Janney Montgomery Scott LLC (“Janney”) maintains a Cash Sweep Program that provides you with the opportunity to earn income on available cash balances held in each account Janney carries or maintains for you (each, an “Account” or “Accounts”). Janney’s Cash Sweep Program consists of two options whereby, subject to eligibility, your available cash will be automatically: (i) deposited in an account maintained at one or more banks (the “Insured Sweep Option” or “Insured Sweep”), or (ii) used to purchase shares of one or more money market mutual funds that Janney makes available (the “Money Market Sweep Option” or “Money Market Sweep”). Each option has distinctive features and certain eligibility requirements. Janney may change the products available under the Cash Sweep Program from time to time with notice to you. If Janney makes any change to the products available, there is no guarantee that such change will provide an equal or greater rate of return to you during any given period, and the rate of return may be lower.

Janney clients affirmatively consent to participation in Janney’s Cash Sweep Program by signing the Janney Client Agreement and Disclosures (the “Agreement”) with Janney, but may revoke this consent at any time by contacting a Janney Financial Advisor. If you decline participation in the Cash Sweep Program, the cash portion of your Account will remain as a free credit balance until you instruct your Janney Financial Advisor to invest such balance. For additional information on free credit balances please refer to the section below entitled “Free Credit Balance Features”. Other short-term, cash-equivalent investments are available to you through your Account. However, such other investments are not part of Janney’s Cash Sweep Program and will not offer an automatic sweep feature.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND OPTIONS

Each option in the Cash Sweep Program is subject to unique risks and is afforded different protections. The yields and rates of return for deposit accounts in Insured Sweep are different, and may be lower or higher, than the yields and rates of return for Money Market Sweep. A discussion of the characteristics and administration of the Cash Sweep Program as well as a discussion of client rates of return follows further in this Supplement.

1. INSURED SWEEP

BASICS OF THE PROGRAM

You authorize and direct Janney to enroll your Account in the Insured Sweep Option unless your Account is an ERISA Advisory Account, or you have selected the Money Market Sweep Option. All Accounts, other than ERISA Advisory Accounts, are eligible to participate in the Insured Sweep Option. Under the Insured Sweep Option, available cash in your Account as a result of deposits or the sale of securities is automatically deposited or “swept” into an interest-bearing bank Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) eligible deposit account (“Deposit Account”) at one or more FDIC-insured depository institutions participating in the Program (each, a “Program Bank”). Once your cash balance has been swept to a Program Bank, it is referred to as your “Program Deposit.” Please note that your ability to access your Program Deposits may be limited, as more fully described herein.

PROGRAM BANKS AND PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS

Under its Insured Sweep Option, Janney utilizes two separate third-party administrators (the “Administrator(s)” “Administrator”) to deposit available cash into the Deposit Accounts. Your eligible Account(s) will be assigned to an Administrator based on whether each Account is a Non-Corporate Account or a Corporate Account. Non-Corporate Accounts enrolled in Janney Insured Sweep may include individual Accounts, joint Accounts, trust/estates and retirement Accounts. Corporate Accounts enrolled in Janney Insured Sweep may include Accounts held by corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability companies, foreign institutions, banks, trust companies, investment clubs, insurance companies, religious organizations, fraternal/charitable organizations and non-profit organizations. For clarification, Corporate Accounts may be referred to herein as participating in the “Corporate Insured Sweep Option” or “Janney Corporate Insured Sweep”.

For Non-Corporate Accounts, participating Program Banks are organized into a number of Program Bank lists (“Program Bank List(s)”), which are divided by the type of Account and the state or geographic region based on the mailing address of your Account statements, in order to manage the distribution of Insured Sweep balances among the Program Banks. The Program Bank List that applies to you is based on the address for your Account that you provide to Janney.

For Corporate Accounts, there is a separate and distinct Program Bank List which is organized by alphabetical order, although this is not necessarily the order in which these Program Banks will accept your Deposits. Available cash in your Corporate Accounts will be allocated among the Program Banks according to a methodology which considers the amount of Deposits that each Program Bank agrees to accept at the time of deposit.

All Program Bank Lists may be amended from time to time, and are available from your Janney Financial Advisor or at www.janney.com/cash. You may not change the Program Banks on the Program Bank Lists, the order in that cash is deposited at the Program Banks on a Program Bank List or the applicable deposit limit at any Program Bank. You should review the Program Bank List(s) carefully and often. As described more fully below, there may be changes to the Program Banks on the Program Bank Lists from time to time.

