The Bridge Builder Municipal Bond Fund aims to provide current income exempt from federal tax, with a secondary goal of preservation of investment principal.
The Municipal Bond Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in municipal securities of any maturity or duration whose interest is exempt from federal income tax. Municipal securities include debt obligations issued by or on behalf of a state or local entity or other qualifying issuer that pay interest that is generally excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes. Interest may be includable in taxable income for investors subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. The Fund employs a multi-manager sub-advised structure.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. The value of your investment in the Fund could go down as well as up. Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, credit, interest-rate, liquidity and reinvestment risk. Investments in asset-backed, mortgage-related and mortgage- backed securities may be more sensitive to changes in interest rates, prepayments and impairment of the value of the collateral underlying the security. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund may invest in non-U.S dollar-denominated foreign securities (including emerging markets), which may be more sensitive to currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, differing government regulations and liquidity risk. The Fund may also invest in derivatives which could increase the Fund’s volatility. Multi-manager and multi-style management may lead to overlapping securities transactions and higher transaction expenses compared to single investment management styles. Outcomes depend on the skill of the sub-advisers and adviser and the allocation of assets amongst them. The value of the Fund’s investments in municipal securities may be adversely affected by unfavorable legislative or political developments and economic developments that impact the financial condition of municipal issuers.
