Mutual Funds
For more complete information on any fund registered in your state, including fees and expenses, download or order a free prospectus and application by calling the number set forth on each website. Read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money.

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund.

The share price of a money market fund can fall below $1.00. You should not rely on or expect a money market fund's investment advisor to enter into support agreements or take other actions to maintain the fund's $1.00 share price. The credit quality of a money market fund's holdings can change rapidly in certain markets, and the default of a single holding could have an adverse impact on the funds' share price.  A money market fund's share price can also be negatively affected during periods of high redemption pressures and/or illiquid markets. The actions of a few large investors in one class of shares of a money market fund may have a significant adverse effect on the share prices of all classes of shares of the fund. See the prospectus for specific details regarding each fund’s risk profile.
