While the Adviser and its affiliates currently do not anticipate terminating or increasing these arrangements prior to the Termination Date, these arrangements may only be terminated or the Fee Limit increased prior to the Termination Date with the agreement of the Fund's Board of Trustees.
Example
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your Shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that operating expenses are as shown in the table above and remain the same. Although your actual costs and returns may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year $ 87
3 Years $ 271
5 Years $ 471
10 Years $1,049
RISK/RETURN SUMMARY: INVESTMENTS, RISKS and PERFORMANCE
What are the Fund's Main Investment Strategies?
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund invests in a portfolio of securities maturing in 397 days or less.
1

Table of Contents
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. The types of securities in which the Fund may principally invest include: (a) tax-exempt securities such as the following types, some of which may be subject to credit enhancement: variable rate demand instruments, municipal notes, general obligation bonds, special revenue bonds, private activity bonds and tax-exempt commercial paper; and (b) interests in securities of other investment companies.
In pursuing its investment objective and implementing its investment strategies, the Fund will comply with Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (“Rule 2a-7”). The Fund's investment adviser may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to seek appropriate risk adjusted returns and provide diversification.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
What are the Main Risks of Investing in the Fund?
All mutual funds take investment risks. Therefore, even though the Fund is a money market fund that seeks to maintain a stable NAV, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. The primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund, or reduce the Fund's daily dividends include:
Issuer Credit Risk. It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Counterparty Credit Risk. A party to a transaction involving the Fund may fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategies.
Interest Rate Risk. Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) generally fall when interest rates rise. Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities.
Call Risk. The Fund's performance may be adversely affected by the possibility that an issuer of a security held by the Fund may redeem the security prior to maturity at a price below or above its current market value.
Sector Risk. A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities.
Tax Risk. In order to be tax exempt, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss.
Credit Enhancement Risk. The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund.
Risk Associated with Investing Share Purchase Proceeds. On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the Fund's portfolio, or if the Fund holds cash, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.

Table of Contents
Risk Associated with use of Amortized Cost. In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce to the extent practicable such dilution or unfair results.
Additional Factors Affecting Yield. There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary.
California Risk. Because the Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in securities of California issuers, an investment in the Fund may involve additional risks compared to a fully diversified money market fund that invests in multiple states, and the Fund's performance also may be negatively impacted by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the credit worthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy. California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world with major components including high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's budgetary and fiscal operations face certain structural impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance.
Technology Risk. The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
The Shares offered by this Prospectus are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the U.S. government, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.

FUND MANAGEMENT
The Fund's Investment Adviser is Federated Investment Management Company.
Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The minimum initial investment amount for the Fund's SS class is generally $10,000 and there is no minimum subsequent investment amount. The minimum investment amount for Systematic Investment Programs is $50.
You may purchase, redeem or exchange Shares of the Fund on any day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open. Shares may be purchased through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund, by wire or by check. Please note that certain purchase restrictions may apply. Redeem or exchange Shares through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund by telephone at 1-800-341-7400 or by mail.
TAX INFORMATION
It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be tax exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes (except for California taxes, to the extent derived from California tax-exempt investments and eligible for tax-exempt treatment under California law). Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Any Fund distributions of capital gains are taxable at applicable capital gains rates. The Fund is generally not a suitable investment for retirement accounts.
Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and/or its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund Shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary's website for more information.
What are the Fund's Investment Strategies?
While there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective, it endeavors to do so by following the strategies and policies described in this Prospectus.
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities maturing in 397 days or less. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT).
Federated Investment Management Company (“Adviser”) actively manages the Fund's portfolio, seeking to limit the credit risk taken by the Fund and to select investments, including securities subject to the AMT with appropriate risk-adjusted returns. The Adviser also may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to provide diversification.
The Adviser performs a fundamental credit analysis to develop an approved database of issuers and securities that meet the Adviser's standards for minimal credit risk. The Adviser monitors the credit risks of all portfolio securities on an ongoing basis by reviewing periodic financial data and ratings of nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (NRSROs).
The Adviser targets a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity (DWAM) range based upon its interest rate outlook and the tax-exempt securities available. The Adviser formulates its interest rate outlook by analyzing a variety of factors such as (among others): current and expected U.S. economic growth; current and expected interest rates and inflation; and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy. The Adviser structures the portfolio by investing in variable rate demand instruments

Table of Contents
and municipal notes, as well as other permissible investments as described in this Prospectus and in the Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI). The Adviser generally shortens the portfolio's maturity when it expects interest rates to rise and extends the maturity when it expects interest rates to fall. This strategy seeks to enhance the returns from favorable interest rate changes and reduce the effect of unfavorable changes.
The Fund will: (1) maintain a DWAM of 60 days or less; and (2) maintain a weighted average life (WAL) of 120 days or less. Certain of the securities in which the Fund invests may pay interest at a rate that is periodically adjusted (“Adjustable Rate Securities”). For purposes of calculating DWAM, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security generally will be the period remaining until its next interest rate adjustment. For purposes of calculating WAL, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security will be its stated final maturity, without regard to interest rate adjustments; accordingly, the 120-day WAL limitation could serve to limit the Fund's ability to invest in Adjustable Rate Securities.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
Temporary Investments
The Fund may temporarily depart from its principal investment strategies by investing its assets in taxable securities or holding cash. It may do this in response to unusual circumstances, such as: adverse market, economic or other conditions (for example, to help avoid potential losses, or during periods when there is a shortage of appropriate tax-exempt securities); to maintain liquidity to meet shareholder redemptions; or to accommodate cash inflows. It is possible that such temporary investments could affect the Fund's investment returns. If the Fund invests in taxable securities, it may receive and distribute taxable income to investors and to that extent to fail to meet its investment objectives.
What are the Fund's Principal Investments?
The following provides general information on the Fund's principal investments. The Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI) provides information about the Fund's non-principal investments and may provide additional information about the Fund's principal investments.
TAX-EXEMPT SECURITIES
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. Fixed-income securities pay interest, dividends or distributions at a specified rate. The rate may be a fixed percentage of the principal or adjusted periodically. In addition, the issuer of a fixed-income security must repay the principal amount of the security, normally within a specified time. Typically, states, counties, cities and other political subdivisions and authorities issue tax-exempt securities. The market categorizes tax-exempt securities by their source of repayment. Certain of these tax-exempt securities may be subject to credit enhancement. The following describes the principal types of tax-exempt securities in which the Fund may invest:
Variable Rate Demand Instruments (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Variable rate demand instruments are tax-exempt securities that require the issuer or a third party, such as a dealer or bank (the “Demand Provider”), to repurchase the security for its face value upon demand. The securities also pay interest at a variable rate intended to cause the securities to trade at their face value. Some variable rate demand instruments are “conditional,” so that the occurrence of certain conditions discharges the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security. Other variable rate demand instruments are “unconditional,” so that there are no conditions under which the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security can terminate. The Fund treats variable rate demand instruments as short-term securities even though their maturity may extend beyond 397 days because, within 397 days, their variable interest rate adjusts in response to changes in market rates and the repayment of their principal amount can be demanded. Certain variable rate demand instruments that may be invested in by the Fund, referred to as “synthetic” variable rate demand instruments, have certain features, such as call features, that make it possible that the Fund will realize capital gains.

Table of Contents
Municipal Notes (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Municipal notes are short-term, tax-exempt securities. Many municipalities issue such notes to fund their current operations before collecting taxes or other municipal revenues. Municipalities may also issue notes to fund capital projects prior to issuing long-term bonds. The issuers typically repay the notes at the end of their fiscal year, either with taxes, other revenues or proceeds from newly issued notes or bonds.
General Obligation Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
General obligation bonds are supported by the issuer's power to exact property or other taxes. The issuer must impose and collect taxes sufficient to pay principal and interest on the bonds. However, the issuer's authority to impose additional taxes may be limited by its charter or state law.
Special Revenue Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Special revenue bonds are payable solely from specific revenues received by the issuer such as specific taxes, assessments, tolls or fees. Bondholders may not collect from the municipality's general taxes or revenues. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to build a toll road, and pledge the tolls to repay the bonds. Therefore, a shortfall in the tolls normally would result in a default on the bonds, or in certain cases, may result in a reduction in payments received in respect of the bonds.
Private Activity Bonds (A Type of Special Revenue Bond)
Private activity bonds are special revenue bonds used to finance private projects. A certain percentage of the proceeds from a private activity bond is used for a private business use or a certain percentage of the debt service regarding a private activity bond is paid directly or indirectly from a private business use. A private business use is a trade or business carried on by any person or entity other than a governmental unit. Private activity bonds are secured primarily by revenues derived from loan repayments or lease payments due from the private entity, which may or may not be guaranteed by a parent company or otherwise secured. Private activity bonds generally are not secured by a pledge of the taxing power of the issuer of such bonds. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to finance a new factory to improve its local economy. The municipality would lend the proceeds from its bonds to the company using the factory, and the company would agree to make loan payments sufficient to cover interest and principal payments on the bonds. The bonds would be payable from the company's loan payments, and generally not from any other revenues of the municipality. Therefore, any default of the loan normally would result in a default on the bonds.
Types of private activity bonds include, for example: bonds issued to obtain funds to provide water, sewage and solid waste facilities, qualified residential rental projects, certain local electric, gas and other heating and cooling facilities, qualified hazardous waste facilities, high-speed intercity rail facilities, certain airports, docks, wharves and mass transportation facilities and qualified mortgages; qualified student loan bonds; qualified redevelopment bonds; and bonds used for certain organizations exempt from federal income taxation (qualified 501(c)(3) bonds).
The interest on many types of private activity bonds is subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund may invest in bonds subject to AMT.
Tax-Exempt Commercial Paper (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Tax-exempt commercial paper is an obligation issued by a tax-exempt issuer with a maturity of generally less than nine months. Tax-exempt issuers may issue commercial paper to pay for current expenditures or other permissible activities. Tax-exempt issuers may constantly reissue their commercial paper and use the proceeds (or other sources) to repay maturing paper. If the tax-exempt issuer cannot continue to obtain liquidity in this fashion, and if there is not another available source of liquidity, its commercial paper may default or there may be a reduction in payments received in repayment of the tax-exempt commercial paper.
Credit Enhancement
The Fund may invest in tax-exempt securities with credit enhancement. Credit enhancement consists of an arrangement in which a company agrees to pay amounts due on a fixed-income security if the issuer defaults. In some cases, the company providing credit enhancement makes all payments directly to the security holders and receives reimbursement from the issuer. Normally, the credit enhancer has greater financial resources and liquidity than the issuer. For this reason, the Adviser may evaluate the credit risk of a fixed-income security based solely upon its credit enhancement.
Common types of credit enhancement include guarantees, letters of credit, bond insurance and surety bonds. Credit enhancement also includes arrangements where securities or other liquid assets secure payment of a fixed-income security. If a default occurs, these assets may be sold and the proceeds paid to the security's holders. Either form of credit enhancement reduces credit risks by providing another source of payment for a fixed-income security.

Table of Contents
Investing in Securities of Other Investment Companies
The Fund may invest its assets in shares of other investment companies as an efficient means of implementing its investment strategies and/or managing its uninvested cash. These investments may include shares of an affiliated money market fund or preferred shares of a closed-end fund that are eligible for purchase by money market funds (generally, because such preferred shares are structured as unconditional demand instruments with a third-party Demand Provider). Other investment companies are managed independently of the Fund and incur additional fees and/or expenses which would, therefore, be borne indirectly by the Fund in connection with any such investment. However, the Adviser believes that the benefits and efficiencies of this approach should outweigh the potential additional fees and/or expenses. The Fund may invest in money market securities directly.
Investment Ratings
The securities in which the Fund invests must be rated in one of the two highest short-term rating categories (without regard for gradations or sub-categories) by one or more NRSROs or be deemed by the Adviser to be of comparable quality to securities having such ratings.
The Fund will rely on the two highest ratings given to a security by the NRSROs for purposes of complying with this requirement. If one or both of the two highest ratings are in the second highest short-term rating category, the security is treated as a Second Tier Security. Generally, Rule 2a-7 prohibits the Fund from investing more than 3% of its assets in Second Tier Securities. The Fund complies with these rating requirements at the time a security is acquired. If a security is downgraded to Second Tier after its acquisition, the Fund may continue to hold the security even if the portfolio exceeds Rule 2a-7's limits on Second Tier Securities. Other factors, such as substantial redemptions, may cause the Fund's portfolio to exceed Rule 2a-7 limits on the acquisition of securities. The Fund may continue to hold securities in excess of these limits, even if the Fund has the right to tender the security for purchase for its amortized cost value.
What are the Specific Risks of Investing in the Fund?
The following provides general information on the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments. These are the primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund or reduce the Fund's daily dividends. Any additional risks associated with the Fund's non-principal investments are described in the Fund's SAI. The Fund's SAI also may provide additional information about the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments.
ISSUER Credit Risk
It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Many fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) receive credit ratings from NRSROs such as Fitch Rating Service, Moody's Investor Services, Inc. and Standard & Poor's that assign ratings to securities by assessing the likelihood of an issuer and/or guarantor default. Higher credit ratings correspond to lower perceived credit risk and lower credit ratings correspond to higher perceived credit risk. Credit ratings may be upgraded or downgraded from time to time as an NRSRO's assessment of the financial condition of a party obligated to make payments with respect to such securities and credit risk changes. The impact of any credit rating downgrade can be uncertain. Credit rating downgrades may lead to increased interest rates and volatility in financial markets, which in turn could negatively affect the value of the Fund's portfolio holdings, its share price and its investment performance. Credit ratings are not a guarantee of quality. Credit ratings may lag behind the current financial conditions of the issuer and/or guarantor and do not provide assurance against default or other loss of money. Credit ratings do not protect against a decline in the value of a security. If a security has not received a rating, the Fund must rely entirely upon the Adviser's credit assessment.
Fixed-income securities generally compensate for greater credit risk by paying interest at a higher rate. The difference between the yield of a security and the yield of a U.S. Treasury security or other appropriate benchmark with a comparable maturity (the “spread”) measures the additional interest paid for risk. Spreads may increase generally in response to adverse economic or market conditions. A security's spread may also increase if the security's rating is lowered, or the security is perceived to have an increased credit risk. An increase in the spread will cause the price of the security to decline if interest rates remain unchanged.
Finally, the securities in which the Fund invests may include those issued by governments, including, for example, a state or local government, or other political subdivisions or authorities, or directly or indirectly supported by taxes, assessments, tolls, fees or other revenue collected by or otherwise derived by or through such issuers. Such securities, like other securities that may be invested in by the Fund, have credit risk. Like other issuers, there is no guarantee that the issuers of such securities will have sufficient revenues to satisfy their obligations (such as, for example, the payment of interest or principal when due) with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. For example, in the case of certain of these issuers, legal,
7

Table of Contents
economic, political or other developments may raise impairments (such as, for example, limitations under applicable law on the issuer's authority to raise taxes, prolonged budgetary processes, declining real estate values and declining tax revenues) to such an issuer's budgetary flexibility and liquidity, and its ability to satisfy its obligations with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. Such impairments may cause a downgrade in the credit ratings of such an issuer, or the securities issued or supported by it, and may cause such an issuer to defer payment of certain obligations, reduce or eliminate appropriations and/or default on its obligations. In such situations, the credit risk of such securities invested in by the Fund will increase. Like other issuers and securities, the likelihood that the credit risk associated with such issuers and such securities will increase is greater during times of economic stress and financial instability. As a result, in such situations, there would be heightened risk that there could be an interruption in payments to bondholders in some cases. There also could be a reduction in the market value of the bonds held by the Fund, which could adversely affect the Fund's net asset value or the distributions paid by the Fund.
COUNTERPARTY CREDIT RISK
Counterparty credit risk includes the possibility that a party to a transaction involving the Fund will fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategy.
Interest Rate Risk
Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) rise and fall in response to changes in the interest rate paid by similar securities. Generally, when interest rates rise, prices of fixed-income securities fall. However, market factors, such as the demand for particular fixed-income securities, may cause the price of certain fixed-income securities to fall, while the prices of other securities rise or remain unchanged.
Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing short-term securities.
Certain factors, such as the presence of call features, may cause a particular fixed-income security, or the Fund as a whole, to exhibit less sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Certain of the Fund's investments may also be valued, in part, by reference to the relative relationship between interest rates on tax-exempt securities and taxable securities, respectively. When the market for tax-exempt securities underperforms (or outperforms) the market for taxable securities, the value of these investments may be negatively affected (or positively affected).
Call Risk
Call risk is the possibility that an issuer may redeem a fixed-income security (including a tax-exempt security) before maturity (a “call”) at a price below or above its current market price. An increase in the likelihood of a call may reduce the security's price.
If a fixed-income security is called, the Fund may have to reinvest the proceeds in other fixed-income securities with lower interest rates, higher credit risks or other less favorable characteristics.
Sector Risk
A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities. Developments affecting companies with similar characteristics might include changes in interest rates, changes in economic cycles affecting credit losses and regulatory changes.
TAX RISK
In order to pay interest that is exempt from federal or state/local regular income tax, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable.
Changes or proposed changes in federal, state or local tax laws may cause the prices of tax-exempt securities to fall and/or may affect the tax-exempt status of the securities in which the Fund invests. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.

