Objective

Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF (”ROAM”) seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of Hartford Risk-Optimized Multifactor Emerging Markets Index (Bloomberg Ticker: LROAMX), which tracks the performance of emerging market equity securities.

More About Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF 

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

Set Risk Parameters

Seek to improve diversification versus a cap-weighted benchmark by reducing concentration at the country, sector, and individual company levels

Select Securities

Seek companies with a favorable combination of low valuation (50%), high momentum (30%), and high quality (20%) investment factors

Reconstitute and Rebalance

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

Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than actual data quoted. 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 higher or lower than the performance quoted.

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

Hartford Multifactor ETF Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Total returns are calculated using the daily 4:00pm Eastern Time net asset value (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 you would receive if you traded shares at other times. 

1 For comparison purposes, index "inception" return is based on the fund's inception date.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. ● Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets. ● Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. ● Due to its investment strategy, the fund may make higher capital gain distributions than other ETFs.

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).

Investors may acquire ETF Shares and tender them for redemption through the Fund in Creation Unit Aggregations only. Please see the prospectus for more details.
