See how the Principal Preferred Securities Fund brings value to our broader asset allocation solutions:

1 Fixed-income investment options are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. Risks associated with preferred securities differ from risks inherent with other investments. In particular, in the event of bankruptcy, a company's preferred securities are senior to common stock but subordinated to all other types of corporate debt.

Asset allocation/diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.
