WisdomTree Files For 'Mystery' ETF
A recent filing from WisdomTree outlines the firm's plans to launch the Vident International Equity Fund. However, beyond explaining that the fund will invest in developed- and emerging-market equities via an index created by Vident Financial, there is precious little information in the filing. The filing is notable if only because WisdomTree's passively managed funds have up to this point only tracked in-house indexes. The fund will trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker "VIDI." The filing did not include fees.
