-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 [THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK] 2 Northern Institutional Funds Money Market Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INVESTMENT OUTLOOK WHAT HAS CHANGED The worsening economic crisis in Asia dimmed prospects for global growth. Troubles in the Far East deepened as Japan's economy entered recession, pushing the U.S. dollar to an eight-year high against the yen. On the home front, flight-to-quality trading pushed the yield on the 30-year Treasury to a 21-year low, Congress moved to lower the long-term capital gains holding period to 12 months, and stocks rebounded to near all-time highs as worries diminished concerning second quarter earnings. ECONOMIC OUTLOOK MODERATE ECONOMIC GROWTH IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE Economic growth is slowing to a more moderate pace from its almost boom-like first quarter performance. For now, this slowdown is concentrated in the manufacturing sector. Exports to Asia have fallen because of the recession there. Domestic business equipment spending is slowing in the face of falling factory capacity utilization and weaker demand. Inventory growth also is expected to slow because of the rapid accumulation in the first quarter and General Motors ("GM") strike-related shutdown. More than offsetting these brakes on economic activity is a vibrant household sector. With unemployment very low and real incomes rising, consumer spending has remained strong. These same factors that are contributing to consumer spending, in combination with low nominal interest rates, are keeping the demand for residential real estate high. Nonresidential real estate activity is also strong because of rising rents, increased acquisition costs, and readily available financing. In the coming months, the weakness in the manufacturing sector is likely to filter through to other parts of the economy, slowing, but not stalling them. The Asian economic crisis worsened markedly in recent weeks, so much so that references to deflationary spirals and Asian depressions have begun to appear in market analyses and news reports. Japan's economy has entered a recession, with Hong Kong likely to follow. The second largest economy in Asia, that of mainland China, has slowed significantly. Although the previously-announced Japanese fiscal stimulus program, which is only now being implemented, will stimulate some domestic demand, it remains to be seen if it will be enough to stabilize the Japanese economy, let alone generate job-creating growth. There are suggestions that the ruling Japanese political party will recommend permanent tax cuts in the run-up to the July 12, 1998 parliamentary elections. Although the Japanese government appears to have a greater urgency to resolve the bad-loan problems of the banks, a resolution, in and of itself, will have only a marginally salutary impact on domestic demand. In order to ease the credit crunch in Japan quickly, the government would have to use public funds to recapitalize the banking system. After more than eight years of Japan's "muddling through" its various crises, financial markets are skeptical that these new policy changes will be implemented in a timely and successful manner. Meanwhile, the Chinese government is expected to use fiscal and monetary policies to boost domestic demand rather than devaluing its currency in an effort to increase exports. U.S. consumer inflation has started to edge higher in the face of very strong demand, human capital constraints, and slowing productivity, but declining import prices continue to act as a governor on inflation. Falling commodity prices, especially energy prices, also have been a limiting factor with regard to inflation. The expected moderation in U.S. economic activity will likely relieve some of the cyclical inflationary pressures. The Federal Reserve shares this outlook and is likely to keep policy on hold for the foreseeable future. Making their job even more difficult over the next few months will be the distortion imparted to reported economic data by the temporary negative effects from the GM strike. The monetary policymakers are also aware that the global financial markets are currently very fragile. A tightening in U.S. monetary policy in this environment would run the risk of triggering an avalanche in global equity share prices, which, in turn, could slow the U.S. economy more than desired. With inflation still low, and, perhaps as important, inflation expectations low, the Federal Reserve believes that it can be less preemptive now than otherwise would be the case_____July.9, 1998 Shares of Northern Institutional Funds are not bank deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed, endorsed or otherwise supported by The Northern Trust Company, its parent company, or its affiliates, and are not Federally insured or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Reserve Board, or any other governmental agency.

