The Investment Adviser has agreed to reduce or limit “Other Expenses” (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, administration fees, transfer agency fees and expenses, taxes, interest, brokerage fees, expenses of shareholder meetings, litigation and indemnification, and extraordinary expenses) to 0.014% of the Fund’s average daily net assets. This arrangement will remain in effect through at least March 29, 2024, and prior to such date the Investment Adviser may not terminate the arrangement without the approval of the Board of Trustees.
Expense Example
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in Administration Shares of the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your Administration Shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same  (except that the Example incorporates any applicable fee waiver and/or expense limitation arrangements for only the first year). Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:
 
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing in securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”), obligations of banks (which may exceed 25% of its total assets), commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, and repurchase
1

agreements. The Fund may also invest in U.S. dollar-denominated obligations of foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments. The Fund may, but does not currently intend to, invest in Eurodollar certificates of deposit. The Fund may not invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of any one foreign government.
The Fund intends to be an “institutional money market fund” under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”). Although the Fund is a money market fund, the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate with changes in the values of its portfolio securities.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity, diversification and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Because the share price of the Fund will fluctuate, when you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you originally paid for them. The Fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the Fund’s liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Banking Industry Risk. An adverse development in the banking industry (domestic or foreign) may affect the value of the Fund’s investments more than if the Fund were not invested to such a degree in the banking industry. Banks may be particularly susceptible to certain economic factors such as interest rate changes, adverse developments in the real estate market, fiscal, regulatory and monetary policy and general economic cycles.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund, or a bank or other financial institution that has entered into a repurchase agreement with the Fund, may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Floating NAV Risk. The Fund does not maintain a stable NAV per share. The value of the Fund’s shares will be calculated to four decimal places and will fluctuate with changes in the values of the Fund’s portfolio securities. When you sell your shares, they may be worth more or less than what you originally paid for them. This may result in a capital gain or loss.
Foreign Risk. Foreign securities may be subject to risk of loss because of more or less foreign government regulation; less public information; less stringent investor protections; less stringent accounting, corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure standards; and less economic, political and social stability in the countries in which the Fund invests. The imposition of sanctions, confiscations, trade restrictions (including tariffs) and other government restrictions by the United States and other governments, or from problems in share registration, settlement or custody, may also result in losses. In addition, the Fund will be subject to the risk that an issuer of foreign sovereign debt or the government authorities that control the repayment of the debt may be unable or unwilling to repay the principal or interest when due.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or minimize the volatility of the Fund’s NAV per share and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a
2

lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can increase the volatility of the Fund’s NAV per share. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of  individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Municipal Securities Risk. Municipal securities are subject to credit/default risk, interest rate risk and certain additional risks. The Fund may be more sensitive to adverse economic, business or political developments if it invests a substantial portion of its assets in the debt securities of similar projects (such as those relating to education, health care, housing, transportation, and utilities), industrial development bonds, or in particular types of municipal securities (such as general obligation bonds, private activity bonds and moral obligation bonds). The Fund may also invest in municipal securities indirectly (including by investing in tender option bonds). While interest earned on municipal securities is generally not subject to federal tax, any interest earned on taxable municipal securities is fully taxable at the federal level and may be subject to tax at the state level.
U.S. Government Securities Risk. The U.S. government may not provide financial support to U.S. government agencies, instrumentalities or sponsored enterprises if it is not obligated to do so by law. Certain U.S. Government Securities , including securities issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (“Fannie Mae”), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) and the Federal Home Loan Banks, are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury and, therefore, are not backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some U.S. Government Securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including any legal right to support from the U.S. Treasury. It is possible that issuers of U.S. Government Securities will not have the funds to meet their payment obligations in the future.

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Treasury Obligations, which include securities issued or guaran- teed by the U.S. Treasury where the payment of principal and interest is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government (“U.S. Treasury Obligations”), and repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. Treasury Obligations.
The Fund intends to be a “government money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“Investment Company Act”). “Government money market funds” are money market funds that invest at least 99.5% of their total assets in cash, securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”), and/or repurchase agreements that are collateralized fully by
9

cash or U.S. Government Securities. “Government money market funds” are exempt from requirements that permit money market funds to impose a “liquidity fee” and/or “redemption gate” that temporarily restricts redemptions. As a “government money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.

The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective.

In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.

