EAST RUTHERFORD AND EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ, June 29, 2016 – PNC Bank and the New York Giants announced a sponsorship agreement that aligns the brand of one of the National Football League’s (NFL) most storied franchises with PNC Wealth Management. The five-year agreement, set to begin with the start of the 2016 season, positions PNC as the official wealth management partner of the New York Giants.
The agreement is PNC’s first with an NFL franchise dedicated exclusively to its wealth management business and extends its relationship with the league, which includes exclusive status with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears. The sponsorship also brings together two nationally recognized brands with deep roots in a region with one of the largest mass audiences and competitive financial services environments in the nation. The market is home to an estimated 675,000 households with more than $1 million in investable assets. The agreement will enable PNC Wealth Management to increase brand visibility through activities that include a game sponsorship, internet promotion and potential community events focused on financial education.
“Our partnership with the Giants enables us to offer clients exclusive experiences, including interaction with the players, and provides the perfect opportunity to distinguish the PNC Wealth Management brand in one of the most intensely competitive markets in the nation,” Linda Bowden, PNC regional president of New Jersey. “With a shared commitment to achievement and the greater New Jersey region, there is no better organization to align with than the New York Giants.”
“PNC is an acknowledged leader in financial services and one of the industry’s top bank wealth managers,” John K. Mara, New York Giants President and CEO. “This is a terrific partnership that brings together two established organizations deeply committed to serving their respective audiences and the community as a whole.”