See accompanying notes to financial statements. 22 Northern Institutional Funds Money Market Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS May 31, 1998 (Unaudited) 1. ORGANIZATION Northern Institutional Funds (the "Trust") is a Delaware business trust which was formed on July 1, 1997, and is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (as amended) as an open-end management investment company. The Trust, formerly known as The Benchmark Funds, changed it's name effective July 15, 1998. The Trust includes seventeen portfolios, each with its own investment objective. Prior to March 31, 1998, each portfolio was a series of The Benchmark Funds, a Massachusetts business trust, which reorganized into the Trust at the close of business on that date. The Northern Trust Company ("Northern") is the investment adviser for all actively managed Portfolios and is the custodian and transfer agent for all Northern Institutional Funds. Goldman, Sachs & Co. ("Goldman Sachs") acts as the Trust's administrator and distributor. Presented herein are the financial statements of the money market portfolios. The Trust includes four diversified money market portfolios: Diversified Assets Portfolio, Government Portfolio, Government Select Portfolio and Tax- Exempt Portfolio (the "Portfolios"). Each of these Portfolios has three classes of shares: Shares, Services Shares and Premier Shares. Each class is distinguished by the level of administrative, liaison and transfer agent service provided. As of May 31, 1998, no Service or Premier Shares have been sold. 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The following is a summary of significant accounting policies consistently followed by the Portfolios in preparation of their financial statements. These policies are in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The presentation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (a) Investment Valuation Investments are valued at amortized cost, which approximates market value. Under the amortized cost method, investments purchased at a discount or premium are valued by amortizing the difference between the original purchase price and maturity value of the issue over the period to maturity. (b) Repurchase Agreements During the term of a repurchase agreement, the market value of the underlying collateral, including accrued interest, is required to exceed the market value of the repurchase agreement. The underlying collateral for all repurchase agreements is held in a customer-only account of Northern, as custodian for the Trust, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Each Portfolio may enter into joint repurchase agreements with non-affiliated counterparties through a master repurchase agreement with Northern. Northern administers and manages these repurchase agreements in accordance with and as part of its duties under its investment advisory agreements with the Portfolios and does not collect any additional fees from the Portfolios. The Diversified Assets and Government Portfolios had entered into such joint repurchase agreements as of May 31, 1998, as reflected in the accompanying Statements of Investments. (c) Interest Income Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis and includes amortization of discounts and premiums. (d) Federal Taxes It is each Portfolio's policy to comply with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code applicable to regulated investment companies and to distribute each year substantially all of its taxable income and tax-exempt income to its shareholders. Therefore, no provision is made for federal taxes. At November 30, 1997, the Trust's most recent tax year end, there were capital loss carryforwards for U.S. federal tax purposes of approximately $1,367,000 and $93,000 for the Diversified Assets and Government Portfolios, respectively. These amounts are available to be carried forward to offset future capital gains to the extent permitted by applicable laws or regulations. These capital loss carryforwards expire in 2002. (e) Expenses Expenses arising in connection with a specific Portfolio are allocated to that Portfolio. Certain expenses arising in connection with a class of shares are allocated to that class of shares. Expenses incurred which do not specifically relate to an individual Portfolio are allocated among the Portfolios based on each Portfolio's relative average net assets for the year. 23 Northern Institutional Funds Money Market Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--CONTINUED May 31, 1998 (Unaudited) (f) Distributions Each Portfolio's net investment income is declared daily as a dividend to shareholders of record as of 3:00 p.m., Chicago time. Net realized short-term capital gains, if any in excess of net capital loss carryforwards, are declared and distributed at least annually. Distributions of net investment income with respect to a calendar month (including with respect to shares redeemed at any time during the month) are made as soon as practicable following the end of the month. Distributions are made by each Portfolio to Northern in cash or automatically reinvested in additional shares of the Portfolio. Northern has undertaken to credit or arrange for the crediting of such distributions to each shareholder's account with Northern, its affiliates or its correspondents. 3. ADVISORY, TRANSFER AGENCY, CUSTODIAN AND OTHER AGREEMENTS As compensation for the services rendered as investment adviser, including the assumption by Northern of the expenses related thereto, Northern is entitled to a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, at an annual rate of .25% of each Portfolio's average daily net assets. Until further notice, Northern has voluntarily agreed to waive .15% of its advisory fee for the Government Select Portfolio, reducing such fee to .10% per annum. The effect of this waiver by Northern for the six months ended May 31, 1998 was to reduce advisory fees as shown on the accompanying Statements of Operations. As compensation for the services rendered as custodian and transfer agent, including the assumption by Northern of the expenses related thereto, Northern receives compensation based on a pre-determined schedule of charges approved by the Board. 