You may designate a Program Bank as ineligible to receive your funds, in which case, monies which would otherwise be deposited to that bank will simply be deposited to the next bank on the applicable Program Bank List, as identified by your Account’s Administrator. If you already have deposits at any Program Bank on the Program Bank List, please notify your Janney Financial Advisor if you would like to designate that Program Bank as ineligible so that no additional cash is allocated through the Cash Sweep Program to that Program Bank, which should help to avoid deposits in that Program Bank exceeding your FDIC insurance coverage.

You are responsible for monitoring whether you have other accounts, assets and deposits at any of the Program Banks on the Program Bank List that may limit the amount of FDIC insurance available to you under the Cash Sweep Program, and notifying your Janney Financial Advisor if you want to opt out of using a Program Bank or wish to remove an opt-out previously made. If you designate one or more Program Banks as ineligible, the total amount of FDIC insurance for which your cash balances will be eligible in the Insured Sweep Option will be reduced accordingly. Participation in the Insured Sweep Option requires at least one (1) Program Bank to remain eligible to receive your deposits. Thus, you may not opt out of all Program Banks on the Program Bank List.

 As discussed in more detail further herein, a money fund (“Money Fund”) will be used when your Account has reached the maximum deposit threshold (the “Aggregate Deposit Limit”) or if the Program Banks have insufficient capacity to accept additional deposits. See also the section below titled, “When There is Not Enough Capacity at the Program Banks to Accept Deposits in the Insured Sweep Option.”

The Administrators will deposit available cash in your Account into a Deposit Account at each of the participating Program Banks, as designated by the Program Bank List up to the applicable deposit limit, but not to exceed the maximum FDIC insurance coverage limit of $250,000 for all account types ($500,000 for Non-Corporate Joint Accounts of two or more individuals) (the “Individual FDIC Bank Deposit Limit”). Once your cash in the Deposit Account at a Program Bank reaches the Deposit Limit, Janney, as your agent, will open a Deposit Account for you at the next Program Bank on the Program Bank List and place your additional cash in the Deposit Account at that Program Bank. The Administrator will then continue to deposit available cash in your Account into the Deposit Accounts in order to permit such cash to be eligible for the greatest possible FDIC insurance coverage, subject to the capacity limits of each Program Bank. Once cash amounts equal to the Individual FDIC Bank Deposit Limit have been deposited in a Program Bank on the Program Bank List, additional cash up to the Individual FDIC Bank Deposit Limit will be deposited into the next Program Bank on the Program Bank List, and so on, until your aggregate cash balance in the Deposit Accounts have been deposited into multiple Program Banks and Aggregate Deposit Limit is reached. It is possible that at times one or more Program Banks on the Program Bank List may not be able to accept your deposits up to the Individual FDIC Bank Deposit Limit, in which case your cash will be deposited into the next Program Bank on the Program Bank List, and that for such time the number of Program Banks on the Program Bank List accepting deposits may not be sufficient to provide FDIC insurance coverage up to the Aggregate Deposit Limit. As described above, once you either have reached your Aggregate Deposit Limit or the available capacity in all available Program Banks on your Program Bank List, remaining cash in your Account will be invested in shares of the Money Fund.

JANNEY’S ROLE AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BANKS

Janney will act as your agent and custodian in establishing and maintaining the Deposit Accounts at each Program Bank. Although Deposit Accounts are obligations of the Program Banks and not Janney, you will not have a direct relationship with the Program Banks. All deposits and withdrawals will be made by Janney on your behalf. Information about your Deposit Accounts may be obtained from Janney, not the Program Banks. For the Insured Sweep Option, an omnibus account will be established for the exclusive benefit of Janney clients, into which your available cash balances will be deposited. Account ownership in the omnibus account will be in book-entry form, in the account records of each Program Bank, and no passbook or other certificate will be issued by Program Banks or Janney. Deposits or withdrawals, as well as your balance(s) at each Program Bank, will be reflected in your Account at Janney and described in your Account statement. Please refer to the Account statement for (i) a list of the balances at each Program Bank as of the last business day of each statement period; (ii) details on sweeps to and from the Deposit Accounts during the statement period; and (iii) details on the interest credited to your Account. Janney is responsible for the accuracy of your Account statement, not the Program Banks. Your Janney Financial Advisor can assist you in understanding your Account statement and can answer any questions you may have about your Account statement. The Deposit Account at the Program Bank is a direct obligation of the Program Bank and not an obligation of Janney. While the Program Banks are not affiliated with Janney, Janney may, from time to time, own securities issued by the Program Banks and may have other business relationships with them.

Special rules and consideration apply for retirement accounts.

We do not guarantee in any way the financial condition of the Program Banks or the accuracy of any publicly available financial information concerning such Program Banks. You can obtain publicly available financial information concerning each Program Bank at www.ffiec.gov/nic or by contacting the FDIC Public Information Center by mail at L. William Seidman Center, Virginia Square, 3501 North Fairfax Drive, Arlington, Virginia 22226 or by phone at 703-562-2200.