Expense Example
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in Administration Shares of the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your Administration Shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same  (except that the Example incorporates any applicable fee waiver and/or expense limitation arrangements for only the first year). Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:
 
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years
Administration Shares
$46
$144
$252
$567

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Treasury Obligations, which include securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury where the payment of principal and interest is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government (“U.S. Treasury Obligations”), the interest from which is generally exempt from state income taxation.
The Fund intends to be a “government money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“Investment Company Act”). “Government money market funds” are money market funds that invest at least 99.5% of their total assets in cash and securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”). Although “government money market funds” may also invest in repurchase agreements that are collateralized fully by cash or U.S. Government Securities, the Fund may not invest in
12

repurchase agreements. “Government money market funds” are exempt from requirements that permit money market funds to impose a “liquidity fee” and/or “redemption gate” that temporarily restricts redemptions. As a “government money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in “government securities,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“Investment Company Act”), and repurchase agreements collateralized by such securities. “Government securities” generally are securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”).
The Fund intends to be a “government money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act. “Government money market funds” are money market funds that invest at least 99.5% of their total assets in cash, U.S. Government Securities, and/or repurchase agreements that are collateralized fully by cash or U.S. Government Securities. “Government money market funds” are exempt from requirements that permit money market funds to impose a “liquidity fee” and/or “redemption gate” that temporarily restricts redemptions. As a “government money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.

Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund, or a bank or other financial institution that has entered into a repurchase agreement with the Fund, may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of  individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.
U.S. Government Securities Risk. The U.S. government may not provide financial support to U.S. government agencies, instrumentalities or sponsored enterprises if it is not obligated to do so by law. Certain U.S. Government Securities , including securities issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (“Fannie Mae”), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) and the Federal Home Loan Banks, are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury and, therefore, are not backed by the
19

full faith and credit of the United States. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some U.S. Government Securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including any legal right to support from the U.S. Treasury. It is possible that issuers of U.S. Government Securities will not have the funds to meet their payment obligations in the future.

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in “government securities,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“Investment Company Act”), the interest from which is generally exempt from state income taxation. “Government securities” generally are securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”).
The Fund intends to be a “government money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act. “Government money market funds” are money market funds that invest at least 99.5% of their total assets in cash and U.S. Government Securities. Although “government money market funds” may also invest in repurchase agreements that are collateralized fully by cash or U.S. Government Securities, the Fund may not invest in repurchase agreements. “Government money market funds” are exempt from requirements that permit money market funds to impose a “liquidity fee” and/or “redemption gate” that temporarily restricts redemptions. As a “government money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
22

Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of  individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.
U.S. Government Securities Risk. The U.S. government may not provide financial support to U.S. government agencies, instrumentalities or sponsored enterprises if it is not obligated to do so by law. Certain U.S. Government Securities , including securities issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (“Fannie Mae”), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) and the Federal Home Loan Banks, are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury and, therefore, are not backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some U.S. Government Securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including any legal right to support from the U.S. Treasury.

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing in securities issued or guaranteed by the United States or certain U.S. government agencies or instrumentalities (“U.S. Government Securities”), obligations of banks (which may exceed 25% of its total assets), commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, and repurchase agreements. The Fund may also invest in U.S. dollar-denominated obligations of foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments. The Fund may not invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of any one foreign government.
The Fund intends to be a “retail money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”). “Retail money market funds” are money market funds that have policies and procedures reasonably designed to limit all beneficial owners of the fund to natural persons. As a “retail money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity, diversification and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. The Fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the Fund’s liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Banking Industry Risk. An adverse development in the banking industry (domestic or foreign) may affect the value of the Fund’s investments more than if the Fund were not invested to such a degree in the banking industry. Banks may be particularly susceptible to certain economic factors such as interest rate changes, adverse developments in the real estate market, fiscal, regulatory and monetary policy and general economic cycles.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund, or a bank or other financial institution that has entered into a repurchase agreement with the Fund, may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Foreign Risk. Foreign securities may be subject to risk of loss because of more or less foreign government regulation; less public information; less stringent investor protections; less stringent accounting, corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure standards; and less economic, political and social stability in the countries in which the Fund invests. The imposition of sanctions, confiscations, trade restrictions (including tariffs) and other government restrictions by the United States and other governments, or from problems in share registration, settlement or custody, may also result in losses. In addition, the Fund will be subject to the risk that an issuer of foreign sovereign debt or the government authorities that control the repayment of the debt may be unable or unwilling to repay the principal or interest when due.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders (including financial intermediaries who may make investment decisions on behalf of underlying clients) purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
26

Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of  individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Municipal Securities Risk. Municipal securities are subject to credit/default risk, interest rate risk and certain additional risks. The Fund may be more sensitive to adverse economic, business or political developments if it invests a substantial portion of its assets in the debt securities of similar projects (such as those relating to education, health care, housing, transportation, and utilities), industrial development bonds, or in particular types of municipal securities (such as general obligation bonds, private activity bonds and moral obligation bonds). The Fund may also invest in municipal securities indirectly (including by investing in tender option bonds). While interest earned on municipal securities is generally not subject to federal tax, any interest earned on taxable municipal securities is fully taxable at the federal level and may be subject to tax at the state level.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.
U.S. Government Securities Risk. The U.S. government may not provide financial support to U.S. government agencies, instrumentalities or sponsored enterprises if it is not obligated to do so by law. Certain U.S. Government Securities , including securities issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (“Fannie Mae”), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) and the Federal Home Loan Banks, are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury and, therefore, are not backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. The maximum potential liability of the issuers of some U.S. Government Securities held by the Fund may greatly exceed their current resources, including any legal right to support from the U.S. Treasury. It is possible that issuers of U.S. Government Securities will not have the funds to meet their payment obligations in the future.

The Investment Adviser has agreed to reduce or limit “Other Expenses” (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, administration fees, transfer agency fees and expenses, taxes, interest, brokerage fees, expenses of shareholder meetings, litigation and indemnification, and extraordinary expenses) to 0.014% of the Fund’s average daily net assets. This arrangement will remain in effect through at least March 29, 2024, and prior to such date the Investment Adviser may not terminate the arrangement without the approval of the Board of Trustees.
Expense Example
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in Administration Shares of the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your Administration Shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same  (except that the Example incorporates any applicable fee waiver and/or expense limitation arrangements for only the first year).

Principal Strategy
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment) (“Net Assets”) in securities issued by or on behalf of states, territories and possessions of the United States and their political subdivisions, agencies, authorities and instrumentalities, and the District of Columbia, the interest

from which, if any, is in the opinion of bond counsel excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes, and generally not an item of tax preference under the federal alternative minimum tax (“AMT”). The Investment Adviser ordinarily expects 100% of the Fund’s assets will be invested directly or indirectly in municipal obligations, but the Fund may invest in short-term taxable instruments for temporary investment purposes.
The Fund intends to be a “retail money market fund,” as such term is defined in or interpreted under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”). “Retail money market funds” are money market funds that have policies and procedures reasonably designed to limit all beneficial owners of the fund to natural persons. As a “retail money market fund,” the Fund values its securities using the amortized cost method. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value (“NAV”) of $1.00 per share.
Under Rule 2a-7, the Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio quality, maturity, diversification and liquidity.
Principal Risks of the Fund
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. The Fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the Fund’s liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s 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. The Fund should not be relied upon as a complete investment program. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund's principal risks are presented below in alphabetical order, and not in the order of importance or potential exposure.
Credit/Default Risk. An issuer or guarantor of a security held by the Fund may default on its obligation to pay interest and repay principal or default on any other obligation. This also includes the risk of default on foreign letters of credit, guarantees or insurance policies that back municipal securities. Additionally, the credit quality of securities may deteriorate rapidly, which may impair the Fund’s liquidity and cause significant deterioration in NAV.
Geographic and Sector Risk. If the Fund invests a significant portion of its total assets in certain issuers within the same state, geographic region or economic sector, an adverse economic, business, political, environmental or other development affecting that state, region or sector may affect the value of the Fund’s investments more than if its investments were not so focused.
Interest Rate Risk. When interest rates increase, the Fund’s yield will tend to be lower than prevailing market rates, and the market value of its investments will generally decline. The Fund may face a heightened level of interest rate risk in connection with the type and extent of certain monetary policy changes made by the Federal Reserve, such as target interest rate changes. Changing interest rates may have unpredictable effects on the markets, may result in heightened market volatility and may detract from Fund performance. A low interest rate environment poses additional risks to the Fund, because low yields on the Fund’s portfolio holdings may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s ability to provide a positive yield to its shareholders, pay expenses out of current income, or, at times, maintain a stable $1.00 share price and/or achieve its investment objective. Fluctuations in interest rates may also affect the liquidity of the Fund’s investments. A sudden or unpredictable increase in interest rates may cause volatility in the market and may decrease the liquidity of the Fund's investments, which would make it harder for the Fund to sell its investments at an advantageous time.
Large Shareholder Transactions Risk. The Fund may experience adverse effects when certain large shareholders (including financial intermediaries who may make investment decisions on behalf of underlying clients) purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund. Such large shareholder redemptions, which may occur rapidly or unexpectedly, may cause the Fund to sell portfolio securities at times when it would not otherwise do so, which may negatively impact the  Fund's   NAV  and liquidity. Similarly, large Fund share purchases may adversely affect the  Fund's  performance to the extent that the Fund is delayed in investing new cash or otherwise maintains a larger cash position than it ordinarily would. These transactions may also accelerate the realization of taxable income to shareholders if such sales of investments resulted in gains, and may also increase transaction costs. In addition, a large redemption could result in the  Fund's  current expenses being allocated over a smaller asset base, leading to an increase in the  Fund's  expense ratio.
Liquidity Risk. The Fund may make investments that are illiquid or that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Illiquid investments may be more difficult to value. The liquidity of portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting issuers or guarantors, such as a credit rating downgrade, or due to general market conditions or a lack of willing buyers. An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions, or selling such positions at an unfavorable time and/or under unfavorable conditions, can adversely affect the Fund’s ability to maintain a stable $1.00 share price. Liquidity risk may also refer to the risk that the Fund will not be able to pay redemption proceeds within the allowable time period because of unusual market conditions, declining prices of the securities sold, an unusually high volume of redemption requests, or other reasons. Liquidity risk may be the result of, among other things, the reduced number and capacity of traditional market participants to make a market in fixed income securities or the lack of an active market. The potential for liquidity risk may be magnified by a rising interest rate environment or other circumstances where investor redemptions from money market and other fixed income mutual funds may be higher than normal, potentially causing increased supply in the market due to selling activity.
30

