Read MoreHide Full Article

WisdomTree, Inc. (WT - Free Report) reported total assets under management (AUM) of $109.22 billion as of May 31, 2024. This reflected a 3.1% increase from the prior month level. The growth was primarily driven by total net inflows.

WT, in May, recorded inflows of $10 million, $429 million, $153 million, $303 million and $56 million from U.S. equity, international developed market equity, emerging market equity, fixed income and cryptocurrency, respectively.

These inflows were partially offset by outflows from commodity and currency, alternatives and leveraged & inverse of $330 million, $13 million and $29 million, respectively.

The company’s strong organic growth profile, along with a solid AUM balance, is likely to aid its top line in the near term. However, a challenging operating environment is a major near-term headwind, which might hurt its financials to some extent.

Over the past six months, WT shares have jumped 52.4% compared with 1.5% growth of the industry.