COMBINED INSURABLE ACCOUNTS

If you have more than one Account in the same capacity (e.g., more than one Account in your own name, more than one Account held jointly with the same person, etc.), allocation services for the cash in your Accounts will be provided for FDIC insurance purposes and your Accounts will be held in the same insurable capacity with Janney (“Combined Insurable Accounts”). The available cash from the Combined Insurable Accounts will be deposited into Deposit Accounts so that the aggregate amount of cash in the Combined Insurable Accounts deposited into each Program Bank on the Program Bank List does not exceed the applicable Deposit Limit. With Combined Insurable Accounts, you are still responsible for monitoring the total amount of deposits that you have with each Program Bank, in order to determine the extent of FDIC deposit insurance coverage available to you.

CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM BANK LISTS

From time to time, one or more of the Program Banks included on the Program Bank Lists may be replaced with a bank not previously included on a Program Bank List, a Program Bank may be deleted from a Program Bank List and the order of Program Banks on a Program Bank List may change. Janney will generally provide you with 30 days’ notice prior to a change in a Program Bank List. There are some circumstances in which a 30-day advance notice may not be feasible. In such circumstances, additional information may be provided upon written request. The current Program Bank Lists are available from your Janney Financial Advisor or at www.janney.com/cash. Janney will update the Program Bank Lists when changes are made. Please review the Program Bank List(s) applicable to your Account(s), or consult your Janney Financial Advisor, periodically throughout the month for recent updates and information regarding how these changes may impact your Account.

Under certain circumstances, such as if a Program Bank is no longer able to accept deposits for regulatory or other reasons, Janney may be unable to provide advance notice of changes in the sequence of the Program Banks on the Program Bank List. In such cases, Janney will provide you notice as soon as practicable. If you receive notice that the Program Bank List has changed, it is your obligation to review the Program Bank Lists on our website or obtain the Program Bank Lists from your Janney Financial Advisor. The current Program Bank Lists will always be available on our website or from your Janney Financial Advisor.

For Non-Corporate Accounts, in the event that the order of Program Banks on the Program Bank List has changed, your previously-deposited cash will not be reallocated based on the new sequence. Deposits and withdrawals of your cash made after a change to the Program Bank List will be made in accordance with the updated Program Bank List and as described above under “Program Descriptions and Options – Insured Sweep”.

WHEN THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CAPACITY AT THE PROGRAM BANKS TO ACCEPT DEPOSITS IN THE INSURED SWEEP OPTION

Our ability to sweep your free credit balance to a Program Bank depends on the Program Bank’s capacity to accept the deposits. If a Program Bank has insufficient capacity to accept additional sweep deposits, or otherwise reduces its capacity to accept sweep deposits, and sweeping additional deposits to any other Program Bank is unfeasible, free credit balances in your Account that cannot be swept to any Program Bank will automatically be invested in shares of a Money Fund. Purchases of shares of the Money Fund will be made within one business day after new free credit balances are in your Account at the then current net asset value of the Money Fund. You may obtain a copy of the prospectus for that Money Fund by contacting your Janney Financial Advisor. Should Program Bank capacity become available, shares of the Money Fund will be liquidated and the cash proceeds will be swept to one or more of the Program Banks, and, new free credit balances in your Account will again be deposited with one or more Program Banks. The Money Fund currently used for this purpose is the Dreyfus Government Cash Management Money Fund.

If neither the Program Banks nor the Money Fund have sufficient capacity to accept additional deposits or investments, the cash in your Account will be held in your Account as a free credit balance and earn no interest. When sufficient capacity in the Program Banks, or the Money Fund, has been restored, we will sweep the free credit balances in your Account to one or more of the Program Banks, or the Money Fund, as applicable.

During times when you have cash invested in the Money Fund and free credit balances cash in your Account, and you use cash in your Account, it will first be deducted from the free credit balances cash balance in your Account, then redeemed from the Money Fund, and finally withdrawn from your balances in Program Banks, as applicable.

ACCESS TO CASH IN THE DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS

As required by federal banking regulations, each Program Bank has reserved the right to require seven (7) calendar days’ prior notice before permitting a withdrawal of any cash from Deposit Accounts. However, this seven (7) day notice requirement is rarely, if ever exercised by Program Banks. So long as this right is not exercised, your ability to access your cash, including the ability to write checks against your Account, should not be impacted. Your interest in a Deposit Account is not transferable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you remain responsible for all obligations arising from your Account, including, but not limited to, margin balances, settlement of transactions, checks, wires, and debit card purchases.

