While sustainable investing has been increasingly popular in recent years, Schroders has been incorporating sustainability into our investment process for more than two decades. As one of the sub-advisers to Hartford Funds, Schroders believes that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations are as important as financial and fundamental investment considerations when it comes to managing assets. We believe the intrinsic benefit to you, your clients, and society is that companies with good ESG management often may perform better and offer the potential to deliver superior results over time.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Using a sustainable investing approach may cause a fund to underperform funds that do not have a similar focus. There is not a uniform approach to ESG integration and portfolio managers may take different approaches to how they integrate such factors into their investment process. The sub-adviser’s analysis, including any evaluation of ESG factors, may not achieve the intended results. For funds that use ESG integration, ESG factors are not the only factors considered and, as a result, the companies (or issuers) in which a fund invests may not be ESG companies (or issuers) or have high ESG ratings.
Some or all of the ESG or sustainable investing approaches described above may not be applicable to a Hartford fund sub-advised by Schroders.
