The Historical Net Asset Value ("NAV") chart displays the 3:00pm ET Floating NAV of the fund. Prior to October 12, 2016, the Historical NAV chart displayed the Shadow NAV of the fund. The Shadow NAV of the Fund was designed to show the extent of deviation, if any, of the net asset value of the Fund using the amortized cost method of valuation in which, during the calculating the Fund's NAV, portfolio securities are valued at the fund's acquisition cost, as adjusted for amortization of premium or accretion of discount, intended to create a "stable NAV", in comparison to portfolio securities being valued based on available market quotations or current market factors, creating a likely "floating NAV". 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. None of the State Street Corporation, State Street Bank and Trust Company, State Street Global Advisors, SSGA Funds Management, Inc. or their affiliates ("State Street Entities") guarantee the value of your investment at $1.00 per share.
