As a PNC Wealth Management® client, you benefit from a customized strategy designed with your unique financial goals in mind.
Based on an understanding of your needs developed through a series of personal meetings, we'll devise a strategy that takes all of your concerns into account to help achieve your financial goals.
Your time horizon, return objectives, tax situation and unique personal circumstances all come together in a strategy that's tailored just for you.
Personal Investment Policy
Every client has unique needs, and our relationship is built around understanding yours
When you turn to PNC Wealth Management for advice on managing your wealth and achieving your financial objectives, the first thing we expect to do is get to know you. We listen intently to understand where you are in life, and what priorities may be driving your investment strategy.
Working Together for Your Success
Together, we will help to define your financial goals with precision. Based on an ongoing dialogue, we will help to establish your time horizon, gauge your appetite for risk, determine your liquidity requirements and formulate a return objective that takes the totality of your unique circumstances into account.
A personal investment policy statement may be your roadmap to success.
All of the parameters we've set out, from time horizon to return objective and everything in between, will be consolidated into a comprehensive personal investment policy statement.
This statement will formally document the points that you have agreed on with your advisor, including your asset allocation and investment guidelines. Using the investment policy statement as a key reference, your PNC advisor will monitor your progress and help determine that you're on track to meet your financial goals.
We believe asset allocation, or the process of investing your assets in the optimal mix of major asset classes, including stocks, bonds and cash, can contribute more to long-term investment results than any other strategy.
A well-constructed asset allocation model will distribute your investments among different types of assets to help effectively manage risk and help enhance the predictability of returns.
One of the most important approaches to investing may be diversification across asset classes.
Using a variety of proprietary tools and analytical techniques, we allocate your investments across asset classes based on your unique investment objectives. We call this strategic matching, which means that we establish a match between the asset allocation and your investment goals. Rather than focusing on outperforming a particular stock market index, our efforts are concentrated on helping you achieve your personal investment objectives.
Strategic matching establishes a road map to help you reach your long-term goals, and provides us with a basis for monitoring your progress. More importantly, it can help you move beyond thinking of results only in terms of beating common benchmarks such as the S&P 500®. We help keep you focused on what we believe really matters - achieving your long-term investment objectives.
