Information referenced in the e-mail regarding any Wilmington Fund is qualified in its entirety by the fund's prospectus, does not constitute investment advice and is not an offering of or a solicitation to buy or sell any security, product, service or fund, including any fund referenced herein. An offer for any Wilmington Fund can only be made by the fund's prospectus. Wilmington Funds may be offered only to U.S. residents. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a mutual fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about a mutual fund and is available on www.wilmingtonfunds.com or call 1-800-836-2211 for copies.

Performance Data

Any performance data depicted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Please contact us at 1-800-836-2211 for the most recent month-end performance data of the listed Funds or strategy.

Separately Managed Accounts

Any Separately Managed Account strategies referenced in the e-mail communication are managed by WTIA and/or WTNA. Further information regarding Separately Managed Account strategies managed by WTIA or WTNA should be obtained before investing in such strategies and is available upon request.

Risks of Investing

All investments involve risk, including possible loss of principal. Equity securities are subject to price fluctuation and possible loss of principal. International investments are subject to special risks, including currency fluctuations and social, economic, and political uncertainties, which could increase volatility. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. Investment in alternative strategies are subject to increased risk and loss of principal and are not suitable for all investors. The use of leverage may magnify losses. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss. There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. Any investment should be part of an overall investment program rather than, in itself, a complete program. If a fund or strategy invests in underlying funds or other managed strategies, an investor in the fund or strategy will bear the management fees and operating expenses of the “Underlying Strategies” in which the fund or strategy invests. The total expenses borne by such an investor will be higher than if the investor invested directly in the Underlying Strategies, and the returns may therefore be lower.

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, Wilmington Investment Management, M&T, or any other bank or entity, and are subject to risks, including a possible loss of the principal amount.


Wilmington Investment Management entities and their representatives/affiliates have a conflict of interest in the products or services mentioned in this material because, in certain instances, they engage their affiliates as a sub-advisor and/or other service provider, use investment vehicles and/or separately managed accounts managed by them or their affiliates and/ or have a financial interest in such products and services through direct or indirect compensation.
