SWBDX - Schwab Short-Term Bond Market Fund™

On April 19, 2017, the Board of Trustees reconsidered its previous decision regarding the reorganization of Schwab Short-Term Bond Market Fund™ into Schwab® Short-Term Bond Index Fund and approved the liquidation of Schwab Short-Term Bond Market Fund. Accordingly, the Fund will redeem all of its outstanding shares on or about August 18, 2017 and distribute the proceeds to shareholders. The Fund closed to new investors effective February 22, 2017. Existing shareholders may redeem their shares or exchange their shares for shares of another Schwab Fund (including Schwab Short-Term Bond Index Fund (SWSBX)) for which they are eligible to purchase at any time prior to the date of the liquidation. The Fund’s investment adviser will bear all expenses associated with the liquidation other than transaction costs associated with winding down the Fund’s portfolio and will waive fees and reimburse the Fund for all operating expenses incurred from April 19, 2017 through the date of the liquidation. Please review the prospectus for additional information.

Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. You can view, download, and print a prospectus by clicking on Investor Information. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not indicate future results. Visit Schwab.com for month-end performance information. Current performance may be lower or higher. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate; therefore, redemption of shares may result in loss of principal.

Fixed income securities are subject to increased loss of principal during periods of rising interest rates. Fixed income investments are subject to various other risks, including changes in credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications, and other factors. All of these factors can subject the funds to increased loss of principal.
