Symbol: AGGY Exchange: NYSE Arca
Name: WisdomTree Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Enhanced Yield Fund Net Expense Ratio: 0.12%


The WisdomTree Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Enhanced Yield Fund seeks to track the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Enhanced Yield Index.


The Barclays U.S. Aggregate Enhanced Yield Index is designed to broadly capture the U.S. investment grade, fixed income securities market while seeking to enhance yield within desired risk parameters and constraints. Rather than re-weight individual securities, the Index uses a rules-based approach to re-weight subgroups of the Barclays US Aggregate Index with the aim of earning a higher yield while broadly retaining the risk characteristics of the Barclays US Aggregate Index.

To be eligible for inclusion in the Index, debt securities must have at least $250 million in par amount outstanding with the exception of asset-backed securities and commercial mortgage-backed securities which must have an original deal size of $500 million, a minimum tranche size of $25 million, and at least $300 million of the original transaction still outstanding. The Index consists of U.S. Treasuries and U.S. Government-related bonds (e.g., obligations of the U.S. Government or its agencies or instrumentalities), corporate bonds, mortgage-backed pass-through securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities, and asset-backed securities that are publicly offered for sale in the United States. Index components are U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities with fixed rate coupons that have at least one year to final maturity.
