Looking ahead, we believe volatility will remain a key factor in markets. While the economic backdrop has some encouraging drivers, notably an improving public-health backdrop and a healthy consumer supported by rising wages and high excess savings, we believe that inflation, shifting monetary policy, and geopolitical tensions are likely to increase volatility in the near term. In this higher-dispersion1 environment, skilled active managers can help investors navigate market turbulence by identifying which companies are likely to thrive vs. companies likely to fall by the wayside. We believe the Hartford Core Equity Fund is a compelling strategy that can help investors navigate elevated equity-market volatility.
