|The Tax-Exempt Portfolio seeks to provide shareholders, to the extent consistent with the preservation of capital and prescribed Portfolio standards, a high level of income exempt from federal income tax. The Portfolio invests primarily in high-quality short-term instruments, the interest on which is exempt from regular federal income tax. The Portfolio's policy is to target zero holdings of alternative minimum tax (AMT) securities. However, income from the Portfolio may be subject to the federal AMT, state, and local taxes. Dividends, if any, are declared daily and paid monthly.
The Portfolio 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 by investing primarily in municipal instruments.
The Tax-Expempt Portfolio will be liquidated and terminated on or about October 14, 2016.

|Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown here.|
|Northern Trust Investments, Inc. has contractually agreed to reimburse a portion of the operating expenses of the Portfolio (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, extraordinary expenses and interest) to the extent the “Total Annual Portfolio Operating Expenses” exceed 0.35%. This contractual limitation may not be terminated before April 1, 2017 without the approval of the Board of Trustees. In the absence of these 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 Portfolio than the total returns. The Portfolio also includes voluntary expense reimbursements to prevent a negative yield that may change or end at any time. Without the voluntary expense reimbursements, the 7-day current yield would have been 0.05% for Shares and 0.05% for Service Shares as of July 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.|
