Using a disciplined approach that seeks to maximize tax-free income, the Rochester-based municipal bond fund team focuses on providing highly competitive yields from diverse portfolio of carefully assessed muni bonds. It’s what we call the Rochester Way.
With about 95% of assets in investment-grade securities, Oppenheimer Limited Term California Municipal Fund can be a highly effective, long-term solution for Californians seeking competitive tax-free yields. The Fund seeks a dollar-weighted average effective maturity of five years or less and is typically less volatile than longer term bond funds. 
Shorter-Term, High-Quality Bonds for More Cautious Investors Shorter-term bonds are less affected by changes in interest rates than longer-term bonds, providing greater price stability in a changing marketplace. Conversely, longer-term and lower-quality bonds can be more volatile. This fund’s limitations on average effective maturity and below-investment-grade securities were put in place in an effort to reduce share-price volatility.
A Focus on Income This Fund seeks long-term total return that consists primarily of tax-free income – real new investment-generated dollars that shareholders may keep, spend or reinvest as they see fit. The Fund adheres to a yield-driven, security-specific and value-oriented approach to fund management. This focus reflects the fact that the majority of a bond’s return typically comes from income rather than price appreciation.
Research and Experience The municipal market can be inefficient. Thus, if you are willing to spend the time – as we are- you can often uncover exceptional opportunities. No matter how large or small the bond issue, we apply our significant experience to the task of researching issuers, creditworthiness and security structures.
Turning Over Every Stone We have found some of the best opportunities to pick up added performance in smaller, unrated and lower-rated issues.

A portion of the Fund's distributions may be subject to tax and may increase taxes for investors subject to Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).  Capital gains distributions are taxable as capital gains. Tax treatments of the Fund's distributions and capital gains may vary by state; investors should consult a tax advisor to determine if the Fund is appropriate for them.
Available to investors only in certain states.
Special Risks: Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. May invest up to 5% in below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds, which are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk.* Large sector holdings (such as tobacco) may expose investors to greater volatility and special risks associated with that sector. May invest substantially in municipal securities within a single state or related to similar type projects, which can increase volatility and exposure to regional issues. May invest substantially in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories, commonwealths and possessions, and could be exposed to their local political and economic conditions. Inverse floaters can be more volatile than conventional fixed-rate bonds and entail the use of leverage. The Fund may invest in the segment of the municipal bond market that is unrated by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization ("NRSRO").  The pool of unrated securities includes securities that may be of high or low credit quality. Unrated securities with higher yields relative to market averages may be purchased by the Fund to enhance yield.  Unrated securities may also be offered by highly creditworthy issuers who forgo the time and expense of obtaining a published rating.  Under certain market conditions, some unrated securities may trade less actively than rated securities. * Restriction applied at time of purchase and includes unrated securities that are rated internally by the Manager. Market fluctuations or credit rating changes may cause the Fund's holdings of below-investment-grade securities to exceed this restriction, at times significantly, for an extended period of time.
