Two Fund Families are Now One

Last September, PNC Financial merged Allegiant Asset Management with PNC Capital Advisors to form PNC Capital Advisors LLC. This week, the union of the PNC and Allegiant fund families became complete, PNC spokesman Fred Solomon told The MFWire.

The combined fund family, which carries the PNC Funds brand, has $31 billion of assets across 33 mutual funds.

The completion of the fund merger came a little over a year after PNC Financial acquired Allegiant's parent, National City, in December 2008.

Kevin McCreadie, as reported by The MFWire last September, is president of PNC Capital Advisors LLC.

The PNC Funds are distributed by Professional Funds Distributor, LLC. The funds are sold through banks, direct institutional and third party broker-dealers.

PNC Global Investment Servicing, which is in the process of being purchased by Bank of New York Mellon, provides fund administration, accounting and transfer agency services. PFPC Trust Company is the custodian, Deloitte & Touche LLP serves as the funds' independent registered public accounting firm, and Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP serves as legal counsel.
