      Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF   
      Ticker - ROAM

      Effective 9/11/19, the Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF (Fund) changed its principal investment strategy and custom underlying index. See the Fund's prospectus for more information.


      Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF ("ROAM") seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index based upon the emerging markets of the world.


      Designed to provide equity exposure to the emerging markets with potentially less volatility over a complete market cycle than traditional capitalization-weighted indices.


      Our systematic, rules-based index methodology is designed to simultaneously address risks while seeking exposures to return-enhancing factors:

      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

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

      SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 02/25/2015

      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.

      Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs, or expenses.

      Effective 9/11/19, the Fund's custom underlying index changed from the Hartford Risk-Optimized Multifactor Emerging Markets Index ("Emerging Markets Index") to Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets Equity Index ("Emerging Markets Equity Index"). The Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets Equity Spliced Index reflects the performance of the Emerging Markets Index through 9/11/19 and the performance of the Emerging Markets Equity Index thereafter. The Fund’s performance and historical returns shown for the periods prior to 9/11/19 are not necessarily indicative of the performance that the Fund would have generated based on its current custom underlying index.

      ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, not net asset value (NAV). Total returns are calculated using the daily 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time NAV. Market price returns reflect the midpoint of the bid/ask spread as of the close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. Market price returns do not represent the returns an investor would receive if they traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions apply and will reduce returns.

      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 developments. These risks may be greater, and include additional risks, for investments in emerging markets and in particular geographic regions or countries. • Investments focused in a country, region, industry or group of industries may increase volatility and risk.
      Transactions in ETF shares will result in brokerage commissions and will generate tax consequences. All regulated investment companies are obliged to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders.
      IOPV, or Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value, is a calculation disseminated by the stock exchange that approximates the Fund's NAV every fifteen seconds throughout the trading day.
      Premium/discount reflects the relationship between an ETF's market price and its net asset value (NAV). Because ETFs are traded on an exchange, their market prices are in part driven by supply and demand dynamics. The ETF's market price may be above its NAV (reflecting a premium) or below its NAV (reflecting a discount).
