Wisdom Tree's Weak Financial Position

|Includes: WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF)

Being a resident of Vancouver I am used to reading financial statements from companies whose primary function is to transfer funds from investors into management pockets. I am astonished to find that Wisdom Tree is basically playing the same game.

How is it that financial advisors can recommend funds that are being administered by a company that is carrying forward a retained negative earnings ~$140m? I became aware of this as I was considering an investment in one of the Wisdom Tree ETFs, but when I see the sad financial state of the management company, which seems to be entirely related to overcompensation, I do not feel comfortable entrusting my money to their management. How can these funds be recommended by any financial advisor?

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
