This Principal LifeTime Fund indirectly bears its pro rata share of the management fees incurred by the underlying Principal Funds in which this fund invests. Based on the asset allocation of the Principal LifeTime Funds outlined in the prospectus dated March 1, 2020, the weighted average operating expenses of the underlying funds are: Principal LifeTime Strategic Income, 0.59%; Principal LifeTime 2010, 0.60%; Principal LifeTime 2020, 0.64%; Principal LifeTime 2030, 0.768%; Principal LifeTime 2040, 0.64%; Principal LifeTime 2050, 0.67%. While the operating expenses of the underlying mutual funds are not part of the Principal LifeTime Fund's operating expenses they are included in the Total Investment Expense. Performance results shown for the Principal LifeTime Fund reflect the application of these expenses.
Equity investment options involve greater risk, including heightened volatility, than fixed-income investment options. Fixed-income investment options are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise.
Asset allocation and diversification do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Additionally there is no guarantee this investment option will provide adequate income at or through retirement.
These calculated returns reflect the historical performance of the oldest share class of the fund, adjusted to reflect a portion of the fees and expenses of this share class. For time periods prior to inception date of the fund, predecessor performance is reflected. Please see the fund's prospectus for more information on specific expenses, and the fund's most recent shareholder report for actual date of first sale. Expenses are deducted from income earned by the fund. As a result, dividends and investment results will differ for each share class.
Fixed-income and asset allocation investment options that invest in mortgage securities are subject to increased risk due to real estate exposure.
Additional target date portfolios may be added to the Principal LifeTime portfolios series to accommodate plan participants with later normal retirement dates as they enter the workforce. Participants may also choose a portfolio with a target date that does not match the intended retirement date. Compare the different portfolios to see how the mix of investments might shift.
