Private Investment Management Program

The PIM program is a customized portfolio management program geared toward your specific investment goals. The Portfolio Manager Inman Wealth Management has met stringent criteria based on experience and expertise, and acts as your personal Portfolio Manager.

The Private Investment Management (PIM) program is designed for investors who:
  • Want a customized investment program based on an active approach to asset allocation
  • Prefer a portfolio manager who can make investment decisions on their behalf
  • Are seeking long-term portfolio management through diversification while keeping underlying investment costs down 
  • Seek the flexibility to build and maintain a portfolio using a diverse selection of investments
  • Value a high level of professional services and personal attention once available only to high-net-worth clients
The criteria for entry into the PIM program are more stringent than most other programs Wells Fargo Advisors offers.

The full process to obtain the PIM designation can take 60 days to complete and includes a three-step process. The first step is meeting basic eligibility requirements, which include a minimum of two years experience as a portfolio manager, five years of industry experience, successful completion of various securities exams, and approval of branch and regional superiors.

Only then can a Financial Advisor complete an application, which includes questions covering investment style, strategy, philosophy and research methods. Once approved, the Financial Advisor must complete advanced training, including an ethics exam, proxy exam and an advanced 40-hour portfolio management training course.

Only about ten percent of the firm’s Financial Advisors have met the criteria to act as PIM Portfolio Managers.


• Ability to hold a wide range of asset types within one portfolio, eliminating the need for multiple accounts
• Top-quality portfolio management expertise and personal services that were once available only to high-net-worth clients
• Access to Wells Fargo Advisors’ qualified and experienced Financial Advisors to act as your Portfolio Manager
• One fee based on the size of your account rather than traditional trade-based commission charges

Your Portfolio Maanger will guide you through a consulting process to ascertain your investment goals and risk parameters and then uses asset allocation to construct a portfolio of various securities chosen to help meet your financial objectives.

Your Portfolio Manager will actively manage your portfolio on an ongoing, discretionary basis, based on their individual investment style.

Asset allocation cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss in declining markets.
