Voya Financial is an American financial, retirement, investment and insurance company based in New York, New York. Voya began as ING U.S., the United States operating subsidiary of ING Group, which was spun off in 2013 and established independent financial backing through an initial public offering.[3] In April 2014, the company rebranded itself as Voya Financial.[4] Voya's predecessors had first entered the U.S. market in the 1970s.

As of 2013, Voya served over 13 million customers with over $500 billion in assets under management.


The company's main center for broker-dealer (the ING Financial Partners division)[3] and annuities businesses is located in Des Moines, Iowa.[5] This center was first established in 1997 and employed 400 as of late 2014.[3][5]
