N America News June 2017

14 NORTH AMERICA NEWS / JUNE 2017 , Ameriprise Financial pride themselves on being a company with integrity. We look deeper to see what else the company has to offer their clients and communities. Financing the Future Integrity has been a core value since they were founded by John Tappan in 1894. It’s how, through panics, recessions, the Great Depression and the recent Great Recession, they have grown into a global financial leader. Their claim to integrity is founded on the fact that they have never taken a bailout and never lost their focus on their clients. With more financial planning clients than any other firm, Ameriprise have more than $800 billion in assets under management and administration. This helps them to maintain leadership positions in each of their core business segments: Advice & Wealth Management, Asset Management, Annuities and Protection. John Tappan founded Ameriprise Financial with a singular vision; to help ordinary Americans achieve their financial dreams and feel confident about their futures. Throughout their long history, they have remained steadfast to this vision of putting their client’s needs first in every situation. The strength of this commitment is matched only by Ameriprise’s strength as a company. Through downturns, recessions, booms, the Great Depression and the recent Great Recession, they have honored every financial obligation to their clients and have never taken a bailout. Over the years, Ameriprise Financial have helped millions of people invest billions of dollars for what’s important to them. Today, the company is America’s leader in financial planning and a leading global financial institution. Every day – true to Tappan’s vision — the company’s 10,000 financial advisors work with their clients one-to-one, to help put their dreams and goals more within reach. For more than 120 years, Ameriprise Financial has helped clients to plan for a confident retirement and a brilliant future. This also extends into the communities in which the company is based. Through collaborating with non-profits, volunteerism, grants and individual giving, they help to create brilliant moments in our communities and help people thrive. Focusing on helping individuals struggling to meet basic needs achieve economic stability by funding efforts to solve domestic hunger, end homelessness, and build strong and active communities is the focus of Ameriprise’s community- focused charitable efforts. Awarding grant dollars to non-profits is another way the company strengthens their communities and help individuals on a path to financial independence. To ensure they are meeting the needs of their communities and making an even greater collective impact, they focus on three key giving areas when awarding grants. One of the company’s values is respect for individuals and the communities in which they live and work. Ameriprise employees and advisors demonstrate this value every day by generously donating their time and talents to volunteer service. Together they have donated more than $13 million and supported nearly 6,500 non-profits in 2016 through financial gifts and volunteerism. From the construction and operation of corporate buildings to the initiatives they encourage employees, advisors and clients to implement, Ameriprise Financial is committed to responsible environmental practices.
