Choosing a Fund
Use our Risk/Reward spectrum to navigate your way to the mutual fund that is right for you.

If you fit the profile of a more aggressive investor able to accept greater volatility in exchange for higher potential return than is offered by the Large Cap Growth Fund, you will want to consider this Fund as a core holding for your portfolio. In an attempt to achieve its investment objective, the Fund may occasionally emphasize particular companies or market segments, such as technology. Many of the companies in which the Fund invests retain earnings to finance current and future growth. Investors should expect low to no dividends.

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.

The Advisor has agreed to reimburse certain expenses of the Fund (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses; a portion of the compensation paid to each Trustee who is not an officer, director or employee of Northern Trust Corporation or its subsidiaries; expenses related to third-party consultants engaged by the Board of Trustees of the Trust; membership dues paid to the Investment Company Institute and Mutual Fund Directors Forum; extraordinary expenses; and interest, if any) to the extent the "Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses" exceed 0.85%. The contractual limitation may not be terminated before July 31, 2015 without the approval of the Board of Trustees. In the absence of fee waivers, 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.
