Total Returns



Investment results shown represent historical performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal values fluctuate with changes in interest rates and other market conditions so the value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original costs. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.

Where gross and net expense ratios differ, the investment adviser has contractually agreed to limit the investment option's expenses. Differences also may be due to the investment adviser's decision to pay (through the same dates) certain expenses that would normally be payable by the fund.

International and global investing involves greater risks such as currency fluctuations, political/social instability and differing accounting standards.

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.

Fixed-income and asset allocation investment options that invest in mortgage securities are subject to increased risk due to real estate exposure.

This Principal Strategic Asset Management Portfolio (SAM) indirectly bears its pro rata share of the management fees incurred by the underlying Principal Funds in which this portfolio invests.

While the operating expenses of the underlying mutual funds are not part of the SAM Portfolio operating expenses they are included in the Total Investment Expense. Performance results shown for the SAM Portfolios reflect the application of these expenses.
