Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and income. The fund invests in a combination of Hartford Funds ("underlying funds"): the Hartford Capital Appreciation Fund, which invests primarily in stocks selected on the basis of potential for capital appreciation; the Hartford Dividend and Growth Fund, which invests primarily in a portfolio of equity securities that typically have above average dividend yields; and the Hartford Total Return Bond Fund, which under normal circumstances invests at least 80% of its net assets in bonds. It will make equal allocations (one-third each) of its assets to the underlying funds.
The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of the overall U.S. stock market. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of two benchmark indexes. With approximately 60% of its assets, the fund seeks to track the investment performance of the CRSP U.S. Total Market Index. With approximately 40% of its assets, the fund seeks to track the investment performance of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Float Adjusted Index.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
