Rayne Steinberg, co-founder of WisdomTree with $75 billion of assets under management.



In the tenth and final episode of Blockworks’ “Generational Arbitrage,” host Tyler Neville speaks with Rayne Steinberg, co-founder of WisdomTree with $75 billion of assets under management.

After leaving WisdomTree in 2011, Rayne went on to co-found Arca in 2018. In three years Arca managed to grow to $400 million in digital assets under management.
