Effective 11/6/19, the Hartford Multifactor Diversified International Equity ETF changed its name, ticker symbol, principal investment strategy, and custom underlying index. See the Fund’s prospectus, as supplemented, for more information.

Objective

Hartford Multifactor Diversified International ETF ("RODE") seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of companies located in both developed and emerging markets.

Overview

Designed to provide equity exposure to developed market (excluding the US) and emerging markets with potentially less volatility over a complete market cycle than traditional capitalization-weighted indices

More About Hartford Multifactor Diversified International 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

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

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.

Effective 11/6/19, the Fund's custom underlying index changed from the Hartford Multifactor Low Volatility International Equity Index ("Low Volatility International Index") to Hartford Multifactor Diversified International Index ("Diversified International Index"). The Hartford Multifactor Diversified International Spliced Index reflects the performance of the Low Volatility International Index through 11/5/19 and the performance of the Diversified International Index thereafter. The Fund’s performance and historical returns shown for the periods prior to 11/6/19 are not necessarily indicative of the performance that the Fund would have generated based on its current custom underlying index.

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. Brokerage commissions apply and will reduce returns.

1 Index "inception" return is based on the fund's inception date.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • Small cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. • Investments focused in a particular sector or industry are subject to greater market volatility risk. 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.

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.