When cash is needed to cover transactions in your Account, it will first be deducted from the free credit balances in your Account, then redeemed from the Money Fund, and finally withdrawn from your balances in Program Banks, as applicable.

OPERATIONAL DETAILS

For Non-Corporate Accounts, when sweeping cash into Program Banks, Janney, as your agent, will open a Deposit Account on your behalf that is comprised of a money market deposit account (“MMDA”), which is a type of savings deposit, and a linked transaction account (“TA”). The MMDAs and TAs are made available at each Program Bank and are non-transferable. As your agent, Janney will deposit available cash balances in the MMDA at each Program Bank as set forth previously in this Disclosure. All withdrawals will be made from the TA at a Program Bank by Janney as your agent. A debit is created to satisfy a securities purchase or a request for a withdrawal of cash from your Account and, if applicable, when you write a check on your Account, make payments via the online bill pay service or withdraw cash through your debit card. Checks written on your Account are not drawn directly against the Deposit Accounts established for you at the Program Banks.

For Corporate Accounts, Janney, as your agent, will open either a MMDA or a TA, but not both. Deposit Accounts are non-transferable. As necessary, Janney, as your agent, will open Deposit Accounts at other Program Banks on the Program Bank List and place your additional funds in those Program Banks. All withdrawals will be made from your Deposit Accounts, necessary to satisfy debits or deficiencies in your brokerage account will be made by Janney as your agent. Withdrawals to cover debits or deficiencies in your Accounts will be made from one or more Deposit Accounts at the Program Bank(s) in which your funds have been deposited.

For both Non-Corporate and Corporate Accounts, you may be invested in shares of the Money Fund when your Account has reached the Aggregate Deposit Limit or if the Program Banks have insufficient capacity to accept additional deposits. For additional information please refer to the previous section titled “When There is Not Enough Capacity at the Program Banks to Accept Deposits in the Insured Sweep”. For Non-Corporate Accounts, if a withdrawal of cash is necessary to satisfy a debit, shares of the Money Fund in which you are invested will be liquidated before cash is withdrawn from your TAs at the Program Banks on the Program Bank List. If you do not have cash invested in shares of the Money Fund, cash will be withdrawn from your TAs at the Program Banks on the Program Bank List beginning with the lowest priority Program Bank at which your cash has been deposited. If there is insufficient cash at that Program Bank, cash will be withdrawn from each Program Bank in the sequence (lowest priority to highest priority) until the debit is satisfied. If cash in the TA at the Program Bank from which cash is being withdrawn is insufficient to satisfy a debit, cash in the related MMDA at that Program Bank will be transferred to the TA to satisfy the debit, plus cash to maintain any TA minimum, or “threshold,” amount, as determined by the Program Bank and Janney in their discretion to satisfy debits in your Account.

If there is insufficient cash in the Deposit Accounts at the Program Banks on the Program Bank List to satisfy the debit, Janney will withdraw cash from other available sources such as an Account’s free credit balance or available margin balance, Additionally, Janney may, if necessary and in its discretion at any time, close any or all of your Accounts and, without further notice, liquidate assets in any or all of your Accounts by public or private sale or purchase or both in an amount sufficient to pay such indebtedness, buy in (cover) short positions, cancel outstanding orders in whole or in part, and take any other appropriate or necessary action without incurring any liability whatsoever.

Federal banking regulations limit the transfers from an MMDA (e.g., ATM withdrawals and transfers out), per Program Bank, to a total of six (6) during a monthly statement cycle. At any point during a month in which transfers from an MMDA at a Program Bank reach the transfer limit, all cash will be transferred from that MMDA to the linked TA at the Program Bank until the end of the month. Deposits for the remainder of the month into such Program Bank will be made to the TA. At the beginning of the next month, cash on deposit in the TA will be transferred to the MMDA, minus any threshold amount to be maintained in the TA. The regulations on MMDA transfers will not limit the number of withdrawals you can make from cash on deposit at Program Banks in aggregate or the amount of FDIC insurance coverage for which you are eligible.

Pursuant to federal banking regulations, the Program Banks must reserve the right to require seven (7) days’ prior written notice before you withdraw or transfer funds from a MMDA. TAs are not subject to this restriction. The Program Banks have informed us that they do not currently intend to exercise this right against MMDAs.

You may instruct Janney at any time to withdraw all or a portion of the monies invested through the Program.

2.  MONEY MARKET SWEEP

BASICS OF THE PROGRAM

If you selected the Money Market Sweep Option available for your account type or the Account is an ERISA Advisory Account, you authorize Janney to open a Money Market Sweep account in the designated Money Fund, as described below.

