The launch of the new 30-second spot, titled “Trust,” coincides with International Women’s Day. “Trust” depicts a woman reflecting on her long and trusted relationships with the women in her inner circle. Among this group is the woman’s Ameriprise advisor, Beth, who was referred to her by one of her closest friends.