4. ADMINISTRATION AND DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENTS The Trust has an administration agreement with Goldman Sachs whereby each Portfolio pays the Administrator a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, at an annual rate of .10% of each Portfolio's daily net assets. In addition, if in any fiscal year the sum of a Portfolio's expenses, including the administration fee, but excluding the investment advisory fee to Northern pursuant to its agreements with the Trust, servicing fees, and extraordinary expenses (such as taxes, interest and indemnification expenses), exceeds on an annualized basis .10% of a Portfolio's average net assets, Goldman Sachs will reimburse each Portfolio for the amount of the excess pursuant to the terms of the administration agreement. No administrator fees were waived under this agreement during the six months ended May 31, 1998. Furthermore, Goldman Sachs voluntarily agreed to reimburse each Portfolio for certain expenses in the event that such expenses, as defined, exceed on an annualized basis .10% of its average daily net assets. Expenses reimbursed during the six months ended May 31, 1998 are shown on the accompanying Statements of Operations. Goldman Sachs receives no compensation under the distribution agreement. 5. SERVICE PLAN The Trust has adopted a Service Plan pursuant to which the Trust may enter into agreements with institutions or other financial intermediaries under which they will render certain administrative support services and in some cases personal and account maintenance services for their customers or investors who beneficially own Service and Premier Shares. As compensation under the Service Plan, the institution or other financial intermediary receives a fee at an annual rate of up to .25% and .50% of the average daily net asset value of the outstanding Service and Premier Shares, respectively. Furthermore, the Service Plan also provides for consulting services, technology and systems support services to the Service and Premier Shares customers for a fee at an annual rate of up to .08% of the average daily net asset value of such shares serviced. 6. BANK LOANS Prior to January 16, 1998, the Trust maintained a $5,000,000 revolving bank credit line and a $15,000,000 conditional revolving credit line for liquidity and other purposes. As of January 16, 1998, the Trust maintains a $100,000,000 revolving bank credit line and a $15,000,000 conditional revolving credit line for liquidity and other purposes. Borrowings under this arrangement bear interest at 1% above the federal funds rate and are secured by pledged securities equal to or exceeding 120% of the outstanding balance. There were no borrowings under this agreement during the six months ended May 31, 1998. 24 Investment Adviser, Transfer Agent and Custodian: The Northern Trust Company 50 South LaSalle Street Chicago, Illinois 60675 Administrator and Distributor: Goldman, Sachs & Co. 4900 Sears Tower Chicago, IL 60606 This Semi-Annual Report is authorized for distribution to prospective investors only when preceded or accompanied by a Prospectus which contains facts concerning the objectives and policies, management expenses and other information.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Northern Institutional Funds Fixed Income and Equity Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INVESTMENT OUTLOOK WHAT HAS CHANGED The worsening economic crisis in Asia dimmed prospects for global growth. Troubles in the Far East deepened as Japan's economy entered recession, pushing the U.S. dollar to an eight-year high against the yen. On the home front, flight-to-quality trading pushed the yield on the 30-year Treasury to a 21-year low, Congress moved to lower the long-term capital gains holding period to 12 months, and stocks rebounded to near all-time highs as worries diminished concerning second quarter earnings. ECONOMIC OUTLOOK MODERATE ECONOMIC GROWTH IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE Economic growth is slowing to a more moderate pace from its almost boom-like first quarter performance. For now, this slowdown is concentrated in the manufacturing sector. Exports to Asia have fallen because of the recession there. Domestic business equipment spending is slowing in the face of falling factory capacity utilization and weaker demand. Inventory growth also is expected to slow because of the rapid accumulation in the first quarter and General Motors ("GM") strike-related shutdown. More than offsetting these brakes on economic activity is a vibrant household sector. With unemployment very low and real incomes rising, consumer spending has remained strong. These same factors that are contributing to consumer spending, in combination with low nominal interest rates, are keeping the demand for residential real estate high. Nonresidential real estate activity is also strong because of rising rents, increased acquisition costs, and readily available financing. In the coming months, the weakness in the manufacturing sector is likely to filter through to other parts of the economy, slowing, but not stalling them. The Asian economic crisis worsened markedly in recent weeks, so much so that references to deflationary spirals and Asian depressions have begun to appear in market analyses and news reports. Japan's economy has entered a recession, with Hong Kong likely to follow. The second largest economy in Asia, that of mainland China, has slowed significantly. Although the previously-announced Japanese fiscal stimulus program, which is only now being implemented, will stimulate some domestic demand, it remains to be seen if it will be enough to stabilize the Japanese economy, let alone generate job-creating growth. There are suggestions that the ruling Japanese political party will recommend permanent tax cuts in the run-up to the July 12, 1998 parliamentary elections. Although the Japanese government appears to have a greater