Market Risk. The value of the securities in which the Fund invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of  individual companies, particular sectors or governments and/or general economic conditions throughout the world due to increasingly interconnected global economies and financial markets. Events such as war, military conflict, acts of terrorism, social unrest, natural disasters, recessions, inflation, rapid interest rate changes, supply chain disruptions, sanctions, the spread of infectious illness or other public health threats could also significantly impact the Fund and its investments.
Municipal Securities Risk. Municipal securities are subject to credit/default risk, interest rate risk and certain additional risks. The Fund may be more sensitive to adverse economic, business or political developments if it invests a substantial portion of its assets in the debt securities of similar projects (such as those relating to education, health care, housing, transportation, and utilities), industrial development bonds, or in particular types of municipal securities (such as general obligation bonds, private activity bonds and moral obligation bonds). The Fund may also invest in municipal securities indirectly (including by investing in tender option bonds). While interest earned on municipal securities is generally not subject to federal tax, any interest earned on taxable municipal securities is fully taxable at the federal level and may be subject to tax at the state level.
Stable NAV Risk. The Fund may not be able to maintain a stable $1.00 share price at all times. If any money market fund that intends to maintain a stable NAV fails to do so (or if there is a perceived threat of such a failure), other such money market funds, including the Fund, could be subject to increased redemption activity, which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV. Shareholders of the Fund should not rely on or expect the Investment Adviser or an affiliate to purchase distressed assets from the Fund, make capital infusions into the Fund, enter into capital support agreements with the Fund or take other actions to help the Fund maintain a stable $1.00 share price.
Tax Risk. Future legislative or administrative changes or court decisions may materially affect the value of the Fund’s portfolio holdings and/or the ability of the Fund to pay federal tax-exempt dividends. The Fund would not be a suitable investment within IRAs, other tax-exempt or tax-deferred accounts, or for investors who are not sensitive to the federal tax consequences of their investments.

Investment Management Approach
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVEs
The Funds seek to maximize current income to the extent consistent with the preservation of capital and the maintenance of liquidity by investing exclusively in high quality money market instruments.
The investment objective of each Fund (except as provided below) cannot be changed without approval of a majority of the outstanding shares of that Fund. The investment objectives of Financial Square Federal Instruments Fund and Investor Money Market Fund may be changed without shareholder approval upon sixty days’ notice.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
Financial Square Funds—Institutional Money Market Funds
An “institutional money market fund” is a money market fund that is neither a “government money market fund” nor a “retail money market fund” (each of which is described in more detail below). An institutional money market fund is required to price its shares at a NAV reflecting market-based values of its portfolio securities (i.e., at a “floating” NAV) rounded to the fourth decimal place (e.g., $1.0000). In addition, the board of trustees of an institutional money market fund is permitted to impose a liquidity fee (of up to 2%) on redemptions from the fund or a redemption gate that temporarily suspends redemptions from the fund for up to 10 business days during a 90 day period, as described under “Shareholder Guide—How To Sell Shares—What Are The Potential Restrictions On Institutional And Retail Fund Redemptions?” below.
The Board of Trustees of the Goldman Sachs Trust (the “Board”) has approved, upon the recommendation of GSAM, the designation of each of the following Funds as an institutional money market fund under Rule 2a-7 (collectively, the “Institutional Funds”):
Prime Obligations Fund
The Prime Obligations Fund pursues its investment objective by investing in U.S. Government Securities, obligations of banks (which may exceed 25% of its assets), commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, and repurchase agreements. The Fund may also invest in U.S. dollar-denominated obligations of foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments. The Fund may, but does not currently intend to, invest in Eurodollar certificates of deposit. The Fund may not invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of any one foreign government.
Money Market Fund (Institutional)
The Money Market Fund pursues its investment objective by investing in U.S. Government Securities, obligations of banks (which may exceed 25% of its total assets), commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, and repurchase agreements. The Fund may also invest in U.S. dollar-denominated obligations of foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments. The Fund may not invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of any one foreign government.
34

