NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (Nasdaq:WETF), an exchange-traded fund sponsor and asset manager, today announced that the underwriters for the public offering of 26,000,000 shares of WisdomTree common stock by certain of its existing stockholders exercised their option to purchase an additional 1,795,630 shares of its common stock.

A copy of the registration statement and prospectus supplement may be obtained from: BofA Merrill Lynch, Attn: Prospectus Department, 222 Broadway, New York, NY 10038, Email:; Barclays, c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717, Email:, Phone: (888) 603-5847; and Citigroup, c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717, Phone: (800) 831-9146.
