Hartford Funds Launches US-Focused Real Estate ETF
Hartford Funds today has expanded its suite of strategic beta* exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) with the launch of the industry’s first US-focused real estate investment trust (“REIT”) ETF to apply the innovations of risk-first investment design with a multifactor approach (Ticker: RORE).
The MIT AgeLab is not an affiliate or subsidiary of Hartford Funds.
All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. One cannot invest directly in an index.
A concentration in real estate securities, such as REITs, may subject the Fund to risks associated with the direct ownership of real estate as well as the risks related to the way real estate companies are organized and operated. Real estate is sensitive to changes in interest rates and general and local economic conditions and developments. A non-diversified fund may be more exposed to the risks associated with single issuers than a diversified fund.
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a fund before investing.
