Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On June 27, 2014, at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of WisdomTree Investments, Inc. ("Company"), the Company's stockholders approved the 2014 Annual Incentive Compensation Plan (the "2014 Plan"). The 2014 Plan provides that the Compensation Committee will determine the amount of the award payable to the Company's executive officers which shall be paid, in the Compensation Committee's discretion, in cash or, to the extent permissible under a stockholder-approved stock plan of the Company, in stock based awards under such plan. The board of directors approved the 2014 Plan subject to stockholder approval. Stockholder approval was obtained in order to comply with the applicable requirements of The NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. and to qualify certain awards made to certain officers as deductible for federal income tax purposes under Internal Revenue Code Section 162(m). Additional details about the 2014 Plan are set forth in Company's definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2014 ("Proxy Statement").
