State Street Active Core Bond Fund - Investment Class SSFIX

Important Risk Information

Considering the risks: Interest rate movements, unscheduled mortgage prepayments and other risk factors will affect the fund's share price and yield. Bond prices generally move in the opposite direction of interest rates. Thus, as the prices of bonds in the fund adjust to a rise in interest rates, the fund's share price may decline. The price of a bond is affected by the issuer's or counterparty's credit quality. Changes in an entity's financial condition and general economic conditions can affect its ability to honor financial obligations and therefore its credit quality. Lower quality bonds are generally more sensitive to these changes than higher quality bonds. These and other risk considerations are discussed in the Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus.

Before investing in a Fund, you should carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses. For a free copy of a prospectus and summary prospectus, which contain this and other information call 1-800-242-0134. Please read the fund prospectus and summary prospectus carefully before investing.

Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Upon redemption, shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. The current performance may be higher or lower than the quoted performance. To view SEC standardized performance select the most recent quarterly period ending March, June, September or December. All other periods shown are non-standardized performance and are not valid without SEC standardized performance.

The performance figures shown above reflect the impact of fees and expenses for the funds' share class, and include the reinvestment of all income dividends and capital gains distributions, but do not include the effect of taxation. State Street Global Advisors ("SSGA") may have reimbursed certain expenses or waived certain fees during the periods shown. Absent those reimbursements, the Fund's total return or yield would have been lower.

On July 1, 2016 State Street Corporation, the parent company of SSGA Funds Management, Inc., and State Street Global Markets, LLC acquired the asset management and advisory services business of GE Asset Management, Incorporated, the former investment adviser to the Fund. As of that date, SSGA Funds Management, Inc. became the investment adviser to the Fund and State Street Global Markets, LLC became the distributor for the Fund. Effective May 1, 2017, State Street Global Markets, LLC was renamed State Street Global Advisors Funds Distributors, LLC. Any information, data or performance provided prior to that date is that of GE Asset Management, Incorporated.

None of the Funds or share classes (if applicable) assess a sales charge upon the purchase or redemption of shares.

SEC Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the period by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period.

The Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses shown for each Fund share class reflects the total annual operating expenses of the Fund share class prior to any fee waivers or expense reimbursements, as provided in the most recent Fund prospectus. Actual Fund operating expenses will change over time based on Fund asset levels and other factors and may be higher or lower than those estimated for the current fiscal year.

The returns of each index shown do not include the effect of management fees, sales charges, operating expenses of a fund or other account, or taxes. The returns of the index are unmanaged and do not reflect the actual cost of investing in the instruments that comprise it. You cannot invest directly in an index.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