Table of Contents
LIQUIDITY RISK
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss. An inability to sell portfolio securities may result from adverse market developments or investor perceptions regarding the portfolio securities. While the Fund endeavors to maintain a high level of liquidity in its portfolio so that it can satisfy redemption requests, the Fund's ability to sell portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting particular issuers or credit enhancement providers, or due to general market conditions and a lack of willing buyers.
CREDIT ENHANCEMENT RISK
The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). Credit enhancement is designed to help assure timely payment of the security; it does not protect the Fund against losses caused by declines in a security's value due to changes in market conditions. Securities subject to credit enhancement generally would be assigned a lower credit rating if the rating were based primarily on the credit quality of the issuer without regard to the credit enhancement. If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded.
A single enhancement provider may provide credit enhancement to more than one of the Fund's investments. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund, as the Fund may invest in securities credit enhanced by banks or by bond insurers without limit. Bond insurers that provide credit enhancement for large segments of the fixed-income markets, including the municipal bond market, may be more susceptible to being downgraded or defaulting during recessions or similar periods of economic stress.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH INVESTING SHARE PURCHASE PROCEEDS
On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the Fund holds cash, or if the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the portfolio, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. The larger the amount that must be invested or the greater the difference between the yield of the securities purchased and the yield of the existing investments, the greater the impact will be on the yield of the Fund. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF AMORTIZED COST
In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce, to the extent practicable, such dilution or unfair results, including, but not limited to, considering suspending redemption of Shares and liquidating the Fund under Rule 22e-3 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
ADDITIONAL FACTORS AFFECTING YIELD
There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary. A low interest rate environment may prevent the Fund from providing a positive yield or paying Fund expenses out of current income and could impair the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV. The Fund's yield could also be negatively affected (both in absolute terms, and as compared to other money market funds) by aspects of its investment program (for example, its investment policies, strategies or limitations) or its operational policies (for example, its cut-off time for purchases and redemptions of Shares).
California Risk
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, the Fund may be subject to additional risks compared to a money market fund that invests in multiple states.
California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Major components include high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's location is a benefit to its trade component; however, but also leads to above average exposure to international economic conditions.
9

Table of Contents
California's financial operations face rather significant structural budget impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance. Past periods of dramatic revenue underperformance have resulted in significant budgetary deficits and reduced liquidity.
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, its performance also may be negatively affected by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the creditworthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy.
technology Risk
The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
What Do Shares Cost?
CALCULATION OF NET ASSET VALUE
The Fund attempts to stabilize the NAV of its Shares at $1.00 by valuing the portfolio securities using the amortized cost method. In addition, for regulatory purposes, the Fund calculates a market-based NAV per Share on a periodic basis. The Fund cannot guarantee that its NAV will always remain at $1.00 per Share. The Fund does not charge a front-end sales charge.
You can purchase, redeem or exchange Shares any day the NYSE is open (a “Regular Business Day”). You may also be able to purchase and redeem (but not exchange) Shares on certain days that the NYSE is closed on an unscheduled basis due to unforeseen or emergency circumstances, if the Fund's Board determines to allow Fund Share transactions on such days (a “Special Trading Day”). If the Fund declares a Special Trading Day, information regarding shareholder trading activities for the Special Trading Day (such as when NAV, and entitlement to that day's dividend, will be determined) will be available by calling the Fund at 1-800-341-7400 and will be posted on Federated's website at FederatedInvestors.com. The information set forth in this Prospectus regarding times relevant to NAV determination and dividend entitlement applies only to Regular Business Days. Please note that the times that might be specified for NAV determination and dividend entitlement on a Special Trading Day would not necessarily be the same as set forth in this Prospectus with respect to Regular Business Days. Although Federated will attempt to make such information available in advance of a particular Special Trading Day, given the nature of Special Trading Days, it may not be able to do so until the morning of the Special Trading Day.
When the Fund receives your transaction request in proper form (as described in this Prospectus), it is processed at the next determined NAV. NAV is determined at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and as of the end of regular trading on the NYSE (normally, 4:00 p.m.) Eastern time each day the NYSE is open. The times as of when NAV is determined, and when orders must be placed, may be changed as permitted by the SEC.
How is the Fund Sold?
The Fund offers five Share classes: Service Shares, Institutional Shares, Cash II Shares, Capital Shares and Cash Series Shares, each representing interests in a single portfolio of securities. This Prospectus relates only to Service Shares. All Share classes have different expenses which affect their performance. The Institutional Shares, which are offered by separate prospectus, may be preferable for shareholders purchasing $25,000 or more. Contact your financial intermediary or call 1-800-341-7400 for more information concerning the other classes.
The Fund's Distributor, Federated Securities Corp., markets the Shares described in this Prospectus to financial institutions acting in an agency or fiduciary capacity, or to individuals, directly or through financial intermediaries. The Fund may not be a suitable investment for retirement plans or for non-California taxpayers because it invests in California tax-exempt securities. Under the Distributor's Contract with the Fund, the Distributor offers Shares on a continuous, best-efforts basis. The Distributor is a subsidiary of Federated Investors, Inc. (“Federated”).
Payments to Financial Intermediaries
The Fund and its affiliated service providers may pay fees as described below to financial intermediaries (such as broker-dealers, banks, investment advisers or third-party administrators) whose customers are shareholders of the Fund.
10

Table of Contents
SERVICE FEES
The Fund may pay Service Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to financial intermediaries or to Federated Shareholder Services Company (FSSC), a subsidiary of Federated, for providing services to shareholders and maintaining shareholder accounts. Intermediaries that receive Service Fees may include a company affiliated with management of Federated. If a financial intermediary receives Service Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees on that same account.
ACCOUNT ADMINISTRATION FEES
The Fund may pay Account Administration Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to banks that are not registered as broker-dealers or investment advisers for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Account Administration Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Service Fees or Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
RECORDKEEPING FEES
The Fund may pay Recordkeeping Fees on an average-net-assets basis or on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing recordkeeping services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Recordkeeping Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees or Networking Fees on that same account.
NETWORKING FEES
The Fund may reimburse Networking Fees on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders on certain non-omnibus accounts. If a financial intermediary receives Networking Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS TO FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES
The Distributor may pay, out of its own resources, amounts (including items of material value) to certain financial intermediaries that support the sale of Shares or provide services to Fund shareholders. The amounts of these payments could be significant, and may create an incentive for the financial intermediary or its employees or associated persons to recommend or sell Shares of the Fund to you. In some cases, such payments may be made by or funded from the resources of companies affiliated with the Distributor (including the Adviser). These payments are not reflected in the fees and expenses listed in the fee table section of the Fund's Prospectus and described above because they are not paid by the Fund.
These payments are negotiated and may be based on such factors as: the number or value of Shares that the financial intermediary sells or may sell; the value of client assets invested; or the type and nature of services or support furnished by the financial intermediary. These payments may be in addition to payments, as described above, made by the Fund to the financial intermediary. In connection with these payments, the financial intermediary may elevate the prominence or profile of the Fund and/or other Federated funds, within the financial intermediary's organization by, for example, placement on a list of preferred or recommended funds and/or granting the Distributor preferential or enhanced opportunities to promote the funds in various ways within the financial intermediary's organization. You can ask your financial intermediary for information about any payments it receives from the Distributor or the Fund and any services provided.
How to Purchase Shares
You may purchase Shares through a financial intermediary, directly from the Fund or through an exchange from another Federated fund. The Fund reserves the right to reject any request to purchase or exchange Shares. New investors must submit a completed New Account Form.
The minimum initial investment for Fund Shares is generally $10,000. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount.
An account may be opened with a smaller amount as long as the $10,000 minimum is reached within 90 days. An institutional investor's minimum investment is calculated by combining all accounts it maintains with the Fund. Financial intermediaries may impose higher or lower minimum investment requirements on their customers than those imposed by the Fund. Keep in mind that financial intermediaries may charge you fees for their services in connection with your Share transactions.
THROUGH A FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARY
Submit your purchase order to your financial intermediary. Financial intermediaries are responsible for promptly submitting purchase orders and payment to the Fund by electronic means permitted by the Fund, or according to the instructions in the sections “By Telephone” or “By Mail” below.

If you request a redemption of Shares recently purchased by check (including a cashier's check or certified check), money order, bank draft or ACH, your redemption proceeds may not be made available for up to seven calendar days to allow the Fund to collect payment on the instrument used to purchase such Shares. If the purchase instrument does not clear, your purchase order will be canceled and you will be responsible for any losses incurred by the Fund as a result of your canceled order.
Any attempt to redeem Shares through checkwriting or debit card before the purchase instrument has cleared will be automatically rejected.
In addition, the right of redemption may be suspended, or the payment of proceeds may be delayed, during any period:
when the NYSE is closed, other than customary weekend and holiday closings;
when trading on the NYSE is restricted, as determined by the SEC;
in which an emergency exists, as determined by the SEC, so that disposal of the Fund's investments or determination of its NAV is not reasonably practicable; or
in which there are emergency conditions, including liquidation of the Fund, as provided in Section 22(e), and rules thereunder, of the Investment Company Act of 1940.

Table of Contents
You will not accrue interest or dividends on uncashed redemption checks from the Fund if those checks are undeliverable and returned to the Fund.
EXCHANGE PRIVILEGE
You may exchange Shares of the Fund for shares of any Federated fund or share class that does not have a stated sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge, except Federated Liberty U.S. Government Money Market Trust and R class. To do this, you must:
ensure that the account registrations are identical;
meet any applicable minimum initial investment requirements; and
receive a prospectus for the fund into which you wish to exchange.
An exchange is treated as a redemption and a subsequent purchase, and is a taxable transaction. The Fund may modify or terminate the exchange privilege at any time.
Systematic Withdrawal/Exchange Program
You may automatically redeem or exchange Shares. The minimum amount for all new or revised systematic redemptions or exchanges of Shares is $50 per transaction per fund. Complete the appropriate section of the New Account Form or an Account Service Options Form or contact your financial intermediary or the Fund. Your account value must meet the minimum initial investment amount at the time the program is established. This program may reduce, and eventually deplete, your account. Payments should not be considered yield or income.
CHECKWRITING
You may request checks to redeem your Fund Shares. Your account will continue to receive the daily dividend declared on the Shares being redeemed until the check is presented for payment.
DEBIT CARD
You may request a debit card account that allows you to redeem Shares. There is an annual fee for this service that the Fund will automatically deduct from your account.
ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS
Telephone Transactions
The Fund will record your telephone instructions. If the Fund does not follow reasonable procedures, it may be liable for losses due to unauthorized or fraudulent telephone instructions.
Share Certificates
The Fund does not issue share certificates.
Account and Share Information
ACCOUNT ACTIVITY
You will receive periodic statements reporting all account activity, including systematic transactions, dividends and capital gains paid.
DIVIDENDS AND CAPITAL GAINS
The Fund declares any dividends daily and pays them monthly to shareholders.
The Fund does not expect to realize any capital gains or losses. However, the Fund may realize capital gains on certain securities, such as synthetic variable rate demand instruments, that may be redeemed in certain circumstances at a premium to their face value. If capital gains or losses were to occur, they could result in an increase or decrease in dividends. The Fund pays any capital gains at least annually, and may make such special distributions of dividends and capital gains as may be necessary to meet applicable regulatory requirements. Your dividends and capital gains distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional Shares without a sales charge, unless you elect cash payments. Dividends may also be reinvested without sales charges in shares of any class of any other Federated fund of which you are already a shareholder.
If you have elected to receive dividends and/or capital gain distributions in cash, and your check is returned by the postal or other delivery service as “undeliverable,” or you do not respond to mailings from Federated with regard to uncashed distribution checks, your distribution option will automatically be converted to having all dividends and capital gains reinvested in additional Shares. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks. See “Tax Information” below for information on the tax consequences of the Fund realizing a capital gain.
15

Table of Contents
Under the federal securities laws, the Fund is required to provide a notice to shareholders regarding the source of distributions made by the Fund if such distributions are from sources other than ordinary investment income. In addition, important information regarding the Fund's distributions, if applicable, is available via the link to the Fund and share class name at www.Federatedinvestors.com/FundInformation.
ACCOUNTS WITH LOW BALANCES
Federated reserves the right to close accounts if redemptions or exchanges cause the account balance to fall below $10,000. Before an account is closed, you will be notified and allowed at least 30 days to purchase additional Shares to meet the minimum.
TAX INFORMATION
The Fund sends an IRS Form 1099 and an annual statement of your account activity to assist you in completing your federal, state and local tax returns. It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes, although the Fund's dividends will be exempt from the California taxes to the extent they are derived from interest on obligations exempt from such taxes. Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Distributions of net short-term capital gains are taxable to you as ordinary income. Distributions of net long-term capital gains are taxable to you as long-term capital gains regardless of how long you have owned your Shares. Capital gains and non-exempt dividends are taxable whether paid in cash or reinvested in the Fund. Redemptions and exchanges are taxable sales. Please consult your tax adviser regarding your federal, state and local tax liability.
FREQUENT TRADING POLICIES
Given the short-term nature of the Fund's investments and its use of the amortized cost method for calculating the NAV of Fund Shares, the Fund does not anticipate that in the normal case frequent or short-term trading into and out of the Fund will have significant adverse consequences for the Fund and its shareholders. For this reason and because the Fund is intended to be used as a liquid short-term investment, the Fund's Board has not adopted policies or procedures to monitor or discourage frequent or short-term trading of the Fund's Shares. Regardless of their frequency or short-term nature, purchases and redemptions of Fund Shares can have adverse effects on the management of the Fund's portfolio and its performance.
Other funds in the Federated family of funds may impose monitoring policies. Under normal market conditions, such monitoring policies are designed to protect the funds being monitored and their shareholders, and the operation of such policies and shareholder investments under such monitoring are not expected to have a materially adverse impact on the Federated funds or their shareholders. If you plan to exchange your Fund Shares for shares of another Federated fund, please read the prospectus of that other Federated fund for more information.
PORTFOLIO HOLDINGS INFORMATION

Who Manages the Fund?
The Board governs the Fund. The Board selects and oversees the Adviser, Federated Investment Management Company. The Adviser manages the Fund's assets, including buying and selling portfolio securities. Federated Advisory Services Company (FASC), an affiliate of the Adviser, provides certain support services to the Adviser. The fee for these services is paid by the Adviser and not by the Fund.
The address of the Adviser and FASC is Federated Investors Tower, 1001 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-3779.
The Adviser and other subsidiaries of Federated advise approximately 135 equity, fixed-income and money market mutual funds as well as a variety of other pooled investment vehicles, private investment companies and customized separately managed accounts (including non-U.S./offshore funds) which totaled approximately $376.1 billion in assets as of December 31, 2013. Federated was established in 1955 and is one of the largest investment managers in the United States with approximately 1,400 employees. Federated provides investment products to approximately 6,000 investment professionals and institutions.
The Adviser advises approximately 106 fixed-income and money market mutual funds (including sub-advised funds) and private investment companies, which totaled approximately $254.4 billion in assets as of December 31, 2013.
ADVISORY FEES
The Fund's investment advisory contract provides for payment to the Adviser of an annual investment advisory fee of 0.40% of the Fund's average daily net assets. The Adviser may voluntarily waive a portion of its fee or reimburse the Fund for certain operating expenses. The Adviser and its affiliates have also agreed to certain “Fee Limits” as described in the footnote to the “Risk/Return Summary: Fees and Expenses” table found in the “Fund Summary” section of the Prospectus.
A discussion of the Board's review of the Fund's investment advisory contract is available in the Fund's shareholder reports as they become available.

