Proven Investment Management

Few decisions involve more trust than investing in a mutual fund. When you put your hard-earned money into a fund, you're also putting your hopes and dreams in the hands of the people managing the fund.

Since 1889, Northern Trust has built a time-honored tradition of strength and stability in investment management. Eight years before the creation of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, 35 years before the introduction of the first mutual fund, and 82 years before the start of the NASDAQ, Northern Trust was managing the assets of affluent individuals and large corporations.

Today, that same caliber of investment expertise is available to you — through Northern Funds. We understand that investing is about more than stocks and bonds. It's about a secure retirement for you, a college education for your children, a lasting legacy for your loved ones. We're proud to draw on a heritage dating back to the 19th century to help you pursue your goals in the 21st century.

A Time-Tested Philosophy
Financial markets change daily, but sound investment principles remain timeless. At Northern Funds, our mission is simple: work as diligently to invest your money as you did to earn it. From extensive research to active risk management and well-defined buy-sell criteria, we invest with a discipline practiced over more than a century of market highs and lows.

Northern Funds Investment Principles
Whether it's an aggressive stock fund or a more conservative bond portfolio, every Northern Fund is guided by the same investment principles:

  • Draw on the wisdom and expertise of proven investment professionals averaging 15 years of experience.
  • Take a team approach with portfolio managers, research analysts, traders and economists working collectively toward common goals.
  • Follow a disciplined investment process that pairs exhaustive research with experienced judgment.
  • Choose long-term performance over short-term profit.
  • Pursue consistent investment returns, year in and year out.
