Who we serve

With a presence in more than 70 countries, our global firm provides direct access to the markets and companies in which we invest. It also allows us to have a more hands-on relationship with you, our client.

We manage portfolios for institutional clients of all sizes, across a range of industries including public and private pension funds, foundations and endowments, central banks, insurance companies, sub-advisory arrangements, and sovereign wealth funds.

Responsible Investing

Given our organization’s long-standing commitment to corporate stewardship and our track record in responsible property investing, we view the UNPRI as a natural progression in the development of our business. For this reason, we became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) in December 2010. All investment teams and boutiques within the global asset management business of Principal Global Investors are covered by our UNPRI signature, and consistent with our multi-boutique business model, each boutique will define the scope and pace of its own implementation path, driven by what fits best with its investment process and the needs of its clients.
