Fixed Income Funds
You may view performance for all funds in the Northern Funds Family sorted by category.

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.

The recent growth rate in the stock market has helped to produce short-term returns for some asset classes that are not typical and may not continue in the future. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes.
