Standard Performance


The value of some asset-backed securities may be particularly sensitive to changes in prevailing interest rates, and although the securities are generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee and/or insurance, there is no assurance that private guarantors or insurers will meet their obligations.

You could lose money by investing in the Fund.  Because the share price of the Fund will fluctuate, when you sell your shares, they may be worth more or less than what you originally paid for them.  The Fund may impose a fee upon sale of your shares.  An investment in the Fund is not a bank account and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company or any other government agency.  The Fund’s sponsor is not required to reimburse the Fund for losses, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time, including during periods of market stress.

Although not contractually obligated to do so, the adviser and/or certain fund service providers waived all or a portion of their fees or reimbursed the fund for certain operating expenses. These voluntary waivers and reimbursements may be modified or terminated at any time; accordingly, the fund's expenses may vary (i.e., increase or decrease) during the fund's fiscal year. These waivers increase income to the fund and result in a higher return to investors.

Total return represents the change in value of an investment after reinvesting all income and capital gains.

Yield quotations more closely reflect the current earnings of the fund than the total return quotation.

Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative.

Institutional money markets funds will value their individual portfolio securities with remaining maturities of 60 days or less using its amortized cost price when such price is approximately the same (as determined by policies adopted by each institutional money market fund’s board) as its fair market price (shadow price). If a security’s shadow price is not approximately the same as its amortized cost price, the institutional money market fund will generally use the shadow price to value that security. As an institutional money market fund’s transactional net asset value (NAV) may have certain securities valued at amortized cost and other securities with remaining maturities greater than 60 days valued at their shadow price, it may differ from its shadow NAV for which all securities are valued based on shadow prices.

Ratings are based on an evaluation of several factors, including credit quality, diversification and maturity of assets in the portfolio, as well as management strength and operational capabilities. Ratings are subject to change and do not remove market risk.

A money market fund rated AAAm by Standard & Poor’s is granted after evaluating a number of factors, including credit quality, market price, exposure and management. Fitch’s money market fund ratings are an assessment of a money market fund’s capacity to preserve principal and provide liquidity through limiting credit, market and liquidity risk.

Prior to April 2, 2024, Rule 2a-7 required that money market funds maintain at least 10% daily liquidity assets and at least 30% weekly liquidity assets. Effective April 2, 2024, the daily and weekly liquid assets thresholds increased to 25% and 50%, respectively. Both requirements are “point of purchase” requirements. Thus, it is possible that money market funds may, at any given time, have liquidity percentages reflecting less than the daily and weekly liquidity asset thresholds. In such circumstances, the portfolio manager will be required to purchase securities to meet the requisite liquidity thresholds prior to purchasing longer-dated securities. Additionally, the SEC requirements for what may be defined as “daily” and “weekly” differs from the standard maturities used in calculating the “Effective Maturity Schedule.” Therefore, the percentages in the 2a-7 Liquidity table will generally not equal the amounts shown in the “Effective Maturity Schedule.”

The fund is a managed portfolio and its holdings are subject to change. Holdings percentages are based on net assets at the close of business on the date above, and may not necessarily reflect adjustments that are routinely made when presenting net assets for formal financial statement purposes.

Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk.
