Equity Funds

Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return will fluctuate. Shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown here. The current yield more closely reflects the current earnings of the Fund than the total return. Performance would have been lower in the absence of fee waivers in effect. Select a Fund to view the most recent month-end performance information.
*Northern Equity Funds include contractual expense reimbursements that if not extended, will end on July 31, 2021.

**Effective July 31, 2020, Class K and Class I replaced the Fund’s predecessor Shares Class (“Shares Class”). For periods starting July 31, 2020, the Fund’s performance returns are shown for Class K and Class I. The Fund’s performance returns prior to July 31, 2020 are shown for the Shares Class, which had an inception date of March 5, 2008. The performance of the Fund’s Shares Class has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses applicable to Class K or Class I shares since the classes have different expense ratios than the expense ratio of the Shares Class. The expenses applicable to the Fund’s Class K and Class I shares are lower than the expenses applicable to the Shares Class. Excluding the effect of any fees, expenses, fee waivers or reimbursements, the performance of the Fund’s Class K shares and Class I shares would have annual returns substantially similar to those of Shares Class because the classes invest in the same portfolio of securities. Please refer to the current prospectus for further information.
