Our Risk/Reward Spectrum Can Help You Build a Well Balanced Portfolio

A key to building a sound investment strategy is not always following the latest trend or trying to pick the best time to get into the market. Rather, it's asset allocation, the strategy of spreading your investment dollars — based on your personal needs — among stocks, bonds or money market instruments.

As the chart below illustrates, risk and potential reward usually go hand-in-hand. When creating your Northern Funds portfolio, you'll want to select the right investment mix to match your comfort level with risk. Use our Risk/Reward spectrum below to navigate your way to the 100% no-load mutual fund1 that's right for you.
