Prudential Financial, whose main headquarters are based right here in Newark, has been loyal to The Hive and stood behind our students for decades. They were our first corporate donor when the school reopened in 1973.

About Prudential Financial:

In 1875, Prudential Financial, Inc. founder John Dryden chose Newark as the starting place to launch a disruptive idea – offering life insurance protection to everyday families. More than 140 years later that founding promise – that working-class people should be able to achieve some measure of financial security and peace of mind – remains the same.

Prudential’s strong sense of purpose guides our efforts to help people now and in future generations achieve financial security, through our products and services, but also through our investments and partnerships.

This is best seen through our commitment to our hometown of Newark. In the last decade alone, Prudential has committed more than $1 billion to spread economic and social opportunity across Newark to create meaningful and lasting change. This is done through partnerships across the city, like our support of St. Benedict’s Prep and through our commitment to the city’s infrastructure, innovation and education.

Today, Prudential is a global financial services leader with more than $1 trillion of assets under management. Recognized as the top life and health insurer on the 2017 Fortune World’s Most Admired Companies, Prudential’s iconic Rock symbol stands for strength, stability, expertise and innovation around the world. With operations in the U.S., Asia, Europe and Latin America – and through the talent and diversity of our employees, the company remains committed to helping individual and institutional clients grow and protect their assets through a variety of products and services including life insurance, annuities, retirement-related services, mutual funds and investment management. Prudential operates in 40 countries and has more than 49,000 employees committed to bringing financial security to more people around the world.
