Hartford Funds launches Hartford Schroders Tax-Aware Bond ETF


Hartford Funds has launched the Hartford Schroders Tax-Aware Bond Exchange-Traded Fund (NYSE: HTAB), expanding its roster to five actively managed fixed income ETFs and seven multifactor ETFs.

Sub-advised by Schroder Investment Management North America Inc (SIMNA), Hartford Schroders Tax-Aware Bond ETF seeks total return on an after-tax basis by investing in a diversified portfolio of taxable and tax-exempt fixed income debt instruments of varying maturities.
“Investors are seeking high quality fixed income solutions providing compelling after-tax returns at a competitive price,” says Vernon Meyer, Chief Investment Officer of Hartford Funds. “Further expanding our fixed income offerings allows us to match our strong mutual fund track record in tax-aware and municipal bond strategies with a similar investment approach in our growing ETF business.”
HTAB seeks to add value by working to capitalise on imbalances in the relationships among sectors and individual bonds, spanning both tax-exempt municipals and US dollar-denominated taxable bonds. The strategy manages interest-rate risk by shifting between sectors, assessing market conditions and adjusting duration. HTAB’s current expense ratio is 0.39 per cent.
