LOS ANGELES—Wilmington Trust hired Irene Kung as a senior investment advisor in its Los Angeles Wealth Advisory office. Kung is responsible for developing customized investment portfolios for clients based on their unique parameters for risk, return, liquidity, and other factors.

Earlier in her career, Kung served as a senior research analyst at Transamerica Investment Management, where she analyzed senior loans, investment grade and high-yield bonds, and convertible securities.
