Principal Global Diversified Income Fund

Combining multiple distinctive investment strategies and strategically allocating among them to take advantage of market and economic trends, the Principal Global Diversified Income Fund's innovative blending of fixed-income and equity asset classes is designed to provide possible higher yield potential than conventional investment-grade bond funds and the potential to reduce overall volatility compared to investment in individual asset classes. See the Global Diversified Income Fund Financial Professional Guide under Analytics.

Small- and Mid-Cap Equities: Why Dividends Can Make a Difference

In this unpredictable environment, investors need every edge they can get. That's why dividend strategies – which offer the potential for income streams, capital appreciation, and historically lower volatility than non-dividend-paying stocks – are attracting more attention. And small- and mid-cap companies may offer even greater dividend opportunities than their large-cap counterparts. Seethe Small-MidCap Dividend Income Fund Client Brochure under Client Materials.
