Model-Delivery SMAs 

Exclusively available on third-party platforms, Hartford Funds model-delivery SMAs are designed to meet evolving investor needs.

A separately managed account (SMA) is a portfolio of individual securities managed independently on your behalf by a professional asset-management firm. With an SMA, investors benefit from direct ownership of securities versus investing in a mutual fund or ETF, where your money is pooled with that of other investors.

With a traditional SMA, you invest directly with the asset manager who tailors a portfolio to meet your individual investment objectives. A models-based SMA allows you to invest in SMA programs available at retail brokerage firms and other plan sponsors. With this structure, the asset manager provides a portfolio model to the third-party, who takes on full responsibility for trading and reporting.

Your financial professional can help determine the investment that is right for you.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the portfolio will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies.
