Core Plus Bond

Our core capabilities are built on a foundation more than 30 years in the making—we began managing core plus bond fixed income strategies in 1975.  

The investment and risk management processes of Principal Global Fixed Income’s core capabilities are the basis for many of our other fixed income strategies. Rooted in our deep fundamental, proprietary research, our core capabilities offer reliable, customizable solutions to meet your investment goals.


The Core Plus Bond strategy invests in a broad array of fixed income sectors and securities, and has an average portfolio credit rating ranging from A to AA. Investments are made primarily in U.S. dollar-denominated fixed income securities with stable to improving credit profiles that offer strong risk-return tradeoff potential.

The Core Plus Long Term strategy seeks to provide a high level of current income consistent with the preservation of capital by primarily investing in a diversified pool of fixed income securities.

The Short Term Income strategy invests primarily in high quality short-term fixed income securities that are deemed to be investment grade at the time of purchase, seeking to deliver a high level of current income consistent with the stability of capital.