Under the Money Market Sweep Option, Janney offers our clients taxable and tax-exempt sweep money market mutual funds (each a “Money Fund”) that are managed by Dreyfus Cash Investment Strategies (“Dreyfus CIS”), a division of BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. The list of Money Funds used as a Cash Sweep Option is available at www.janney.com/cash or you may contact your Janney Financial Advisor.

ERISA Advisory Accounts that participate in the Money Market Sweep Option authorize and direct Janney to invest available cash balances in the Dreyfus Government Cash Management Fund - Institutional Shares (DGCXX), which is the only Cash Sweep Option for ERISA Advisory Accounts.

Money Funds may impose a fee upon the sale of shares (a liquidity fee) or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares (a redemption gate) if the Money Fund’s liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. The Money Fund’s board has no intention to impose liquidity fees or redemptions gates. You may obtain further details about any particular Money Fund by requesting the Money Fund’s prospectus from your Janney Financial Advisor.

FREE CREDIT BALANCE FEATURES

Uninvested cash held in your account, referred to as free credit balances, may be used by us in the ordinary course of our business subject to the requirements of Rule 15c3-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Janney does not pay interest on free credit balances in any Accounts. The use of client free credit balances generally generates revenue for us in the form of interest and income, which we retain as additional compensation for our services to our clients. We will generally earn interest or a return based on short-term market interest rated prevailing at the time. We do not share this compensation with your Janney Financial Advisor. Free credit balances held in your account are not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency, but are protected by Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). For additional information on SIPC, please see the section titled “Account Protections - General”.

If you are acting on behalf of a retirement account, the responsible plan fiduciary agrees that it has independently determined that holding cash balances as a free credit balance, which may not earn income for the Account, is both (i) reasonable and in the best interests of the Account and (ii) that the Account receives no less, nor pays no more, than adequate consideration with respect to this arrangement. We do not share this compensation with your Janney Financial Advisor.

TIMING AND WITHDRAWAL OF ASSETS FOR INSURED SWEEP AND MONEY MARKET SWEEP

For Insured Sweep, the cash balance in your Account will be automatically swept from your Account into the Deposit Accounts on the business day following the day your Account reflects a cash balance. In this context, business day generally means a day on which the applicable Program Bank is open for business. Available cash balances will not begin to earn interest or be eligible for FDIC insurance until swept into a Deposit Account at a Program Bank.

For Money Market Sweep, any cash balance in your Account will be automatically swept into the Money Fund after the close of business on that business day and generally will not begin earning dividends until the following business day.

You may make a withdrawal from any of the Cash Sweep Program options on any business day. Withdrawals may be effected through any of the features available to your Account (e.g., check, ATM/debit card) or by contacting your Janney Financial Advisor. 

CHANGES TO YOUR CASH SWEEP OPTION BASED ON ACCOUNT TYPE CONVERSION

If at any time you change your Account from a Brokerage Account to an Advisory Account (other than an ERISA Advisory Account), it may be necessary for Janney to change the sweep option for your Account to Insured Sweep and you authorize and direct Janney to do so. Additionally, if at any time you change your Account from an Advisory Account to a Brokerage Account, it may be necessary for Janney to change the sweep option for your Account to Insured Sweep, and you authorize and direct Janney to do the same. The aforementioned changes may not be required in all cases. You should contact your Janney Financial Advisor with any questions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you transition to an ERISA Advisory Account, you authorize and direct Janney to change your sweep option to the Money Market Sweep.

RATE OF RETURN – INTEREST ON THE DEPOSIT ACCOUNT AND YIELDS ON THE MONEY FUNDS

1.  INSURED SWEEP - INTEREST RATES.

All Accounts, Other Than Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts1. Interest rates paid on your cash balances in the Insured Sweep Option are determined daily by Janney based upon a variety of factors including the interest rate paid by the Program Banks on the aggregate balances of the Deposit Accounts, the fees deducted by Janney out of such interest rates for certain administrative accounting, recordkeeping and other services, and prevailing economic and business conditions. Generally, the yields and rates of return for Deposit Accounts will differ and will be tiered based on your “household” balance. A “household” is defined as one or more Accounts with the same mailing address or Social Security/Taxpayer Identification Number that are serviced by the same Financial Advisor or team of Financial Advisors. Janney determines your household balance by aggregating the Account balances that make up the household. Advisory Accounts, other than Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts, will receive the highest interest rate available at the time of investment regardless of household balance. Interest accrues and is compounded daily beginning on the day the Program Bank receives cash deposits from Janney. Accrued interest is credited to your Account on the last business day of the month. If you make a withdrawal, interest will be paid through the day prior to the day of withdrawal. As referenced above, Janney is compensated based on the difference or “spread” between the interest rate paid by the Program Bank on the amounts deposited in the Deposit Account and the rates that Janney offers to its clients.

