Luciano Siracusano, Chief Investment Strategist, WisdomTree speaks with Julie Cooling, Founder & CEO, RIA Channel about their dividend-weighted ETFs, 2017 Market Outlook and new fixed income ETF, AGGY. With assets under management exceeding $40 billion, WisdomTree ranks among the top five largest ETF providers in the United States. WisdomTree pioneered dividend-weighted strategies 10 years ago, with DTD, the Total Dividend Fund being their core strategy. WisdomTree dividend-weighted ETFs have been able to outperform traditional capitalization-weighted benchmarks in eleven of their twelve strategies over their 10 year history as a firm.
WisdomTree recently introduced a core fixed income ETF, AGGY. AGGY is the WisdomTree Barclays Yield Enhanced U.S. Aggregate Bond Fund. It is designed to be used as a core fixed income alternative that can provide enhanced yield with exposure similar to the AGG. Using a rules-based methodology, security weightings included in the AGG are adjusted to tilt toward income within the AGGY ETF.
Heading into 2017, Siracusano is optimistic, hopes for a bounce in equities, and points to high expectations on corporate earnings. The WisdomTree 2017 Market Outlook Webcast will be hosted by RIA Channel for financial advisors: REGISTER NOW.
