A strategy’s focus on ESG factors will cause it to sell or avoid certain stocks. Such stocks may subsequently perform better than stocks selected considering ESG factors.

Indexes are not available for direct investment. Investment in a strategy, such as the ESG Equity Strategy will incur expenses such as management fees and transaction costs which would reduce returns. There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. Asset allocation or diversification cannot ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss.

Investment products are not insured by the FDIC or any other governmental agency, are not deposits of or other obligations of or guaranteed by Wilmington Trust, M&T, or any other bank or entity, and are subject to risks, including a possible loss of the principal amount invested.
