WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income Fund (DEM) Surpasses $5 Billion In Assets

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree (Nasdaq:WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") sponsor and asset manager, today announced the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income Fund (DEM) recently surpassed $5 billion in assets. DEM is designed to track the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income Index (WTEMHY), a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of high dividend yielding stocks in emerging markets.

Luciano Siracusano, WisdomTree Chief Investment Strategist, commented, "As investors evaluate their core emerging markets equity exposure, many are becoming aware of DEM as a unique approach with an enviable 5-year track record. Both the FTSE Emerging Markets Index and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index delivered negative returns over the past five-years. 1 DEM, on the other hand, has averaged a positive 5.26% on an annualized basis over the same time frame. I believe this represents strong real-time evidence how dividend weighted equity indexes can be used to add value within key asset classes." View standardized performance here.

Mr. Siracusano added, "By weighting equity markets by income and rebalancing annually back to what we believe are excellent indicators of relative value, WisdomTree's fundamentally weighted approach to indexing is building an impressive real-time track record in the U.S., developed and emerging markets."

There are risks associated with investing, including possible loss of principal. Foreign investing involves special risks, such as risk of loss from currency fluctuation or political or economic uncertainty. Funds focusing on a single sector generally experience greater price volatility. Investments in emerging, offshore or frontier markets are generally less liquid and less efficient than investments in developed markets and are subject to additional risks, such as risks of adverse governmental regulation, intervention and political developments. Due to the investment strategy of this Fund it may make higher capital gain distributions than other ETFs. Please read the Fund's prospectus for specific details regarding the Fund's risk profile.