Appendix A: Hypothetical Investment and Expense Information
The following chart provides additional hypothetical information about the effect of the Fund's expenses, including investment advisory fees and other Fund costs, on the Fund's assumed returns over a 10-year period. The chart shows the estimated expenses that would be incurred in respect of a hypothetical investment of $10,000, assuming a 5% return each year, and no redemption of Shares. The chart also assumes that the Fund's annual expense ratio stays the same throughout the 10-year period and that all dividends and distributions are reinvested. The annual expense ratio used in the chart is the same as stated in the “Fees and Expenses” table of this Prospectus (and thus may not reflect any fee waiver or expense reimbursement currently in effect). The maximum amount of any sales charge that might be imposed on the purchase of Shares (and deducted from the hypothetical initial investment of $10,000; the “Front-End Sales Charge”) is reflected in the “Hypothetical Expenses” column. The hypothetical investment information does not reflect the effect of charges (if any) normally applicable to redemptions of Shares (e.g., deferred sales charges, redemption fees). Mutual fund returns, as well as fees and expenses, may fluctuate over time, and your actual investment returns and total expenses may be higher or lower than those shown below.

RISK/RETURN SUMMARY: INVESTMENTS, RISKS and PERFORMANCE
What are the Fund's Main Investment Strategies?
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund invests in a portfolio of securities maturing in 397 days or less.
1

Table of Contents
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. The types of securities in which the Fund may principally invest include: (a) tax-exempt securities such as the following types, some of which may be subject to credit enhancement: variable rate demand instruments, municipal notes, general obligation bonds, special revenue bonds, private activity bonds and tax-exempt commercial paper; and (b) interests in securities of other investment companies.
In pursuing its investment objective and implementing its investment strategies, the Fund will comply with Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (“Rule 2a-7”). The Fund's investment adviser may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to seek appropriate risk adjusted returns and provide diversification.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
What are the Main Risks of Investing in the Fund?
All mutual funds take investment risks. Therefore, even though the Fund is a money market fund that seeks to maintain a stable NAV, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. The primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund, or reduce the Fund's daily dividends include:
Issuer Credit Risk. It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Counterparty Credit Risk. A party to a transaction involving the Fund may fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategies.
Interest Rate Risk. Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) generally fall when interest rates rise. Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities.
Call Risk. The Fund's performance may be adversely affected by the possibility that an issuer of a security held by the Fund may redeem the security prior to maturity at a price below or above its current market value.
Sector Risk. A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities.
Tax Risk. In order to be tax exempt, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss.
Credit Enhancement Risk. The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund.
Risk Associated with Investing Share Purchase Proceeds. On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the Fund's portfolio, or if the Fund holds cash, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.

Table of Contents
Risk Associated with use of Amortized Cost. In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce to the extent practicable such dilution or unfair results.
Additional Factors Affecting Yield. There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary.
California Risk. Because the Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in securities of California issuers, an investment in the Fund may involve additional risks compared to a fully diversified money market fund that invests in multiple states, and the Fund's performance also may be negatively impacted by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the credit worthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy. California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world with major components including high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's budgetary and fiscal operations face certain structural impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance.
Technology Risk. The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
The Shares offered by this Prospectus are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the U.S. government, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.

FUND MANAGEMENT
The Fund's Investment Adviser is Federated Investment Management Company.
Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The minimum initial investment amount for the Fund's IS class is generally $25,000 and there is no minimum subsequent investment amount. The minimum investment amount for Systematic Investment Programs is $50.
You may purchase, redeem or exchange Shares of the Fund on any day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open. Shares may be purchased through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund, by wire or by check. Please note that certain purchase restrictions may apply. Redeem or exchange Shares through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund by telephone at 1-800-341-7400 or by mail.
TAX INFORMATION
It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be tax exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes (except for California taxes, to the extent derived from California tax-exempt investments and eligible for tax-exempt treatment under California law). Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Any Fund distributions of capital gains are taxable at applicable capital gains rates. The Fund is generally not a suitable investment for retirement accounts.
Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and/or its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund Shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary's website for more information.
What are the Fund's Investment Strategies?
While there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective, it endeavors to do so by following the strategies and policies described in this Prospectus.
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities maturing in 397 days or less. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT).
Federated Investment Management Company (“Adviser”) actively manages the Fund's portfolio, seeking to limit the credit risk taken by the Fund and to select investments, including securities subject to the AMT with appropriate risk-adjusted returns. The Adviser also may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to provide diversification.
The Adviser performs a fundamental credit analysis to develop an approved database of issuers and securities that meet the Adviser's standards for minimal credit risk. The Adviser monitors the credit risks of all portfolio securities on an ongoing basis by reviewing periodic financial data and ratings of nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (NRSROs).
The Adviser targets a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity (DWAM) range based upon its interest rate outlook and the tax-exempt securities available. The Adviser formulates its interest rate outlook by analyzing a variety of factors such as (among others): current and expected U.S. economic growth; current and expected interest rates and inflation; and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy. The Adviser structures the portfolio by investing in variable rate demand instruments

Table of Contents
and municipal notes, as well as other permissible investments as described in this Prospectus and in the Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI). The Adviser generally shortens the portfolio's maturity when it expects interest rates to rise and extends the maturity when it expects interest rates to fall. This strategy seeks to enhance the returns from favorable interest rate changes and reduce the effect of unfavorable changes.
The Fund will: (1) maintain a DWAM of 60 days or less; and (2) maintain a weighted average life (WAL) of 120 days or less. Certain of the securities in which the Fund invests may pay interest at a rate that is periodically adjusted (“Adjustable Rate Securities”). For purposes of calculating DWAM, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security generally will be the period remaining until its next interest rate adjustment. For purposes of calculating WAL, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security will be its stated final maturity, without regard to interest rate adjustments; accordingly, the 120-day WAL limitation could serve to limit the Fund's ability to invest in Adjustable Rate Securities.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
Temporary Investments
The Fund may temporarily depart from its principal investment strategies by investing its assets in taxable securities or holding cash. It may do this in response to unusual circumstances, such as: adverse market, economic or other conditions (for example, to help avoid potential losses, or during periods when there is a shortage of appropriate tax-exempt securities); to maintain liquidity to meet shareholder redemptions; or to accommodate cash inflows. It is possible that such temporary investments could affect the Fund's investment returns. If the Fund invests in taxable securities, it may receive and distribute taxable income to investors and to that extent to fail to meet its investment objectives.
What are the Fund's Principal Investments?
The following provides general information on the Fund's principal investments. The Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI) provides information about the Fund's non-principal investments and may provide additional information about the Fund's principal investments.
TAX-EXEMPT SECURITIES
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. Fixed-income securities pay interest, dividends or distributions at a specified rate. The rate may be a fixed percentage of the principal or adjusted periodically. In addition, the issuer of a fixed-income security must repay the principal amount of the security, normally within a specified time. Typically, states, counties, cities and other political subdivisions and authorities issue tax-exempt securities. The market categorizes tax-exempt securities by their source of repayment. Certain of these tax-exempt securities may be subject to credit enhancement. The following describes the principal types of tax-exempt securities in which the Fund may invest:
Variable Rate Demand Instruments (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Variable rate demand instruments are tax-exempt securities that require the issuer or a third party, such as a dealer or bank (the “Demand Provider”), to repurchase the security for its face value upon demand. The securities also pay interest at a variable rate intended to cause the securities to trade at their face value. Some variable rate demand instruments are “conditional,” so that the occurrence of certain conditions discharges the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security. Other variable rate demand instruments are “unconditional,” so that there are no conditions under which the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security can terminate. The Fund treats variable rate demand instruments as short-term securities even though their maturity may extend beyond 397 days because, within 397 days, their variable interest rate adjusts in response to changes in market rates and the repayment of their principal amount can be demanded. Certain variable rate demand instruments that may be invested in by the Fund, referred to as “synthetic” variable rate demand instruments, have certain features, such as call features, that make it possible that the Fund will realize capital gains.

Table of Contents
Municipal Notes (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Municipal notes are short-term, tax-exempt securities. Many municipalities issue such notes to fund their current operations before collecting taxes or other municipal revenues. Municipalities may also issue notes to fund capital projects prior to issuing long-term bonds. The issuers typically repay the notes at the end of their fiscal year, either with taxes, other revenues or proceeds from newly issued notes or bonds.
General Obligation Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
General obligation bonds are supported by the issuer's power to exact property or other taxes. The issuer must impose and collect taxes sufficient to pay principal and interest on the bonds. However, the issuer's authority to impose additional taxes may be limited by its charter or state law.
Special Revenue Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Special revenue bonds are payable solely from specific revenues received by the issuer such as specific taxes, assessments, tolls or fees. Bondholders may not collect from the municipality's general taxes or revenues. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to build a toll road, and pledge the tolls to repay the bonds. Therefore, a shortfall in the tolls normally would result in a default on the bonds, or in certain cases, may result in a reduction in payments received in respect of the bonds.
Private Activity Bonds (A Type of Special Revenue Bond)
Private activity bonds are special revenue bonds used to finance private projects. A certain percentage of the proceeds from a private activity bond is used for a private business use or a certain percentage of the debt service regarding a private activity bond is paid directly or indirectly from a private business use. A private business use is a trade or business carried on by any person or entity other than a governmental unit. Private activity bonds are secured primarily by revenues derived from loan repayments or lease payments due from the private entity, which may or may not be guaranteed by a parent company or otherwise secured. Private activity bonds generally are not secured by a pledge of the taxing power of the issuer of such bonds. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to finance a new factory to improve its local economy. The municipality would lend the proceeds from its bonds to the company using the factory, and the company would agree to make loan payments sufficient to cover interest and principal payments on the bonds. The bonds would be payable from the company's loan payments, and generally not from any other revenues of the municipality. Therefore, any default of the loan normally would result in a default on the bonds.
Types of private activity bonds include, for example: bonds issued to obtain funds to provide water, sewage and solid waste facilities, qualified residential rental projects, certain local electric, gas and other heating and cooling facilities, qualified hazardous waste facilities, high-speed intercity rail facilities, certain airports, docks, wharves and mass transportation facilities and qualified mortgages; qualified student loan bonds; qualified redevelopment bonds; and bonds used for certain organizations exempt from federal income taxation (qualified 501(c)(3) bonds).
The interest on many types of private activity bonds is subject to the federal AMT. The Fund may invest in bonds subject to AMT.
Tax-Exempt Commercial Paper (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Tax-exempt commercial paper is an obligation issued by a tax-exempt issuer with a maturity of generally less than nine months. Tax-exempt issuers may issue commercial paper to pay for current expenditures or other permissible activities. Tax-exempt issuers may constantly reissue their commercial paper and use the proceeds (or other sources) to repay maturing paper. If the tax-exempt issuer cannot continue to obtain liquidity in this fashion, and if there is not another available source of liquidity, its commercial paper may default or there may be a reduction in payments received in repayment of the tax-exempt commercial paper.
Credit Enhancement
The Fund may invest in tax-exempt securities with credit enhancement. Credit enhancement consists of an arrangement in which a company agrees to pay amounts due on a fixed-income security if the issuer defaults. In some cases, the company providing credit enhancement makes all payments directly to the security holders and receives reimbursement from the issuer. Normally, the credit enhancer has greater financial resources and liquidity than the issuer. For this reason, the Adviser may evaluate the credit risk of a fixed-income security based solely upon its credit enhancement.
Common types of credit enhancement include guarantees, letters of credit, bond insurance and surety bonds. Credit enhancement also includes arrangements where securities or other liquid assets secure payment of a fixed-income security. If a default occurs, these assets may be sold and the proceeds paid to the security's holders. Either form of credit enhancement reduces credit risks by providing another source of payment for a fixed-income security.

Table of Contents
Investing in Securities of Other Investment Companies
The Fund may invest its assets in shares of other investment companies as an efficient means of implementing its investment strategies and/or managing its uninvested cash. These investments may include shares of an affiliated money market fund or preferred shares of a closed-end fund that are eligible for purchase by money market funds (generally, because such preferred shares are structured as unconditional demand instruments with a third-party Demand Provider). Other investment companies are managed independently of the Fund and incur additional fees and/or expenses which would, therefore, be borne indirectly by the Fund in connection with any such investment. However, the Adviser believes that the benefits and efficiencies of this approach should outweigh the potential additional fees and/or expenses. The Fund may invest in money market securities directly.
Investment Ratings
The securities in which the Fund invests must be rated in one of the two highest short-term rating categories (without regard for gradations or sub-categories) by one or more NRSROs or be deemed by the Adviser to be of comparable quality to securities having such ratings.
The Fund will rely on the two highest ratings given to a security by the NRSROs for purposes of complying with this requirement. If one or both of the two highest ratings are in the second highest short-term rating category, the security is treated as a Second Tier Security. Generally, Rule 2a-7 prohibits the Fund from investing more than 3% of its assets in Second Tier Securities. The Fund complies with these rating requirements at the time a security is acquired. If a security is downgraded to Second Tier after its acquisition, the Fund may continue to hold the security even if the portfolio exceeds Rule 2a-7's limits on Second Tier Securities. Other factors, such as substantial redemptions, may cause the Fund's portfolio to exceed Rule 2a-7 limits on the acquisition of securities. The Fund may continue to hold securities in excess of these limits, even if the Fund has the right to tender the security for purchase for its amortized cost value.
What are the Specific Risks of Investing in the Fund?
The following provides general information on the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments. These are the primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund or reduce the Fund's daily dividends. Any additional risks associated with the Fund's non-principal investments are described in the Fund's SAI. The Fund's SAI also may provide additional information about the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments.
ISSUER Credit Risk
It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Many fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) receive credit ratings from NRSROs such as Fitch Rating Service, Moody's Investor Services, Inc. and Standard & Poor's that assign ratings to securities by assessing the likelihood of an issuer and/or guarantor default. Higher credit ratings correspond to lower perceived credit risk and lower credit ratings correspond to higher perceived credit risk. Credit ratings may be upgraded or downgraded from time to time as an NRSRO's assessment of the financial condition of a party obligated to make payments with respect to such securities and credit risk changes. The impact of any credit rating downgrade can be uncertain. Credit rating downgrades may lead to increased interest rates and volatility in financial markets, which in turn could negatively affect the value of the Fund's portfolio holdings, its share price and its investment performance. Credit ratings are not a guarantee of quality. Credit ratings may lag behind the current financial conditions of the issuer and/or guarantor and do not provide assurance against default or other loss of money. Credit ratings do not protect against a decline in the value of a security. If a security has not received a rating, the Fund must rely entirely upon the Adviser's credit assessment.
Fixed-income securities generally compensate for greater credit risk by paying interest at a higher rate. The difference between the yield of a security and the yield of a U.S. Treasury security or other appropriate benchmark with a comparable maturity (the “spread”) measures the additional interest paid for risk. Spreads may increase generally in response to adverse economic or market conditions. A security's spread may also increase if the security's rating is lowered, or the security is perceived to have an increased credit risk. An increase in the spread will cause the price of the security to decline if interest rates remain unchanged.
Finally, the securities in which the Fund invests may include those issued by governments, including, for example, a state or local government, or other political subdivisions or authorities, or directly or indirectly supported by taxes, assessments, tolls, fees or other revenue collected by or otherwise derived by or through such issuers. Such securities, like other securities that may be invested in by the Fund, have credit risk. Like other issuers, there is no guarantee that the issuers of such securities will have sufficient revenues to satisfy their obligations (such as, for example, the payment of interest or principal when due) with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. For example, in the case of certain of these issuers, legal,
7

Table of Contents
economic, political or other developments may raise impairments (such as, for example, limitations under applicable law on the issuer's authority to raise taxes, prolonged budgetary processes, declining real estate values and declining tax revenues) to such an issuer's budgetary flexibility and liquidity, and its ability to satisfy its obligations with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. Such impairments may cause a downgrade in the credit ratings of such an issuer, or the securities issued or supported by it, and may cause such an issuer to defer payment of certain obligations, reduce or eliminate appropriations and/or default on its obligations. In such situations, the credit risk of such securities invested in by the Fund will increase. Like other issuers and securities, the likelihood that the credit risk associated with such issuers and such securities will increase is greater during times of economic stress and financial instability. As a result, in such situations, there would be heightened risk that there could be an interruption in payments to bondholders in some cases. There also could be a reduction in the market value of the bonds held by the Fund, which could adversely affect the Fund's net asset value or the distributions paid by the Fund.
COUNTERPARTY CREDIT RISK
Counterparty credit risk includes the possibility that a party to a transaction involving the Fund will fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategy.
Interest Rate Risk
Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) rise and fall in response to changes in the interest rate paid by similar securities. Generally, when interest rates rise, prices of fixed-income securities fall. However, market factors, such as the demand for particular fixed-income securities, may cause the price of certain fixed-income securities to fall, while the prices of other securities rise or remain unchanged.
Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing short-term securities.
Certain factors, such as the presence of call features, may cause a particular fixed-income security, or the Fund as a whole, to exhibit less sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Certain of the Fund's investments may also be valued, in part, by reference to the relative relationship between interest rates on tax-exempt securities and taxable securities, respectively. When the market for tax-exempt securities underperforms (or outperforms) the market for taxable securities, the value of these investments may be negatively affected (or positively affected).
Call Risk
Call risk is the possibility that an issuer may redeem a fixed-income security (including a tax-exempt security) before maturity (a “call”) at a price below or above its current market price. An increase in the likelihood of a call may reduce the security's price.
If a fixed-income security is called, the Fund may have to reinvest the proceeds in other fixed-income securities with lower interest rates, higher credit risks or other less favorable characteristics.
Sector Risk
A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities. Developments affecting companies with similar characteristics might include changes in interest rates, changes in economic cycles affecting credit losses and regulatory changes.
TAX RISK
In order to pay interest that is exempt from federal or state/local regular income tax, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable.
Changes or proposed changes in federal, state or local tax laws may cause the prices of tax-exempt securities to fall and/or may affect the tax-exempt status of the securities in which the Fund invests. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.

