Banco do Brasil and The Principal have enjoyed mutual success with our joint venture firm, BrasilPrev, which has become one of Brazil's top retirement services companies.

Vice President — Retail Business, Banco do Brasil

As a global leader in investment management, we help more than 18 million customers around the world save, invest, insure their assets and achieve their dreams. Our unique mix of businesses and distribution capabilities positions us to better serve the needs of our customers — every day. The synergies created by our expertise in retirement savings, retirement income, investment management and insurance set us apart from our competitors and provide unparalleled value for our clients.

Retirement Savings, Retirement Income, Investment Management and Insurance

The synergies among the distinct mix of businesses at The Principal multiply our growth opportunities.

In the U.S.

In the U.S., we target growing businesses, their owners and employees. We offer integrated retirement savings, payout solutions, investment products and services, as well as individual insurance products. We are an attractive partner for advisors and alliance firms, who recognize the strength of our strategy and our commitment to helping them grow their businesses.

Outside the U.S.

Outside the U.S., we're exporting our successful retirement franchise into fast-growing emerging markets with booming middle class populations. In key markets, we partner with large, respected financial institutions, whose local knowledge and powerful distribution complement our retirement and investment expertise. As a result, we've already established a top 10 market leadership position in five countries.

The acquisitions of Claritas and Cuprum underscore how we're capitalizing on our investment expertise to grow and succeed in emerging countries with fast-growing middle class markets in Latin America and Asia.

Top-tier investment performance

The engine underlying all of our success is our ability to deliver top-tier investment performance. Principal Global Investors' multi-boutique asset management strategy offers deep and broad expertise across asset classes to meet investor's varying needs. This includes investing on behalf of other lines of business at The Principal, as well as managing funds for unaffiliated institutional investors.

Investment Management Plus

Our Investment Management Plus strategy — helping customers save, invest and insure their assets and manage their lifetime income — is more relevant than ever before. Our execution of this strategy generates more fee-based operating earnings, generating capital to be returned to shareholders and to help us grow, both of which strengthen long-term value for shareholders.
