In this post, we will provide a review of the reconstitution of the WisdomTree International Quality Dividend Growth Index.

BHP and Rio Tinto are the two largest metals and mining companies in the world. Both have low levels of financial leverage and steady earnings and have benefited from a significant increase in the price of iron ore this year.
