S&P Target Date 2055 Index provides varying levels of exposure to equities and fixed income. Each target date allocation is created and retired according to a pre-determined schedule related to the respective target date.
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.
The Investment Advisor will display "Multiple Sub-Advisors" for certain target-date, target-risk and specialty investment options where the assets are directed by the Investment Manager to multiple underlying investment options. These underlying investment options may use multiple sub-advisors who are responsible for the day-to-day management responsibilities.
There is no guarantee that a target date investment will provide adequate income at or through retirement. A target date fund's (TDF) glidepath is typically set to align with a retirement age of 65, which maybe your plan's normal retirement date (NRD). If your plan's NRD/age is different, the plan may default you to a TDF based on the plans NRD/Age. Participants may choose a TDF that does not match the plan's intended retirement date but instead aligns more to their investment risk. Compare the different TDF's to see how the mix of investments shift based on the TDF glide path.
Selecting a target date fund series is also authorizing any additional vintage which is launched by the investment provider for the series, and included in their associated materials, to be added to the plan after proper notification.
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.
