For the past 22 years, PNC Wealth Management and Institutional Investments [PRWeb – warning: plays music] has created a Christmas Price Index [warning: plays music]. Its a more fun type of CPI to deal with.
The CPI is a creative effort used by educators to teach students about economic indicators and inflation (and future potential wealth management clients). PNC does a really nice job with it so the inference here is if they can track 3 French hens and 6 Geese Laying (I thought it was “a-laying”), then just imagine what they can do with swaps, bonds and mutual funds.
I hate to be PC here, but it seems like there is ample opportunity for other firms to enter the fray, tackling holidays in the index format like Eight Days of Hanukkah and The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa.
