In 1988, Lee Financial Group Hawaii created the Hawaii Municipal Fund (SURFX), a State of Hawaii tax-free*, no-load mutual fund. As kamaaina, we all want our home to be the best place to live, work and play. One way we can do this is by investing in Hawaii municipal bonds. Municipal bonds are used to build or improve hospitals, schools, highways and other local projects that make our home a better place to live. Investing in these bonds provides the opportunity to earn federal and state tax-free income*.
The Fund seeks to provide a high level of current income exempt from federal and Hawaii state income taxes*, consistent with preservation of capital and prudent investment management.
The Fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets, including borrowings for investment purposes, in a portfolio of primarily investment grade municipal securities issued by or on behalf of the State of Hawaii or any of its political subdivisions or agencies that pay interest that is exempt from regular federal and State of Hawaii income taxes*. Its dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity is expected to be 10 years or more. The Fund is non-diversified.

The size and complexity of the municipal securities market make it difficult for individuals to assemble a diversified portfolio. Purchasing a mutual fund spreads your dollars over a number of investments rather than just one. This helps to prevent investors from putting all of their eggs into one basket.
