All performance data assume reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns.

Maximum Aggregate Annual Management Fees and Expenses

Effective January 1, 2002, the Maximum Aggregate Annual Management Fees and Expenses permitted to be charged were 2.00% for Class D units of the Funds excluding The Hartford Bond Fund and The Hartford Money Market Fund, which maintain maximums on expenses of 1.25% and 1.00% respectively (not applicable to The Hartford Canadian Value Fund, The Hartford Growth and Income Fund, The Hartford US Growth and Income Fund and The Hartford Canadian Equity Income Fund, which do not maintain maximums on expenses). Historically since 2002, the manager has voluntarily absorbed a certain portion of such expenses, although it was under no obligation to do so and is under no obligation to continue to do so. The Maximum Aggregate Annual Management Fees and Expenses cannot be increased beyond the specified maximums without unitholder approval of the particular Fund. If such increases in the MERs of the Funds had been in effect from inception of the Funds the performance data would have had reduced returns during the period from the inception date to the period shown.

Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA)/DCA Advantage Program

Continuous or periodic investment plans neither assure a profit nor protect against loss in declining markets. Because Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) involves continuous investing regardless of fluctuating price levels, you should carefully consider your financial ability to continue investing through periods of fluctuating prices.

The Advantage Yield Rate may be changed at the sole decision of the Manager, by ceasing to offer any additional units of a particular Series and offering a new Series of units with a specified Advantage Yield Rate by way of prospectus amendment. These rates reflect a stated yield above that expected to be generated by the units of The Hartford Money Market Fund and the Manager has agreed to pay investors the difference between the return generated by the DCA Units and the specified Advantage Yield Rate.

Investments in DCA Units are not guaranteed as the Advantage Yield Rate does not affect, or in any way guarantee, the value of DCA units. The Manager is obligated to pay the Advantage Yield Rate in respect of a particular DCA Units which is the applicable daily rate multiplied by the prior day’s net asset value of such unit. There can be no assurances that The Hartford Money Market Fund will be able to maintain its Net Asset Value per security at a constant amount or that the full amount of your investment in The Hartford Money Market Fund will be returned to you.

The Hartford Money Market Fund cannot be used as a destination/target fund. Initial minimum deposit amount is $10,000 for the DCA Advantage Program.
