When you’re busy with your day-to-day life, you have little time for anything else, let alone time to manage your investments. Learn how a managed account program may be the simple solution to help you navigate the complex world of investing.

What is a Managed Account?

With thousands of investment options available, it can be difficult to create a cohesive and intelligent portfolio. One option to consider is a managed account, which is an investment account owned by you and managed by a professional money manager. With this type of account, you can select from available portfolio models that align with your individual needs, goals, and other circumstances. A professional money manager guides the portfolio model’s investments and overall strategy.

Managed accounts can provide you with:

  • A trusted relationship with an investment professional
  • The ability to streamline your financial lives
  • Access to fund shares typically not available to individual investors
  • Protection from the emotional and behavioral traits that lead many investors astray

MTS receives compensation in the form of a commission, mark-up/mark-down, dealer concession or other usual and customary compensation, depending on the role played by MTS. In certain circumstances, WTIM  may direct  certain securities transactions to be executed through MTS when WTIM has specifically determined that trading through MTS will provide best execution for the client. WTIM will purchase bonds or other securities from MTS subject to legal and regulatory restrictions on transactions between affiliates, including limits on the amount and rating of securities purchased and limits on compensation that may be paid by WTIM or received by MTS.WTIM’s affiliates, Wilmington Funds Management Corporation (“WFMC”) and Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors, Inc.
