The DEFA in WisdomTree DEFA Fund (NYSE:DWM) stands for Dividend Index of Europe, Far East Asia and Australasia. This makes the Wisdom Tree ETF an emerging-market play — but one with a high yield above 4%. Just make sure you know you’re getting into a global investment here if you want to play ball. The expense ratio is reasonable; however, the share performance in the red over the last 12 months is a sign that you can take a beating, even if you’re getting bigger dividends with this fund.
