    Investment approach
    The investment seeks to provide long-term total return (after fund fees and expenses) in excess of inflation. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in real assets and real asset companies. It invests in real assets and real asset companies directly, and indirectly through other entities, including private institutional investment funds that pursue these strategies. It is non-diversified.
    Disclosures
    The fund is subject to annual expenses including management fees, distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees, interest payments on borrowed funds, acquired funds fees, and other expenses. In addition, a sales load may be charged, depending on the share class selected and the amount invested. These fees and expenses are reflected in the expense ratios shown.
    Investing in the Fund is speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the risks associated with leverage and the risk of a substantial loss of investment. Real estate investment options, such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS), are subject to risks associated with credit, liquidity, interest rate fluctuation, adverse general and local economic conditions, and decreases in real estate values and occupancy rates. Investments in companies involved in agriculture, infrastructure, natural resources and energy can be significantly affected by government policies, regulations, interest costs, surplus capacity, weather conditions, and natural disasters. Investing in derivatives entails specific risks relating to liquidity, leverage, and credit, which may reduce returns and/or increase volatility. The use of leverage increases investment exposure and has the potential to magnify losses. International and global investing involves greater risks such as currency fluctuations, political/social instability and differing accounting standards. Risk is magnified in emerging markets, which may lack established legal, political, business or social structures to support securities markets. Fixed-income investments are subject to interest rate risk; as interest rates rise their value will decline. Floating rate debt instruments are subject to credit risk, interest rate risk, and impaired collateral risk, which means that the value of the collateral used to secure a loan held by the fund could decline over the course of the loan. Lower-rated securities are subject to additional credit and default risks. Due to the inherent uncertainty and subjectivity of determining the fair value of investments that do not have a readily available market value, the fair value of the Fund's private investments may differ significantly from the values that would have been used had a readily available market value existed and may differ materially from the amounts the Fund may realize on any disposition of such investments. Asset allocation and diversification do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
    The holdings listed do not constitute a recommendation to purchase or sell a particular security. Cash and/or derivative positions that are not part of the core investment strategy will not be reflected in the top holdings list.
    Infrastructure companies may be subject to a variety of factors that may adversely affect their business, including high interest costs, high leverage, regulation costs, economic slowdown, surplus capacity, increased competition, lack of fuel availability, and energy conservation policies.
    NOT FDIC INSURED - MAY LOSE VALUE - NO BANK GUARANTEE
    Principal Real Asset Fund is a closed-end investment company that continuously offers its shares. Investors in a closed-end fund do not have the right to redeem their shares on a daily basis at a price based on NAV per share. There is no secondary market for the Shares, and the Fund does not expect a secondary market will develop. You may not be able to sell your Shares when and/or in the amount that you desire.
    The Fund is structured as an interval fund, which means it conducts quarterly repurchase offers of no less than 5% of the Fund's outstanding shares at net asset value ("NAV"). Investors should not rely on any expectation of repurchase offers being made in excess of 5%.
    Investors should consider the Fund's shares illiquid. The ability of investors to sell shares to access their invested capital is very limited.
    The distribution rate is calculated by annualizing the most recent quarterly distribution per share and dividing by the NAV as of the reporting date. The Fund's distribution policy is to make quarterly distributions to shareholders. The level of quarterly distributions (including any return of capital) is not fixed. The Fund's distribution amounts are determined based on the cash distributions received from the underlying investments less applicable expenses. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. A portion of the distributions consist of a return of capital based on the character of the distributions received from the underlying holdings. If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the Fund provides a Section 19(a) notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time. These estimates may not match the final tax characterization (for the full year's distributions) contained in shareholders' 1099- DIV forms after the end of the year. There is no assurance that the Company will continue to declare distributions or that they will continue at these rates.
    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.
    Performance assumes reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains.

    The Morningstar Medalist Rating™ is the summary expression of Morningstar’s forward-looking analysis of investment strategies as offered via specific vehicles using a rating scale of Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, and Negative. The Medalist Ratings indicate which investments Morningstar believes are likely to outperform a relevant index or peer group average on a risk-adjusted basis over time. Investment products are evaluated on three key pillars (People, Parent, and Process) which, when coupled with a fee assessment, forms the basis for Morningstar’s conviction in those products’ investment merits and determines the Medalist Rating they’re assigned. Pillar ratings take the form of Low, Below Average, Average, Above Average, and High. Pillars may be evaluated via an analyst’s qualitative assessment (either directly to a vehicle the analyst covers or indirectly when the pillar ratings of a covered vehicle are mapped to a related uncovered vehicle) or using algorithmic techniques. Vehicles are sorted by their expected performance into rating groups defined by their Morningstar Category and their active or passive status. When analysts directly cover a vehicle, they assign the three pillar ratings based on their qualitative assessment, subject to the oversight of the Analyst Rating Committee, and monitor and reevaluate them at least every 14 months. When the vehicles are covered either indirectly by analysts or by algorithm, the ratings are assigned monthly. For more detailed information about these ratings, including their methodology, please go to https://shareholders.morningstar.com/investor-relations/governance/Compliance--Disclosure/default.aspx.
    The Morningstar Medalist Ratings are not statements of fact, nor are they credit or risk ratings. The Morningstar Medalist Rating (i) should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating an investment product, (ii) involves unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what was expected, (iii) are not guaranteed to be based on complete or accurate assumptions or models when determined algorithmically, (iv) involve the risk that the return target will not be met due to such things as unforeseen changes in management, technology, economic development, interest rate development, operating and/or material costs, competitive pressure, supervisory law, exchange rate, tax rates, exchange rate changes, and/or changes in political and social conditions, and (v) should not be considered an offer or solicitation to buy or sell the investment product. A change in the fundamental factors underlying the Morningstar Medalist Rating can mean that the rating is subsequently no longer accurate.
    The Analyst-Driven % data point displays the weighted percentage of a vehicle’s pillar ratings assigned directly or indirectly by analysts.
    The Data Coverage % data point is a summary metric describing the level of data completeness used to generate the overall rating.
