The fund offers New York investors triple-tax-free income. It focuses on long-term securities that provide high yields and assets are concentrated in investment-grade municipal bonds to help reduce credit risk. The fund is expected to provide higher income than the T. Rowe Price New York Tax-Free Money Fund, with more share price volatility.
Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. There is also a chance that one of the fund's holdings will have its credit rating downgraded or will default. The fund is less diversified than one investing nationally.
