The PIM program is designed for investors who:
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 from 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, a proxy exam, and an advanced, 40-hour portfolio management training course.
Only 5% of the firm’s Financial Advisors have met the criteria to act as PIM Portfolio Managers.
We will guide you through a consulting process to ascertain your investment goals and risk parameters and then use asset allocation to construct a portfolio of various securities chosen to help meet your financial objectives.
As your Portfolio Manager, we will actively manage your portfolio on an ongoing, discretionary basis using our individual investment style.
By appointing experienced investment professionals to provide you with sound investment advice, manage your portfolio, and rebalance your investment mix when necessary, you free yourself from the time-consuming task of choosing and reviewing your investments.
