Investment Objectives and Policies

The investment objective of this Fund is to provide high current income that is substantially exempt from Federal and state of Hawaii income taxes.

Who Should Invest

The Bishop Street Hawaii Municipal Bond Fund might be a good choice for you if you're seeking to:

  • Increase your after-tax return with tax-free income.
  • Protect your investment income from Federal and Hawaii state personal income taxes.
  • Diversify your portfolio by adding income to an equity portfolio

Mike and Sharon Kaiser have "done well" over the years, and that's good news, but their current investments carry a big tax burden. While they don't plan to officially retire, they do plan to live off the income from their investments. Since they're in the highest tax bracket, the Bishop Street Hawaii Municipal Bond Fund can help them build Federal and Hawaii tax-free earnings, giving them a steady stream of income without having to pay as much of it in taxes.

Investment Strategy

The Bishop Street Hawaii Municipal Bond Fund can help provide current income and tax advantages. This fund invests primarily in high grade, short-term bonds issued by Hawaii government entities. What that means for most Hawaii residents is that income from this fund is substantially double tax-exempt, free from both Hawaii state and federal personal income taxes.

There is no guarantee the Fund's income will be exempt from federal or state income taxes. Capital gains, if any, are subject to capital gains taxes.

If the fund is less than 1 year old, cumulative return since inception is shown; if the fund is less than 10 years old, annualized return since inception is shown.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Prior to February 1, 2010, the Fund’s principal investment strategy was to invest at least 80% of its net assets in large-cap equity securities; therefore, the past performance shown may have differed had the Fund’s current investment strategy been in effect.

§ The performance presented for class A links the performance of an older class of shares from inception on 2/16/95 to 6/14/99 with the performance of this class of shares after its inception on 6/14/99.

Bond and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise.

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, because the Hawaii Municipal Bond Fund primarily invests in Hawaiian securities, it may be more volatile and susceptible to a single adverse economic or regulatory occurrence affecting those obligations.

There is no guarantee the Fund's income will be exempt from federal or state income taxes. Capital gains, if any, are subject to capital gains taxes. The Fund is not diversified.

Currently the Hawaii Municipal Bond Fund Class A Shares gross expense ratio is 1.29% and net expense ratio is 0.80%. All fee waivers are contractual through April 30, 2019.
