High & Enhanced Yield Bond 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.
