Once clients have entered into an investment advisory program agreement, the PIM Portfolio Manager acts within the capacity of a fiduciary. As stated in the video these fiduciary duties are outlined in the SEC Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The PIM (Private Investment Management) program may not be suitable for all investors. Please carefully review the Wells Fargo Advisors advisory disclosure document for a full description of our services. The minimum account size for this program is $50,000.
