Renee Schaaf, head of Principal Financial Group's retirement and income solutions division, talked about the three guiding principles that will guide the integration of their impending acquisition, Wells Fargo's institutional retirement and trust division. Meanwhile, John Moody is preparing to combine two recordkeepers' under one brand.