Table of Contents
LIQUIDITY RISK
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss. An inability to sell portfolio securities may result from adverse market developments or investor perceptions regarding the portfolio securities. While the Fund endeavors to maintain a high level of liquidity in its portfolio so that it can satisfy redemption requests, the Fund's ability to sell portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting particular issuers or credit enhancement providers, or due to general market conditions and a lack of willing buyers.
CREDIT ENHANCEMENT RISK
The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). Credit enhancement is designed to help assure timely payment of the security; it does not protect the Fund against losses caused by declines in a security's value due to changes in market conditions. Securities subject to credit enhancement generally would be assigned a lower credit rating if the rating were based primarily on the credit quality of the issuer without regard to the credit enhancement. If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded.
A single enhancement provider may provide credit enhancement to more than one of the Fund's investments. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund, as the Fund may invest in securities credit enhanced by banks or by bond insurers without limit. Bond insurers that provide credit enhancement for large segments of the fixed-income markets, including the municipal bond market, may be more susceptible to being downgraded or defaulting during recessions or similar periods of economic stress.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH INVESTING SHARE PURCHASE PROCEEDS
On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the Fund holds cash, or if the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the portfolio, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. The larger the amount that must be invested or the greater the difference between the yield of the securities purchased and the yield of the existing investments, the greater the impact will be on the yield of the Fund. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF AMORTIZED COST
In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce, to the extent practicable, such dilution or unfair results, including, but not limited to, considering suspending redemption of Shares and liquidating the Fund under Rule 22e-3 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
ADDITIONAL FACTORS AFFECTING YIELD
There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary. A low interest rate environment may prevent the Fund from providing a positive yield or paying Fund expenses out of current income and could impair the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV. The Fund's yield could also be negatively affected (both in absolute terms, and as compared to other money market funds) by aspects of its investment program (for example, its investment policies, strategies or limitations) or its operational policies (for example, its cut-off time for purchases and redemptions of Shares).
California Risk
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, the Fund may be subject to additional risks compared to a money market fund that invests in multiple states.
California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Major components include high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's location is a benefit to its trade component; however, but also leads to above average exposure to international economic conditions.
9

Table of Contents
California's financial operations face rather significant structural budget impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance. Past periods of dramatic revenue underperformance have resulted in significant budgetary deficits and reduced liquidity.
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, its performance also may be negatively affected by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the creditworthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy.
technology Risk
The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
What Do Shares Cost?
CALCULATION OF NET ASSET VALUE
The Fund attempts to stabilize the NAV of its Shares at $1.00 by valuing the portfolio securities using the amortized cost method. In addition, for regulatory purposes, the Fund calculates a market-based NAV per Share on a periodic basis. The Fund cannot guarantee that its NAV will always remain at $1.00 per Share. The Fund does not charge a front-end sales charge.
You can purchase, redeem or exchange Shares any day the NYSE is open (a “Regular Business Day”). You may also be able to purchase and redeem (but not exchange) Shares on certain days that the NYSE is closed on an unscheduled basis due to unforeseen or emergency circumstances, if the Fund's Board determines to allow Fund Share transactions on such days (a “Special Trading Day”). If the Fund declares a Special Trading Day, information regarding shareholder trading activities for the Special Trading Day (such as when NAV, and entitlement to that day's dividend, will be determined) will be available by calling the Fund at 1-800-341-7400 and will be posted on Federated's website at FederatedInvestors.com. The information set forth in this Prospectus regarding times relevant to NAV determination and dividend entitlement applies only to Regular Business Days. Please note that the times that might be specified for NAV determination and dividend entitlement on a Special Trading Day would not necessarily be the same as set forth in this Prospectus with respect to Regular Business Days. Although Federated will attempt to make such information available in advance of a particular Special Trading Day, given the nature of Special Trading Days, it may not be able to do so until the morning of the Special Trading Day.
When the Fund receives your transaction request in proper form (as described in this Prospectus), it is processed at the next determined NAV. NAV is determined at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and as of the end of regular trading on the NYSE (normally, 4:00 p.m.) Eastern time each day the NYSE is open. The times as of when NAV is determined, and when orders must be placed, may be changed as permitted by the SEC.
How is the Fund Sold?
The Fund offers five Share classes: Service Shares, Institutional Shares, Cash II Shares, Capital Shares and Cash Series Shares, each representing interests in a single portfolio of securities. This Prospectus relates only to Institutional Shares. All Share classes have different expenses which affect their performance. Contact your financial intermediary or call 1-800-341-7400 for more information concerning the other classes.
The Fund's Distributor, Federated Securities Corp., markets the Shares described in this Prospectus to financial institutions acting in an agency or fiduciary capacity, or to individuals, directly or through financial intermediaries. The Fund may not be a suitable investment for retirement plans or for non-California taxpayers because it invests in California tax-exempt securities. Under the Distributor's Contract with the Fund, the Distributor offers Shares on a continuous, best-efforts basis. The Distributor is a subsidiary of Federated Investors, Inc. (“Federated”).
Payments to Financial Intermediaries
The Fund and its affiliated service providers may pay fees as described below to financial intermediaries (such as broker-dealers, banks, investment advisers or third-party administrators) whose customers are shareholders of the Fund.
10

Table of Contents
SERVICE FEES
The Fund may pay Service Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to financial intermediaries or to Federated Shareholder Services Company (FSSC), a subsidiary of Federated, for providing services to shareholders and maintaining shareholder accounts. Intermediaries that receive Service Fees may include a company affiliated with management of Federated. If a financial intermediary receives Service Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees on that same account.
The IS Class of the Fund has no present intention of paying, accruing or incurring any such Service Fees until such time as approved by the Fund's Board of Trustees.
ACCOUNT ADMINISTRATION FEES
The Fund may pay Account Administration Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to banks that are not registered as broker-dealers or investment advisers for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Account Administration Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Service Fees or Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
The IS Class of the Fund has no present intention of paying, accruing or incurring any such Account Administration Fees until such time as approved by the Fund's Board of Trustees.
RECORDKEEPING FEES
The Fund may pay Recordkeeping Fees on an average-net-assets basis or on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing recordkeeping services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Recordkeeping Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees or Networking Fees on that same account.
NETWORKING FEES
The Fund may reimburse Networking Fees on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders on certain non-omnibus accounts. If a financial intermediary receives Networking Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS TO FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES
The Distributor may pay, out of its own resources, amounts (including items of material value) to certain financial intermediaries that support the sale of Shares or provide services to Fund shareholders. The amounts of these payments could be significant, and may create an incentive for the financial intermediary or its employees or associated persons to recommend or sell Shares of the Fund to you. In some cases, such payments may be made by or funded from the resources of companies affiliated with the Distributor (including the Adviser). These payments are not reflected in the fees and expenses listed in the fee table section of the Fund's Prospectus and described above because they are not paid by the Fund.
These payments are negotiated and may be based on such factors as: the number or value of Shares that the financial intermediary sells or may sell; the value of client assets invested; or the type and nature of services or support furnished by the financial intermediary. These payments may be in addition to payments, as described above, made by the Fund to the financial intermediary. In connection with these payments, the financial intermediary may elevate the prominence or profile of the Fund and/or other Federated funds, within the financial intermediary's organization by, for example, placement on a list of preferred or recommended funds and/or granting the Distributor preferential or enhanced opportunities to promote the funds in various ways within the financial intermediary's organization. You can ask your financial intermediary for information about any payments it receives from the Distributor or the Fund and any services provided.
How to Purchase Shares
You may purchase Shares through a financial intermediary, directly from the Fund or through an exchange from another Federated fund. The Fund reserves the right to reject any request to purchase or exchange Shares. New investors must submit a completed New Account Form.
The minimum initial investment for Fund Shares is generally $25,000. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount.
An account may be opened with a smaller amount as long as the $25,000 minimum is reached within 90 days. An institutional investor's minimum investment is calculated by combining all accounts it maintains with the Fund. Financial intermediaries may impose higher or lower minimum investment requirements on their customers than those imposed by the Fund. Keep in mind that financial intermediaries may charge you fees for their services in connection with your Share transactions.

14

Table of Contents
in which there are emergency conditions, including liquidation of the Fund, as provided in Section 22(e), and rules thereunder, of the Investment Company Act of 1940.
You will not accrue interest or dividends on uncashed redemption checks from the Fund if those checks are undeliverable and returned to the Fund.
EXCHANGE PRIVILEGE
You may exchange Shares of the Fund for shares of any Federated fund or share class that does not have a stated sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge, except Federated Liberty U.S. Government Money Market Trust and R class. To do this, you must:
ensure that the account registrations are identical;
meet any applicable minimum initial investment requirements; and
receive a prospectus for the fund into which you wish to exchange.
An exchange is treated as a redemption and a subsequent purchase, and is a taxable transaction. The Fund may modify or terminate the exchange privilege at any time.
Systematic Withdrawal/Exchange Program
You may automatically redeem or exchange Shares. The minimum amount for all new or revised systematic redemptions or exchanges of Shares is $50 per transaction per fund. Complete the appropriate section of the New Account Form or an Account Service Options Form or contact your financial intermediary or the Fund. Your account value must meet the minimum initial investment amount at the time the program is established. This program may reduce, and eventually deplete, your account. Payments should not be considered yield or income.
ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS
Telephone Transactions
The Fund will record your telephone instructions. If the Fund does not follow reasonable procedures, it may be liable for losses due to unauthorized or fraudulent telephone instructions.
Share Certificates
The Fund does not issue share certificates.
Account and Share Information
ACCOUNT ACTIVITY
You will receive periodic statements reporting all account activity, including systematic transactions, dividends and capital gains paid.
DIVIDENDS AND CAPITAL GAINS
The Fund declares any dividends daily and pays them monthly to shareholders.
The Fund does not expect to realize any capital gains or losses. However, the Fund may realize capital gains on certain securities, such as synthetic variable rate demand instruments, that may be redeemed in certain circumstances at a premium to their face value. If capital gains or losses were to occur, they could result in an increase or decrease in dividends. The Fund pays any capital gains at least annually, and may make such special distributions of dividends and capital gains as may be necessary to meet applicable regulatory requirements. Your dividends and capital gains distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional Shares without a sales charge, unless you elect cash payments. Dividends may also be reinvested without sales charges in shares of any class of any other Federated fund of which you are already a shareholder.
If you have elected to receive dividends and/or capital gain distributions in cash, and your check is returned by the postal or other delivery service as “undeliverable,” or you do not respond to mailings from Federated with regard to uncashed distribution checks, your distribution option will automatically be converted to having all dividends and capital gains reinvested in additional Shares. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks. See “Tax Information” below for information on the tax consequences of the Fund realizing a capital gain.
Under the federal securities laws, the Fund is required to provide a notice to shareholders regarding the source of distributions made by the Fund if such distributions are from sources other than ordinary investment income. In addition, important information regarding the Fund's distributions, if applicable, is available via the link to the Fund and share class name at www.Federatedinvestors.com/FundInformation.

ACCOUNTS WITH LOW BALANCES
Federated reserves the right to close accounts if redemptions or exchanges cause the account balance to fall below $25,000. Before an account is closed, you will be notified and allowed at least 30 days to purchase additional Shares to meet the minimum.
TAX INFORMATION
The Fund sends an IRS Form 1099 and an annual statement of your account activity to assist you in completing your federal, state and local tax returns. It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes, although the Fund's dividends will be exempt from the California taxes to the extent they are derived from interest on obligations exempt from such taxes. Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Distributions of net short-term capital gains are taxable to you as ordinary income. Distributions of net long-term capital gains are taxable to you as long-term capital gains regardless of how long you have owned your Shares. Capital gains and non-exempt dividends are taxable whether paid in cash or reinvested in the Fund. Redemptions and exchanges are taxable sales. Please consult your tax adviser regarding your federal, state and local tax liability.
FREQUENT TRADING POLICIES
Given the short-term nature of the Fund's investments and its use of the amortized cost method for calculating the NAV of Fund Shares, the Fund does not anticipate that in the normal case frequent or short-term trading into and out of the Fund will have significant adverse consequences for the Fund and its shareholders. For this reason and because the Fund is intended to be used as a liquid short-term investment, the Fund's Board has not adopted policies or procedures to monitor or discourage frequent or short-term trading of the Fund's Shares. Regardless of their frequency or short-term nature, purchases and redemptions of Fund Shares can have adverse effects on the management of the Fund's portfolio and its performance.
Other funds in the Federated family of funds may impose monitoring policies. Under normal market conditions, such monitoring policies are designed to protect the funds being monitored and their shareholders, and the operation of such policies and shareholder investments under such monitoring are not expected to have a materially adverse impact on the Federated funds or their shareholders. If you plan to exchange your Fund Shares for shares of another Federated fund, please read the prospectus of that other Federated fund for more information.

Appendix A: Hypothetical Investment and Expense Information
The following chart provides additional hypothetical information about the effect of the Fund's expenses, including investment advisory fees and other Fund costs, on the Fund's assumed returns over a 10-year period. The chart shows the estimated expenses that would be incurred in respect of a hypothetical investment of $10,000, assuming a 5% return each year, and no redemption of Shares. The chart also assumes that the Fund's annual expense ratio stays the same throughout the 10-year period and that all dividends and distributions are reinvested. The annual expense ratio used in the chart is the same as stated in the “Fees and Expenses” table of this Prospectus (and thus may not reflect any fee waiver or expense reimbursement currently in effect). The maximum amount of any sales charge that might be imposed on the purchase of Shares (and deducted from the hypothetical initial investment of $10,000; the “Front-End Sales Charge”) is reflected in the “Hypothetical Expenses” column. The hypothetical investment information does not reflect the effect of charges (if any) normally applicable to redemptions of Shares (e.g., deferred sales charges, redemption fees). Mutual fund returns, as well as fees and expenses, may fluctuate over time, and your actual investment returns and total expenses may be higher or lower than those shown below.

Table of Contents
RISK/RETURN SUMMARY: INVESTMENTS, RISKS and PERFORMANCE
What are the Fund's Main Investment Strategies?
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund invests in a portfolio of securities maturing in 397 days or less.
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. The types of securities in which the Fund may principally invest include: (a) tax-exempt securities such as the following types, some of which may be subject to credit enhancement: variable rate demand instruments, municipal notes, general obligation bonds, special revenue bonds, private activity bonds and tax-exempt commercial paper; and (b) interests in securities of other investment companies.
In pursuing its investment objective and implementing its investment strategies, the Fund will comply with Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (“Rule 2a-7”). The Fund's investment adviser may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to seek appropriate risk adjusted returns and provide diversification.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
What are the Main Risks of Investing in the Fund?
All mutual funds take investment risks. Therefore, even though the Fund is a money market fund that seeks to maintain a stable NAV, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. The primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund, or reduce the Fund's daily dividends include:
Issuer Credit Risk. It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Counterparty Credit Risk. A party to a transaction involving the Fund may fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategies.
Interest Rate Risk. Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) generally fall when interest rates rise. Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities.
Call Risk. The Fund's performance may be adversely affected by the possibility that an issuer of a security held by the Fund may redeem the security prior to maturity at a price below or above its current market value.
Sector Risk. A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities.
Tax Risk. In order to be tax exempt, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss.
Credit Enhancement Risk. The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund.

