Morning Star Rating LOAD WAIVED CATEGORY SIZE
Overall ---
3 year 1409
5 year 1238
10 year 894

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Morningstar ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance as of January 31, 2016 and are subject to change every month. Ratings are based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variations in monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), emphasizing downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in a category receive five stars, the next 22.5% receive four stars, the next 35% receive three stars, the next 22.5% receive two stars, and the bottom 10% receive one star. The Overall Rating reflects a weighted average of a fund’s 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) risk-adjusted performance. Morningstar Load-Waived Ratings supplement Morningstar Ratings for Class A shares by recalculating measures that are load-adjusted without the effects of the front-end sales charge. Load-waived ratings should only be considered by investors who are not subject to the Fund's front-end sales charge.

Literature

Active-Trading Risk: Actively trading investments may result in higher costs and higher taxable income.

Asset-Allocation Strategy Risk: The portfolio managers’ asset-allocation strategy may not always work as intended, and asset allocation does not guarantee better performance or reduce the risk of investment loss. The investment styles employed by the portfolio managers may not be complementary, which could adversely affect the performance of the Fund.

Foreign Investment & Emerging Markets Risk: Investments in foreign securities may be riskier than investments in U.S. securities. Potential risks include the risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, less government regulation, less extensive and less frequent accounting and other reporting requirements, unfavorable changes in currency exchange rates, and economic and political disruptions. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets.

Market, Selection, and Strategy Risk: 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 sub-adviser’s investment strategy does not perform as expected, the Fund could underperform its peers or lose money. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective.

Mid-cap Stock Risk: Mid-cap stocks are generally more volatile and risky and may be less liquid than large-cap stocks because they may have limited operating histories, narrow product lines, and focus on niche markets.

Active Share is the percentage of a portfolio that differs from a benchmark index. High active share indicates a high degree of active management.

 

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.
