7 Reasons to use TBIL over Cash Sweep and Money Market Funds

1. Cash Holding Limitations

Unlike cash, TBIL is an ETF investment available for strategic deployment in client accounts. It is not a cash holding and is not subject to limitations on cash positions.

2. Ease and Simplicity

Like any ETF, TBIL can be purchased and sold with ease. That means in most cases TBIL can be converted to cash almost immediately when needed.

3. Monthly Interest Distributions

Investors receive a distribution each month based on the current yield of the 3-Month Bill with the option to reinvest automatically.

4. Tax Advantage

TBIL Dividends are exempt from state and local income taxes.

5. Safety and Security

TBIL holds only one security – the US Treasury 3-Month Bill – backed by the full faith and credit of the US Treasury. No leverage. No illiquid holdings.

6. Cost

The average MMF cost approximately 30 bps with some funds as high as 50 bps.
TBIL is only 15 bps.

7. New SEC Money Fund rules Could Impact Liquidity

Money market fund reforms recently adopted by the SEC will require certain money funds to impose liquidity fees when daily net redemptions exceed 5 percent of the fund’s net assets unless the fund’s liquidity costs are de minimis. This potential liquidity hindrance in times of financial stress does not apply to TBIL.

Many money market funds are FDIC insured and can have less chance of volatility. ETFs could be subject to brokerage or trading fees when bought and sold.

Fund Risks

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. For a prospectus or summary prospectus with this and other information about the Fund, please call 1-800-617-0004. Read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

As with all ETFs, Shares may be bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices. Interest rate risk is the risk of losses attributable to changes in interest rates. In general, if prevailing interest rates rise, the values of debt instruments tend to fall, and if interest rates fall, the values of debt instruments tend to rise.

Fixed-Income Market Risk. The market value of a fixed income security may decline due to general market conditions that are not specifically related to a particular issuer, such as real or perceived adverse economic conditions, changes in the outlook for corporate earnings, changes in interest or currency rates or adverse investor sentiment generally.

Interest Rate Risk. Interest rate risk is the risk of losses attributable to changes in interest rates. In general, if prevailing interest rates rise, the values of debt instruments tend to fall, and if interest rates fall, the values of debt instruments tend to rise.

Income Risk. The Fund’s income may decline if interest rates fall. This decline in income can occur because the Fund may subsequently invest in lower yielding bonds as bonds in its portfolio mature, are near maturity or are called, bonds in the Underlying Index are substituted, or the Fund otherwise needs to purchase additional bonds.

New Fund Risk. The Fund’s is a newly organized, management investment company with no operating history. In addition, there can be no assurance that the Fund’s will grow to, or maintain, an economically viable size, in which case the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of The RBB Fund, Inc. (the “Company”) may determine to liquidate the Fund.

High Portfolio Turnover Risk. In seeking to track the Underlying Index, the Fund may incur relatively high portfolio turnover. The active and frequent trading of the Fund’s portfolio securities may result in increased transaction costs to the Fund, including brokerage commissions, dealer mark-ups and other transaction costs, which could reduce the Fund’s return.

Liquidity Risk. Certain securities held may be difficult (or impossible) to sell at the time and at the price the Adviser would like. New Fund Risk. The funds are newly organized, management investment company with no operating history.

Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a bond or other debt instrument to a change in interest rates.

Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible.
