Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from North Track Funds

    MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- North
 Track Funds announced today the launching of two new, unique funds based on
 indexes compiled by Dow Jones -- Dow Jones U.S. Healthcare 100 Plus Fund and
 Dow Jones U.S. Financial 100 Plus Fund, effective April 17, 2001.
     In making the announcement, Robert J. Tuszynski, President and Chief
 Executive Officer, North Track Funds, said, "At North Track, we are providing
 investors with a pro-active portfolio development strategy, using a
 combination of index and actively managed mutual funds -- with the core, or
 primary growth holdings, made up of sector-specific index funds.  This
 strategy, we believe, creates a portfolio with broader diversification among
 sectors, fewer holes, fewer gaps and fewer missed opportunities.  It is at the
 heart of the "North Track Sharper Investment Focus.
     "With the new Dow Jones North Track Funds," Mr. Tuszynski said, "instead
 of focusing on investment styles such as growth, value, small-cap and
 large-cap, North Track focuses on demographics and how people spend and invest
 their money.  Demographics studies tell us that among all the sectors in the
 U.S. economy, Health Care and Financial Services have been, and will continue
 to be, among the most likely sectors to experience growth.
     "To offer index-based vehicles in these two sectors, we are pleased,"
 Mr. Tuszynski noted, "to have joined with the prestigious Dow Jones
 organization in our offering these unique North Track Dow Jones U.S. Health
 Care 100 Plus and Dow Jones U.S. Financial 100 Plus funds.  These new funds,"
 Mr. Tuszynski added, "join with our highly successful PSE Tech 100 Index and
 S&P 100 Plus Fund as the core in our Sharper Investment Focus Strategy.  The
 explore elements consist of North Track's two high-quality bond funds
 providing tax-free interest income (the Tax-Exempt and Wisconsin Tax-Exempt
 funds), a Government Fund made up of bonds backed by the full faith and credit
 of the United States Government, and our Managed Growth and Achievers Funds
 offering investors the additional elements of long-term growth through
 investments in quality stocks."
     This press release may not be used in connection with the offering of
 securities unless preceded or accompanied by a current prospectus.  The S&P
 100 Plus, Dow Jones U.S. Health Care 100 Plus and Dow Jones Financial 100 Plus
 Funds do not intend to replicate their benchmark indices at all times.
