Investment Approach

The Fund is a money market fund that seeks to maintain a stable price of $1.00 per share. The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of high-quality municipal money market instruments. The Fund is a "feeder fund" that invests in securities through an underlying "master fund."

Under normal circumstances, this Master Fund may invest only up to 20% of its net assets in municipal securities that pay interest that is an item of tax preference for purposes of the alternative minimum tax ("AMT"); therefore, even though income generated by this Master Fund may be tax exempt from federal income tax under normal circumstances, a portion of this income may be subject to AMT.
