New role underscores the firm’s commitment to global capital markets and retirement planning industriesWilmington Trust, a leader in corporate and institutional services, announced it has promoted Lauren Mance to the newly created position of Investment Leader for its Institutional Client Services (ICS) business. In this role, Mance will set and lead the investment strategy for the firm’s Global Capital Markets (GCM) and Retirement and Institutional Custody Services (RICS) segments. She will report to F. Jim Della Sala, Head of Strategy and Product Development.
“In an uncertain global economic environment characterized by persistently low yields, I am thrilled to be a part of an organization where I can help deliver investment solutions for our clients to meet these challenges,” said Mance. “I’m looking forward to building long-term relationships with our GCM clients as a key contact for their investment decisions and helping to optimize our RICS third-party functions to enhance service to our retirement planning clients.”
Working closely with the GCM sales team, Mance will help deliver relevant investment solutions for clients, including external funds and internally manufactured products. She will also support RICS as a member of the firm’s Investment Policy Oversight Committee (IPOC) and RICS Management Committee, where she will oversee RICS third-party manager research and sub-advisor selection.
“Our global ICS client base has more than doubled over the past three years, which necessitated creating the Investment Leader role to further expand and deepen our relationships,” said Della Sala. “Our business is built on consistently providing quality service and products for our clients. Promoting an experienced professional with Lauren’s deep expertise into this role helps us continue to fulfill that mission and strengthens our position as the provider of choice in this space.”
