Global International Equity fund

Hartford Multifactor International Fund   


Objective

Hartford Multifactor International Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of companies located in major developed markets of Europe, Canada and the Pacific Region.

Overview

Designed to provide equity exposure to developed markets (ex-US) with potentially less volatility over a complete market cycle than traditional capitalization-weighted indices.


Set Risk Parameters

Seek to improve diversification versus a cap-weighted benchmark by reducing concentration at the country, sector, and individual company levels

Select Securities

Seek companies with a favorable combination of low valuation (50%), high momentum (30%), and high quality (20%) investment factors

Reconstitute and Rebalance

Reapply the investment process twice a year in March and September to ensure the portfolio stays true to the rules-based index methodology

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. • The Fund is not actively managed but rather attempts to track the performance of an index. The Fund's returns may diverge from that of the index. • 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 and economic developments. These risks may be greater, and include additional risks, in particular geographic regions or countries. • Investments focused in a country, region, sector, industry or group of industries may increase volatility and risk. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities.
