The Cash Reserves Fund offers a relatively secure, liquid investment that seeks to provide the highest possible income available from low-risk, short-term securities. Since it invests in very short-term securities, the fund has less exposure to interest rate risk and to principal loss than short-term bond funds, which may offer higher yields.
You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. Beginning October 14, 2016, the Fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the Funds liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Funds sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.
