|This Fund is an ideal choice for those investors who are looking for liquidity and convenience with the advantage of money market rates. 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. Municipal securities, including fixed and variable rate notes, tax-exempt commercial paper, municipal bonds and municipal notes can provide the potential for high current income consistent with the preservation of capital that is largely exempt from federal 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 by investing primarily in municipal instruments.|

|The Advisor has agreed to reimburse certain expenses of the Fund (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses; a portion of the compensation paid to each Trustee who is not an officer, director or employee of Northern Trust Corporation or its subsidiaries; expenses related to third-party consultants engaged by the Board of Trustees of the Trust; membership dues paid to the Investment Company Institute and Mutual Fund Directors Forum; extraordinary expenses; and interest, if any) to the extent the "Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses" exceed 0.35%. The contractual limitation may not be terminated before July 31, 2015 without the approval of the Board of Trustees.

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
-0.29% as of September 30, 2014.
