At Principal, we strive to make financial security accessible to more people.  We’ve learned over the years that people can live their best lives when they feel secure.

The content of the video demonstrates Principal Financial Group’s commitment towards Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

Everything we do is built around this understanding. We work to serve people whether individuals or business, where they are on their financial journey, understanding their progress, possibilities, and challenges—then providing a choice to a clearer path forward.   We want more people to share in this confidence.  

We’re committed to expanding the population of those living in financial security, doing so through long-term, responsible and sustainable actions, and creating new opportunities for generations to come. We believe in doing the right thing for our employees, customers, communities, and the planet.  

To drive greater progress toward our mission of global financial security, we’ve made the intentional decision to focus on the foundation-building work of financial inclusion. Financial inclusion means that individuals and businesses have access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs—from savings to education and advice—and that these foundational tools are delivered in a responsible and sustainable way.
