  1. 1. FOR BUSINESS OWNERS Solutions That Give Business Owners and Executives an Edge
  2. 2. You can count on us. For more than 125 years, business leaders across America have leaned on the Principal Financial Group® (The Principal®) to help them secure their financial futures. As a member of the FORTUNE 500, we have a depth of resources and understanding of the retirement and employee benefit needs of business owners like you. Working with us puts you in the company of more than 15 million individuals and their families served by our diversified family of insurance and financial services companies.
  3. 3. Will your business continue to provide financial security for you, your key employees and your families? How will you recruit and retain your key employees?
  4. 4. Prepare for financial security Financial challenges and opportunities inevitably lie ahead. As a business owner, you should be prepared. You need to identify all of the financial needs of you, your business and your key employees. Then, you can assess the role of your company in meeting these needs. Considering all the options can help maximize the effectiveness of your business for everyone involved.
  5. 5. Tailored solutions The Principal gives you access to a complete package of customized solutions to help give an edge to you, your business and your key employees. These solutions have been categorized into six primary areas of financial need. After helping you identify and prioritize your needs, we can focus on offering solutions to enhance your financial security.
  6. 6. Exit planning What is your business worth? Is there a market for selling it? Do you have a succession plan in place? A comprehensive plan will address your exit timeline, the proper value of your business and to whom you want to transfer your business. For example, if you choose to sell your business, a sale generating a low income stream may result in an “income gap,” while a sale generating a high income stream may trigger other planning challenges and opportunities. In either case, working with your tax and legal advisors, The Principal can help you customize a plan to meet your overall objectives. Wealth transfer Are you ready to preserve what it has taken you a lifetime to accumulate? Help minimize the impact of taxes and expenses on your estate and on your business upon your death. The effective transfer of assets to your intended beneficiaries is a top priority for most successful owners and can be accomplished with effective estate and business planning techniques.
  7. 7. Business protection Could your business continue without a partner, a key employee – or even you? We can help you implement business protection strategies to preserve, protect and promote the value of your business in order to better facilitate a subsequent transfer to family members, key employees, other owners or third parties. Retirement income Are you and your key employees able to save enough money for retirement? Limitations in qualified plans and Social Security create a “retirement gap,” causing you to receive as little as 30% of your current income at retirement. The Principal is uniquely positioned to help provide you with a consolidated, seamless solution that can provide retirement plan services and benefits for you and all of your employees.
  8. 8. Survivor income Is your family’s future protected should something happen to you or your business? You know how to operate a successful business. Our survivor income solutions can help provide peace of mind for you knowing your family can achieve financial objectives such as paying for college or paying off a mortgage should something happen to you. Income protection Would a disability have a devastating impact on your financial security should you become too sick or hurt to work? The Principal can help minimize that impact should the unexpected happen. You need to protect your savings or retirement assets from being spent on keeping the doors of your business open until you could return to work.
  9. 9. Address all your employer needss In addition to the individual needs of you and your employees, your business is likely also interested in offering group benefits and retirement plans. You can rely on The Principal for a broad spectrum of qualified retirement plan solutions as well as group insurance products and services.
