DLS - Wisdomtree International Smallcap Fund

Wisdomtree International Smallcap Fund logoThe WisdomTree International SmallCap Fund (DLS) is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that seeks to track the investment results of small-capitalization companies in developed markets outside of the United States. The fund uses a passive management approach and employs a fundamentally weighted indexing strategy, meaning that it weights the companies in the index by fundamental factors such as revenue, earnings, and dividends, rather than market capitalization.

DLS invests in small-cap companies from developed countries, excluding the United States and Canada. This focus on small-cap stocks offers investors exposure to companies that may have greater growth potential than larger, more established companies. However, small-cap stocks are often more volatile than larger stocks, and may carry higher levels of risk.

The fund's portfolio is well-diversified across countries and sectors, with no single holding accounting for more than 1% of the portfolio. As of September 30, 2021, the fund held over 800 stocks, with the largest country exposures in Japan, the United Kingdom, and France. The fund's expense ratio is 0.58%, which is relatively low for an international small-cap ETF.

Overall, DLS can be a good option for investors seeking exposure to small-cap companies outside of the United States, but investors should be aware of the potential risks associated with small-cap investing and the inherent risks of international investing.
