Analyst Note

On Dec. 20, 2023, Principal announced that two new sleeves will be added to the Diversified Real Asset fund and collective investment trust sometime during 2024's first quarter. These impending additions do not alter the strategy or underlying investment philosophy. The team will add one sleeve dedicated to smaller tactical purchases via passive exchange-traded funds. This sleeve will be responsible for the tactical moves previously made within the existing liquidity sleeve for better transparency. The second sleeve will introduce a passive global natural-resources exposure that complements the existing natural-resources sleeve. Principal's passive equities team, reporting to Diversified Real Asset's lead portfolio manager May Tong, will manage the exposure. It is expected to receive 2% to 8% of portfolio assets, though the overall natural-resources target allocation remains at 15%. These impending changes do not affect the strategy's Average People and Process Pillar ratings.
