Benefitting from the complementary nature of our business

As a leading wealth manager in the US, a global asset manager and a differentiated insurance and annuity provider, Ameriprise is a powerful, diversified business. In addition to the broad capabilities we offer to clients, we also benefit from the intellectual capital and insights we draw from across the organization. This important perspective is essential to how we manage the firm, capture opportunities and manage risk.

Effectively managing risk

Enterprise risk management is an integral part of our business decision framework, as we believe a robust enterprise risk management program is critical to preserving and creating sustainable, long-term shareholder value and delivering for all our stakeholders. We devote significant resources to develop policies, procedures and controls to identify, monitor and manage risk, and our corporate values foster a culture of compliance and risk awareness.

Offering a broad selection of investment options within Wealth Management

Ameriprise offers an extensive variety of investment options for clients, including Sustainable Investing and value-based investing products. In our wealth management business, we define Sustainable Investing to include three distinct areas:

  • ESG integration that looks to consider ESG factors within the portfolio management process
  • Impact investing that seeks to generate positive, measurable impact
  • Value-based investing that seeks alignment with one’s values, typically by excluding certain sectors or companies
