The WisdomTree Europe Hedged SmallCap Equity ETF (EUSC) has seen strong inflows as a result of a growing view that the Euro will continue to weaken until it hits parity with the U.S. dollar, said Jeremy Schwartz, Director of Research at WisdomTree Investments. Aside from helping large exporters, Schwartz added that the weak Euro will also help smaller European companies because it will lift overall economic growth and tourism. Similarly, Schwartz sees further weakening in the Japanese Yen boosting the WisdomTree Japan Hedged SmallCap Equity ETF (DXJS) as tourism and consumer spending increase.
