Here's what deal with Federated means for PNC

Pittsburgh’s largest bank isn’t exiting the asset management business, but selling some components of it has enabled PNC Financial Services Group Inc. to streamline operations and concentrate on what it does best. “This is a small part of our asset management business that, overall, is a very attractive, high-return business, and our focus is to accelerate its growth in a way that’s consistent with our Main Street philosophy,” Michael Lyons, PNC’s head of Corporate & Institutional Banking and Asset Management Group, said on Tuesday. “We’re doubling down on what we’re good at and handing off to players who have expertise the businesses where we didn’t have scale.” Before trading began, PNC (NYSE:PNC) announced that it has a deal in place to sell its money market mutual fund business within PNC Capital Advisors to Federated Investors Inc. for $52 million.