urgency to resolve the bad-loan problems of the banks, a resolution, in and of itself, will have only a marginally salutary impact on domestic demand. In order to ease the credit crunch in Japan quickly, the government would have to use public funds to re-capitalize the banking system. After more than eight years of Japan's "muddling through" its various crises, financial markets are skeptical that these new policy changes will be implemented in a timely and successful manner. Meanwhile, the Chinese government is expected to use fiscal and monetary policies to boost domestic demand rather than devaluing its currency in an effort to increase exports. U.S. consumer inflation has started to edge higher in the face of very strong demand, human capital constraints, and slowing productivity, but declining import prices continue to act as a governor on inflation. Falling commodity prices, especially energy prices, also have been a limiting factor with regard to inflation. The expected moderation in U.S. economic activity will likely relieve some of the cyclical inflationary pressures. The Federal Reserve shares this outlook and is likely to keep policy on hold for the foreseeable future. Making their job even more difficult over the next few months will be the distortion imparted to reported economic data by the temporary negative effects from the GM strike. The monetary policymakers are also aware that the global financial markets are currently very fragile. A tightening in U.S. monetary policy in this environment would run the risk of triggering an avalanche in global equity share prices, which, in turn, could slow the U.S. economy more than desired. With inflation still low, and, perhaps as important, inflation expectations low, the Federal Reserve believes that it can be less preemptive now than otherwise would be the case. FIXED INCOME OUTLOOK BONDS REMAIN AN ATTRACTIVE INVESTMENT Bond investors experienced a volatile but rewarding quarter as renewed turmoil in Asia more than offset concerns about Shares of Northern Institutional Funds are not bank deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed, endorsed or otherwise supported by The Northern Trust Company, its parent company, or its affiliates, and are not Federally insured or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Reserve Board, or any other governmental agency. Investment in the portfolios involves investment risks, including possible loss of principal amount invested. 2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- continued strong growth in the domestic economy. Economic and policy developments emanating from Asia caused bond sentiment to shift from expectations that the Federal Reserve was contemplating raising rates in order to cool the economy to a belief that a possible economic slowdown was in the offing. Bonds rallied sharply and the yield curve flattened amidst this shift, initially in a classic "flight to quality" and subsequently on growing expectations that Asia's woes would curb U.S. growth and keep inflation subdued. The change in sentiment and ensuing rally drew considerable support from Chairman Greenspan's early June testimony to Congress where his comments began with a declaration that "an assessment (of U.S. economic conditions) cannot be made in isolation but depends critically on what is happening in the rest of the world." We have long anchored our constructive outlook for bonds in a plethora of favorable secular trends which were viewed as being both significant and long lasting. Over the past several years, we have encountered periods of relative cyclical strength that tested our convictions. With each occurrence, upon evaluation, we concluded that the strength of our favorable secular arguments dominated whatever risks were posed by the cyclical threat. Presently, and uncharacteristically, we find the cyclical wind at our back. While we continue to view all of our oft-mentioned secular developments in a constructive light, we now believe that fallout from Asia's financial crisis is making the cyclical U.S. economic environment more supportive for bonds. We think the case that the economy will slow to a below-trend pace has strengthened in recent weeks. In his comments to Congress, Greenspan noted several factors likely to cause growth to slow in the quarters ahead. Most importantly, weakening demand in Asia and the stronger dollar will continue to cause U.S. exports to decline. With Japan now in a recession, the likelihood has increased that Asia's weakness will deteriorate further and spread to other regions causing net exports to post additional declines. Secondly, a draw down in inventories is likely to slow real Gross Domestic Product from its very strong first-quarter pace. Also mentioned by Greenspan was the fact that the recent trend of narrowing profit margins appeared to be causing a reassessment of the expected returns on plant and equipment which could lead to a decline in business investment. Looking back to the first quarter, there is little doubt that some of the earlier strength was borrowed from the future as residential construction, for example, benefited from mild winter weather. More recently, the GM strike will slow near-term growth. So far, the dampening effects of Asia on the U.S. economy have not had much impact on the consumer, which has been supported by the favorable labor situation and strong stock market. However, consumer spending would be vulnerable to a collapse in Japan, whether directly via falling exports or indirectly via a downward revaluation of equity prices. The combination of slower cyclical growth and subdued inflation should allow the Federal Reserve to keep monetary policy on hold for the rest of the year. Bonds should perform well in this environment, especially when viewed against a secular backdrop which remains highly favorable. As we noted last month, our constructive view of the bond market has not been built on expectations of continuous global economic and financial strife. However, repeating our comments from a month ago, the scope and severity of near-term uncertainties