The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Northern Trust Quality Dividend Defensive IndexSM.
The fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the underlying index and in American ADRs and GDRs based on the securities in the index. The index is designed to provide exposure to a high-quality, income-oriented portfolio of international equity securities issued by non-U.S.-based companies, with an emphasis on long-term capital growth and a targeted overall volatility that is lower than that of the Northern Trust International Large Cap IndexSM.