Table of Contents
Risk Associated with Investing Share Purchase Proceeds. On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the Fund's portfolio, or if the Fund holds cash, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.
Risk Associated with use of Amortized Cost. In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce to the extent practicable such dilution or unfair results.
Additional Factors Affecting Yield. There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary.
California Risk. Because the Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in securities of California issuers, an investment in the Fund may involve additional risks compared to a fully diversified money market fund that invests in multiple states, and the Fund's performance also may be negatively impacted by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the credit worthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy. California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world with major components including high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's budgetary and fiscal operations face certain structural impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance.
Technology Risk. The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
The Shares offered by this Prospectus are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not endorsed or guaranteed by any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the U.S. government, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.
Performance: Bar Chart and Table
Risk/Return Bar Chart
The bar chart and performance table below reflect historical performance data for the Fund and are intended to help you analyze the Fund's investment risks in light of its historical returns. The bar chart shows the variability of the Fund's CII class total returns on a calendar year-by-year basis. The Average Annual Total Return Table shows returns averaged over the stated periods.

Redeem or exchange Shares through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund by telephone at 1-800-341-7400 or by mail.
TAX INFORMATION
It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be tax exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes (except for California taxes, to the extent derived from California tax-exempt investments and eligible for tax-exempt treatment under California law). Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Any Fund distributions of capital gains are taxable at applicable capital gains rates. The Fund is generally not a suitable investment for retirement accounts.
Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and/or its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund Shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary's website for more information.
What are the Fund's Investment Strategies?
While there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective, it endeavors to do so by following the strategies and policies described in this Prospectus.
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities maturing in 397 days or less. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT).
Federated Investment Management Company (“Adviser”) actively manages the Fund's portfolio, seeking to limit the credit risk taken by the Fund and to select investments, including securities subject to the AMT with appropriate risk-adjusted returns. The Adviser also may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to provide diversification.
The Adviser performs a fundamental credit analysis to develop an approved database of issuers and securities that meet the Adviser's standards for minimal credit risk. The Adviser monitors the credit risks of all portfolio securities on an ongoing basis by reviewing periodic financial data and ratings of nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (NRSROs).
The Adviser targets a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity (DWAM) range based upon its interest rate outlook and the tax-exempt securities available. The Adviser formulates its interest rate outlook by analyzing a variety of factors such as (among others): current and expected U.S. economic growth; current and expected interest rates and inflation; and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy. The Adviser structures the portfolio by investing in variable rate demand instruments
4

Table of Contents
and municipal notes, as well as other permissible investments as described in this Prospectus and in the Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI). The Adviser generally shortens the portfolio's maturity when it expects interest rates to rise and extends the maturity when it expects interest rates to fall. This strategy seeks to enhance the returns from favorable interest rate changes and reduce the effect of unfavorable changes.
The Fund will: (1) maintain a DWAM of 60 days or less; and (2) maintain a weighted average life (WAL) of 120 days or less. Certain of the securities in which the Fund invests may pay interest at a rate that is periodically adjusted (“Adjustable Rate Securities”). For purposes of calculating DWAM, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security generally will be the period remaining until its next interest rate adjustment. For purposes of calculating WAL, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security will be its stated final maturity, without regard to interest rate adjustments; accordingly, the 120-day WAL limitation could serve to limit the Fund's ability to invest in Adjustable Rate Securities.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
Temporary Investments
The Fund may temporarily depart from its principal investment strategies by investing its assets in taxable securities or holding cash. It may do this in response to unusual circumstances, such as: adverse market, economic or other conditions (for example, to help avoid potential losses, or during periods when there is a shortage of appropriate tax-exempt securities); to maintain liquidity to meet shareholder redemptions; or to accommodate cash inflows. It is possible that such temporary investments could affect the Fund's investment returns. If the Fund invests in taxable securities, it may receive and distribute taxable income to investors and to that extent to fail to meet its investment objectives.
What are the Fund's Principal Investments?
The following provides general information on the Fund's principal investments. The Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI) provides information about the Fund's non-principal investments and may provide additional information about the Fund's principal investments.

Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. Fixed-income securities pay interest, dividends or distributions at a specified rate. The rate may be a fixed percentage of the principal or adjusted periodically. In addition, the issuer of a fixed-income security must repay the principal amount of the security, normally within a specified time. Typically, states, counties, cities and other political subdivisions and authorities issue tax-exempt securities. The market categorizes tax-exempt securities by their source of repayment. Certain of these tax-exempt securities may be subject to credit enhancement. The following describes the principal types of tax-exempt securities in which the Fund may invest:
Variable Rate Demand Instruments (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Variable rate demand instruments are tax-exempt securities that require the issuer or a third party, such as a dealer or bank (the “Demand Provider”), to repurchase the security for its face value upon demand. The securities also pay interest at a variable rate intended to cause the securities to trade at their face value. Some variable rate demand instruments are “conditional,” so that the occurrence of certain conditions discharges the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security. Other variable rate demand instruments are “unconditional,” so that there are no conditions under which the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security can terminate. The Fund treats variable rate demand instruments as short-term securities even though their maturity may extend beyond 397 days because, within 397 days, their variable interest rate adjusts in response to changes in market rates and the repayment of their principal amount can be demanded. Certain variable rate demand instruments that may be invested in by the Fund, referred to as “synthetic” variable rate demand instruments, have certain features, such as call features, that make it possible that the Fund will realize capital gains.

Municipal Notes (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Municipal notes are short-term, tax-exempt securities. Many municipalities issue such notes to fund their current operations before collecting taxes or other municipal revenues. Municipalities may also issue notes to fund capital projects prior to issuing long-term bonds. The issuers typically repay the notes at the end of their fiscal year, either with taxes, other revenues or proceeds from newly issued notes or bonds.
General Obligation Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
General obligation bonds are supported by the issuer's power to exact property or other taxes. The issuer must impose and collect taxes sufficient to pay principal and interest on the bonds. However, the issuer's authority to impose additional taxes may be limited by its charter or state law.
Special Revenue Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Special revenue bonds are payable solely from specific revenues received by the issuer such as specific taxes, assessments, tolls or fees. Bondholders may not collect from the municipality's general taxes or revenues. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to build a toll road, and pledge the tolls to repay the bonds. Therefore, a shortfall in the tolls normally would result in a default on the bonds, or in certain cases, may result in a reduction in payments received in respect of the bonds.
Private Activity Bonds (A Type of Special Revenue Bond)
Private activity bonds are special revenue bonds used to finance private projects. A certain percentage of the proceeds from a private activity bond is used for a private business use or a certain percentage of the debt service regarding a private activity bond is paid directly or indirectly from a private business use. A private business use is a trade or business carried on by any person or entity other than a governmental unit. Private activity bonds are secured primarily by revenues derived from loan repayments or lease payments due from the private entity, which may or may not be guaranteed by a parent company or otherwise secured. Private activity bonds generally are not secured by a pledge of the taxing power of the issuer of such bonds. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to finance a new factory to improve its local economy. The municipality would lend the proceeds from its bonds to the company using the factory, and the company would agree to make loan payments sufficient to cover interest and principal payments on the bonds. The bonds would be payable from the company's loan payments, and generally not from any other revenues of the municipality. Therefore, any default of the loan normally would result in a default on the bonds.
Types of private activity bonds include, for example: bonds issued to obtain funds to provide water, sewage and solid waste facilities, qualified residential rental projects, certain local electric, gas and other heating and cooling facilities, qualified hazardous waste facilities, high-speed intercity rail facilities, certain airports, docks, wharves and mass transportation facilities and qualified mortgages; qualified student loan bonds; qualified redevelopment bonds; and bonds used for certain organizations exempt from federal income taxation (qualified 501(c)(3) bonds).
The interest on many types of private activity bonds is subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund may invest in bonds subject to AMT.
Tax-Exempt Commercial Paper (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Tax-exempt commercial paper is an obligation issued by a tax-exempt issuer with a maturity of generally less than nine months. Tax-exempt issuers may issue commercial paper to pay for current expenditures or other permissible activities. Tax-exempt issuers may constantly reissue their commercial paper and use the proceeds (or other sources) to repay maturing paper. If the tax-exempt issuer cannot continue to obtain liquidity in this fashion, and if there is not another available source of liquidity, its commercial paper may default or there may be a reduction in payments received in repayment of the tax-exempt commercial paper.
Credit Enhancement
The Fund may invest in tax-exempt securities with credit enhancement. Credit enhancement consists of an arrangement in which a company agrees to pay amounts due on a fixed-income security if the issuer defaults. In some cases, the company providing credit enhancement makes all payments directly to the security holders and receives reimbursement from the issuer. Normally, the credit enhancer has greater financial resources and liquidity than the issuer. For this reason, the Adviser may evaluate the credit risk of a fixed-income security based solely upon its credit enhancement.
Common types of credit enhancement include guarantees, letters of credit, bond insurance and surety bonds. Credit enhancement also includes arrangements where securities or other liquid assets secure payment of a fixed-income security. If a default occurs, these assets may be sold and the proceeds paid to the security's holders. Either form of credit enhancement reduces credit risks by providing another source of payment for a fixed-income security.

Investing in Securities of Other Investment Companies
The Fund may invest its assets in shares of other investment companies as an efficient means of implementing its investment strategies and/or managing its uninvested cash. These investments may include shares of an affiliated money market fund or preferred shares of a closed-end fund that are eligible for purchase by money market funds (generally, because such preferred shares are structured as unconditional demand instruments with a third-party Demand Provider). Other investment companies are managed independently of the Fund and incur additional fees and/or expenses which would, therefore, be borne indirectly by the Fund in connection with any such investment. However, the Adviser believes that the benefits and efficiencies of this approach should outweigh the potential additional fees and/or expenses. The Fund may invest in money market securities directly.
Investment Ratings
The securities in which the Fund invests must be rated in one of the two highest short-term rating categories (without regard for gradations or sub-categories) by one or more NRSROs or be deemed by the Adviser to be of comparable quality to securities having such ratings.
The Fund will rely on the two highest ratings given to a security by the NRSROs for purposes of complying with this requirement. If one or both of the two highest ratings are in the second highest short-term rating category, the security is treated as a Second Tier Security. Generally, Rule 2a-7 prohibits the Fund from investing more than 3% of its assets in Second Tier Securities. The Fund complies with these rating requirements at the time a security is acquired. If a security is downgraded to Second Tier after its acquisition, the Fund may continue to hold the security even if the portfolio exceeds Rule 2a-7's limits on Second Tier Securities. Other factors, such as substantial redemptions, may cause the Fund's portfolio to exceed Rule 2a-7 limits on the acquisition of securities. The Fund may continue to hold securities in excess of these limits, even if the Fund has the right to tender the security for purchase for its amortized cost value.
What are the Specific Risks of Investing in the Fund?
The following provides general information on the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments. These are the primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund or reduce the Fund's daily dividends. Any additional risks associated with the Fund's non-principal investments are described in the Fund's SAI. The Fund's SAI also may provide additional information about the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments.
ISSUER Credit Risk
It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Many fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) receive credit ratings from NRSROs such as Fitch Rating Service, Moody's Investor Services, Inc. and Standard & Poor's that assign ratings to securities by assessing the likelihood of an issuer and/or guarantor default. Higher credit ratings correspond to lower perceived credit risk and lower credit ratings correspond to higher perceived credit risk. Credit ratings may be upgraded or downgraded from time to time as an NRSRO's assessment of the financial condition of a party obligated to make payments with respect to such securities and credit risk changes. The impact of any credit rating downgrade can be uncertain. Credit rating downgrades may lead to increased interest rates and volatility in financial markets, which in turn could negatively affect the value of the Fund's portfolio holdings, its share price and its investment performance. Credit ratings are not a guarantee of quality. Credit ratings may lag behind the current financial conditions of the issuer and/or guarantor and do not provide assurance against default or other loss of money. Credit ratings do not protect against a decline in the value of a security. If a security has not received a rating, the Fund must rely entirely upon the Adviser's credit assessment.
Fixed-income securities generally compensate for greater credit risk by paying interest at a higher rate. The difference between the yield of a security and the yield of a U.S. Treasury security or other appropriate benchmark with a comparable maturity (the “spread”) measures the additional interest paid for risk. Spreads may increase generally in response to adverse economic or market conditions. A security's spread may also increase if the security's rating is lowered, or the security is perceived to have an increased credit risk. An increase in the spread will cause the price of the security to decline if interest rates remain unchanged.
Finally, the securities in which the Fund invests may include those issued by governments, including, for example, a state or local government, or other political subdivisions or authorities, or directly or indirectly supported by taxes, assessments, tolls, fees or other revenue collected by or otherwise derived by or through such issuers. Such securities, like other securities that may be invested in by the Fund, have credit risk. Like other issuers, there is no guarantee that the issuers of such securities will have sufficient revenues to satisfy their obligations (such as, for example, the payment of interest or principal when due) with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. For example, in the case of certain of these issuers, legal,
7

Table of Contents
economic, political or other developments may raise impairments (such as, for example, limitations under applicable law on the issuer's authority to raise taxes, prolonged budgetary processes, declining real estate values and declining tax revenues) to such an issuer's budgetary flexibility and liquidity, and its ability to satisfy its obligations with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. Such impairments may cause a downgrade in the credit ratings of such an issuer, or the securities issued or supported by it, and may cause such an issuer to defer payment of certain obligations, reduce or eliminate appropriations and/or default on its obligations. In such situations, the credit risk of such securities invested in by the Fund will increase. Like other issuers and securities, the likelihood that the credit risk associated with such issuers and such securities will increase is greater during times of economic stress and financial instability. As a result, in such situations, there would be heightened risk that there could be an interruption in payments to bondholders in some cases. There also could be a reduction in the market value of the bonds held by the Fund, which could adversely affect the Fund's net asset value or the distributions paid by the Fund.
COUNTERPARTY CREDIT RISK
Counterparty credit risk includes the possibility that a party to a transaction involving the Fund will fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategy.
Interest Rate Risk
Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) rise and fall in response to changes in the interest rate paid by similar securities. Generally, when interest rates rise, prices of fixed-income securities fall. However, market factors, such as the demand for particular fixed-income securities, may cause the price of certain fixed-income securities to fall, while the prices of other securities rise or remain unchanged.
Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing short-term securities.
Certain factors, such as the presence of call features, may cause a particular fixed-income security, or the Fund as a whole, to exhibit less sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Certain of the Fund's investments may also be valued, in part, by reference to the relative relationship between interest rates on tax-exempt securities and taxable securities, respectively. When the market for tax-exempt securities underperforms (or outperforms) the market for taxable securities, the value of these investments may be negatively affected (or positively affected).
Call Risk
Call risk is the possibility that an issuer may redeem a fixed-income security (including a tax-exempt security) before maturity (a “call”) at a price below or above its current market price. An increase in the likelihood of a call may reduce the security's price.
If a fixed-income security is called, the Fund may have to reinvest the proceeds in other fixed-income securities with lower interest rates, higher credit risks or other less favorable characteristics.
Sector Risk
A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities. Developments affecting companies with similar characteristics might include changes in interest rates, changes in economic cycles affecting credit losses and regulatory changes.
TAX RISK
In order to pay interest that is exempt from federal or state/local regular income tax, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable.
Changes or proposed changes in federal, state or local tax laws may cause the prices of tax-exempt securities to fall and/or may affect the tax-exempt status of the securities in which the Fund invests. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.

