Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund's strategy for allocating assets among portfolio management teams may not work as intended. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • 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. These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. • The Fund's focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.

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.
