Designed to provide equity exposure to the US market
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, market cap, and individual company levels
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.
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. 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 sector, industry or group of industries may increase volatility and 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.
