Investment Selection and Monitoring

Our Fiduciary Investment Services can help you fulfill your fiduciary responsibilities with respect to the selection and monitoring of your retirement plan’s lineup:

  • If you want to maintain discretion over your plan’s investment lineup, but you are seeking support with investment selection and monitoring decisions, then consider our non-discretionary 3(21) Investment Advisory Service.
  • If you are seeking to transfer discretion over your plan’s investment lineup, then consider our discretionary 3(38) Investment Management Service. With this service, PNC Bank will select and monitor the investment options for your plan.

Both services offer comprehensive screening and rigorous monitoring of the available investment fund options to help maintain your investment lineup’s focus, quality and performance.
