|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.
This fund intends to qualify and operate as a "retail money market fund" and will be subject to liquidity fees, redemption gates and will maintain a stable net asset value of $1.00.

|Northern Trust Investments, Inc. has contractually agreed to reimburse a portion of the operating expenses of the Fund (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; and extraordinary expense and interest) to the extent the "Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses" exceed 0.35%. This contractual limitation may not be terminated before July 31, 2017 without the approval of the Board of Trustees. In the absence of voluntary expense 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 Fund than the total returns. 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 0.51% as of March 31, 2017. 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.|
