1. The Principal Global Investors Funds (the Unit Trust) consists of sub-funds (the Funds) investing in equities, fixed income securities and/or debt securities.
2. Some of the Funds may have an exposure to emerging markets. Investments in emerging market economies involves certain considerations which are not normally involved in investments in more developed markets. Such considerations may include, but are not limited to, being subject to higher liquidity and volatility risks, and additional legal, regulatory, political, expropriation, repatriation and foreign exchange risks. As such, these Funds may be considered speculative and carry significant risk.
3. In respect of the Funds which have income units, the Manager may, at its discretion, pay the dividends from gross income while charging all or part of these Funds fees and expenses to capital. It will result in an increase in distributable income for the payment of dividends by these Funds, and the dividends are effectively paid out of capital of these Funds. Payment of dividends effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an Unitholders original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Payment of dividends effectively out of capital of these Funds may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit of these Funds.
4. The investment decision is yours but you should not invest in the Funds unless the intermediary who sells this product to you has advised you that this product is suitable for you and has explained why, including how investing in it would be consistent with your investment objectives.
