Fund Description

The Fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the benchmark index. The High Yield Index is comprised of publicly traded municipal bonds that cover the U.S. dollar denominated high yield long-term tax-exempt bond market. By the end of the Fund’s index transition period (as described below), the High Yield Index is expected to track the high yield municipal bond market with an ultimate weight of 70% in non-investment grade municipal bonds, 25% in triple-B rated investment grade municipal bonds and 5% in single-A rated investment grade municipal bonds (in accordance with the High Yield Index provider’s methodology). This 80% investment policy is non-fundamental and may be changed without shareholder approval upon 60 days' prior written notice to shareholders.
The Fund has adopted a fundamental investment policy to invest at least 80% of its assets in municipal securities. Such policy cannot be changed without a shareholder vote. For purposes of this policy, the term “assets” means net assets plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes. This percentage limitation applies at the time of the investment.
The Fund, using a “passive” or indexing investment approach, attempts to approximate the investment performance of the High Yield Index. Unlike many investment companies that try to “beat” the performance of a benchmark index, the Fund does not try to “beat” the High Yield Index and does not take temporary defensive positions that are inconsistent with its investment objective of seeking to replicate the High Yield Index. Because of the practical difficulties and expense of purchasing all of the securities in the High Yield Index, the Fund does not purchase all of the securities in the High Yield Index. Instead, the Adviser utilizes a “sampling” methodology in seeking to achieve the Fund’s objective. As such, the Fund may purchase a subset of the bonds in the High Yield Index in an effort to hold a portfolio of bonds with generally the same risk and return characteristics of the High Yield Index.
The Fund may concentrate its investments in a particular industry or group of industries to the extent that the High Yield Index concentrates in an industry or group of industries. As of April 30, 2022, the High Yield Index had 21,443 component securities and each of the industrial development and special tax (i.e., revenue bonds backed by a special tax) sectors represented a significant portion of the High Yield Index. The High Yield Index is rebalanced on the last calendar day of the month.
Prior to the selection of the High Yield Index, the Fund tracked the Bloomberg Municipal Custom High Yield Composite Index (the “Prior High Yield Index”). The Fund began tracking the High Yield Index on March 1, 2022. The High Yield Index is an interim index that gradually increases exposure to securities based on their weightings in the ICE Broad High Yield Crossover Municipal Index (the "Final High Yield Index") while proportionally reducing exposure to certain component securities of the Prior High Yield Index. The Fund is expected to begin tracking the Final High Yield Index on December 1, 2022.