continues to enhance the constructive fundamental case we have long been making for bonds. EQUITY OUTLOOK EQUITIES ARE MODERATELY OVERVALUED An end-of-quarter rally after several pronounced earnings disappointments enabled the market to rise 4% for the most recent three months, albeit in a choppy and volatile fashion. Cash flows into mutual funds remained strong and global events buffeted investors' perceptions perhaps more strongly than actual results. The re-emergence of the Asian problem led to a sell-off, in mid-quarter, of nearly 5% in the S&P 500, but closer to 10% in the other broad averages, a normal and healthy occurrence. As the new quarter begins, attention is again focused on earnings that are thought to have risen 3% to 4% according to the IBES consensus. We continue to believe that the 7% to 8% growth estimates for 1998 will prove optimistic and believe the current earnings softness will extend into 1999. We gathered two interesting insights on the U.S. market on a recent trip to Europe. First, European investors have been very wrong regarding both the U.S. and Japan, underweighting the former and overweighting the latter. As events in 1998 have played out, these investors have been reducing their weight in Japan and raising it here in the U.S. While there is no real long-term bullishness on the U.S. as it is still seen as too richly valued, it looks better than Japan and the dollar looks safer than the yen. It is also possible that with a huge bull market in Europe to capture their attention, investors have moved to "neutralize" the other two major areas of the world. 3 Northern Institutional Funds Fixed Income and Equity Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INVESTMENT OUTLOOK--CONTINUED The other insight supports our long-held favorable view of U.S. bonds. A long-time global investor pointed out that U.S. stocks were not so expensive, rather, that the U.S. bond market was incredibly cheap. With rates across Europe at under 5%, why should the strongest economy and strongest currency have a bond market yielding 100 basis points higher? Over time, the argument went, rates would converge toward 4% in a low-inflation world with the best returns in dollar bonds and the worst in yen bonds. While we have not been quite that bullish on bonds, this analysis could provide a "super Goldilocks" environment where financial assets perform well for several more years. GLOBAL OUTLOOK FUNDAMENTALS SUPPORT EUROPE; ASIA IS MIXED Over the past few months we have articulated our positive view on Europe, especially relative to Asia and emerging markets. Europe (excluding the U.K.) is the best earnings growth story in the world. Economic growth has picked up as EMU constraints have lessened now that 11 members have qualified. Earnings growth is surging with the first set of earnings upgrades beginning in 1997 and continuing this year after six years of downgrades. We expect growth to average 15% in 1998 and 15% to 17% in 1999 in continental Europe. (U.K. growth will likely parallel that of the U.S.) This contrasts with growth of perhaps 4% to 6% in the U.S. and sharp falls in Asia. Not only are earnings set to rise from a normal cyclical upturn, but three additional factors will exert further upside pressure on earnings. First, tax reductions in several countries could boost results 2% to 3%. Second, share buybacks, still being legalized in countries such as France, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia, could add 3% to 5% to reported results. In the U.S., buybacks were approximately $175 billion in both 1996 and 1997 compared with just $12 billion in Europe. This year we see buybacks of nearly $25 billion on the Continent, and the level could reach $50 billion in another year or two. Third, mergers, disposals, and restructuring benefits are just beginning to aid results, adding perhaps another percent or two to growth. It is fairly easy to envision 20% earnings per share growth this year and next as these factors begin to have an impact. The other major factor to consider is the longer-term improvement in profitability that is under way. From a return on equity standpoint, we see Europe moving from 10% to 11% in 1997 to 16% to 18% by the year 2000, similar to the U.S. achievement in the early 1990s. The other great story in Europe that is comparable to recent U.S. experience is the strong liquidity flows into equities from fixed income and cash. Compared with the nearly $250 billion of mutual fund buying in the U.S., Europe has seen just $14 billion in 1996 and $66 billion in 1997 flow into mutual funds. However, as yields have fallen sharply and converged under 5% for 10-year bonds and toward 4% on short-term rates, a rather dramatic move to stocks have begun and should build significantly. The run rate so far in 1998 is $100 billion and if markets keep rising, quite a lot more is possible. In addition, institutional assets are heavily invested in bonds and European institutions under-own stocks. Conservative estimates expect nearly two trillion dollars of bond investments to be reallocated to stocks over the next two to three years. For example, other than the U.K.'s high 52% equity exposure, only French and Danish pension funds have more than 20% invested in stocks. Germany has just 6% in equities, while Spain and Italy have just 3%! In fact, the liquidity story in Europe (again excluding the U.K.) is possibly as big as that of the U.S. since 1990. From a valuation perspective, good news is in the price to a degree as markets generally sell for 20-23 earnings versus about 23 times for the U.S. but estimates are rising in Europe even as they are being reduced in the States. The markets in Europe have had a good 12-month run, but only recently have they reversed six years of underperformance. We conclude that it is early to mid life in the European bull market with more upgrades and higher liquidity likely to filter in over the next 18 months. While the traditional correction or lull is likely, especially with the World Cup taking place in France, we think the investment case remains strongly positive.

