Hartford Schroders International Multi-Cap Value Fund
November 2017 Monthly Update
Important Risks: All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Fund will achieve its stated objective. The Fund’s share price may fluctuate due to market risk and/or security selections that may underperform the market or relevant benchmarks. If the Fund’s strategy for allocating assets among different asset classes does not work as intended, the Fund may not achieve its objective or may underperform other funds with similar investment strategies. Foreign investments can be riskier and more volatile than U.S. investments due to the adverse effects of currency exchange rates, differences in market structure and liquidity, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions (e.g., “Brexit”). These risks are generally greater for investments in emerging markets. Small- and mid-cap securities can have greater risk and volatility than large-cap securities. Value investing may go out of favor, which may cause the Fund to underperform the broader stock market. The main risk of real estate related securities is that the value of the underlying real estate may decrease in value. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover, which could increase the Fund’s transaction costs and an investor’s tax liability. The Fund may be adversely affected when certain large shareholders purchase or redeem large amounts of shares of the Fund.
