Additionally, disciplined expense management led to significant improvement in operating margins and has enabled us to continue investing in market leading products and services.”

Steinberg continued, “With an increasing number of advisors looking to outsource asset allocation and portfolio construction, the development and distribution of our fully open architecture model portfolios remain a strategic priority for WisdomTree. We’ve made a key new hire for CIO of Model Portfolios who leads our Asset Allocation team and Investment Committee. We are also enhancing our relationship with Professor Jeremy Siegel in this space and intend to collaborate on model portfolios in the upcoming months. Model portfolios are an important aspect of our Advisor Solutions program along with portfolio construction tools, other technology tools, and access to practice management experts.”
