Hartford Mutual Funds launches three funds

RELATED TOPICS​

The Hartford Mutual Funds has launched three new funds.

The Hartford Global Real Asset Fund and The Hartford Global All-Asset Fund offer investors global exposure at a time when global economies are changing rapidly and there is expanding demand for alternative investments.

"We expect these funds to be embraced by advisers whose clients seek active asset allocation, more sophisticated global diversification and long-term growth," says Keith Sloane, senior vice president of The Hartford Mutual Funds.

The third new offering, The Hartford International Value Fund, offers investors the benefits of international exposure with a style-focused, large-cap value approach.

The funds are sub-advised by Wellington Management, an independent and unaffiliated sub-adviser to The Hartford.

The Hartford Global Real Asset Fund seeks to provide a long-term total return that outpaces inflation over a macroeconomic cycle by investing in a globally diverse mix of inflation-related equity investments, inflation-linked bonds, and commodities.

The Hartford Global All-Asset Fund has a flexible and adaptive investment approach that gives portfolio managers the freedom to invest in any country, sector, or asset class, including stocks, bonds, cash, commodity-related instruments, currencies, and derivatives. The goal of the fund is to provide investors competitive returns with less risk than the stock market.

"Global All-Asset draws on Wellington Management’s proprietary research to identify global themes and opportunities that help shape the portfolio," says Sloane. "They have over USD16bn in assets in multi-asset strategies and 20 years of experience managing multi-asset portfolios."

The Hartford International Value Fund invests at least 65 per cent of its assets in equity securities of foreign issuers. It employs a traditional value philosophy to identify common stocks of companies that are financially sound but temporarily out of favour, provide above-average total-return potential and sell at below-average price-to-earnings ratios.
