    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, service fees, 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 0.15% for Shares and 0.15% for Premier Shares. For Premier Shares, the "Total Annual Portfolio Operating Expenses After Expense Reimbursement" may be higher than the contractual limitation as a result of certain Portfolio expenses, including but not limited to service fees, that are not reimbursed. This contractual limitation may not be terminated before April 1, 2019 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 1.55% for Shares and 1.50% for Premier Shares as of April 30, 2018. 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.

    NAV Information: Market Value NAV is calculated using current market quotations, or an appropriate substitute, to value a portfolio. This NAV is not currently being used for transacting purchase and sale activity. All purchase and sale activity is being transacted at the Amortized Cost NAV of $1.00.

    Ratings are subject to change. The Standard & Poor's Principal Stability Fund (PSF) Rating, also known as the money market fund rating, is a forward-looking opinion about a fixed income fund's capacity to maintain stable principal (net asset value). When assigning a PSF rating to a fund, Standard & Poor's analysis focuses primarily on the creditworthiness of the fund's investments and counterparties, and also its investments' maturity structure and management's ability and policies to maintain the fund's stable net asset value. PSF ratings are assigned to funds that seek to maintain a stable or an accumulating net asset value. A fund rated AAAm demonstrates extremely strong capacity to maintain principal stability and to limit exposure to principal losses due to credit risk. This fund is on the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) list. Inclusion on the NAIC list is the result of an accounting measure involving the fund’s underlying investments, and does not constitute an assessment of quality. The NAIC listing does not represent an endorsement or recommendation of the overall fund.

    iMoneyNet Fund AverageTM - Treasury & Repo Institutional category includes only institutional government funds that hold U.S. Treasuries and repurchase agreements backed by the U.S. Treasury. The category average is the average of all funds in this category reported by iMoneyNet. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
    Quality Distribution: A security is classified as Tier 1 when two or more of the three nationally recognized statistical rating agencies have assigned a rating in their top short-term ratings category (A1+ and A1 for Standard & Poor's, P1 for Moody's and F1+ and F1 for Fitch). A security is classified as Tier 2 when two or more of the ratings assigned to that security are below the top short-term ratings from the agencies (this would include ratings of A2 for Standard & Poor's, P2 for Moody's and F2 for Fitch). If a security has only two short-term ratings available, the lower rating is used to define the Tier; i.e. a split rating of A1/P2 is considered Tier 2. If only one short-term rating is available for a security, the Tier is determined by that one agency. A security is classified as Tier 3 if it does not meet the definition of Tier 1 or Tier 2, has two or more ratings below A2, P2, or F2 or if the security does not have a short-term rating.
    Distribution Calculations: (Security Distribution, Quality Distribution, Maturity Distribution and Sector Distribution) are measured on a trade date basis and exclude uninvested cash from the market value used to compute the percentage calculations.
    Maturity Distribution: The data is measured using the lower of the stated maturity date or next interest rate reset date.
