New York-based Wisdom Tree Investments has changed the names of six of its stock ETFs to include “equity income fund.”

“The equity income name better articulates the investment strategy of these six funds which focus on the highest dividend-yielding stocks in their respective indexes,” stated WisdomTree’s president & COO Bruce Lavine. He added, “Equity income continues to be an important category for investors.”

The new (and old) names are as follows:

-DHS WisdomTree Equity Income Fund (WisdomTree High-Yielding Equity Fund);

-DTH WisdomTree DEFA Equity Income Fund (WisdomTree DEFA High-Yielding Equity Fund);

-DEW WisdomTree Europe Equity Income Fund(WisdomTree Europe High-Yielding Equity Fund);

-DNL WisdomTree Japan Equity Income (Fund WisdomTree Japan High-Yielding Equity Fund);

-DNH WisdomTree Pacific ex-Japan Equity Income Fund (WisdomTree Pacific ex-Japan High-Yielding Equity Fund); and

-DEM WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income Fund (WisdomTree Emerging Markets High-Yielding Equity Fund).

The equity-income family is a subset of WisdomTree’s family of 34 domestic and international dividend funds. The investment objectives and fee structure of the funds remained unchanged.
