RELATED TOPICS​

Hartford Funds has expanded its socially responsible investment offering with the launch of the Hartford Global Impact Fund.

Sub-advised by Wellington Management, the fund will seek long-term capital appreciation by investing in companies that focus their operations in areas that are likely to address the world’s major social and environmental challenges.
 
The fund invests in companies that the sub-adviser believes are likely to address major social and environmental challenges including, but not limited to, health, clean water and sanitation, financial inclusion, alternative energy, and resource efficiency, as determined by Wellington.
 
“We’re delighted to expand our socially responsible investment solutions for investors who want to align their portfolios with their values,” says Anita Baldwin, managing director and head of research for Hartford Funds.
 
The Hartford Global Impact Fund complements Hartford Funds’ existing socially responsible investing solution, the Hartford Environmental Opportunities Fund (HEOMX). Launched in February 2016, the Environmental Opportunities Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by identifying companies it believes represent attractive investments and also address environmental challenges and/or seeks to improve the efficiency of resource consumption.
 
“The design and launch of the Hartford Global Impact Fund aligns with our human-centric investing philosophy and is a direct response to increasing advisor and investor demand for more products that take ESG factors into consideration,” adds Baldwin.
 
Wellington Management’s Eric Rice and Patrick Kent will manage the Hartford Global Impact Fund.
