Explore Another ETFs

Objective

Hartford Multifactor Global Small Cap ETF (”ROGS”) seeks
to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of Hartford Risk-Optimized Multifactor Global Small Cap Index (Bloomberg Ticker: LROGSX), which tracks the performance of small cap companies in the US, developed and emerging markets.

Overview

Designed to provide equity exposure to global small cap markets with potentially less volatility over a complete market cycle than traditional capitalization-weighted indices

More About Hartford Multifactor Global Small Cap 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 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. 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. The Fund is new and has a limited operating history.

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

A WORD ABOUT RISK

All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective. Foreign investing involves special risks, such as risk of loss from currency fluctuation or political or economic uncertainty. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. Small cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. Due to the investment strategy of this Fund it may make higher capital gain distributions than other ETFs. Please read the Fund’s prospectus for specific details regarding the Fund’s risk profile.

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.
