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. • Small-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities. • Different investment styles may go in and out favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. • 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.
