Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by allocating assets among different asset classes. 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. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • Mortgage related- and asset-backed securities' risks include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, and extension risk. • Obligations of U.S. Government agencies are supported by varying degrees of credit but are generally not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

Hartford HLS Funds are distributed by Hartford Funds Distributors, LLC (HFD), Member FINRA. Advisory services are provided by Hartford Funds Management Company, LLC (HFMC). The Funds are sub-advised by Wellington Management Company LLP, which is not affiliated with HFD or HFMC.
