New Wilmington Funds family offers array of investment choices
PR Newswire
WILMINGTON, Del.

WILMINGTON, Del., March 12, 2012 -- M&T Bank and Wilmington Trust have reorganized the MTB Group of Funds and Wilmington Funds into one fund family. The new and expanded "Wilmington Funds" offers a broader portfolio of investment choices for clients.

Wilmington Funds (www.wilmingtonfunds.com) now boasts 25 funds and $13.8 billion in assets as of Dec. 31, 2011. The new continuum of funds offer investment depth and asset class coverage through a total of four money market funds, nine fixed income funds, three asset allocation funds, seven equity funds, a multi-manager real asset fund, and an alternatives fund. The complete list of funds is below.

"The reorganization of these two fund families creates a strategic spectrum of mutual funds designed to address a wide range of investor goals with choices ranging from money market, fixed income, equity, and asset allocation funds," said Ken Thompson, senior vice president of Asset Management. "Through the new Wilmington Funds we can provide our clients with a wide array of mutual funds to help meet their investment goals."

Wilmington Funds, advised by Wilmington Funds Management Corporation (WFMC), offers focused equity choices including: small, mid, and large cap growth, large cap value, and a multi-manager international equity fund.

"Having worked alongside and served ultra-high-net-worth and institutional clients, we've learned something about their unique needs," said Sam Fraundorf, president of Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors, Inc. (WTIA), the primary sub-adviser to the Wilmington Funds. "This experience has enabled us to develop differentiated mutual fund solutions that provide for these needs."

Recognizing the increasing income needs of clients, Wilmington Trust broadens its taxable fixed income offerings to include short-duration corporate and government funds, and intermediate and broad market funds.

"Given our expertise working with successful individuals and families, there is a particular focus on our municipal operation, where we offer both national municipal and state specific municipal bond funds," said Bob Truesdell, head of Wilmington Trust's Fixed Income team.

Wilmington Trust will also maintain its suite of money market offerings including U.S. Government, U.S. Treasury, prime, and tax-exempt funds.

In addition, Wilmington Funds offers a range of strategic allocation funds, a multi-manager real asset fund, and an alternatives fund that invests in a variety of hedge strategies.

RISKS:

Investing in mutual funds involves risks, including the potential loss of the initial amount invested.

Asset allocation does not assure a profit or protect against a loss.

An investment in money market funds is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.  Although money market funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investment in these funds.

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.  Stock markets, especially foreign markets, are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market or economic developments.

Alternative strategies may use aggressive investment approaches, which can be riskier than those typically associated with mutual funds.  If a fund employing alternative strategies is unsuccessful, the fund and you may lose more money than if you had invested in another fund that did not invest aggressively.  Alternative strategies are subject to risks associated with sub‐advisers making trading decisions independently, investing in other investment companies, using a particular style or set of styles, basing investment decisions on historical relationships and correlations, trading frequently, using leverage, making short sales, being non‐diversified and investing in securities with low correlation to the market.  The use of leverage may magnify losses.  Alternative strategies are also subject to risks associated with investments in developed foreign markets, emerging market securities, small cap companies, debt securities, derivatives, commodity‐linked instruments, illiquid securities, asset‐backed securities and CMOs.  Please read the prospectus and summary prospectus for any fund for detailed information on risk considerations.
