Create value for customers: The Private Client Account Manager (PCAM) is responsible for the overall customer journey and experience. This begins with business development activities for prospective new customers, performing due diligence procedures and extends through all interactions with the client until the account is opened. The PCAM will continue to maintain a relationship with the client and work with the Private Client Service Manager (PCSM) to create value for customers. The PCAM is responsible for:
Advocate for customers: The PCAM is responsible for being the “voice of the customer” as it relates to product and process decisions. This may include the introduction of new products and services and the customer research that is required in order to bring them to market. Providing banking services to private clients also requires frequent interaction with Compliance, Cash Management and Technology personnel. The role of the PCAM is to listen to these supporting functions and to provide the client’s perspective. Often, a healthy dialogue is needed in order to figure out the best way to efficiently and effectively serve clients in this space. Once internal decisions have been made, the role of the PCAM is to communicate the impact of these decisions to clients in the most effective manner possible.
Ensure risk mitigation: The PCAM is responsible for understanding the nature of each client’s business and associated risks to Silvergate Bank. Using this knowledge, the PCAM should work with Compliance and Operations functions to mitigate risks and ensure that the client’s activity is consistent with bank policy, applicable laws and regulations. This includes an overall awareness and monitoring of customer interactions for early indicators.
Achieve deposit goals: The PCAM is responsible for working with the VP to achieve deposit goals for individual clients and the group as a whole. This is accomplished by providing tremendous value for clients, as outlined above, and by working to understand each client’s business model, their needs and progress towards goal achievement. The PCAM should be bold in asking for the deposit and hold the client accountable for following through but with understanding about the amount of effort and time required to raise capital.
