An investment in Northern Funds involves risks, including possible loss of principal. Asset Allocation Risk: An asset allocation strategy does not guarantee any specific result or profit nor protect against a loss. Bond Risk: Bond funds will tend to experience smaller fluctuations in value than stock funds. However, investors in any bond fund should anticipate fluctuations in price, especially for longer-term issues and in environments of rising interest rates. Equity Risk: Equity securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed-income securities. The net asset value per share of this Fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio changes. Small-Cap Risk: Small-capitalization funds typically carry additional risks since smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Their stocks are subject to a greater degree of volatility, trade in lower volume and may be less liquid. International Risk: International investing involves increased risk and volatility. Interest Rate Risk: Increases in prevailing interest rates will cause fixed income securities, including convertible securities, held by the Fund to decline in value. Environmental, social and governance(ESG) Risk: The Fund’s ESG screening process may affect exposures to certain companies or industries and cause the Fund to forego certain investment opportunities.