Investment Management Approach
Financial Square Funds—Government Money Market Funds
A “government money market fund” is a money market fund that invests at least 99.5% of its total assets in cash, U.S. Government Securities, and/or repurchase agreements that are collateralized fully by cash or U.S. Government Securities. The Treasury Instruments Fund and Federal Instruments Fund may not invest in repurchase agreements. Government money market funds may seek to maintain a stable NAV per share of $1.00 based on the amortized cost method of valuation. Government money market funds are also exempt from the requirements relating to the imposition of liquidity fees and/or redemption gates.
The Board has approved, upon the recommendation of GSAM, the designation of each of the following Funds as a government money market fund under Rule 2a-7 (collectively, the “Government Funds”):
Treasury Obligations Fund
The Treasury Obligations Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Treasury Obligations and repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. Treasury Obligations. The Fund’s policy of limiting its investments to U.S. Treasury Obligations and related repurchase agreements is a fundamental investment restriction.
Treasury Instruments Fund
The Treasury Instruments Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Treasury Obligations, the interest from which is generally exempt from state income taxation. Shareholders will be provided with sixty days’ notice in the manner prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) before any change in the Fund’s policy to invest at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment) in the particular type of investment suggested by its name.
Treasury Solutions Fund
The Treasury Solutions Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Treasury Obligations and repurchase agreements with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York collateralized by U.S. Treasury Obligations. Shareholders will be provided with sixty days’ notice in the manner prescribed by the SEC before any change in the Fund’s policy to invest at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment) in the particular type of investment suggested by its name.
Government Fund
The Government Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Government Securities, and repurchase agreements collateralized by such securities. Shareholders will be provided with sixty days’ notice in the manner prescribed by the SEC before any change in the Fund’s policy to invest at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment) in the particular type of investment suggested by its name.
Federal Instruments Fund
The Federal Instruments Fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in U.S. Government Securities, the interest from which is generally exempt from state income taxation. Shareholders will be provided with sixty days’ notice in the manner prescribed by the SEC before any change in the Fund’s policy to invest at least 80% of its net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment) in the particular type of investment suggested by its name.
35

