1 GAMA can provide an Insured Network Deposit (IND) Service, an FDIC insured, multi-bank deposit program designed to provide an alternative to offering traditional money market mutual funds as a cash sweep option. The IND Service does not involve investment in a money market mutual fund. The IND Service is a product of Promontory Interfinancial Network offered through a private labeling arrangement with the Dreyfus Cash Solutions division of BNY Mellon Securities Corporation (BNYMSC) and is available only to clients of broker/dealers who clear through Pershing, LLC (Pershing). BNYMSC and Pershing are subsidiaries of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BNY Mellon). Unlike the IND Service, which offers FDIC insurance on cash deposits, money market mutual funds are not FDIC-insured and involve risk to principal. Promontory Interfinancial Network is an affiliate of Promontory Financial Group, a leading provider of regulatory consulting to banks, broker-dealers and other financial services firms. 2 Check writing and debit card services are provided by BNY Mellon Investment Servicing Trust Company (“BNY Mellon”). The award points program is provided by cxLoyalty, Inc. Online bill pay is provided by Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.(FIS). The 24-hour voice response system is provided by [24]7.ai. Promontory Interfinancial Network, cxLoyalty, Inc., FIS and [24]7.ai are not affiliated with BNY Mellon.

GAMA is not a securities account and clients of financial intermediaries who offer the GAMA cannot trade securities through the GAMA. Clients can only transact in securities through accounts established and maintained with third party financial intermediaries.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a mutual fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.

A money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in a money market fund.
