4. All Fidelity ATM withdrawal fees will be waived for your Fidelity® Cash Management Account. In addition, your account will automatically be reimbursed for all ATM fees charged by other institutions while using a Fidelity® Visa® Gold Check Card linked to your account at any ATM displaying the Visa®, Plus®, or Star® logos. The reimbursement will be credited to the account the same day the ATM fee is debited from the account.

The deposit is eligible for FDIC insurance subject to FDIC insurance coverage limits. All assets of the account holder at the depository institution will generally be counted toward the aggregate limit. For more information about FDIC insurance coverage, please visit the FDIC Web site at FDIC.gov or call 877-ASK-FDIC. As referenced in the FDIC-Insured Deposit Sweep Disclosure Document for the Fidelity Cash Management Account, customers are responsible for monitoring their total assets at the Program Bank to determine the extent of available FDIC insurance.

8. Investment Grade: Bonds rated BBB/Baa or higher by S&P and/or Moody's respectively. Such ratings indicate that a municipal or corporate bond has a relatively low risk of default.
9. All investment strategies, including the investment strategy of the Service, involve the risk of loss of a portion of or all assets. In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties.
As with any investment, your investment through the Breckinridge Municipal SMA could have tax consequences for you. The Breckinridge Municipal SMA seeks to earn income exempt from federal income tax. Income exempt from federal income tax may be subject to state or local tax. A portion of the income you receive may be subject to federal and state income taxes and may also be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. You may also receive taxable income attributable to the sale of municipal bonds, because certain income, including short-term capital gains and gains on the sale of bonds characterized as market discount, are generally taxable as ordinary income, while long-term capital gains are typically taxable as capital gains. The municipal market can be affected by adverse tax, legislative, or political changes and the financial condition of the issuers of municipal securities. Such changes can affect the tax treatment of municipal bonds. Investing in municipal bonds for the purpose of generating tax-exempt income may not be appropriate for investors in all tax brackets or account types. Tax laws are subject to change, and the preferential tax treatment of municipal bond interest income may be removed or phased out for investors at certain income levels. You should consult your tax adviser for questions pertaining to your specific situation.
Strategic Advisers, Inc. and BlackRock Investment Management, LLC are independent entities and are not legally affiliated. Strategic Advisers, Inc. is the investment manager for client accounts and implements trades for the accounts based on the model portfolio of investments it receives from BlackRock Investment Management, LLC. Strategic Advisers, Inc. may select investments for an account that differ from BlackRock Investment Management, LLC's model.

10. Guarantees apply to certain insurance and annuity products and are subject to product terms, exclusions and limitations and the insurer's claims-paying ability and financial strength.

Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if made before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal income tax penalty.
