Footnotes

1. Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 limits the credit risk that money market mutual funds may bear by restricting their investments to "eligible" securities. An eligible security must carry one of the two highest ratings ("1" or "2") for short-term obligations from at least two of the nationally recognized statistical ratings agencies. A tier-1 security is an eligible security rated "1" by at least two of the rating agencies; a tier-2 security is an eligible security that is not a tier-1 security. The sum of tier-1 and tier-2 securities will not add up to the total due to ineligible securities.
