Why WisdomTree is Gaining Assets
About This Episode
While market volatility is to thank for significant portfolio losses across the board, WisdomTree funds attracted almost $4 billion of inflows in the second quarter of 2022, the firm’s strongest quarter since 2015, and met a new milestone with 82% of its AUM exceeding benchmarks – something my guest, E-Trade veteran and WisdomTree president and COO, Jarrett Lilien, hasn’t seen any asset manager achieve over his 30+ year career.
We will discuss what’s driving this growth at a time when so many investors are tracking losses.
