In 2019, Wilmington Trust, in partnership with the Nasdaq Fund Network, launched the first tickers for Collective Investment Trust (CITs). On September 30, 2020, we hosted an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary, discuss some learnings with industry professionals, and share our vision for the future. Join our panelists and moderator, Anya Krymkowski, Associate Director, Retirement, Cerulli Associates, as they discuss their perspectives and progress over the last year.

The role of an advisor or consultant when working with clients is to help in selecting and monitoring collective investment trusts (CITs).
