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. The Fund’s share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. If the Fund’s strategy for allocating assets among different asset classes and/or portfolio management teams does not work as intended, the Fund may not achieve its objective or may underperform other funds with similar investment strategies. Mid-cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. Foreign investments can be riskier than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase the Fund’s transaction costs and an investor’s tax liability.

Effective September 30, 2009, Class B shares of The Hartford Funds closed to new investors, and no new or additional investments, including investments through a systematic investment plan, will be allowed in Class B shares, except for permitted exchanges. For additional information about your privileges with respect to Class B shares, please refer to your prospectus and its supplements.
