You could lose money by investing in the fund. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. 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.
Under the investment advisory contract, the Adviser is required to reimburse/waive the amount, limited to the amount of the management fee, by which the Fund’s aggregate annual operating expenses, including the management fee, but excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, expenses of registering and qualifying the Fund and its shares under federal and state laws, expenses of withholding taxes and extraordinary expenses exceed (after voluntary waivers and reimbursements) 0.45% of the Fund’s IS class average daily net assets. The Adviser and certain of its affiliates on their own initiative have agreed to waive certain amounts of their respective fees and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, extraordinary expenses, interest expense and proxy related expenses, if any) paid by the Fund’s IS class (after the voluntary waivers and/or reimbursements) will not exceed 0.20% (the “Fee Limit”) up to but not including the later of (the “Termination Date”): (a) October 1, 2021; or (b) the date of the Fund’s next effective Prospectus. While the Adviser and its affiliates currently do not anticipate terminating or increasing these arrangements prior to the Termination Date, these arrangements may only be terminated or the Fee Limit increased prior to the Termination Date with the agreement of the Trustees.

Rule 2a-7 requires that money market funds maintain at least a 10% daily liquidity assets and at least 30% weekly liquidity assets. 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 10% and 30% 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.
It is anticipated that the fund will distribute a de minimis long term gain during the month of December 2017.
