“Investors often take on too much currency risk when they invest overseas. For those who do not want to make the timing decision themselves, DHDG will help dynamically adjust currency-hedge ratios based on a data-driven, transparent process. Adopting a dynamic approach with WisdomTree moves investors away from subjective calls and into a disciplined, factor-based approach to currency hedging. We believe our factors – carry, value and momentum – have potential to outperform both hedged and unhedged strategies over time by rotating currency hedges with their cycles,” Jeremy Schwartz, WisdomTree Director of Research, said in a press release.
