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.

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. ● A concentration in real estate securities, such as REITs, may subject a 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. ● The fund may invest in a smaller number of issuers, so it may be more exposed to risks and volatility than a more broadly diversified fund. ● 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.
