Taxable Bond fund

Hartford Floating Rate Fund    Share Class - I (HFLIX)


Seeks to provide high current income and long-term total return.


A fund that typically invests in floating-rate loans and securities that are below-investment-grade.

A Hedge Against Rising Rates

The prices of traditional bonds generally drop as interest rates rise. This happens because as new bonds are issued at higher rates, existing bonds with lower rates become less attractive to investors, causing them to drop in value.

The Fund invests in bank loans that adjust their interest rates every 30, 60, or 90 days, so they may be less affected by rising interest rates.

Attractive Yield and Diversification

The Fund may offer a higher yield than, and low correlation to, traditional bonds; it may add an extra layer of income and diversification to your fixed-income portfolio.

Experienced Management

Bank loans are a smaller asset class than many other types of bonds, which makes them difficult for individual investors to access. The Fund’s management team averages over 25 years of investment experience and is backed by the full resources of sub-adviser Wellington Management.

Credit exposure is the credit ratings for the underlying securities of the Fund as provided by Standard and Poor's (S&P), Moody's Investors Service, or Fitch and typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to C/D (lowest). If S&P, Moody's, and Fitch assign different ratings, the median rating is used. If only two agencies assign ratings, the lower rating is used. Securities that are not rated by any of the three agencies are listed as "Not Rated." Ratings do not apply to the Fund itself or to Fund shares. Ratings may change.

Important Risks: 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. • Loans can be difficult to value and less liquid than other types of debt instruments; they are also subject to nonpayment, collateral, bankruptcy, default, extension, prepayment and insolvency risks. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, event and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • Investments in high-yield ("junk") bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities. • Derivatives are generally more volatile and sensitive to changes in market or economic conditions than other securities; their risks include currency, leverage, liquidity, index, pricing, regulatory and counterparty risk. • 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, economic and regulatory developments. • The Fund's investments may fluctuate in value over a short period of time. • Changes related to LIBOR could have an adverse impact on financial instruments that reference this rate. • Integration of environmental, social, and/or governance (ESG) characteristics into the investment process may not work as intended.
The Fund should not be considered an alternative to CDs or money market funds. This Fund is intended for investors who are looking to complement their traditional fixed-income investments.
