SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 12/31/1997
Operating Expenses:   Net  0.75% |  Gross  0.75%

Share Class Inception: 2/28/17
Class F-shares performance prior to 2/28/17 reflects Class I-shares performance and operating expenses, and, prior to 2/27/09 the performance and operating expenses of Class A-shares (excluding sales charges). Performance for Class F-shares prior to its inception date would have differed if Class F- operating expenses had been reflected. Since Inception (SI) performance is calculated from 12/31/97.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. The fund’s focus on investments in particular sectors may increase its volatility and risk of loss if adverse developments occur.
 

1The Morningstar Analyst Rating is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by the manager research analysts of Morningstar. Morningstar evaluates funds based on five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. Analysts use this five pillar evaluation to determine how they believe funds are likely to perform over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. They consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research, and the weighting of each pillar may vary. The Analyst Rating scale is Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, Negative. A Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflects an Analyst’s conviction in a fund’s prospects for outperformance. Analyst Ratings are continuously monitored and reevaluated at least every 14 months. The Morningstar Analyst Rating should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a mutual fund. Morningstar Analyst Ratings involve unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Morningstar’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what we expected. For more detailed information about Morningstar’s Analyst rating, including its methodology, please go to hartfordfunds.com/MorningstarAnalystMethodology.