ORGANIZATION Northern Institutional Funds, (the "Trust") is a Delaware business trust which was formed on July 1, 1997, and is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (as amended) as an open-end management investment company. The Trust, formerly known as The Benchmark Funds, changed its name effective July 15, 1998. The Trust includes seventeen portfolios, each with its own investment objective. Prior to March 31, 1998, each portfolio was a series of The Benchmark Funds, a Massachusetts business trust, which reorganized into the Trust at the close of business on that date. Each Portfolio, other than the International Bond Portfolio, is classified as a diversified investment company. The Northern Trust Company ("Northern") is the investment adviser for all actively managed Portfolios and is the custodian and transfer agent for all Northern Institutional Funds. Effective April 1, 1998, Northern Trust Quantitative Advisors, Inc. ("NTQA"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern Trust Corporation, became the investment adviser for the Equity Index, International Equity Index and Small Company Index Portfolios. Goldman, Sachs & Co. ("Goldman Sachs") acts as the Trust's administrator and distributor. Presented herein are the financial statements of the fixed income and equity portfolios (the "Portfolios"). Each of the Portfolios has four separate classes: Class A, B, C and D. Each class is distinguished by the level of administrative support and transfer agent service provided. As of May 31, 1998, Class A, Class C and Class D shares are outstanding for certain Portfolios. 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The following is a summary of significant accounting policies consistently followed by the Portfolios in preparation of their financial statements. These policies are in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The presentation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (a) Investment Valuation Investments held by a Portfolio are valued at the last quoted sale price on the exchange on which such securities are primarily traded, or if any securities are not traded on a valuation date, at the last quoted bid price. Securities which are traded in the over-the-counter markets are valued at the last quoted bid price. Exchange traded futures and options are valued at the settlement price as established by the exchange on which they are traded. Index futures are marked to market on a daily basis. Any securities, including restricted securities, for which current quotations are not readily available are valued at fair value as determined in good faith by Northern under the supervision of the Board of Trustees ("Board"). Short-term investments are valued at amortized cost which Northern has determined, pursuant to Board authorization, approximates market value. (b) Investment Transactions and Investment Income Investment transactions are recorded as of the trade date. Realized gains and losses on investment transactions are calculated on the identified-cost basis. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis and includes amortization of discounts and premiums. The interest rates reflected in the Statements of Investments represent either the stated coupon rate, annualized yield on date of purchase for discount notes, the current reset rate for floating rate securities or, for interest only or principal only securities, the current effective yield. Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date. Dividends from foreign securities are recorded on the ex-date, or as soon as the information is available. (c) Deferred Organization Costs Organization related costs are being amortized on a straight-line basis over five years. (d) Expenses Expenses arising in connection with a specific Portfolio are allocated to that Portfolio. Certain expenses arising in connection with a class of shares are allocated to that class of shares. Expenses incurred which do not specifically relate to an individual Portfolio are allocated among the Portfolios based on each Portfolio's relative net assets. (e) Repurchase Agreements During the term of a repurchase agreement, the market value of the underlying collateral, including accrued interest, is required to exceed the market value of the repurchase agreement. The underlying collateral for all repurchase agreements is held in a customer-only account of Northern, as custodian for the Trust, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. (f) Futures Contracts Each Portfolio may invest in long or short futures contracts for hedging purposes, to increase total return (i.e., for 81 Northern Institutional Funds Fixed Income and Equity Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--CONTINUED May 31, 1998 (Unaudited) speculative purposes) or to maintain liquidity. The Portfolios bear the market risk arising from changes in the value of these financial instruments. At the time a Portfolio enters into a futures contract it is required to make a margin deposit with the custodian of a specified amount of liquid assets. Subsequently, as the market price of the futures contract fluctuates, gains or losses are recorded and payments