Investor Funds—Retail Money Market Funds
A “retail money market fund” is a money market fund that has policies and procedures reasonably designed to limit all beneficial owners of the fund to natural persons. Similar to government money market funds, retail money market funds may seek to maintain a stable NAV per share of $1.00 based on the amortized cost method of valuation. However, similar to institutional money market funds, a retail money market fund’s board of trustees is permitted to impose a liquidity fee (of up to 2%) on redemptions from the fund or a redemption gate that temporarily suspends redemptions from the fund for up to 10 business days during a 90 day period, as described under “Shareholder Guide—How To Sell Shares—What Are The Potential Restrictions On Institutional And Retail Fund Redemptions?” below.
The Board has approved, upon the recommendation of GSAM, the designation of each of the following funds as a retail money market fund under Rule 2a-7 (collectively, the “Retail Funds”):
Money Market Fund (Retail)
The Money Market Fund pursues its investment objective by investing in U.S. Government Securities, obligations of banks (which may exceed 25% of its total assets), commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, and repurchase agreements. The Fund may also invest in U.S. dollar-denominated obligations of foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments. The Fund may not invest more than 25% of its total assets in the securities of any one foreign government.
Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund (Retail)
The Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund pursues its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its Net Assets in securities issued by or on behalf of states, territories and possessions of the United States and their political subdivisions, agencies, authorities and instrumentalities, and the District of Columbia, the interest from which, if any, is in the opinion of bond counsel excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes, and generally not an item of tax preference under the AMT. The Investment Adviser ordinarily expects 100% of the Fund’s assets will be invested in municipal obligations, but the Fund may invest in short-term taxable instruments for temporary investment purposes. The Fund’s policy to invest at least 80% of its Net Assets in municipal obligations, the interest from which, if any, is in the opinion of bond counsel excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes, is a fundamental investment restriction.
All Funds
Under normal circumstances, the cash positions of the Financial Square Treasury Obligations Fund, Financial Square Treasury Instruments Fund, Financial Square Treasury Solutions Fund, Financial Square Government Fund, Financial Square Federal Instruments Fund and the Investor Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund will not exceed 20% of the Fund’s net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes (measured at the time of investment). A Fund may hold uninvested cash in lieu of appropriate money market instruments at the Fund’s custodian bank under certain circumstances, including adverse market conditions or the prevailing interest rate environment, or when the Investment Adviser believes there is an insufficient supply of appropriate money market instruments in which to invest, or in the case of unusually large cash inflows, anticipated redemptions or pending investments. A Fund may earn custodial credits or interest on these cash positions. However, these cash positions may not produce income or may produce low income. As a result, a Fund’s current yield may be adversely affected during such periods when cash is held uninvested. Cash positions may also subject a Fund to additional risks and costs, such as increased exposure to the Fund’s custodian bank and any fees imposed for large cash balances or for maintaining the Fund’s account at the custodian bank.
Goldman Sachs Money Market Team’s Investment Philosophy:
Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. (“GSAM®”) serves as investment adviser to the Funds. GSAM is referred to in the Prospectus as the “Investment Adviser.”
The Funds are managed to seek preservation of capital, daily liquidity and maximum current income. With each Fund, the Investment Adviser follows a conservative, risk-managed investment process that seeks to:
Manage credit risk
Manage interest rate risk
Manage liquidity
36

Investment Management Approach
INVESTMENT PROCESS
1.
Managing Credit Risk
The Investment Adviser’s process for managing credit risk emphasizes:
Intensive research—The Credit Department, a separate operating entity of Goldman Sachs, approves all money market fund eligible securities for the Funds. Sources for the Credit Department’s analysis include third-party inputs, such as financial statements and media sources, ratings releases and company meetings, as well as the Investment Research, Legal and Compliance departments of Goldman Sachs.
Timely updates—A Credit Department-approved list of securities is continuously communicated on a “real-time” basis to the portfolio management team via computer link.
The Result: An “approved” list of high-quality credits—The Investment Adviser’s portfolio management team uses this approved list to construct portfolios which offer the best available risk-return trade-off within the “approved” credit universe. If a security is removed from the “approved” list, the Investment Adviser may not purchase that security for a Fund, although it is not required to sell that security.
2.
Managing Interest Rate Risk
Three main steps are followed in seeking to manage interest rate risk:
Establish weighted average maturity (“WAM”) and weighted average life (“WAL”) targets—WAM (the weighted average time until the yield of a portfolio reflects any changes in the current interest rate environment) and WAL (designed to more accurately measure “spread risk”) are constantly revisited and adjusted as market conditions change. An overall strategy is developed by the Investment Adviser based on insights gained from weekly meetings with both Goldman Sachs economists and economists from outside the firm.
Implement optimum portfolio structure—Proprietary models that seek the optimum balance of risk and return, in conjunction with the Investment Adviser’s analysis of factors such as market events, short-term interest rates and each Fund’s asset volatility, are used to identify the most effective portfolio structure.
Conduct rigorous analysis of new securities—The Investment Adviser’s five-step process includes legal, credit, historical index and liquidity analysis, as well as price stress testing to determine the suitability of potential investments for the Funds.
3.
Managing Liquidity
Factors that the Investment Adviser’s portfolio managers continuously monitor and that affect liquidity of a money market portfolio include:
Each Fund’s investors and other factors that influence the asset volatility of the Funds;
Technical events that influence the trading range of federal funds and other short-term fixed income markets; and
Bid-ask spreads associated with securities in the portfolios.
References in the Prospectus to a Fund’s benchmark are for informational purposes only, and unless otherwise noted are not an indication of how a particular Fund is managed.
Additional Fund Characteristics and Restrictions
The Funds: Each Institutional Fund will price its shares at a floating NAV, rounded to the fourth decimal place (e.g., $1.0000).
Each Government and Retail Fund will use the amortized cost method of valuation, as permitted by Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act, to seek to maintain a stable NAV of $1.00 per share. Under Rule 2a-7, each Fund may invest only in U.S. dollar-denominated securities that are either (i) U.S. Government Securities, (ii) issued by other investment companies that are money market funds, or (iii) determined by the Investment Adviser to present minimal credit risks to the Fund. Permissible investments must also meet certain risk-limiting conditions relating to portfolio maturity, diversification, and liquidity. These operating policies may be more restrictive than the fundamental policies set forth in the Statement of Additional Information (the “SAI”). In order to maintain a rating from a rating organization, each Fund may be subject to additional investment restrictions.
Taxable Funds: Financial Square Prime Obligations, Financial Square Money Market, Investor Money Market, Financial Square Treasury Obligations, Financial Square Treasury Solutions and Financial Square Government Funds.
Tax-Advantaged Funds: Financial Square Treasury Instruments and Financial Square Federal Instruments Funds.
Tax-Exempt Fund: Investor Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund.
The Investors: The Funds are generally designed for investors seeking a higher rate of return and convenient liquidation privileges. In addition, the Government Funds and Retail Funds are designed for investors seeking a stable NAV per share. The Funds are particularly suitable for banks, corporations and other financial institutions that seek investment of short-term funds for their own
37

