For the past decade, investors have experienced dramatic market swings that have tested the patience of even the most seasoned of us. Meanwhile, interest rates on investments are near historical lows, and the prices of everything from college tuition to healthcare costs are rising.
At The Hartford Mutual Funds, we are confident we can help investors face the challenges of today’s market. Our confidence stems from three factors:
- The Breadth of our Solutions: Our fund family offers 54 funds that cover a wide range of investment styles—large-caps, mid-caps and small-caps; growth and value; domestic and international; and a variety of niche asset classes such as emerging-market local debt and floating-rate securities—everything investors need to help build a diversified portfolio. Whether we’re in a bull, bear, or sideways market, our diverse line-up of mutual funds can help you plan for a brighter future.
- A Sophisticated Investment Platform: The Hartford Mutual Funds chose Wellington Management as the sole sub-adviser for our retail funds due in part to the sophistication of its investment platform. Wellington Management is one of the nation’s oldest and largest money managers, with a long-term track record in nearly all sectors of the liquid, global-securities markets. The firm has $719 billion in assets under management (as of March 31, 2012) consisting of equity, fixed-income, and multi-asset strategies—a reflection of the firm’s strength in a wide variety of investment disciplines.
- Our Unwavering Belief in the Value of Advice: Today’s challenges can turn into tomorrow’s opportunities with the help of a trusted financial advisor. An advisor can help you design and implement a financial plan that’s right for you to address issues ranging from saving for retirement to funding your children’s or grandchildren’s education. In addition, he or she can help you avoid the costly mistakes that are often made as a result of emotional investing.
