Hartford Funds Launches Hartford Global Impact Fund, Expanding Socially Responsible Investing Lineup
Hartford Funds today announced that it has launched the Hartford Global Impact Fund (A-share: HGXAX).
All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective. The Fund’s share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. Foreign investments can be riskier and more volatile than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions (e.g., “Brexit”). These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. Small-cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. Investing in companies that seek to address major social and environmental challenges may cause the Fund to forego certain investment opportunities and underperform Funds that do not have a similar focus. By investing in cash and money market investments, the Fund may lose the benefit of market upswings. Because it invests in a master portfolio, the Fund is also subject to the risks related to a master-feeder structure.
