      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.

      SI = Since Inception. Fund Inception: 01/31/2018

      Share Class Inception: 11/12/21
      Share class performance prior to 11/15/21 reflects the performance, fees, and expenses of the Investor Class of the predecessor fund Schroder Core Bond Fund (the "Predecessor Fund") and, prior to 6/29/20, the performance of the Predecessor Fund's R6 Class. If Class I fees and expenses were reflected, performance would have differed.

      Characteristics

      Prior to the opening of business on 11/12/21, the Schroder Core Bond Fund (“Predecessor Fund”) was reorganized into the Hartford Schroders Sustainable Core Bond Fund, a new Hartford Fund with similar objective and strategies as the Predecessor Fund.  As a result, all data prior to 11/15/21 is that of the Predecessor Fund.

      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: The Fund is new and has a limited operating history. 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. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • The value of inflation-protected securities (IPS) generally fluctuates with changes in real interest rates, and the market for IPS may be less developed or liquid, and more volatile, than other securities markets. • Mortgage-related and asset-backed securities' risks include credit, interest-rate, prepayment, and extension risk. • Municipal securities may be adversely impacted by state/local, political, economic, or market conditions; these risks may be magnified if the Fund focuses its assets in municipal securities of issuers in a few select states. • Obligations of U.S. Government agencies are supported by varying degrees of credit but are generally not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. • Applying sustainability criteria to the investment process may result in foregoing certain investments and underperformance comparative to funds that do not have a similar focus. There is a risk that the securities identified by the sub-adviser as meeting its sustainable investing criteria do not operate as anticipated.• 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. • The purchase of securities in the To-Be-Announced (TBA) market can result in higher portfolio turnover and related expenses as well as price and counterparty risk. • 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. • 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. • Investments in high-yield ("junk") bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities. • The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase its transaction costs and an investor's tax liability.