Table of Contents
LIQUIDITY RISK
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss. An inability to sell portfolio securities may result from adverse market developments or investor perceptions regarding the portfolio securities. While the Fund endeavors to maintain a high level of liquidity in its portfolio so that it can satisfy redemption requests, the Fund's ability to sell portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting particular issuers or credit enhancement providers, or due to general market conditions and a lack of willing buyers.
CREDIT ENHANCEMENT RISK
The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). Credit enhancement is designed to help assure timely payment of the security; it does not protect the Fund against losses caused by declines in a security's value due to changes in market conditions. Securities subject to credit enhancement generally would be assigned a lower credit rating if the rating were based primarily on the credit quality of the issuer without regard to the credit enhancement. If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded.
A single enhancement provider may provide credit enhancement to more than one of the Fund's investments. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund, as the Fund may invest in securities credit enhanced by banks or by bond insurers without limit. Bond insurers that provide credit enhancement for large segments of the fixed-income markets, including the municipal bond market, may be more susceptible to being downgraded or defaulting during recessions or similar periods of economic stress.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH INVESTING SHARE PURCHASE PROCEEDS
On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the Fund holds cash, or if the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the portfolio, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. The larger the amount that must be invested or the greater the difference between the yield of the securities purchased and the yield of the existing investments, the greater the impact will be on the yield of the Fund. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF AMORTIZED COST
In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce, to the extent practicable, such dilution or unfair results, including, but not limited to, considering suspending redemption of Shares and liquidating the Fund under Rule 22e-3 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
ADDITIONAL FACTORS AFFECTING YIELD
There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary. A low interest rate environment may prevent the Fund from providing a positive yield or paying Fund expenses out of current income and could impair the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV. The Fund's yield could also be negatively affected (both in absolute terms, and as compared to other money market funds) by aspects of its investment program (for example, its investment policies, strategies or limitations) or its operational policies (for example, its cut-off time for purchases and redemptions of Shares).
California Risk
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, the Fund may be subject to additional risks compared to a money market fund that invests in multiple states.
California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Major components include high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's location is a benefit to its trade component; however, but also leads to above average exposure to international economic conditions.
9

Table of Contents
California's financial operations face rather significant structural budget impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance. Past periods of dramatic revenue underperformance have resulted in significant budgetary deficits and reduced liquidity.
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, its performance also may be negatively affected by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the creditworthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy.
technology Risk
The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
What Do Shares Cost?
CALCULATION OF NET ASSET VALUE
The Fund attempts to stabilize the NAV of its Shares at $1.00 by valuing the portfolio securities using the amortized cost method. In addition, for regulatory purposes, the Fund calculates a market-based NAV per Share on a periodic basis. The Fund cannot guarantee that its NAV will always remain at $1.00 per Share. The Fund does not charge a front-end sales charge.
You can purchase, redeem or exchange Shares any day the NYSE is open (a “Regular Business Day”). You may also be able to purchase and redeem (but not exchange) Shares on certain days that the NYSE is closed on an unscheduled basis due to unforeseen or emergency circumstances, if the Fund's Board determines to allow Fund Share transactions on such days (a “Special Trading Day”). If the Fund declares a Special Trading Day, information regarding shareholder trading activities for the Special Trading Day (such as when NAV, and entitlement to that day's dividend, will be determined) will be available by calling the Fund at 1-800-341-7400 and will be posted on Federated's website at FederatedInvestors.com. The information set forth in this Prospectus regarding times relevant to NAV determination and dividend entitlement applies only to Regular Business Days. Please note that the times that might be specified for NAV determination and dividend entitlement on a Special Trading Day would not necessarily be the same as set forth in this Prospectus with respect to Regular Business Days. Although Federated will attempt to make such information available in advance of a particular Special Trading Day, given the nature of Special Trading Days, it may not be able to do so until the morning of the Special Trading Day.
When the Fund receives your transaction request in proper form (as described in this Prospectus), it is processed at the next determined NAV. NAV is determined at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and as of the end of regular trading on the NYSE (normally, 4:00 p.m.) Eastern time each day the NYSE is open. The times as of when NAV is determined, and when orders must be placed, may be changed as permitted by the SEC.
How is the Fund Sold?
The Fund offers five Share classes: Service Shares, Institutional Shares, Cash II Shares, Capital Shares and Cash Series Shares, each representing interests in a single portfolio of securities. This Prospectus relates only to Cash II Shares. All Share classes have different expenses which affect their performance. The Institutional Shares, which are offered by separate prospectus, may be preferable for shareholders purchasing $25,000 or more. Contact your financial intermediary or call 1-800-341-7400 for more information concerning the other classes.
The Fund's Distributor, Federated Securities Corp., markets the Shares described in this Prospectus to financial institutions acting in an agency or fiduciary capacity, or to individuals, directly or through financial intermediaries. The Fund may not be a suitable investment for retirement plans or for non-California taxpayers because it invests in California tax-exempt securities. Under the Distributor's Contract with the Fund, the Distributor offers Shares on a continuous, best-efforts basis. The Distributor is a subsidiary of Federated Investors, Inc. (“Federated”).
Payments to Financial Intermediaries
The Fund and its affiliated service providers may pay fees as described below to financial intermediaries (such as broker-dealers, banks, investment advisers or third-party administrators) whose customers are shareholders of the Fund.
10

Table of Contents
RULE 12b-1 FEES
The Board has adopted a Rule 12b-1 Plan, which allows payment of marketing fees of up to 0.20% of average net assets to the Distributor for the sale, distribution, administration and customer servicing of the Fund's Cash II Shares. When the Distributor receives Rule 12b-1 Fees, it may pay some or all of them to financial intermediaries whose customers purchase Shares. Because these Shares pay marketing fees on an ongoing basis, your investment cost may be higher over time than other shares with different marketing fees.
SERVICE FEES
The Fund may pay Service Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to financial intermediaries or to Federated Shareholder Services Company (FSSC), a subsidiary of Federated, for providing services to shareholders and maintaining shareholder accounts. Intermediaries that receive Service Fees may include a company affiliated with management of Federated. If a financial intermediary receives Service Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees on that same account.
ACCOUNT ADMINISTRATION FEES
The Fund may pay Account Administration Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to banks that are not registered as broker-dealers or investment advisers for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Account Administration Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Service Fees or Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
RECORDKEEPING FEES
The Fund may pay Recordkeeping Fees on an average-net-assets basis or on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing recordkeeping services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Recordkeeping Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees or Networking Fees on that same account.
NETWORKING FEES
The Fund may reimburse Networking Fees on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders on certain non-omnibus accounts. If a financial intermediary receives Networking Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS TO FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES
The Distributor may pay, out of its own resources, amounts (including items of material value) to certain financial intermediaries that support the sale of Shares or provide services to Fund shareholders. The amounts of these payments could be significant, and may create an incentive for the financial intermediary or its employees or associated persons to recommend or sell Shares of the Fund to you. In some cases, such payments may be made by or funded from the resources of companies affiliated with the Distributor (including the Adviser). These payments are not reflected in the fees and expenses listed in the fee table section of the Fund's Prospectus and described above because they are not paid by the Fund.
These payments are negotiated and may be based on such factors as: the number or value of Shares that the financial intermediary sells or may sell; the value of client assets invested; or the type and nature of services or support furnished by the financial intermediary. These payments may be in addition to payments, as described above, made by the Fund to the financial intermediary. In connection with these payments, the financial intermediary may elevate the prominence or profile of the Fund and/or other Federated funds, within the financial intermediary's organization by, for example, placement on a list of preferred or recommended funds and/or granting the Distributor preferential or enhanced opportunities to promote the funds in various ways within the financial intermediary's organization. You can ask your financial intermediary for information about any payments it receives from the Distributor or the Fund and any services provided.
How to Purchase Shares
You may purchase Shares through a financial intermediary, directly from the Fund or through an exchange from another Federated fund. The Fund reserves the right to reject any request to purchase or exchange Shares. New investors must submit a completed New Account Form.
The minimum initial investment for Fund Shares is generally $10,000. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount.
11

Table of Contents
An account may be opened with a smaller amount as long as the $10,000 minimum is reached within 90 days. An institutional investor's minimum investment is calculated by combining all accounts it maintains with the Fund. Financial intermediaries may impose higher or lower minimum investment requirements on their customers than those imposed by the Fund. Keep in mind that financial intermediaries may charge you fees for their services in connection with your Share transactions.

Table of Contents
If you request a redemption of Shares recently purchased by check (including a cashier's check or certified check), money order, bank draft or ACH, your redemption proceeds may not be made available for up to seven calendar days to allow the Fund to collect payment on the instrument used to purchase such Shares. If the purchase instrument does not clear, your purchase order will be canceled and you will be responsible for any losses incurred by the Fund as a result of your canceled order.
Any attempt to redeem Shares through checkwriting or debit card before the purchase instrument has cleared will be automatically rejected.
In addition, the right of redemption may be suspended, or the payment of proceeds may be delayed, during any period:
when the NYSE is closed, other than customary weekend and holiday closings;
when trading on the NYSE is restricted, as determined by the SEC;
in which an emergency exists, as determined by the SEC, so that disposal of the Fund's investments or determination of its NAV is not reasonably practicable; or
in which there are emergency conditions, including liquidation of the Fund, as provided in Section 22(e), and rules thereunder, of the Investment Company Act of 1940.
You will not accrue interest or dividends on uncashed redemption checks from the Fund if those checks are undeliverable and returned to the Fund.
EXCHANGE PRIVILEGE
You may exchange Shares of the Fund for shares of any Federated fund or share class that does not have a stated sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge, except Federated Liberty U.S. Government Money Market Trust and R class. To do this, you must:
ensure that the account registrations are identical;
meet any applicable minimum initial investment requirements; and
receive a prospectus for the fund into which you wish to exchange.
An exchange is treated as a redemption and a subsequent purchase, and is a taxable transaction. The Fund may modify or terminate the exchange privilege at any time.
Systematic Withdrawal/Exchange Program
You may automatically redeem or exchange Shares. The minimum amount for all new or revised systematic redemptions or exchanges of Shares is $50 per transaction per fund. Complete the appropriate section of the New Account Form or an Account Service Options Form or contact your financial intermediary or the Fund.

DIVIDENDS AND CAPITAL GAINS
The Fund declares any dividends daily and pays them monthly to shareholders.
The Fund does not expect to realize any capital gains or losses. However, the Fund may realize capital gains on certain securities, such as synthetic variable rate demand instruments, that may be redeemed in certain circumstances at a premium to their face value. If capital gains or losses were to occur, they could result in an increase or decrease in dividends. The Fund pays any capital gains at least annually, and may make such special distributions of dividends and capital gains as may be necessary to meet applicable regulatory requirements. Your dividends and capital gains distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional Shares without a sales charge, unless you elect cash payments. Dividends may also be reinvested without sales charges in shares of any class of any other Federated fund of which you are already a shareholder.
If you have elected to receive dividends and/or capital gain distributions in cash, and your check is returned by the postal or other delivery service as “undeliverable,” or you do not respond to mailings from Federated with regard to uncashed distribution checks, your distribution option will automatically be converted to having all dividends and capital gains reinvested in additional Shares. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks. See “Tax Information” below for information on the tax consequences of the Fund realizing a capital gain.
Under the federal securities laws, the Fund is required to provide a notice to shareholders regarding the source of distributions made by the Fund if such distributions are from sources other than ordinary investment income. In addition, important information regarding the Fund's distributions, if applicable, is available via the link to the Fund and share class name at www.Federatedinvestors.com/FundInformation.
ACCOUNTS WITH LOW BALANCES
Federated reserves the right to close accounts if redemptions or exchanges cause the account balance to fall below $10,000. Before an account is closed, you will be notified and allowed at least 30 days to purchase additional Shares to meet the minimum.
TAX INFORMATION
The Fund sends an IRS Form 1099 and an annual statement of your account activity to assist you in completing your federal, state and local tax returns. It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes, although the Fund's dividends will be exempt from the California taxes to the extent they are derived from interest on obligations exempt from such taxes. Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Distributions of net short-term capital gains are taxable to you as ordinary income. Distributions of net long-term capital gains are taxable to you as long-term capital gains regardless of how long you have owned your Shares. Capital gains and non-exempt dividends are taxable whether paid in cash or reinvested in the Fund. Redemptions and exchanges are taxable sales. Please consult your tax adviser regarding your federal, state and local tax liability.
FREQUENT TRADING POLICIES
Given the short-term nature of the Fund's investments and its use of the amortized cost method for calculating the NAV of Fund Shares, the Fund does not anticipate that in the normal case frequent or short-term trading into and out of the Fund will have significant adverse consequences for the Fund and its shareholders. For this reason and because the Fund is intended to be used as a liquid short-term investment, the Fund's Board has not adopted policies or procedures to monitor or discourage frequent or short-term trading of the Fund's Shares. Regardless of their frequency or short-term nature, purchases and redemptions of Fund Shares can have adverse effects on the management of the Fund's portfolio and its performance.
Other funds in the Federated family of funds may impose monitoring policies. Under normal market conditions, such monitoring policies are designed to protect the funds being monitored and their shareholders, and the operation of such policies and shareholder investments under such monitoring are not expected to have a materially adverse impact on the Federated funds or their shareholders. If you plan to exchange your Fund Shares for shares of another Federated fund, please read the prospectus of that other Federated fund for more information.

Who Manages the Fund?
The Board governs the Fund. The Board selects and oversees the Adviser, Federated Investment Management Company. The Adviser manages the Fund's assets, including buying and selling portfolio securities. Federated Advisory Services Company (FASC), an affiliate of the Adviser, provides certain support services to the Adviser. The fee for these services is paid by the Adviser and not by the Fund.
The address of the Adviser and FASC is Federated Investors Tower, 1001 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-3779.
The Adviser and other subsidiaries of Federated advise approximately 135 equity, fixed-income and money market mutual funds as well as a variety of other pooled investment vehicles, private investment companies and customized separately managed accounts (including non-U.S./offshore funds) which totaled approximately $376.1 billion in assets as of December 31, 2013. Federated was established in 1955 and is one of the largest investment managers in the United States with approximately 1,400 employees. Federated provides investment products to approximately 6,000 investment professionals and institutions.
The Adviser advises approximately 106 fixed-income and money market mutual funds (including sub-advised funds) and private investment companies, which totaled approximately $254.4 billion in assets as of December 31, 2013.
ADVISORY FEES
The Fund's investment advisory contract provides for payment to the Adviser of an annual investment advisory fee of 0.40% of the Fund's average daily net assets. The Adviser may voluntarily waive a portion of its fee or reimburse the Fund for certain operating expenses. The Adviser and its affiliates have also agreed to certain “Fee Limits” as described in the footnote to the “Risk/Return Summary: Fees and Expenses” table found in the “Fund Summary” section of the Prospectus.
A discussion of the Board's review of the Fund's investment advisory contract is available in the Fund's shareholder reports as they become available.

Appendix A: Hypothetical Investment and Expense Information
The following chart provides additional hypothetical information about the effect of the Fund's expenses, including investment advisory fees and other Fund costs, on the Fund's assumed returns over a 10-year period. The chart shows the estimated expenses that would be incurred in respect of a hypothetical investment of $10,000, assuming a 5% return each year, and no redemption of Shares. The chart also assumes that the Fund's annual expense ratio stays the same throughout the 10-year period and that all dividends and distributions are reinvested. The annual expense ratio used in the chart is the same as stated in the “Fees and Expenses” table of this Prospectus (and thus may not reflect any fee waiver or expense reimbursement currently in effect). The maximum amount of any sales charge that might be imposed on the purchase of Shares (and deducted from the hypothetical initial investment of $10,000; the “Front-End Sales Charge”) is reflected in the “Hypothetical Expenses” column. The hypothetical investment information does not reflect the effect of charges (if any) normally applicable to redemptions of Shares (e.g., deferred sales charges, redemption fees). Mutual fund returns, as well as fees and expenses, may fluctuate over time, and your actual investment returns and total expenses may be higher or lower than those shown below.

Example
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your Shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that operating expenses are as shown in the table above and remain the same. Although your actual costs and returns may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year $ 86
3 Years $ 268
5 Years $ 466
10 Years $1,037
RISK/RETURN SUMMARY: INVESTMENTS, RISKS and PERFORMANCE
What are the Fund's Main Investment Strategies?
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund invests in a portfolio of securities maturing in 397 days or less.
1

Table of Contents
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. The types of securities in which the Fund may principally invest include: (a) tax-exempt securities such as the following types, some of which may be subject to credit enhancement: variable rate demand instruments, municipal notes, general obligation bonds, special revenue bonds, private activity bonds and tax-exempt commercial paper; and (b) interests in securities of other investment companies.
In pursuing its investment objective and implementing its investment strategies, the Fund will comply with Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (“Rule 2a-7”). The Fund's investment adviser may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to seek appropriate risk adjusted returns and provide diversification.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
What are the Main Risks of Investing in the Fund?
All mutual funds take investment risks. Therefore, even though the Fund is a money market fund that seeks to maintain a stable NAV, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. The primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund, or reduce the Fund's daily dividends include:
Issuer Credit Risk. It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Counterparty Credit Risk. A party to a transaction involving the Fund may fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategies.
Interest Rate Risk. Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) generally fall when interest rates rise. Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities.
Call Risk. The Fund's performance may be adversely affected by the possibility that an issuer of a security held by the Fund may redeem the security prior to maturity at a price below or above its current market value.
Sector Risk. A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities.
Tax Risk. In order to be tax exempt, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Liquidity Risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss.
Credit Enhancement Risk. The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund.
Risk Associated with Investing Share Purchase Proceeds. On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the Fund's portfolio, or if the Fund holds cash, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.