are made, on a daily basis, between the portfolio and the broker. The Statements of Operations reflect gains and losses as realized for closed futures contracts and as unrealized for open futures contracts. At May 31, 1998, the Equity Index and Small Company Index Portfolios had entered into long exchange traded futures contracts. The aggregate market value of assets pledged to cover margin requirements for open positions at May 31, 1998, was approximately $1,005,000 and $74,000 for the Equity Index and Small Company Index Portfolios, respectively. (g) Options Contracts Each Portfolio may purchase and write (sell) put and call options on foreign and domestic stock indices, foreign currencies, and U.S. and foreign securities that are traded on U.S. and foreign securities exchanges and over- the-counter markets. These transactions are for hedging (or cross-hedging) purposes or for the purposes of earning additional income. The risk associated with purchasing an option is that the Portfolio pays a premium whether or not the option is exercised. Additionally, the Portfolio bears the risk of loss of premium and change in market value should the counterparty not perform under the contract. Put and call options purchased are accounted for in the same manner as Portfolio securities. The cost of securities acquired through the exercise of call options is increased by the premiums paid. The proceeds from securities sold through the exercise of put options are decreased by the premiums paid. In writing an option, the Portfolio bears the market risk of an unfavorable change in the price of the security or currency underlying the written option. Exercise of an option written by the Portfolio could result in the Portfolio selling or buying a security or currency at a price different from the current market value. The Portfolios did not write call or put options during the six months ended May 31, 1998. (h) Stripped Securities Stripped securities represent the right to receive future interest payments (interest only stripped securities) or principal payments (principal only stripped securities). The value of variable rate interest only stripped securities varies directly with changes in interest rates, while the value of fixed rate interest only securities and the value of principal only stripped securities vary inversely with changes in interest rates. (i) Forward Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts Certain Portfolios are authorized to enter into forward foreign currency exchange contracts for the purchase of a specific foreign currency at a fixed price on a future date as a hedge or cross-hedge against either specific transactions or portfolio positions. In addition, the International Bond and International Growth Portfolios may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts for speculative purposes. The objective of a Portfolio's foreign currency hedging transactions is to reduce the risk that the U.S. dollar value of the Portfolio's foreign currency denominated securities will decline in value due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. All forward foreign currency contracts are "marked-to-market" daily at the applicable exchange rates and any resulting unrealized gains or losses are recorded in the financial statements. The Portfolio records realized gains or losses when the forward contract is offset by entry into a closing transaction or extinguished by delivery of the currency. Risks may arise upon entering into these contracts from the potential inability of counterparties to meet the terms of their contracts and from unanticipated movements in the value of a foreign currency relative to the U.S. dollar. The contractual amounts of forward foreign currency exchange contracts do not necessarily represent the amounts potentially subject to risk. The measurement of the risks associated with these instruments is meaningful only when all related and offsetting transactions are considered. At May 31, 1998, there were no outstanding forward foreign currency exchange contracts. (j) Foreign Currency Translations Values of investments denominated in foreign currencies are converted into U.S. dollars using the spot market rate of exchange at the time of valuation. Cost of purchases and proceeds from sales of investments, interest and dividend income are translated into U.S. dollars using the spot market rate of exchange prevailing on the respective dates of such transactions. The gains or losses on investments resulting from changes in foreign exchange rates are included with net realized and unrealized gain (loss) on investments. 82 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (k) Federal Taxes It is each Portfolio's policy to comply with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code applicable to regulated investment companies and to distribute, each year, substantially all of its taxable income and capital gains to its shareholders. Therefore, no provision is made for federal taxes. At November 30, 1997, the Trust's most recent tax year end, the Portfolios had approximately the following amounts of capital loss carryforwards for U.S. federal tax purposes:
Year(s) of Amount Expiration ------------------------------------------------------- (in thousands) Intermediate Bond $ 21 2005 Short-Intermediate Bond 10 2005 U.S. Government Securities 130 2001 to 2003 U.S. Treasury Index 1,046 2002 to 2005 International Equity Index 4 2005 -------------------------------------------------------
These amounts are available to be carried forward to offset future capital gains to the extent permitted by applicable laws or regulations. (l) Distributions Dividends from net investment income are declared and paid as follows: ------------------------------------- Bond Monthly Intermediate Bond Monthly International Bond Quarterly Short-Intermediate Bond Monthly U.S. Government Securities Monthly U.S. Treasury Index Monthly Balanced Quarterly Diversified Growth Annually Equity Index Quarterly Focused Growth Annually International Equity Index Annually International Growth Annually Small Company Index Annually -------------------------------------
Each Portfolio's net realized capital gains are distributed at least annually. Income dividends and capital gain distributions are determined in accordance with income tax regulations. Such amounts may differ from income and capital gains recorded in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. 3. ADVISORY, TRANSFER AGENCY AND CUSTODIAN AGREEMENTS The Trust has an investment advisory agreement whereby each Portfolio pays Northern or NTQA, as the case may be, a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, based on a specified percentage of its average daily net assets. For the current period, Northern and NTQA each voluntarily agreed to waive a portion of the advisory fees as shown on the accompanying Statements of Operations. The annual advisory fees and waiver rates expressed as a percentage of average daily net assets for the six months ended May 31, 1998, are as follows:
Net Advisory Less: Advisory Fee Waiver Fee ---------------------------------------------------- Bond .60% .35% .25% Intermediate Bond .60 .35 .25 International Bond .90 .20 .70 Short-Intermediate Bond .60 .35 .25 U.S. Government Securities .60 .35 .25 U.S. Treasury Index .40 .25 .15 Balanced .80 .30 .50 Diversified Growth .80 .25 .55 Equity Index .30 .20 .10 Focused Growth 1.10 .30 .80 International Equity Index .50 .25 .25 International Growth 1.00 .20 .80 Small Company Index .40 .20 .20 ----------------------------------------------------
As compensation for the services rendered as transfer agent, including the assumption by Northern of the expenses related thereto, Northern receives a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, at an annual rate of .01%, .05%, .10% and .15% of the average daily net asset value of the outstanding Class A, B, C and D shares, respectively, for the Portfolios. 83 Northern Institutional Funds Fixed Income and Equity Portfolios ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--CONTINUED May 31, 1998 (Unaudited) 4. ADMINISTRATION AND DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENTS The Trust has an administration agreement with Goldman Sachs whereby each Portfolio pays the Administrator a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, at an annual rate of .10% of the Portfolio's average daily net assets, except the International Bond, International Equity Index and International Growth Portfolios which pay the Administrator a fee, computed daily and payable monthly, at an annual rate of .15% of their respective average daily net assets. In addition, if in any fiscal year the sum of a Portfolio's expenses, including the administration fee, but excluding the investment advisory fee to Northern pursuant to its agreements with the Trust, servicing fees, transfer agency fees and extraordinary expenses (such as taxes, interest and indemnification expenses), exceeds on an annualized basis .10% of a Portfolio's average daily net assets (0.25% for the International Bond, International Growth and International Equity Index Portfolios), Goldman Sachs will reimburse each Portfolio for the amount of the excess pursuant to the terms of the administration agreement. The administration expenses reimbursed during the six months ended May 31, 1998 are shown on the accompanying Statements of Operations. No administration fees were waived, under this agreement, during the six months ended May 31, 1998. Goldman Sachs receives no compensation under the distribution agreement. 5. SHAREHOLDER SERVICING PLAN The Trust has adopted a Shareholder Servicing Plan pursuant to which the Trust may enter into agreements with institutions or other financial intermediaries under which they will render certain shareholder administrative support services for their customers or other investors who beneficially own Class B, C and D shares. As compensation under the Shareholder Servicing Plan, the institution or other financial intermediary receives a fee at an annual rate of up to .10%, .15% and .25% of the average daily net asset value of the outstanding Class B, C and D shares, respectively. 6. INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS Investment transactions for the six months ended May 31, 1998 (excluding short-term investments) were as follows:
