An Annuity is an insurance-based contract that provides future payments at regular intervals in exchange for current premiums. An annuity is a flexible investment, offering an excellent way for investors to save for retirement. Select either a regular stream of income or a lump sum payout at some future time. Fixed-rate annuities provide a guaranteed rate of interest. You may also elect a variable rate, which is dependent upon the underlying portfolio. Annuities offer a variety of features including: tax deferral, potential for guaranteed payments, and possible death benefits. However, annuities are not suitable for every investor. Your Wilmington Capital representative can help you decide if annuities would benefit your unique situation.
Through Wilmington Capital's financial planning services, we can help you anticipate the financial situations you may encounter.

Having a solid financial game plan helps define the strategy for a disciplined savings and investment program. This game plan is essential in meeting life's important financial goals.
Many individuals spend their time worrying about which stocks and bonds to own. While sound stock and bond selection makes a difference, studies have shown that asset allocation (the process of dividing your assets among stocks, bonds, and other investments to maximize returns for an appropriate level of risk) is more important than specific stock or bond picks. Investors must also be aware that diversification does not ensure against loss.
What this means is that Asset Allocation can be the key to your financial success. So whether you are investing in stocks, bonds, or any other products, Wilmington Capital can guide you to the right financial combination.
Bonds (taxable and non taxable) are the essence of many investors' portfolios. When you purchase a bond, you are lending money to the issuer. The issuer promises to pay principal and interest on a specified maturity date. Bonds generally tend to lower the risk profile of an investment portfolio ultimately providing lower and sometimes less risky but consistent returns. Wilmington Capital?s seasoned, experienced representatives enjoy a long-standing reputation for finding quality and value in taxable and tax-exempt bonds. We offer both short-term and long-term fixed income strategies. Our broad range of bonds includes agency securities, corporate bonds, municipals, and treasuries. Your Financial consultant could help you simplify the complex process of investing in bonds to enhance your investment income or prepare you for future expenses (college or retirement). Please discuss bond specifics such as: credit rating, maturity, coupon, prices, and yields with your broker to identify if bonds are appropriate for you.
A closed-end fund is a type of investment company whose shares are listed on a stock exchange or is traded in the over-the-counter market. The assets of a closed-end fund are professionally managed in accordance with the fund's investment objective and policies, and may be invested in stocks, bonds, or a combination of both. One major advantage of closed-end funds is the diversification they provide. Like other publicly traded securities, the market price of closed-end fund shares fluctuates and is determined by supply and demand in the marketplace.
Equities, also referred to as common stocks, represent ownership rights in a corporation. Equities are an important part of a well-balanced portfolio and although entail more risk than other types of financial assets in the short run, they usually provide the highest returns and the greatest margins over inflation. Investors seeking to pursue growth as a long-term objective should consider common stocks.

Mutual Funds offer individual investors the benefits of pooling their money with that of many other investors for greater buying power. They also allow investors to own many securities (stocks, bonds, and other products) that they could normally not afford to invest in individually. Other benefits offered by Mutual Funds are professional management and diversification. Many funds are available to meet specific investment styles such as: growth, value, large cap, international, etc. We offer a diverse and extensive array of fund families.