Table of Contents
Risk Associated with use of Amortized Cost. In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce to the extent practicable such dilution or unfair results.
Additional Factors Affecting Yield. There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary.
California Risk. Because the Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in securities of California issuers, an investment in the Fund may involve additional risks compared to a fully diversified money market fund that invests in multiple states, and the Fund's performance also may be negatively impacted by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the credit worthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy. California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world with major components including high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's budgetary and fiscal operations face certain structural impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance.
Technology Risk. The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus.

FUND MANAGEMENT
The Fund's Investment Adviser is Federated Investment Management Company.
Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The minimum initial investment amount for the Fund's CAP class is generally $25,000 and there is no minimum subsequent investment amount. The minimum investment amount for Systematic Investment Programs is $50.
You may purchase, redeem or exchange Shares of the Fund on any day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open. Shares may be purchased through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund, by wire or by check. Please note that certain purchase restrictions may apply. Redeem or exchange Shares through a financial intermediary or directly from the Fund by telephone at 1-800-341-7400 or by mail.
TAX INFORMATION
It is anticipated that Fund distributions will be primarily dividends that are exempt from federal regular income tax, although a portion of the Fund's dividends may not be tax exempt. Dividends may be subject to state and local taxes (except for California taxes, to the extent derived from California tax-exempt investments and eligible for tax-exempt treatment under California law). Although the Fund does not seek to realize capital gains, the Fund may realize and distribute capital gains from time to time as a result of the Fund's normal investment activities. Any Fund distributions of capital gains are taxable at applicable capital gains rates. The Fund is generally not a suitable investment for retirement accounts.
Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and/or its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund Shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary's website for more information.
What are the Fund's Investment Strategies?
While there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective, it endeavors to do so by following the strategies and policies described in this Prospectus.
The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of short-term, high-quality California tax-exempt securities maturing in 397 days or less. The Fund will invest its assets so that normally, distributions of annual interest income are exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. Interest from the Fund's investments may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT).
Federated Investment Management Company (“Adviser”) actively manages the Fund's portfolio, seeking to limit the credit risk taken by the Fund and to select investments, including securities subject to the AMT with appropriate risk-adjusted returns. The Adviser also may invest in securities subject to the AMT in an attempt to provide diversification.
The Adviser performs a fundamental credit analysis to develop an approved database of issuers and securities that meet the Adviser's standards for minimal credit risk. The Adviser monitors the credit risks of all portfolio securities on an ongoing basis by reviewing periodic financial data and ratings of nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (NRSROs).
The Adviser targets a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity (DWAM) range based upon its interest rate outlook and the tax-exempt securities available. The Adviser formulates its interest rate outlook by analyzing a variety of factors such as (among others): current and expected U.S. economic growth; current and expected interest rates and inflation; and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy. The Adviser structures the portfolio by investing in variable rate demand instruments

Table of Contents
and municipal notes, as well as other permissible investments as described in this Prospectus and in the Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI). The Adviser generally shortens the portfolio's maturity when it expects interest rates to rise and extends the maturity when it expects interest rates to fall. This strategy seeks to enhance the returns from favorable interest rate changes and reduce the effect of unfavorable changes.
The Fund will: (1) maintain a DWAM of 60 days or less; and (2) maintain a weighted average life (WAL) of 120 days or less. Certain of the securities in which the Fund invests may pay interest at a rate that is periodically adjusted (“Adjustable Rate Securities”). For purposes of calculating DWAM, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security generally will be the period remaining until its next interest rate adjustment. For purposes of calculating WAL, the maturity of an Adjustable Rate Security will be its stated final maturity, without regard to interest rate adjustments; accordingly, the 120-day WAL limitation could serve to limit the Fund's ability to invest in Adjustable Rate Securities.
Because the Fund refers to California municipal investments in its name, it has an investment policy that it will normally invest its assets so that at least 80% of its annual interest income will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax or so that 80% of its net assets is invested in obligations, the interest income from which is exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax.
Only for purposes of compliance with Rule 35d-1, the Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of the income that it distributes will be exempt from federal regular income tax and California state income tax. This policy may not be changed without shareholder approval.
Temporary Investments
The Fund may temporarily depart from its principal investment strategies by investing its assets in taxable securities or holding cash. It may do this in response to unusual circumstances, such as: adverse market, economic or other conditions (for example, to help avoid potential losses, or during periods when there is a shortage of appropriate tax-exempt securities); to maintain liquidity to meet shareholder redemptions; or to accommodate cash inflows. It is possible that such temporary investments could affect the Fund's investment returns. If the Fund invests in taxable securities, it may receive and distribute taxable income to investors and to that extent to fail to meet its investment objectives.
What are the Fund's Principal Investments?
The following provides general information on the Fund's principal investments. The Fund's Statement of Additional Information (SAI) provides information about the Fund's non-principal investments and may provide additional information about the Fund's principal investments.
TAX-EXEMPT SECURITIES
Tax-exempt securities are fixed-income securities that, in the opinion of bond counsel to the issuer or on the basis of another authority believed by the Adviser to be reliable, pay interest that is not subject to federal regular income taxes. Fixed-income securities pay interest, dividends or distributions at a specified rate. The rate may be a fixed percentage of the principal or adjusted periodically. In addition, the issuer of a fixed-income security must repay the principal amount of the security, normally within a specified time. Typically, states, counties, cities and other political subdivisions and authorities issue tax-exempt securities. The market categorizes tax-exempt securities by their source of repayment. Certain of these tax-exempt securities may be subject to credit enhancement. The following describes the principal types of tax-exempt securities in which the Fund may invest:
Variable Rate Demand Instruments (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Variable rate demand instruments are tax-exempt securities that require the issuer or a third party, such as a dealer or bank (the “Demand Provider”), to repurchase the security for its face value upon demand. The securities also pay interest at a variable rate intended to cause the securities to trade at their face value. Some variable rate demand instruments are “conditional,” so that the occurrence of certain conditions discharges the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security. Other variable rate demand instruments are “unconditional,” so that there are no conditions under which the Demand Provider's obligation to repurchase the security can terminate. The Fund treats variable rate demand instruments as short-term securities even though their maturity may extend beyond 397 days because, within 397 days, their variable interest rate adjusts in response to changes in market rates and the repayment of their principal amount can be demanded. Certain variable rate demand instruments that may be invested in by the Fund, referred to as “synthetic” variable rate demand instruments, have certain features, such as call features, that make it possible that the Fund will realize capital gains.

Table of Contents
Municipal Notes (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Municipal notes are short-term, tax-exempt securities. Many municipalities issue such notes to fund their current operations before collecting taxes or other municipal revenues. Municipalities may also issue notes to fund capital projects prior to issuing long-term bonds. The issuers typically repay the notes at the end of their fiscal year, either with taxes, other revenues or proceeds from newly issued notes or bonds.
General Obligation Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
General obligation bonds are supported by the issuer's power to exact property or other taxes. The issuer must impose and collect taxes sufficient to pay principal and interest on the bonds. However, the issuer's authority to impose additional taxes may be limited by its charter or state law.
Special Revenue Bonds (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Special revenue bonds are payable solely from specific revenues received by the issuer such as specific taxes, assessments, tolls or fees. Bondholders may not collect from the municipality's general taxes or revenues. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to build a toll road, and pledge the tolls to repay the bonds. Therefore, a shortfall in the tolls normally would result in a default on the bonds, or in certain cases, may result in a reduction in payments received in respect of the bonds.
Private Activity Bonds (A Type of Special Revenue Bond)
Private activity bonds are special revenue bonds used to finance private projects. A certain percentage of the proceeds from a private activity bond is used for a private business use or a certain percentage of the debt service regarding a private activity bond is paid directly or indirectly from a private business use. A private business use is a trade or business carried on by any person or entity other than a governmental unit. Private activity bonds are secured primarily by revenues derived from loan repayments or lease payments due from the private entity, which may or may not be guaranteed by a parent company or otherwise secured. Private activity bonds generally are not secured by a pledge of the taxing power of the issuer of such bonds. For example, a municipality may issue bonds to finance a new factory to improve its local economy. The municipality would lend the proceeds from its bonds to the company using the factory, and the company would agree to make loan payments sufficient to cover interest and principal payments on the bonds. The bonds would be payable from the company's loan payments, and generally not from any other revenues of the municipality. Therefore, any default of the loan normally would result in a default on the bonds.
Types of private activity bonds include, for example: bonds issued to obtain funds to provide water, sewage and solid waste facilities, qualified residential rental projects, certain local electric, gas and other heating and cooling facilities, qualified hazardous waste facilities, high-speed intercity rail facilities, certain airports, docks, wharves and mass transportation facilities and qualified mortgages; qualified student loan bonds; qualified redevelopment bonds; and bonds used for certain organizations exempt from federal income taxation (qualified 501(c)(3) bonds).
The interest on many types of private activity bonds is subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for individuals and corporations (AMT). The Fund may invest in bonds subject to AMT.
Tax-Exempt Commercial Paper (A Type of Tax-Exempt Security)
Tax-exempt commercial paper is an obligation issued by a tax-exempt issuer with a maturity of generally less than nine months. Tax-exempt issuers may issue commercial paper to pay for current expenditures or other permissible activities. Tax-exempt issuers may constantly reissue their commercial paper and use the proceeds (or other sources) to repay maturing paper. If the tax-exempt issuer cannot continue to obtain liquidity in this fashion, and if there is not another available source of liquidity, its commercial paper may default or there may be a reduction in payments received in repayment of the tax-exempt commercial paper.
Credit Enhancement
The Fund may invest in tax-exempt securities with credit enhancement. Credit enhancement consists of an arrangement in which a company agrees to pay amounts due on a fixed-income security if the issuer defaults. In some cases, the company providing credit enhancement makes all payments directly to the security holders and receives reimbursement from the issuer. Normally, the credit enhancer has greater financial resources and liquidity than the issuer. For this reason, the Adviser may evaluate the credit risk of a fixed-income security based solely upon its credit enhancement.
Common types of credit enhancement include guarantees, letters of credit, bond insurance and surety bonds. Credit enhancement also includes arrangements where securities or other liquid assets secure payment of a fixed-income security. If a default occurs, these assets may be sold and the proceeds paid to the security's holders. Either form of credit enhancement reduces credit risks by providing another source of payment for a fixed-income security.

Investing in Securities of Other Investment Companies
The Fund may invest its assets in shares of other investment companies as an efficient means of implementing its investment strategies and/or managing its uninvested cash. These investments may include shares of an affiliated money market fund or preferred shares of a closed-end fund that are eligible for purchase by money market funds (generally, because such preferred shares are structured as unconditional demand instruments with a third-party Demand Provider). Other investment companies are managed independently of the Fund and incur additional fees and/or expenses which would, therefore, be borne indirectly by the Fund in connection with any such investment. However, the Adviser believes that the benefits and efficiencies of this approach should outweigh the potential additional fees and/or expenses. The Fund may invest in money market securities directly.
Investment Ratings
The securities in which the Fund invests must be rated in one of the two highest short-term rating categories (without regard for gradations or sub-categories) by one or more NRSROs or be deemed by the Adviser to be of comparable quality to securities having such ratings.
The Fund will rely on the two highest ratings given to a security by the NRSROs for purposes of complying with this requirement. If one or both of the two highest ratings are in the second highest short-term rating category, the security is treated as a Second Tier Security. Generally, Rule 2a-7 prohibits the Fund from investing more than 3% of its assets in Second Tier Securities. The Fund complies with these rating requirements at the time a security is acquired. If a security is downgraded to Second Tier after its acquisition, the Fund may continue to hold the security even if the portfolio exceeds Rule 2a-7's limits on Second Tier Securities. Other factors, such as substantial redemptions, may cause the Fund's portfolio to exceed Rule 2a-7 limits on the acquisition of securities. The Fund may continue to hold securities in excess of these limits, even if the Fund has the right to tender the security for purchase for its amortized cost value.
What are the Specific Risks of Investing in the Fund?
The following provides general information on the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments. These are the primary factors that may negatively impact the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV, delay the payment of redemptions by the Fund or reduce the Fund's daily dividends. Any additional risks associated with the Fund's non-principal investments are described in the Fund's SAI. The Fund's SAI also may provide additional information about the risks associated with the Fund's principal investments.
ISSUER Credit Risk
It is possible that interest or principal on securities will not be paid when due. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing higher-quality securities.
Many fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) receive credit ratings from NRSROs such as Fitch Rating Service, Moody's Investor Services, Inc. and Standard & Poor's that assign ratings to securities by assessing the likelihood of an issuer and/or guarantor default. Higher credit ratings correspond to lower perceived credit risk and lower credit ratings correspond to higher perceived credit risk. Credit ratings may be upgraded or downgraded from time to time as an NRSRO's assessment of the financial condition of a party obligated to make payments with respect to such securities and credit risk changes. The impact of any credit rating downgrade can be uncertain. Credit rating downgrades may lead to increased interest rates and volatility in financial markets, which in turn could negatively affect the value of the Fund's portfolio holdings, its share price and its investment performance. Credit ratings are not a guarantee of quality. Credit ratings may lag behind the current financial conditions of the issuer and/or guarantor and do not provide assurance against default or other loss of money. Credit ratings do not protect against a decline in the value of a security. If a security has not received a rating, the Fund must rely entirely upon the Adviser's credit assessment.
Fixed-income securities generally compensate for greater credit risk by paying interest at a higher rate. The difference between the yield of a security and the yield of a U.S. Treasury security or other appropriate benchmark with a comparable maturity (the “spread”) measures the additional interest paid for risk. Spreads may increase generally in response to adverse economic or market conditions. A security's spread may also increase if the security's rating is lowered, or the security is perceived to have an increased credit risk. An increase in the spread will cause the price of the security to decline if interest rates remain unchanged.
Finally, the securities in which the Fund invests may include those issued by governments, including, for example, a state or local government, or other political subdivisions or authorities, or directly or indirectly supported by taxes, assessments, tolls, fees or other revenue collected by or otherwise derived by or through such issuers. Such securities, like other securities that may be invested in by the Fund, have credit risk. Like other issuers, there is no guarantee that the issuers of such securities will have sufficient revenues to satisfy their obligations (such as, for example, the payment of interest or principal when due) with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. For example, in the case of certain of these issuers, legal,
7

Table of Contents
economic, political or other developments may raise impairments (such as, for example, limitations under applicable law on the issuer's authority to raise taxes, prolonged budgetary processes, declining real estate values and declining tax revenues) to such an issuer's budgetary flexibility and liquidity, and its ability to satisfy its obligations with respect to such securities invested in by the Fund. Such impairments may cause a downgrade in the credit ratings of such an issuer, or the securities issued or supported by it, and may cause such an issuer to defer payment of certain obligations, reduce or eliminate appropriations and/or default on its obligations. In such situations, the credit risk of such securities invested in by the Fund will increase. Like other issuers and securities, the likelihood that the credit risk associated with such issuers and such securities will increase is greater during times of economic stress and financial instability. As a result, in such situations, there would be heightened risk that there could be an interruption in payments to bondholders in some cases. There also could be a reduction in the market value of the bonds held by the Fund, which could adversely affect the Fund's net asset value or the distributions paid by the Fund.
COUNTERPARTY CREDIT RISK
Counterparty credit risk includes the possibility that a party to a transaction involving the Fund will fail to meet its obligations. This could cause the Fund to lose money or to lose the benefit of the transaction or prevent the Fund from selling or buying other securities to implement its investment strategy.
Interest Rate Risk
Prices of fixed-income securities (including tax-exempt securities) rise and fall in response to changes in the interest rate paid by similar securities. Generally, when interest rates rise, prices of fixed-income securities fall. However, market factors, such as the demand for particular fixed-income securities, may cause the price of certain fixed-income securities to fall, while the prices of other securities rise or remain unchanged.
Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer maturities. Money market funds try to minimize this risk by purchasing short-term securities.
Certain factors, such as the presence of call features, may cause a particular fixed-income security, or the Fund as a whole, to exhibit less sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Certain of the Fund's investments may also be valued, in part, by reference to the relative relationship between interest rates on tax-exempt securities and taxable securities, respectively. When the market for tax-exempt securities underperforms (or outperforms) the market for taxable securities, the value of these investments may be negatively affected (or positively affected).
Call Risk
Call risk is the possibility that an issuer may redeem a fixed-income security (including a tax-exempt security) before maturity (a “call”) at a price below or above its current market price. An increase in the likelihood of a call may reduce the security's price.
If a fixed-income security is called, the Fund may have to reinvest the proceeds in other fixed-income securities with lower interest rates, higher credit risks or other less favorable characteristics.
Sector Risk
A substantial part of the Fund's portfolio may be comprised of securities issued or credit enhanced by businesses with similar characteristics or by issuers located in the same state. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to any economic, business, political or other developments which generally affect these issuers or entities. Developments affecting companies with similar characteristics might include changes in interest rates, changes in economic cycles affecting credit losses and regulatory changes.
TAX RISK
In order to pay interest that is exempt from federal or state/local regular income tax, tax-exempt securities must meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be taxable.
Changes or proposed changes in federal, state or local tax laws may cause the prices of tax-exempt securities to fall and/or may affect the tax-exempt status of the securities in which the Fund invests. Income from the Fund also may be subject to AMT.

