Tailored Investment Solutions for Corporations

    With PNC, you have access to powerful tools and insights to help you achieve your goals. In today’s constantly changing and complex environment, corporations are facing a unique set of challenges.


  • Managing investments and meeting fiduciary obligations — while balancing risk with available opportunities — is increasingly time and labor intensive. 
  • Recruiting, engaging, and retaining employees requires vigilant and effective management of defined benefit and defined contribution retirement plans. 
  • Persistently low interest rates hinder the ability to maximize short-term liquidity and reserve assets. 
  • Managing corporate foundations and other assets designated to impact communities and causes requires a combination of investment and nonprofit expertise.

        •  Liquidity solutions for pursuing yield and return goals while also managing the cadence of cash flows.

        •  Custom solutions that are tailored to your organization’s specific needs and objectives.

        •  Broad market portfolios that utilize traditional fixed income strategies and benchmark-based
           objectives for total return.

    Corporate Responsibility: An Unwavering Commitment to Our Customers, Employees and Communities

    We believe that our company should serve a greater purpose. That’s why we’re committed to the success of our employees, customers, and the communities we serve. We strive to minimize our impact on the environment. And we hold ourselves to the highest standards of governance and risk management.

    For our customers, our promise is to keep your goals at the center of everything we do. That’s why PNC Institutional Asset Management takes a solutions-based, consultative approach to investments. Rather than trying to sell a product, we start by working to understand your company’s unique needs, and asking “What do you need your assets to do?” Then we explore solutions to meet that goal through a strategic approach to risk that protects our customers and their stakeholders.

    We do all of this through strong, local leadership, collaboration with important local organizations, and by maintaining an active presence in the local community.
