Fund Goal and Approach
The fund seeks to maximize current income exempt from federal and California state income taxes, to the extent consistent with the preservation of capital and the maintenance of liquidity.As a money market fund, the fund is subject to the maturity, quality, liquidity and diversification requirements of Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, which are designed to help money market funds maintain a stable share price of $1.00.
To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests substantially all of its net assets in short-term, high quality municipal obligations that provide income exempt from federal and California state income taxes. The fund also may invest in high quality, short-term structured notes, which are derivative instruments whose value is tied to underlying municipal obligations.
Although the fund seeks to provide income exempt from federal and California state income taxes, the fund may invest temporarily in high quality, taxable money market instruments and/or municipal obligations that pay income exempt only from federal income tax, including when the portfolio manager believes acceptable California municipal obligations are not available for investment. During such periods, the fund may not achieve its investment objective. In addition, income from some of the fund's holdings may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax.
An investment in the fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the 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.
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.
