OUR COMPANY VALUES

Across all of PGIM’s businesses, we maintain a commitment to investment performance, product innovation, and integrity, while serving the ever-changing needs of our global client base.

HOW WE DO BUSINESS

Investment Performance

Our mission is to achieve superior results for our clients. We set challenging targets, rigorously analyze returns, and continually deepen our expertise.

Talent and Culture

Each of our businesses has a partnership-like autonomy that benefits from PGIM’s resources and infrastructure. Our overall culture fosters the performance and collaboration that attract high-caliber talent and inspire long tenures. 

Innovation

We continually evolve our product offerings to meet client needs by developing new strategies, launching new funds, collaborating across our businesses and investing capital to test new ideas.

Winning with Integrity

PGIM has earned the trust of clients and our communities over decades by safeguarding their interests, keeping our promises and doing business the right way—with integrity.

RESPONSIBLE INVESTING


PGIM believes that Environmental, Social, and Governance factors (ESG) can be material when evaluating investment opportunities and risks. Considering these factors is consistent with our ultimate fiduciary duty—searching for the highest risk-adjusted returns for our clients. Upon a client’s request, we will customize the management of client mandates to specific ESG directives to the extent practicable. 

Three of the PGIM businesses—PGIM Real Estate, PGIM Fixed Income, and QMA—are signatories to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment. Additionally, PGIM has been a member of the Investment Network on Climate Risk since 2009, working with institutional investors on building best practices for sustainable investing.

 

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

 

As Diverse as Our Communities

Attracting and retaining diverse talent leads to more impactful and innovative solutions for our global client base. We are committed to providing an inclusive workplace that promotes the development of that talent, provides a collaborative environment and encourages all of us to bring our authentic selves to work every day. Achieving PGIM’s ambitious goals takes equally ambitious efforts to attract and retain a diverse employee base.

“Having diverse perspectives in our businesses is essential to our success. We understand that making diversity and inclusion a priority is not just the right thing to do; it’s a business imperative.”

Ambitious Recruiting, Talent Development

We offer numerous training and development programs for all employees, including the differently abled, LGBT individuals, minorities, women, and veterans. We also are committed to inclusionary practices and policies that boost the welfare and morale of all employees. In fact, PGIM was instrumental in securing Prudential Financial, Inc.'s (PFI) sponsorship, along with a number of other major corporations, of a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief in support of marriage equality.

Q&A: C-Suite Insights with David Hunt and Catherine Verhoff

In an interview with Ellen Kinlin, CEO of the Kinlin Company, for her Women’s Executives C-Suite Insights blog, David Hunt provided his thoughts on trends in asset management, particularly the need to correctly understand the ‘active-passive’ debate. He was joined by Catherine Verhoff to discuss the role of gender diversity in the business and the progress PGIM is making in that area. “We’re trying to show managers that diversity of thought is really important to the success of a business and we’re coming at it from a lot of different perspectives.”
