About the U.S. Government Securities Ultra-Short Bond Fund

Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in United States Treasury debt securities and obligations of agencies and instrumentalities of the United States, including repurchase agreements collateralized with such securities. The fund’s dollar-weighted average effective maturity will be two years or less.
