​Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results and investment returns, and principal value of the Fund will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance quoted. Visit principaletfs.com for current month-end performance.

Solely Small Cap

Pure small-capitalization exposure offers access to small company innovation and growth potential.

Investment Strategy What's This?

The investment seeks investment results that closely correspond, before expenses, to the performance of the Nasdaq U.S. Small Cap Select Leaders Index. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies that compose the index. The index is designed to provide exposure to equity securities (including growth and value stock) of U.S. small-capitalization companies within the Nasdaq US Small Cap Index that exhibit potential for high degrees of sustainable shareholder yield, pricing power and strong momentum, while adjusting for liquidity and quality as determined by a quantitative model.

Premium/Discount to NAV What's This?

Sorry, but there is no data available for this quarter.

This information shows differences between the per share net asset value (NAV) of the Fund and the market trading price of shares. For these purposes, the market price is the midpoint of the highest bid and lowest offer for Fund shares as of close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. Timing discrepancies may exist between NAV and closing price. Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices.​

* Inception date: What's This?

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, Principal Management Corporation has contractually agreed to limit the investment option's expenses. Differences also may be due to Principal Management Corporation's decision to pay (through the same dates) certain expenses that would normally be payable by the fund. Returns displayed are based on net total investment expense.

Morningstar percentile rankings are based on total returns and do not reflect the inclusion of sales charges. If sales charges were reflected, rankings could be lower.

Risk and return statistical data is calculated by Morningstar, Inc. Excess Return is calculated by Principal Life Insurance Company.

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.

The Principal U.S. Small-Cap Index ETF (PSC) invests solely in small-cap stocks as defined by Nasdaq's U.S. Small Cap Universe.

Relative to the S&P 600 Index, the ETF's underlying index is a true small-cap index. The rules-based methodology in the construction of the Nasdaq U.S. Small Cap Select Leaders Index℠ is clearly laid out, whereas the S&P index methodology has more room for subjectivity and discretionary stock selection. Also relative to the Russell 2000® Index, the ETF seeks to improve quality and liquidity by eliminating thinly traded, volatile, and financially vulnerable micro-cap securities.

The result is an ability to rank companies by more than size alone. This offers a solution designed to help deliver a combination of momentum, quality growth, and value.
