Update on Executive Order Regarding Certain Chinese Companies
In November 2020, the President of the United States issued an Executive Order 13959 (the “Order”) to prohibit, among others, any transaction by any U.S. person in publicly traded securities of certain companies determined to be affiliated with China’s military. The Order took effect on January 11, 2021 and Hartford Funds is complying with the Order. With respect to the list of sanctioned securities included on the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s December 22, 2020 list and the three securities identified in the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s FAQ 864 dated January 6, 2021 related to the Order (collectively, the “OFAC List”), the Hartford mutual funds and exchange traded funds have sold any holdings in securities on the OFAC List on or before January 11, 2021. Hartford Funds will continue to monitor the situation to ensure ongoing compliance with the Order.