accounts or for the accounts of their customers, except that investments in the Retail Funds are limited to accounts beneficially owned by natural persons. For more information on the investor eligibility requirements for the Retail Funds, please see “Shareholder Guide—How to Buy Shares—Who May Purchase Administration Shares of the Retail Funds?” below.
Shares of the Financial Square Government Fund are intended to qualify as eligible investments for federally chartered credit unions pursuant to Sections 107(7), 107(8) and 107(15) of the Federal Credit Union Act, Part 703 of the National Credit Union Administration (“NCUA”) Rules and Regulations, and NCUA Letter Number 155. The Financial Square Government Fund intends to review changes in the applicable laws, rules and regulations governing eligible investments for federally chartered credit unions, and to take such action as may be necessary so that shares of the Financial Square Government Fund qualify as eligible investments under the Federal Credit Union Act and the regulations thereunder. Shares of the Financial Square Government Fund, however, may or may not qualify as eligible investments for particular state-chartered credit unions. A state-chartered credit union should consult qualified legal counsel to determine whether the Financial Square Government Fund is a permissible investment under the laws applicable to it.
Investment Restrictions: Each Fund is subject to certain investment restrictions that are described in detail under “Investment Restrictions” in the SAI. Fundamental investment restrictions and the investment objective of each Fund (except as provided below) cannot be changed without approval of a majority of the outstanding shares of that Fund. The Financial Square Federal Instruments Fund’s and Investor Money Market Fund’s investment objectives may be changed without shareholder approval upon sixty days’ notice. All investment objectives and policies not specifically designated as fundamental are non-fundamental and may be changed by the Board without shareholder approval.
Maximum Remaining Maturity of Portfolio Investments: 13 months (as determined pursuant to Rule 2a-7) at the time of purchase.
Dollar-Weighted Average Portfolio Maturity: Not more than 60 days (as required by Rule 2a-7).
Dollar-Weighted Average Portfolio Life: Not more than 120 days (as required by Rule 2a-7).
Portfolio Diversification: Diversification can help a Fund reduce the risks of investing. In accordance with Rule 2a-7, each Fund may not invest more than 5% of the value of its total assets at the time of purchase in the securities of any single issuer and certain affiliates of that issuer. However, each Fund may invest up to 25% of the value of its total assets in the securities of a single issuer for up to three business days. These limitations do not apply to cash, certain repurchase agreements, U.S. Government Securities or securities of other investment companies that are money market funds. Securities subject to demand features and guarantees are subject to additional diversification requirements as described in the SAI.
Portfolio Liquidity: The Funds are required to maintain a sufficient degree of liquidity necessary to meet reasonably foreseeable redemption requests. In addition, each Fund (except for the Investor Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund) must hold at least 10% of its total assets in “daily liquid assets” and 30% of its total assets in “weekly liquid assets.” The Investor Tax-Exempt Money Market Fund must hold at least 30% of its total assets in “weekly liquid assets.” For these purposes, daily and weekly liquid assets are calculated as of the end of each business day. Daily liquid assets generally include: (a) cash; (b) direct obligations of the U.S. Government; (c) securities that will mature or are subject to a demand feature that is exercisable and payable within one business day; or (d) amounts receivable and due unconditionally within one business day on pending sales of portfolio securities. Weekly liquid assets generally include: (a) cash; (b) direct obligations of the U.S. Government; (c) certain U.S. Government agency discount notes with remaining maturities of 60 days or less; (d) securities that will mature or are subject to a demand feature that is exercisable and payable within five business days; or (e) amounts receivable and due unconditionally within five business days on pending sales of portfolio securities. In addition, a Fund may not acquire an illiquid security if, after the purchase, more than 5% of the Fund’s total assets would consist of illiquid assets.
Liquidity Fees and Redemption Gates (Institutional Funds and Retail Funds Only): Under Rule 2a-7, the Board is permitted to impose a liquidity fee on redemptions (up to 2%) or a redemption gate that temporarily suspends redemptions (for up to 10 business days during a 90 day period) from an Institutional or Retail Fund, in the event that the Institutional or Retail Fund’s weekly liquid assets fall below certain designated thresholds. The Board generally expects that a liquidity fee or redemption gate would be imposed, if at all, during periods of extraordinary market stress. While the Board may, in its discretion, impose a liquidity fee or redemption gate at any time after the weekly liquid assets of an Institutional or Retail Fund falls below 30% of the Fund’s total assets, the Board generally expects that a liquidity fee or redemption gate would be imposed, if at all, as of the beginning of the next business day following the announcement that the Fund has imposed the liquidity fee or redemption gate.
Announcements regarding the imposition of liquidity fees or redemption gates, or the termination of liquidity fees or redemption gates, will be filed with the SEC on Form N-CR and will be available on the Funds’ website (http://www.gsamfunds.com). In addition, the Institutional and Retail Funds will make such announcements through a supplement to the Prospectus and may also make such announcements through a press release or by other means. For more information on liquidity fees and redemption gates, please see “Shareholder Guide—How To Sell Shares—What Are The Potential Restrictions On Institutional And Retail Fund Redemptions?” below.
Financial Square Federal Instruments Fund: The Investment Adviser will generally seek to place purchase orders for the Financial Square Federal Instruments Fund’s portfolio transactions with women-, minority- and veteran-owned broker-dealers, subject to the Investment Adviser’s duty to seek the best execution for the Fund’s orders.

