For the period from October 1, 2015 through September 29, 2016, and on October 13, 2016, a portion of the dividend factor included excess capital distributions. The excess capital amount is disclosed through monthly 19(a) notices which began in early November 2015 and will conclude in October 2016. Any excess capital amount is not reflected in the yield or average annual total return of the fund, however is considered taxable dividend income.
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 the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the fund's liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The fund's sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the fund at any time.
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.

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.

Rule 2a-7 requires that money market funds maintain a 10% daily liquidity bucket and a 30% weekly liquidity bucket. Both requirements are 'point of purchase' requirements. Thus, it is permissible and probable that money market funds may, at any given time, have liquidity percentages reflecting less than the 10% and 30% thresholds. In such circumstances, the portfolio manager will be required to purchase securities to fill the requisite liquidity bucket 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.'
