|For those investors who are looking for liquidity and convenience with the advantage of money market rates, consider this fund. Money market funds invest in short-term instruments with maturities of 13 months or less, in an effort to maintain a stable net asset value of $1.00 per share. The Fund's policy is to target zero holdings of alternative minimum tax (AMT) securities. However, income from the Fund may be subject to federal AMT, state and local taxes. Securities issued by California state and local entities can provide investors with the benefit of high current income consistent with the preservation of capital that is largely exempt from federal and California state income tax.|
|The Fund seeks to provide, to the extent consistent with the preservation of capital and prescribed portfolio standards, a high level of income exempt from regular federal income tax and California state personal income tax.|

*Please Note: Maturity dates on many holdings represent the final maturity of the security and do not account for the tender/put option at par value available to the holder. These securities have rates that reset to current market level either daily or weekly. As a result of holding securities that have a tender/put option at par value, the weighted average maturity of the fund will be less than 90 days.

|Northern Trust Investments, Inc. has contractually agreed to reimburse a portion of the operating expenses of the Fund (other than certain excepted expenses, i.e., acquired fund fees and expenses; the compensation paid to each Independent Trustee of the Trust; expenses of third party consultants engaged by the Board of Trustees; membership dues paid to the Investment Company Institute and Mutual Fund Directors Forum; expenses in connection with the negotiation and renewal of the revolving credit facility; and extraordinary expense and interest) to the extent the "Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses" exceed 0.35%. This contractual limitation may not be terminated before July 31, 2016 without the approval of the Board of Trustees. In the absence of voluntary expense reimbursements, yield, total return, growth since inception and dividends would have been reduced. Total return is based on net change in NAV assuming reinvestment of distributions. The 7-day current yield more closely reflects the current earnings of the Fund than the total returns. The Fund also includes voluntary expense reimbursements that may change or end at any time. Without the voluntary expense reimbursements, the 7-Day current yield would have been -0.06% as of March 31, 2016. In the event the 7-day current yield with waivers and the 7-day current yield without waivers are equal, it would indicate there were no voluntary waivers necessary for the preceding 7-day period.|

This NAV is calculated to four decimal places and is not currently being used for transacting purchase and sale activity.
