The investment seeks a total return consisting of long-term growth of capital and current income. The fund operates as a "target date fund." It invests in underlying Principal Funds, Inc.

Within 10 to 15 years after its target year, the fund's underlying fund allocation is expected to match that of the Principal LifeTime Strategic Income Fund.
