I am excited about what our team will accomplish for our customers and financial professionals moving forward.” 

Connecting customers and financial professionals with timely financial education and possible solutions is one of the top priorities at Principal. In the past year, the global financial services company has expanded Principal® Total Retirement Solutions, including the launch of Simply Retirement by Principal® 401k plans for small businesses and Principal® Equity Compensation Solutions, and continues to deliver timely resources to help individuals, businesses and financial professionals navigate COVID-19. The in-progress integration of the Wells Fargo Institutional Retirement & Trust business also supports increased investment in technology, resources and talent – as Principal works to help people save enough and have enough in retirement.