The tier applicable to your household Accounts will be determined by Janney on a monthly basis calculated as of the last business day of the preceding calendar month. The interest rate tiers are currently as follows:

Interest Rate TierTotal Aggregate Asset Level (of household accounts)
Tier 4 > $1 Million
Tier 3 $500,000 - $999,999
Tier 2 $250,000 - $499,999
Tier 1 < $250,000

The interest rate tiers and the total aggregate asset level for each tier are current as of the date referenced at the top of this this Disclosure but may change over time with notice to you. Cash balances in new Accounts will be placed into Tier 4 through the end of the month in which the Account is opened. Thereafter, the cash balances will earn interest in accordance with the applicable tier level based on the aggregate value of the assets in your household accounts (minus any liabilities).

For current interest rate tiers and applicable interest rates, go to www.janney.com/cash.

Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts. (All Advisory IRA Accounts Other Than Partners Advisory)1. The method for calculating the interest rate on cash balances in discretionary advisory IRA Accounts in the Insured Sweep Option is different from the methodology referenced above. The interest rate on these Accounts is determined by the amount of interest the Program Banks are willing to pay on the aggregate balances in the applicable Deposit Accounts minus the (i) fixed account-level fee you agree to pay Janney for sweep services (discussed below) and (ii) the fees paid to other parties, without regard to household size.

More information about the Insured Sweep Options, including the interest rate tiers and yields, is available from your Janney Financial Advisor or by visiting www.janney.com/cash.

2.  MONEY MARKET SWEEP – DIVIDEND RATES

Cash swept to Money Funds will earn dividends based on the interest and income realized by the Money Funds’ underlying investments. The dividends earned on the shares in the Money Funds will not be payable in cash but will be reinvested each month in additional shares of the applicable Money Fund at the then current net asset value. Rates of return you receive will vary from Money Fund to Money Fund, because such rates are based on the investments made by the Money Fund net of such Money Fund’s operating expenses. Some Money Funds invest in certain securities, the income from which is exempt from federal and/or state income tax. The rates of return on Money Funds will differ from the interest rates available in the Insured Sweep Option. For a complete list of Money Funds available to your Account, go to www.janney.com/cash or contact your Janney Financial Advisor.

There is no guarantee that the rate of return or the yields will equal or exceed rates of return or yields available at other financial institutions or invested in other products similar to the Money Market Sweep Option. Yields fluctuate and past performance is no guarantee of future results. For more information about the current dividend rate you are receiving in the Money Market Sweep Option and current rates of return offered by the Insured Sweep Option, please go to the “Daily Cash Sweep Rates” link available at www.janney.com/cash or contact your Janney Financial Advisor.

FEES AND RELATED CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

For All Accounts, Other Than Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts. Program Banks will pay Janney a fee equal to a percentage of the average daily deposit balance in your Deposit Accounts at the Program Bank. Janney reserves the right to increase, decrease, or waive all or part of these fees at any time. The fee may vary from Program Bank to Program Bank. The amount of fee received by Janney will affect the interest rate paid by the Program Bank on your Deposit Accounts. 

The Program Bank fees cover the fee for each Administrator, our fees, and interest payable to participating Accounts. You have no rights to the fees paid by the Program Banks to Janney, other than the interest credited to your Account, as described above.

If you are investing through an Advisory Account, the fees that Janney receives from the Program Banks are in addition to Janney’s advisory fee. This means that Janney earns two layers of fees on the same cash balance in your Janney Advisory Account. Therefore, we have an incentive to encourage you to enroll in the Insured Sweep Option.

For Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts. Janney receives a level monthly fee for each Account in the Insured Sweep Option. This amount is determined based on a fee schedule indexed to the Federal Fund Target Rate (“FFT”). Janney’s per account monthly fee is administratively managed to be no less than $0.50 and no more than $12.00. Janney anticipates that these fees will be offset by the total amounts paid by the Program Banks to Janney. If Janney does not receive sufficient payments each month from the Program Banks, we reserve the right to debit the Account for the amount of any shortfall.

For its services, the Administrator will charge a monthly fee. This fee will be paid from the amounts the Program Banks pay in respect of the aggregate program deposits and will vary from month-to-month. The Administrator’s fee consists of a fee expressed in basis points on the average daily cash balances at the Program Banks. The Administrator’s actual fee will be subject to adjustment as described below.

