2. For the purposes of the letter agreement (the “Executive Agreement”) dated as of December 22, 2016 between you and WisdomTree Asset Management, Inc.

a. In Paragraph 7, “twelve months” shall be amended to read “eighteen months” in the sentence describing COBRA insurance; and

b. Paragraph 3(b)(ii) shall be amended to read: “(ii) in the event of an Involuntary Termination (as defined below) of your employment, (I) you shall be entitled to accelerated vesting only with respect to the shares of Restricted Stock, if any, that would have vested during the Post-Employment Period, (II) vesting shall otherwise cease as of the Date of Termination, but your non-vested shares of Restricted Stock will not be forfeited until the later of (a) the last day of the Post-Employment Period and (b) April 30, 2020, and (III) if a Change of Control occurs on or before the later of (a) the last day of the Post-Employment Period and (b) April 30, 2020, you shall be entitled to the same vesting with respect to the shares of Restricted Stock as you would have if you had been employed on the date of the Change of Control.”
