Hartford Disciplined US Equity ETF   
Ticker - HDUS

Objective

Seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of exchange traded U.S. large-cap equity securities.

Overview

Designed to provide core US large-cap equity exposure by seeking balance and consistent exposure across multiple risk factors for return enhancement potential, while controlling for active risk compared to a similar broad market capitalization-weighted index.


Our systematic, rules-based index methodology is designed to simultaneously address risks while seeking exposures to return-enhancing factors:

Set Risk Parameters

Seeks to provide relative diversification to the index's starting universe over absolute diversification, with lower uncompensated active risk relative to the starting universe.

Select Securities

Seek companies with a favorable combination of low valuation, high momentum, high quality and dividend yield investment factors.

Reconstitute and Rebalance

Reapply the investment process twice a year in March and September to ensure the portfolio stays true to the rules-based index methodology.

SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 11/16/2022

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs, or expenses.

ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, not net asset value (NAV). Total returns are calculated using the daily 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time NAV. Market price returns reflect the midpoint of the bid/ask spread as of the close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. Market price returns do not represent the returns an investor would receive if they traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions apply and will reduce returns.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The net asset value (NAV) of the Fund's shares may fluctuate due to changes in the market value of the Fund's holdings which may in-turn fluctuate due to market and economic conditions. The market prices of the Fund's shares will generally fluctuate due to changes in the relative supply of and demand for the shares on an exchange. • The Fund is not actively managed but rather attempts to track the performance of an index. The Fund's returns may diverge from that of the index. • Investments focused in a sector, industry or group of industries may increase volatility and risk.
Transactions in ETF shares will result in brokerage commissions and will generate tax consequences. All regulated investment companies are obliged to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders.
IOPV, or Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value, is a calculation disseminated by the stock exchange that approximates the Fund's NAV every fifteen seconds throughout the trading day.
Premium/discount reflects the relationship between an ETF's market price and its net asset value (NAV). Because ETFs are traded on an exchange, their market prices are in part driven by supply and demand dynamics. The ETF's market price may be above its NAV (reflecting a premium) or below its NAV (reflecting a discount).