Investment Management Approach
INVESTMENT PRACTICES AND SECURITIES
Although each Fund’s principal investment strategies are described in the Summary—Principal Strategy sections of the Prospectus, the following table identifies some of the investment techniques that may (but are not required to) be used by the Funds in seeking to achieve their investment objectives. The table also highlights the differences and similarities among the Funds in their use of these techniques and other investment practices and investment securities. Numbers in the table show allowable usage only; for actual usage, consult the Funds’ annual/semi-annual reports. For more information about these and other investment practices and securities, see Appendix A.
Each Fund publishes on its website (http://www.gsamfunds.com) the following:
A schedule of its portfolio holdings (and certain related information as required by Rule 2a-7, including the Fund’s WAM and WAL) as of the last business day of each month, no later than five business days after the end of the prior month. This information will be available on the Funds’ website for at least six months.
A schedule of its portfolio holdings on a weekly basis, with no lag required between the date of the information and the date on which the information is disclosed. This weekly holdings information will be available on the website until the next publish date.
A link to an SEC website where you may obtain the Fund’s most recent 12 months of publicly available portfolio holdings information, as filed with the SEC on Form N-MFP no later than five business days after the end of each month.
A graph depicting the Fund’s daily and weekly liquid assets and daily net inflows and outflows as of each business day for the preceding six months, as of the end of the preceding business day.
A graph depicting the Fund’s current market-based NAV per share (rounded to the fourth decimal place), as of each business day for the preceding six months, as of the end of the preceding business day. A Fund’s current market-based NAV is based on available market quotations of the Fund’s portfolio securities as provided by a third party pricing vendor or broker on the preceding business day. The mark-to-market valuation methodology includes marking to market all securities of the Funds, including securities with remaining maturities of 60 days or less. This market value NAV report is for informational purposes only with respect to the Government and Retail Funds, which seek to maintain a stable NAV of $1.00 per share based on the amortized cost method of valuation.
In the event that a Fund files information regarding certain material events with the SEC on Form N-CR, the Fund will disclose on its website certain information that the Fund is required to report on Form N-CR. Such material events include the provision of any financial support by an affiliated person of a Fund or a decline in weekly liquid assets below 10% of the Fund’s total assets. This information will appear on a Fund’s website no later than the same business day on which the Fund files Form N-CR with the SEC and will be available on the Fund’s website for at least one year.
In addition, certain portfolio statistics (other than portfolio holdings information) are available on a daily basis by calling 1-800-621-2550. A description of the Funds’ policies and procedures with respect to the disclosure of the Funds’ portfolio holdings is available in the Funds’ SAI.
