What are the trading restrictions related to GuideStone's Capital Preservation Fund and the BNY Mellon Stable Value Fund?

Participants are prohibited from exchanging out of the Capital Preservation Fund or the BNY Mellon Stable Value Fund to a “competing fund” without first investing in a “non-competing fund” for a period of at least 90 days. A “competing fund” is any fund predominantly invested in fixed-income securities whose average duration is generally less than 3½ years.
