is heavily tilted toward Asia — 64% of the fund is devoted to the region. Africa and the Middle East make up 23.24%, Latin America is 7.88% and 4.92% is in Eastern Europe.