Table of Contents
LIQUIDITY RISK
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will experience significant net redemptions of Fund Shares at a time when it cannot find willing buyers for its portfolio securities or can only sell its portfolio securities at a material loss. An inability to sell portfolio securities may result from adverse market developments or investor perceptions regarding the portfolio securities. While the Fund endeavors to maintain a high level of liquidity in its portfolio so that it can satisfy redemption requests, the Fund's ability to sell portfolio securities can deteriorate rapidly due to credit events affecting particular issuers or credit enhancement providers, or due to general market conditions and a lack of willing buyers.
CREDIT ENHANCEMENT RISK
The securities in which the Fund invests may be subject to credit enhancement (for example, guarantees, letters of credit or bond insurance). Credit enhancement is designed to help assure timely payment of the security; it does not protect the Fund against losses caused by declines in a security's value due to changes in market conditions. Securities subject to credit enhancement generally would be assigned a lower credit rating if the rating were based primarily on the credit quality of the issuer without regard to the credit enhancement. If the credit quality of the credit enhancement provider (for example, a bank or bond insurer) is downgraded, the rating on a security credit enhanced by such credit enhancement provider also may be downgraded.
A single enhancement provider may provide credit enhancement to more than one of the Fund's investments. Having multiple securities credit enhanced by the same enhancement provider will increase the adverse effects on the Fund that are likely to result from a downgrading of, or a default by, such an enhancement provider. Adverse developments in the banking or bond insurance industries also may negatively affect the Fund, as the Fund may invest in securities credit enhanced by banks or by bond insurers without limit. Bond insurers that provide credit enhancement for large segments of the fixed-income markets, including the municipal bond market, may be more susceptible to being downgraded or defaulting during recessions or similar periods of economic stress.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH INVESTING SHARE PURCHASE PROCEEDS
On days during which there are net purchases of Fund Shares, the Fund must invest the proceeds at prevailing market yields or hold cash. If the Fund holds cash, or if the yield of the securities purchased is less than that of the securities already in the portfolio, the Fund's yield will likely decrease. Conversely, net purchases on days on which short-term yields rise will likely cause the Fund's yield to increase. The larger the amount that must be invested or the greater the difference between the yield of the securities purchased and the yield of the existing investments, the greater the impact will be on the yield of the Fund. In the event of significant changes in short-term yields or significant net purchases, the Fund retains the discretion to close to new investments. However, the Fund is not required to close, and no assurance can be given that this will be done in any given circumstance.
RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF AMORTIZED COST
In the unlikely event that the Fund's Board of Trustees (“Board”) were to determine, pursuant to Rule 2a-7, that the extent of the deviation between the Fund's amortized cost per share and its market-based NAV per share may result in material dilution or other unfair results to shareholders, the Board will cause the Fund to take such action as it deems appropriate to eliminate or reduce, to the extent practicable, such dilution or unfair results, including, but not limited to, considering suspending redemption of Shares and liquidating the Fund under Rule 22e-3 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
ADDITIONAL FACTORS AFFECTING YIELD
There is no guarantee that the Fund will provide a certain level of income or that any such income will exceed the rate of inflation. Further, the Fund's yield will vary. A low interest rate environment may prevent the Fund from providing a positive yield or paying Fund expenses out of current income and could impair the Fund's ability to maintain a stable NAV. The Fund's yield could also be negatively affected (both in absolute terms, and as compared to other money market funds) by aspects of its investment program (for example, its investment policies, strategies or limitations) or its operational policies (for example, its cut-off time for purchases and redemptions of Shares).
California Risk
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, the Fund may be subject to additional risks compared to a money market fund that invests in multiple states.
California's credit strength is based on its large and diverse economy, manageable debt burden and strong demographics. California's diverse economy is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Major components include high technology, trade, entertainment, manufacturing, tourism, construction, agriculture and services. California's location is a benefit to its trade component; however, but also leads to above average exposure to international economic conditions.
9

Table of Contents
California's financial operations face rather significant structural budget impediments and rely on revenue sources which are extraordinarily sensitive to the economic environment. These conditions yield a long pattern of erratic financial performance. Past periods of dramatic revenue underperformance have resulted in significant budgetary deficits and reduced liquidity.
Since the Fund invests primarily in issuers from California, its performance also may be negatively affected by other local, state or regional factors, such as, for example, natural disasters, which may affect the creditworthiness of municipal issuers or otherwise disrupt the local, state or regional economy or certain sectors of the economy.
technology Risk
The Adviser uses various technology in managing the Fund, consistent with its investment objective and strategy described in this Prospectus. For example, proprietary and third-party data and systems are utilized to support decision making for the Fund. Data imprecision, software or other technology malfunctions, programming inaccuracies and similar circumstances may impair the performance of these systems, which may negatively affect Fund performance.
What Do Shares Cost?
CALCULATION OF NET ASSET VALUE
The Fund attempts to stabilize the NAV of its Shares at $1.00 by valuing the portfolio securities using the amortized cost method. In addition, for regulatory purposes, the Fund calculates a market-based NAV per Share on a periodic basis. The Fund cannot guarantee that its NAV will always remain at $1.00 per Share. The Fund does not charge a front-end sales charge.
You can purchase, redeem or exchange Shares any day the NYSE is open (a “Regular Business Day”). You may also be able to purchase and redeem (but not exchange) Shares on certain days that the NYSE is closed on an unscheduled basis due to unforeseen or emergency circumstances, if the Fund's Board determines to allow Fund Share transactions on such days (a “Special Trading Day”). If the Fund declares a Special Trading Day, information regarding shareholder trading activities for the Special Trading Day (such as when NAV, and entitlement to that day's dividend, will be determined) will be available by calling the Fund at 1-800-341-7400 and will be posted on Federated's website at FederatedInvestors.com. The information set forth in this Prospectus regarding times relevant to NAV determination and dividend entitlement applies only to Regular Business Days. Please note that the times that might be specified for NAV determination and dividend entitlement on a Special Trading Day would not necessarily be the same as set forth in this Prospectus with respect to Regular Business Days. Although Federated will attempt to make such information available in advance of a particular Special Trading Day, given the nature of Special Trading Days, it may not be able to do so until the morning of the Special Trading Day.
When the Fund receives your transaction request in proper form (as described in this Prospectus), it is processed at the next determined NAV. NAV is determined at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and as of the end of regular trading on the NYSE (normally, 4:00 p.m.) Eastern time each day the NYSE is open. The times as of when NAV is determined, and when orders must be placed, may be changed as permitted by the SEC.
How is the Fund Sold?
The Fund offers five Share classes: Service Shares, Institutional Shares, Cash II Shares, Capital Shares and Cash Series Shares, each representing interests in a single portfolio of securities. This Prospectus relates only to Capital Shares. All Share classes have different expenses which affect their performance. The Institutional Shares, which are offered by separate prospectus, may be preferable for shareholders purchasing $25,000 or more. Contact your financial intermediary or call 1-800-341-7400 for more information concerning the other classes.
The Fund's Distributor, Federated Securities Corp., markets the Shares described in this Prospectus to financial institutions acting in an agency or fiduciary capacity, or to individuals, directly or through financial intermediaries. The Fund may not be a suitable investment for retirement plans or for non-California taxpayers because it invests in California tax-exempt securities. Under the Distributor's Contract with the Fund, the Distributor offers Shares on a continuous, best-efforts basis. The Distributor is a subsidiary of Federated Investors, Inc. (“Federated”).
Payments to Financial Intermediaries
The Fund and its affiliated service providers may pay fees as described below to financial intermediaries (such as broker-dealers, banks, investment advisers or third-party administrators) whose customers are shareholders of the Fund.
10

Table of Contents
SERVICE FEES
The Fund may pay Service Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to financial intermediaries or to Federated Shareholder Services Company (FSSC), a subsidiary of Federated, for providing services to shareholders and maintaining shareholder accounts. Intermediaries that receive Service Fees may include a company affiliated with management of Federated. If a financial intermediary receives Service Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees on that same account.
ACCOUNT ADMINISTRATION FEES
The Fund may pay Account Administration Fees of up to 0.25% of average net assets to banks that are not registered as broker-dealers or investment advisers for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Account Administration Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Service Fees or Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
RECORDKEEPING FEES
The Fund may pay Recordkeeping Fees on an average-net-assets basis or on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing recordkeeping services to the Fund and its shareholders. If a financial intermediary receives Recordkeeping Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Account Administration Fees or Networking Fees on that same account.
NETWORKING FEES
The Fund may reimburse Networking Fees on a per-account-per-year basis to financial intermediaries for providing administrative services to the Fund and its shareholders on certain non-omnibus accounts. If a financial intermediary receives Networking Fees on an account, it is not eligible to also receive Recordkeeping Fees on that same account.
ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS TO FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES
The Distributor may pay, out of its own resources, amounts (including items of material value) to certain financial intermediaries that support the sale of Shares or provide services to Fund shareholders. The amounts of these payments could be significant, and may create an incentive for the financial intermediary or its employees or associated persons to recommend or sell Shares of the Fund to you. In some cases, such payments may be made by or funded from the resources of companies affiliated with the Distributor (including the Adviser). These payments are not reflected in the fees and expenses listed in the fee table section of the Fund's Prospectus and described above because they are not paid by the Fund.
These payments are negotiated and may be based on such factors as: the number or value of Shares that the financial intermediary sells or may sell; the value of client assets invested; or the type and nature of services or support furnished by the financial intermediary. These payments may be in addition to payments, as described above, made by the Fund to the financial intermediary. In connection with these payments, the financial intermediary may elevate the prominence or profile of the Fund and/or other Federated funds, within the financial intermediary's organization by, for example, placement on a list of preferred or recommended funds and/or granting the Distributor preferential or enhanced opportunities to promote the funds in various ways within the financial intermediary's organization. You can ask your financial intermediary for information about any payments it receives from the Distributor or the Fund and any services provided.
How to Purchase Shares
You may purchase Shares through a financial intermediary, directly from the Fund or through an exchange from another Federated fund. The Fund reserves the right to reject any request to purchase or exchange Shares. New investors must submit a completed New Account Form.
The minimum initial investment for Fund Shares is generally $25,000. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount.
An institutional investor's minimum investment is calculated by combining all accounts it maintains with the Fund. Financial intermediaries may impose higher or lower minimum investment requirements on their customers than those imposed by the Fund. Keep in mind that financial intermediaries may charge you fees for their services in connection with your Share transactions.
THROUGH A FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARY
Submit your purchase order to your financial intermediary. Financial intermediaries are responsible for promptly submitting purchase orders and payment to the Fund by electronic means permitted by the Fund, or according to the instructions in the sections “By Telephone” or “By Mail” below.

Your purchase will be priced at the NAV next calculated after the Fund receives your order. Receipt of a purchase order by a financial intermediary will be deemed received by the Fund to the extent that such financial intermediary has been duly authorized by the Fund to accept such orders. If you call the Fund by 1:00 p.m. (Eastern time) and send your payment by wire by the close of the Federal Reserve wire transfer system, you will be entitled to that day's dividend.
Send your wire to:

You cannot purchase Shares by wire on days when wire transfers are restricted, even if the NYSE is open on such days (for example, Columbus Day and Veterans Day). The Fund does not consider wire purchase requests received on such days to be in proper form, and will not process such requests.

Although the Fund intends to pay Share redemptions in cash, it reserves the right to pay the redemption price in whole or in part by a distribution of the Fund's portfolio securities.
LIMITATIONS ON REDEMPTION PROCEEDS
Redemption proceeds normally are wired or mailed within one business day after receiving a request in proper form. Payment may be delayed for up to seven days:
to allow your purchase to clear (as discussed below);
during periods of market volatility;
when a shareholder's trade activity or amount adversely impacts the Fund's ability to manage its assets; or
during any period when the Federal Reserve wire or applicable Federal Reserve banks are closed, other than customary weekend and holiday closings.
If you request a redemption of Shares recently purchased by check (including a cashier's check or certified check), money order, bank draft or ACH, your redemption proceeds may not be made available for up to seven calendar days to allow the Fund to collect payment on the instrument used to purchase such Shares. If the purchase instrument does not clear, your purchase order will be canceled and you will be responsible for any losses incurred by the Fund as a result of your canceled order.
Any attempt to redeem Shares through checkwriting or debit card before the purchase instrument has cleared will be automatically rejected.
In addition, the right of redemption may be suspended, or the payment of proceeds may be delayed, during any period:
when the NYSE is closed, other than customary weekend and holiday closings;
when trading on the NYSE is restricted, as determined by the SEC;
in which an emergency exists, as determined by the SEC, so that disposal of the Fund's investments or determination of its NAV is not reasonably practicable; or
in which there are emergency conditions, including liquidation of the Fund, as provided in Section 22(e), and rules thereunder, of the Investment Company Act of 1940.

You will not accrue interest or dividends on uncashed redemption checks from the Fund if those checks are undeliverable and returned to the Fund.
EXCHANGE PRIVILEGE
You may exchange Shares of the Fund for shares of any Federated fund or share class that does not have a stated sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge, except Federated Liberty U.S. Government Money Market Trust and R class. To do this, you must:
ensure that the account registrations are identical;
meet any applicable minimum initial investment requirements; and
receive a prospectus for the fund into which you wish to exchange.
An exchange is treated as a redemption and a subsequent purchase, and is a taxable transaction. The Fund may modify or terminate the exchange privilege at any time.
Systematic Withdrawal/Exchange Program
You may automatically redeem or exchange Shares. The minimum amount for all new or revised systematic redemptions or exchanges of Shares is $50 per transaction per fund. Complete the appropriate section of the New Account Form or an Account Service Options Form or contact your financial intermediary or the Fund. Your account value must meet the minimum initial investment amount at the time the program is established. This program may reduce, and eventually deplete, your account. Payments should not be considered yield or income.
CHECKWRITING
You may request checks to redeem your Fund Shares. Your account will continue to receive the daily dividend declared on the Shares being redeemed until the check is presented for payment.
DEBIT CARD
You may request a debit card account that allows you to redeem Shares. There is an annual fee for this service that the Fund will automatically deduct from your account.
ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS
Telephone Transactions
The Fund will record your telephone instructions. If the Fund does not follow reasonable procedures, it may be liable for losses due to unauthorized or fraudulent telephone instructions.
Share Certificates
The Fund does not issue share certificates.
Account and Share Information
ACCOUNT ACTIVITY
You will receive periodic statements reporting all account activity, including systematic transactions, dividends and capital gains paid.
DIVIDENDS AND CAPITAL GAINS
The Fund declares any dividends daily and pays them monthly to shareholders.
The Fund does not expect to realize any capital gains or losses. However, the Fund may realize capital gains on certain securities, such as synthetic variable rate demand instruments, that may be redeemed in certain circumstances at a premium to their face value. If capital gains or losses were to occur, they could result in an increase or decrease in dividends. The Fund pays any capital gains at least annually, and may make such special distributions of dividends and capital gains as may be necessary to meet applicable regulatory requirements. Your dividends and capital gains distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional Shares without a sales charge, unless you elect cash payments. Dividends may also be reinvested without sales charges in shares of any class of any other Federated fund of which you are already a shareholder.
If you have elected to receive dividends and/or capital gain distributions in cash, and your check is returned by the postal or other delivery service as “undeliverable,” or you do not respond to mailings from Federated with regard to uncashed distribution checks, your distribution option will automatically be converted to having all dividends and capital gains reinvested in additional Shares. No interest will accrue on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks. See “Tax Information” below for information on the tax consequences of the Fund realizing a capital gain.
