Hartford Funds Launches Environmental Opportunities Fund
Hartford Funds today announced that it has launched the Hartford Environmental Opportunities Fund (A-share: HEOMX), a mutual fund that invests in companies promoting environmental sustainability.
All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund’s share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. Risks of focusing on investments that involve sustainability and environmentally responsible investment criteria may influence investment performance relative to the Fund’s benchmark or competing funds and expose the Fund to increased risks related to downturns or other adverse developments in that market segment. Risks of focusing investments on the utilities and industrials sectors include regulatory and legal developments, competitive pressures, pricing and rate pressures (utilities), rapid technological changes, potential product obsolescence, and liquidity risk. Small-cap stocks can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap stocks. Foreign investments can be riskier than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as specific country, regional, and economic developments. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective.
“The Hartford” is The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. and its subsidiaries. Hartford Funds Distributors, LLC is a subsidiary of The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc.
