Investment Management

Portfolio Architect

When you want a managed account program that does the hard work for you, Portfolio Architect may be the solution. Portfolio Architect is a managed account program where assets are invested according to asset allocation models created by Wilmington Trust Investment Management, LLC (WTIM), and offered through M&T Securities, Inc. Explore more about this simple, intelligent, and versatile managed account program.

Simple: A diversified strategy

When it comes to investing, no one can predict the future, but there are ways to prepare for it.

Asset diversification has long been shown to be an important part of reducing volatility and enhancing returns over time.* With Portfolio Architect, asset allocation is built-in with a risk-weighted mix of equities, fixed income, and other asset classes. Those classes may be further broken down into different types of investments within each group.

Intelligent: A disciplined approach

The experienced team at WTIM includes economists, analysts, and portfolio managers who provide asset allocation, manager research, and portfolio construction insights. This team employs a disciplined approach, guided by market theory and economic data. In an effort to avoid emotions of “selling low” or “buying high” that have led many investors astray, they rely on a sophisticated process—analyze, implement, adjust—to incorporate their best thinking into the Portfolio Architect programs.

Versatile: A flexible framework

Portfolio Architect is a long-term investment program that offers a range of risk-adjusted strategies, from the most conservative (largely fixed income) to the most aggressive (largely or all equities). Each Portfolio Architect strategy is designed based on a given objective and amount of risk. And as your goals and risk appetite evolve, you can transition to a different strategy that may better suit the new you.