  • For each month, the Administrator’s actual fee will be the amount that remains after deducting the interest paid to participating Accounts and the aggregate amount of our per Account fee (discussed below) from the amounts paid by the Program Banks on program deposits (“Administrator Actual Fee”). Thus, the Administrator Actual Fee will vary from time-to-time due to changes in the amounts paid by the Program Banks, the interest paid on deposits, and the aggregate amount of Janney’s per Account fee.
  • The Administrator Actual Fee will be compared to or measured against the Administrator’s annual targeted fee, which will be an asset-based fee expressed in a fixed number of basis points on the average daily cash deposits (“Administrator Target Fee”). If, after the end of any month, the cumulative net difference (positive or negative), on a rolling basis, between the amount actually received by the Administrator versus the Administrator Target Fee (“Cumulative Administrator Fee Difference”) reaches or exceeds a predetermined amount, the interest rates to be paid to participating accounts will be appropriately adjusted, by the Administrator, effective the next month, for the purpose of bringing the amounts actually received by the Administrator back in line with the Administrator Target Fee. The adjustment is determined by a formula and is intended to result in the Administrator’s compensation over time to closely approximate or equal the Administrator Target Fee; though it is understood that the Administrator’s actual fees will vary from month to month.

Accordingly, the Administrator may, from month-to-month, temporarily collect more or less than the Administrator Target Fee during certain periods, such as when necessary to help ensure that the amounts paid by the Program Banks during the period are sufficient to cover the applicable disclosed client rates and the aggregate amount of our per Account fee (as described below) for the period. For example, under such circumstances, the Administrator will be entitled to increased fees in future periods to recover the difference with the goal of aligning its actual compensation with the Administrator Target Fee on the deposits. You authorize and direct the Administrator to deduct its fees for its services from the amounts paid by the Program Banks.

Based on the calculation method set forth above the Administrator will calculate the fees due to us. For our services under the Insured Sweep Option to Discretionary Advisory IRA Accounts, including making the program available, we receive a per Account fee each month, however we reserve the right to reduce our fee in months having less than 31 days. Our compensation will vary depending on the FFT Rate as described above; however, it is not affected by the actual amounts held in your Account(s). Although it is generally anticipated that our fees under the program will be offset by the amounts paid by the Program Banks, as discussed above, and you hereby direct the Administrator to collect such fees from the Program Banks and remit such amounts over to us, we reserve the right to withdraw the monthly Account fee, or portion thereof, in the event or to the extent that the amount received from the Program Banks and paid over to us by the Administrator for the period is less than our fee for the same period.

The FFT Rate used to calculate our per Account fee can be expressed as either a single value or a range of values. When the FFT Rate is expressed as a single value, then FFT for purposes of the calculations will equal such value. In time periods, where the FFT Rate is represented as a range, then the FFT for purposes of the above calculations will equal the midpoint of such range rounded to the nearest basis point.

The current FFT Rate can be found here: http://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/openmarket.htm. If an Account is opened during a month, the monthly fee will be prorated for the portion of the month the Account was funded.

The monthly per Account fee will not generally be seen on your statement due to the manner in which we recoup our fee from the Program Banks payments, as discussed above. Janney Financial Advisors do not receive any of the fees received by us from the Program Banks. The Insured Sweep fees may be greater than the fees we receive from other sweep investment options.

The amounts paid to us and the Administrator reduce the interest rate paid on your cash. As with all Advisory Accounts, the fees that Janney receives from the Program Banks are in addition to the advisory fee that you pay your financial professional. This means that Janney earns two layers of fees on the same cash balances in your Janney Discretionary Advisory IRA Account. Therefore, we have an incentive to encourage you to enroll in the Cash Sweep Program.

Accounts which have selected the Money Funds for their Cash Sweep Option or have Deposits in the Money Fund through Insured Sweep Option. For all Money Funds other than Dreyfus Government Cash Management Fund – Institutional Shares, Janney will receive a monthly fee from the Money Fund, or its distributor, for distribution and shareholder services provided by Janney in connection with the sale of Money Funds available under the Money Market Sweep Option. The fee is based on a fixed percentage rate applicable to each Money Fund and the cash invested in each such Money Fund. These fees paid to Janney defray the various costs of offering the Money Market Sweep Option to Janney clients, including those associated with (a) Money Market Sweep Option features, such as the daily sweep arrangement, purchases, redemptions, dividend reinvestments, and transfers; and (b) Money Fund investments, including sub-account, statement preparation and distribution, distribution of Cash Sweep Program materials, and responding to investment-related inquiries.

As described in this section, the Cash Sweep Program creates financial benefits for Janney.

