Alternative Funds

WisdomTree strategies combine the promise of active management, such as the potential of outperformance against a benchmark, with the benefits of passive management to create ETFs built for performance

Pioneering alternative weighting methods commonly referred to as “smart beta”, WisdomTree ETFs in fact are not beta, smart or otherwise—they are an investment innovation we call "Modern Alpha®".

Modern Alpha® combines the outperformance potential of active management by selecting securities a portfolio manager believe to be the best in attempting to outperform the market with the benefits of passive management—to offer investors cost-effective funds that are built for performance.


WisdomTree Alternative ETFs list a range of Modern Alpha® investment strategies, setting the funds apart

  • balancing investments in large cap equity with U.S. Treasuries futures - NTSX
  • seeking to benefit from short-term market volatility by selling a sequence of one-month, at-the-money, S&P 500 Index puts, with exposure to a potential market reversal - PUTW
  • broad based, diversified commodity exposure by way of futures contracts - GCC
  • a combination of diversified futures contracts for commodities, currencies and interest rates, not directly correlated to the broad market - WTMF
  • investments in mortgage-related debt and other securitized debt - MTGP


WisdomTree U.S. Corporate Bond is the benchmark of this theme
