Important Risk Considerations

Although the fund seeks to maintain a stable $1.00 NAV, it may not achieve its objective, and you could lose money on your investment in the fund. A major increase in interest rates or a decline in the credit quality of an issuer or entity providing credit support, an inactive trading market for money market instruments, or adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical, or other conditions could cause the fund's share price to decrease to below $1.00.

Events that affect the banking or related industries may have a significant adverse effect on the fund.

Investments in foreign markets can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical, or other conditions.

The fund's performance could be more volatile than the performance of more diversified funds.

Please see the prospectus for further information on these and other risk considerations.