ACCOUNT PROTECTIONS — GENERAL

Your Account at Janney is generally protected, up to applicable limits, by SIPC. This includes free credit balances (i.e., cash) in your Account as a result of cash deposits or the sale of securities which have yet to be “swept” into a Cash Sweep Program option. SIPC currently protects these funds and securities up to $500,000, including $250,000 for claims for cash. We have also arranged for coverage above these limits. In the highly unlikely event that Janney should ever fail and your assets with us not be recovered through properly segregated assets under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) customer protection rule (SEC rule 15c3-3) or under standard SIPC protection limits, this additional insurance covers your account subject to a limit of $24.5 million per client and an aggregate loss limit of $100 million. Excess SIPC insurance for your account is provided through underwriters at Lloyd’s of London. If you maintain more than one account at Janney in separate capacities (i.e., individually, jointly or as a trustee), each account is protected by SIPC and excess SIPC insurance if required. Accounts held in the same capacity per client are combined for the purposes of SIPC protection limits.

SIPC coverage does not cover fluctuations in the market value of your investments. Any securities held in your Account (as opposed to the Program Deposit held by a Program Bank) are investment products, and as such: (i) are not insured by the FDIC; (ii) carry no bank or government guarantees; and (iii) are subject to investment risk, including loss of principal amount invested.

At the time cash is deposited in Deposit Accounts with one or more Program Banks through the Insured Sweep Option, your deposits are eligible, subject to the limitations described herein, to be insured by the FDIC.

1.  INSURED SWEEP PROTECTIONS

Your cash balance awaiting reinvestment is only eligible for FDIC insurance once it is deposited in a Deposit Account at a Program Bank. Cash in the Deposit Accounts at each Program Bank is generally eligible for deposit insurance by the FDIC up to a total of $250,000 principal and accrued interest per depositor, for each account ownership category in most insurable capacities (e.g., individual, joint, etc.) when aggregated with all other deposits held in the same insurable capacity at a given Program Bank. This does not include free credit balances (i.e., cash) in your Account as a result of deposits or the sale of securities which have yet to be “swept” into a Deposit Account at a Program Bank.

Cash deposited in the Deposit Accounts at Program Banks are not subject to market risk and value loss but are subject to the risk of a Program Bank’s failure. In the unlikely event that a Program Bank fails, the balances in the Deposit Accounts are insured by the FDIC up to FDIC deposit insurance coverage limits and are not covered by Janney or SIPC. Under the Insured Sweep Option, your cash balances may be deposited at more than one Program Bank, increasing the potential amount of FDIC insurance available to you.

The Insured Sweep Option seeks to provide up to $2.5 million of FDIC coverage for individual accounts, up to $5.0 million of FDIC coverage for joint accounts, up to $2.5 million for certain retirement accounts, and up to $2.5 million for corporate accounts (the “Maximum Applicable FDIC Deposit Insurance Amount”), subject to the total amount on deposit in an account, applicable FDIC rules, and Program Bank availability. Cash deposited in Deposit Accounts are not eligible for coverage by the SIPC.

Other deposits, including certificates of deposit, which you maintain directly with a Program Bank or through an intermediary (such as Janney or another financial services firm) in the same capacity, regardless of the number of Accounts, will be aggregated with deposits in the Insured Sweep Option for purposes of calculating the FDIC deposit insurance coverage limit. You are responsible for monitoring the total amount of deposits at each Program Bank to determine the extent of FDIC insurance coverage available to you under the Insured Sweep Option.

Once cash equal to the Maximum Applicable FDIC Deposit Insurance Amount has been deposited for you through the Insured Sweep Option in each Program Bank on the Program Bank List, any excess balances will be moved to the Money Fund protected by SIPC.  

The above description of the availability of FDIC insurance for available cash deposited at the Program Bank(s) is not a comprehensive discussion of the FDIC insurance rules that may apply to your situation. Additional FDIC information may be obtained by contacting the FDIC call center at 1-877-ASK-FDIC (1-877-275- 3342, 1-800-925-4618[TDD]), by letter (FDIC, Deposit Insurance Outreach/ Division of Supervision and Consumer Protection, 550 17th Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20129-9990), or by accessing the FDIC website at fdic.gov.

2.  MONEY MARKET SWEEP PROTECTIONS

Money Funds are registered with the SEC pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940, which imposes special rules on such funds. Money Funds invest in high quality, short-term securities and seek to maintain a stable net asset value, but are subject to market risks and potential loss of value. Prior to or upon investing in a Money Fund you will receive a prospectus describing the Money Fund. You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of each Money Fund carefully before investing. This and other information can be found in the Money Fund’s prospectus or summary prospectus. Assets invested in Money Funds are not held in bank accounts nor are they deposits of, insured or guaranteed by, the U.S. government, any financial institution, the FDIC or the Federal Reserve Board. Investments in Money Funds are covered by SIPC.

Visit www.sipc.org for more information. Although a Money Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in a Money Fund. Yields fluctuate and past performance is no guarantee of future results.
