Rebranding[edit]

In January 2016, Prudential Investment Management changed its name to PGIM in an effort to unify the brand as the firm expanded its global reach.

Both PGIM Fixed Income and PGIM Real Estate are signatories of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.[11][12]

The firm's headquarters, the Prudential Tower, is LEED Gold certified and features a rainwater retention irrigation system, a rooftop garden and walking track, two living green walls, and a parking garage outfitted with electric car charging stations.[5][13]
