eb-1 approval secured for gaurav sinha, asset allocation strategist

Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg has secured EB-1 (Extraordinary Ability) classification on behalf of Mr. Gaurav Sinha and WisdomTree Asset Management, Inc.  Mr. Sinha is recognized as an extraordinary Asset Allocation Strategist, who has made original contributions of major significance. 

One of the areas in which Mr. Sinha has established himself as a leader is in assisting with the development of new and alternative index weighting systems known as the “Smart Beta” approach. Mr. Sinha is part of a team at WisdomTree that pioneered an approach over 10 years ago to create indices that screen for and weight companies based on their fundamental characteristics, such as profits, dividends, earnings or quality of balance sheet data.  WisdomTree’s Smart Beta approach, which periodically rescreens and reweights index constituents based on such fundamental characteristics, is designed to help investors by increasing exposure to companies with sound fundamentals, as compared to indices that use a simple market capitalization weighting.  Techniques like these may produce superior total return, risk adjusted return and higher income. 

Mr. Sinha has made meaningful contributions to many of WisdomTree’s new equity index strategies.  Additionally, Mr. Sinha has developed new asset allocation strategies designed to mitigate market risk and provide practical solutions to a diverse client base.  Mr. Sinha has also appeared in numerous articles published in major financial publications including Forbes, Investor’s Business Daily, Barron’s and Seeking Alpha. It is our Firm’s honor to have represented WisdomTree and Mr. Sinha in securing approval of their immigrant petition.
