A European ETF that Hedges Euro Currency Risks

ETF Trends

I do the “ETF of the Week” for MarketWatch every Thursday on Chuck Jaffe’s MoneyLife Show where I highlight big movers and disappointments within the exchange traded fund market.

This week, I looked at the WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity Fund (HEDJ) . HEDJ provides diversified exposure to European equities while hedging against the volatility and risks associated with a weaker euro currency.

HEDJ has been gaining assets recently as WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity (DXJ) rakes in cash. Clearly, WisdomTree (WETF) has been finding success with its currency-hedged ETFs. [WisdomTree Plans Small-Cap Yen-Hedged ETF]
