WisdomTree lists its first Ucits global dividend ETF in London

WisdomTree, an exchange-traded fund (ETF) provider, has launched two funds that chase dividends from US and global companies.

The firm is using its ‘Quality Dividend Growth’ methodology in support of the WisdomTree US Quality Dividend Growth Ucits ETF and the WisdomTree Global Quality Dividend Growth Ucits ETF, which are both listed on the London Stock Exchange.

The global dividend fund is WisdomTree’s first global equity product to be launched on its Ucits platform.

The methodology puts an emphasis on the “shifting trends in dividends” and focuses on fundamental metrics that WisdomTree thinks are associated with future dividend growth potential.

Viktor Nossek, director of research at WisdomTree Europe, said investors are keen to explore more developed methodologies to gain access to dividend-related strategies.

“In building these new proprietary strategies, we employ the same ’Buffett factors’ of return on equity and return on assets as a driving force for stock selection in our Quality Dividend Growth strategies, tilting towards quality companies with low debt and high return on equity.”
