The fund's investment adviser normally will invest assets entirely in securities whose interests is not subject to (or not a specific preference item for purposes of) the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT), such that, normally, distributions of annual interest income also are exempt from the AMT. However, in certain circumstances to pursue the fund's investment objective, the Adviser may invest the fund's assets in securities that may be subject to AMT. In such circumstances, interest from the fund's investments may be subject to the AMT.

An investment in money market funds is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although money market funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in these funds.

Money market ratings are an assessment of the safety of invested principal and the ability to maintain a stable market value of the fund's shares. 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.

Fitch's money market fund ratings are an assessment of the safety of invested principal and the ability to maintain a stable value of the fund's shares. Money market funds rated Aaa by Moody's are judged to be of an investment quality similar to Aaa-rated fixed income obligations, that is, they are judged to be of the best quality.

Ratings are subject to change and do not remove market risk.

* This fund is on the National Association of Insurance Commissioner's list as a Class 1 listing. This designation denotes that the fund meets certain quality and pricing guidelines such as: a rating of A or better by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO), maintain a constant NAV $1.00 at all times, allow a maximum 7 day redemption of proceeds, invest 95% in US government securities or securities rated in the highest short-term rating category by an NRSRO, or unrated securities determined by the fund's board to be of comparable quality or other registered money market funds or collateralized repurchase agreements with the remaining 5% in Second Tier securities from Rule 2a-7. This is subject to an annual review.

In response to unusual circumstances, such as adverse market, economic or other conditions (for example, to help avoid potential losses or during periods when there is a shortage of appropriate tax-exempt securities), the fund may temporarily depart from its principal investment strategies by holding cash or investing its assets in taxable securities (including, for example, securities subject to the AMT) which may cause the Fund to distribute taxable income to investors.

Income may be subject to state and local taxes.
The fund is a managed portfolio and its holdings are subject to change.
