The bond quality ratings indicated are assigned by credit rating agencies Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch as an indication of an issuer’s creditworthiness. Unless specified by client investment guidelines, the middle of three or highest of two credit quality ratings available from these rating agencies is used. Credit quality is subject to change. Ratings are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). Ratings information from Standard & Poor's (“S&P”) may not be reproduced. S&P credit ratings are statements of opinion and are not statements of fact or recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, nor do they address the suitability of securities for investment purposes, and should not be relied on as investment advice. S&P does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or availability of any information, including ratings, and is not responsible for errors or omissions (negligent or otherwise). S&P gives no express or implied warranties, including but not limited to any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use. S&P shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, exemplary, compensatory, punitive, special or consequential damages, costs, expenses, legal fees, or losses (including lost income or profits and opportunity costs) in connection with any use of ratings.

The ICE® BofA® US 3-Month Treasury Index measures the performance of a single issue of outstanding treasury bill which matures closest to, but not beyond, three months from the rebalancing date. The issue is purchased at the beginning of the month and held for a full month; at the end of the month that issue is sold and rolled into a newly selected issue.

The ICE® BofA® US Dollar 3-Month Deposit Offered Rate Constant Maturity Index (formerly called the BofA Merrill Lynch 3-Month LIBOR Constant Maturity Index) is based on the assumed purchase of a synthetic instrument having 3 months to maturity and with a coupon equal to the closing quote for 3-Month LIBOR. That issue is sold the following day (priced at a yield equal to the current day closing 3-Month LIBOR rate) and is rolled into a new 3-Month instrument. The index, therefore, will always have a constant maturity equal to exactly 3 months.
