Morningstar's Star Ratings reflect risk adjusted performance and are derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three, five, and ten-year (if applicable) time periods.


Alpha- The difference between an investment's actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta).

Beta- An investment's sensitivity to market movements.

R-Squared- Ranges from 0 to 100 and reveals how closely an investment's returns track those of a benchmark index.

Standard Deviation- Measures how much an investment's returns are likely to fluctuate.

Mean- Represents the annualized total return for a fund over 3 years.

Sharpe Ratio- Measures how an investment balances risks and rewards. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the investment's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Excess Return- The difference between an investment option's return and the return of an external standard such as a passive index.

Tracking Error- Also known as "excess risk", is defined as the standard deviation or volatility of excess returns.

Information Ratio- A risk-adjusted measure commonly used to evaluate an active manager's involvement skill. It's defined as the manager's excess return divided by the variability or standard deviation of the excess return.

Insurance products and plan administrative services, if applicable, are provided by Principal Life Insurance Company, a member of the Principal Financial Group, Des Moines, IA 50392. Certain investment options may not be available in all states or U.S. commonwealths. Principal Life Insurance Company reserves the right to defer payments or transfers from Principal Life Separate Accounts as described in the group annuity contracts providing access to the Separate Accounts or as required by applicable law. Such deferment will be based on factors that may include situations such as: unstable or disorderly financial markets; investment conditions which do not allow for orderly investment transactions; or investment, liquidity, and other risks inherent in real estate (such as those associated with general and local economic conditions). If you elect to allocate funds to a Separate Account, you may not be able to immediately withdraw them.

Fees and expenses are only one of several factors that participants and beneficiaries should consider when making investment decisions.  The cumulative effect of fees and expenses can substantially reduce the growth of a participant's or beneficiary's retirement account.  Participants and beneficiaries can visit the Employee Benefit Security Administration's website for an example demonstrating the long-term effect of fees and expenses.

Standard & Poor's 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of 500 widely held stocks often used as a proxy for the stock market.

Investment manager/sub-advisor means either the Investment Advisor or Sub-Advisor to the investment option or the underlying asset(s). Principal Life Insurance Company is the Investment Manager as defined by ERISA, with regard to the assets of the Separate Accounts. Principal Global Investors is a member of the Principal Financial Group.

Each index based investment option is invested in the stocks or bonds of the index it tracks. Performance of indexes reflects the unmanaged results for the market segment the selected stocks or bonds represent. There is no assurance an index based investment option will match the performance of the index tracked.

The risks associated with derivative investments include that the underlying security, interest rate, market index, or other financial asset will not move in the direction the Investment Adviser and/or Sub-Advisor anticipated, the possibility that there may be no liquid secondary market, the risk that adverse price movements in an instrument can result in a loss substantially greater than a fund's initial investment, the possibility that the counterparty may fail to perform its obligations; and the inability to close out certain hedged positions to avoid adverse tax consequences.
