Executive Order Regarding Certain Chinese Companies

On June 3, 2021, the President of the United States issued Executive Order 14032 (the “Order”) entitled “Addressing the Threat from Securities Investments that Finance Certain Companies of the People’s Republic of China.” The Order restricts U.S. persons from transacting in publicly traded securities of specified companies (referred to as “Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies”) that are involved in the defense and related materiel sector or the surveillance technology sector of the Chinese economy. The Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies are identified on a list maintained by the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). The restrictions set forth in the Order began to take effect on August 2, 2021. Hartford Funds and the Hartford Funds Family of Funds intend to comply with the Order. Information regarding a particular fund’s or exchange traded fund’s portfolio holdings are publicly available on our website. Please note that portfolio holdings for the mutual funds will be posted no earlier than 25 days after month-end in accordance with its policy and may not reflect current holdings. Hartford Funds will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure compliance with the Order and all related amendments.
