Principal Financial Seeks Acquisitions

Principal Financial Group Inc. (NYSE:PFG) said it still believes in asset management boutiques and is seeing plenty of acquisition opportunities. A surprise $44.2 million loss connected to a boutique business in the 2014 fourth quarter has not diminished Principal Financial's enthusiasm for asset management M&A, executives said during a January 30, 2015 conference call to discuss earnings. Principal Financial is seeing greater opportunity for asset management acquisitions, as well as potential purchases abroad, as European companies streamline their operations and sell off noncore units. Principal Financial said it plans to spend $800 million to $1.0 billion on capital management in 2015, which could include strategic M&A as well as further investments in joint ventures and asset management boutiques. "That's a great opportunity because these are already high-performing, highly profitable companies where the incremental return on capital is very high," Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Larry Zimpleman said during the call.
