A fiduciary legacy: Wilmington Trust

Wilmington Trust was founded by T. Coleman duPont in 1903². Since that time, we have advised endowments, foundations, and other not-for-profit institutions on how to preserve and enhance their assets through all kinds of financial markets and economic swings. Over the century, fiduciary commitment is at the core of everything we do for our clients. It is both our duty and our privilege to provide our clients with a high standard of loyalty and care, putting their interests before our own.

That history is very much alive today and WTIA proudly carries the torch of fiduciary commitment to its clients.

Wilmington Trust is renowned for many reasons:

  • Relationships. Highly focused on understanding what is important to clients, we aim to incorporate comprehensive, customized, and cost-effective investment solutions.
  • Expertise. Direct client access to experienced senior investment and fiduciary professionals.
  • Confidence. Long-standing reputation as a fiduciary and asset management firm.

A proud heritage: M&T Bank

WTIA leverages the strength of M&T Bank, its parent company and a leading depository and lending franchise that was founded in 1856 as Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company.

*"Wilmington Trust" comprises a number of subsidiaries and affiliates of M&T Bank serving individual and institutional clients, including Wilmington Trust Company, Wilmington Trust, N.A., Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors, Inc., and Wilmington Trust Investment Management, LLC, as well as several other investment adviser affiliates.
