WisdomTree has expanded its quality and dividend ETF range with the launch of a US quality growth strategy.

The WisdomTree US Quality Growth UCITS ETF (QGRW) is listed on Deutsche Boerse and Borsa Italiana with a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.33%.

QGRW will be listed on the London Stock Exchange on 24 April.

QGRW tracks the WisdomTree US Quality Growth UCITS index, which captures US large-cap companies with strong quality, high profitability and growth characteristics, while also meeting WisdomTree’s ESG criteria.

WisdomTree said the quality factor “enhances portfolio stability” and screens out the least profitable, most speculative and lowest-quality investments.

The growth factor captures high-growth companies to enhance potential profits.

Pierre Debru, head of quantitative research and multi-asset solutions at WisdomTree, said: “QGRW is an alternative to growth strategies such as the Nasdaq 100, as it takes a more holistic approach to portfolio construction instead of focusing solely on the market capitalisation of constituents or their stock exchange listing.”

Alexis Marinof (pictured), head of Europe at WisdomTree, added: “By focusing on quality rather than market capitalisation, investors can benefit from a more robust approach than market cap-weighted growth funds, without sacrificing returns in up markets.”

QGRW mirrors WisdomTree’s US ETF – launched in 2022 – which has amassed $324.7m since inception.

WisdomTree recently added to its range of quality and dividend ETFs with the launch of a UK equities strategy last November.
