Hartford Disciplined US Equity ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of exchange traded U.S. large cap equity securities.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.19%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.19%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$19
$61
$107
$243
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 90% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Disciplined US Equity Index (LHDUSX) (the “Index”), which seeks to enhance the return potential available from investments in U.S. large cap equities. The Index methodology seeks to enhance return potential through multifactor stock selection while applying a comprehensive risk framework to overall Index construction. The rules-based, proprietary methodology utilizes an optimization process to target balanced exposures across value, momentum, and quality factors while seeking to enhance dividend yield, control for total active risk and reduce the volatility level relative to the capitalization-weighted universe. The Index’s components are adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index is comprised of large capitalization securities, which are defined as securities included among the 1,000 largest U.S. companies by estimated free-float market capitalization. The capitalization range of the Index was $270 million to $2.9 trillion as of December 31, 2023. The Index is expected to typically include approximately 300-400 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time. The Index, developed by Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”), seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, country, company, and currency concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but also may reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
3

The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities of the Index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain instruments that are not included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index, but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Large Cap Securities Risk –  Returns on investments in stocks of large U.S. companies could trail the returns on investments in stocks of smaller and mid-sized companies.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the
4

current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
New Fund Risk –  The Fund is a new fund which may result in additional risk. There can be no assurance that the Fund will grow to an economically viable size, in which case the Fund may cease operations. In such an event, investors may be required to liquidate or transfer their investments at an inopportune time.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and ”More Information about Risks“ in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.

PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The bar chart shows the Fund’s total return for the first full calendar year of operations. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and another broad measure of market performance, which is also the Fund’s regulatory benchmark. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Updated performance information is available by visiting our website at hartfordfunds.com.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that
6

have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Hartford Longevity Economy ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Longevity Economy Index (LHLGEX) (the “Index”), which is designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns by investing in companies that comprise industries that reflect certain themes that are expected to benefit from the growth of the aging population and the substantial buying power it represents.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.44%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.44%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$45
$141
$246
$555
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 55% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Longevity Economy Index (LHLGEX) (the “Index”), which is designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns by investing in companies that comprise industries that reflect certain themes that are expected to benefit from the growth of the aging population and the substantial buying power it represents. The starting longevity economy universe is comprised of industries that the investment adviser believes are most likely to benefit from the growth in longevity economy thematic investing. The Fund seeks to invest in those industries that the investment adviser believes may benefit from providing the goods and services that reflect the longevity economy themes identified by the investment adviser. These longevity economy themes include, but are not limited to, aging in place/home modification, working longer/private education, performance health and comfort, wellbeing, maintaining social connections, financial freedom, staying mobile, human enhancement and leisure and entertainment. These themes may change from time to time as the needs and preferences of the aging populations develop. The Fund may invest in issuers of any market capitalization although the Fund will generally invest in issuers with large market capitalizations. The Index seeks to address risks and opportunities within the U.S. longevity economy universe by selecting equity securities of companies exhibiting a favorable combination of factor characteristics, including valuation, momentum, and quality. The Index seeks to outperform a capitalization-weighted universe of U.S. large capitalization equity securities, as represented by the Russell 3000 Index, over a complete market cycle.
The Index is built with a rules-based, proprietary methodology, which employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to address active risks versus the cap-weighted universe, accounting for liquidity and volatility risks. The Index’s components are selected based on these factors and each component’s inclusion in one of the industries that reflect the Fund’s longevity economy themes. The Index’s components are risk- and factor-adjusted twice annually, with reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on December 31, 2020. The components of the Index may range from 300 to 400, and the degree to which these components represent certain
8

industries, may change over time. The industry weightings within the Index are based on Lattice Strategies LLC’s (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”) level of conviction that a given industry will benefit from the Fund’s longevity economy themes. The Index, developed by the Adviser, seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, country, company, and currency concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but may also reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration in countries and individual equities. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities included in the Index and in depositary receipts representing securities included in the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain derivative instruments that may not be included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is the property of Lattice, which has contracted with S&P Opco LLC (a subsidiary of S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC) to calculate and maintain the Index. The Index is not sponsored by S&P Dow Jones Indices or its affiliates or its third-party licensors and none of those parties will be liable for any errors or omissions in calculating the Index. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see“Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Large Cap Securities Risk –  The securities of large market capitalization companies may underperform other segments of the market because such companies may be less responsive to competitive challenges and opportunities and may be unable to attain high growth rates during periods of economic expansion.
Longevity Economy Investment Focus Risk –  The Fund’s focus on securities of issuers that are expected to benefit from providing goods and services that are needed by or attractive to the aging populations may affect the Fund’s exposure to certain industries or types of investments. The Fund’s relative investment performance may also be affected depending on whether such industries or investments are in or out of favor with the market. Certain investments may be dependent on U.S. and foreign government policies, including tax incentives and subsidies and developments affecting companies focused on longevity and aging solutions generally. In addition, under certain market conditions, the Fund may underperform funds that invest in a broader array of investments.
9

Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
10

Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and “More Information about Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The bar chart shows the Fund’s performance for each calendar year since the Fund’s inception. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and another broad measure of market performance, which is also the Fund’s regulatory benchmark. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Updated performance information is available by visiting our website at hartfordfunds.com.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Hartford Multifactor Developed Markets (ex-US) ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of companies located in major developed markets of Europe, Canada and the Pacific Region.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.29%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.29%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$30
$93
$163
$368
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 38% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Risk-Optimized Multifactor Developed Markets (ex-US) Index (LRODMX) (the “Index”), which is designed to address risks and opportunities within developed markets located outside the U.S. The Index selects equity securities of companies domiciled within developed international equity markets that exhibit a favorable combination of factors, including valuation, momentum, and quality. The Index seeks to outperform a capitalization-weighted universe of companies located in major developed markets of Europe, Canada and the Pacific Region over a complete market cycle with up to 15% less volatility compared to that of the capitalization-weighted universe through the Index construction process. Risk-Optimized refers to the approach Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”) takes in the development and management of the Index. The Index, developed by Lattice, seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, country, company, and currency concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process. Risk-optimized does not mean “lower risk,” but rather refers to the deliberate and intentional re-allocation of specific risks.
The Index is built with a rules-based, proprietary methodology that employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to address risks associated with the cap-weighted universe, accounting for size, country, liquidity and volatility risks. Specifically, the Index seeks to de-concentrate individual country and currency risks while emphasizing companies that exhibit persistent risk premium factors, including but not limited to, quality, momentum, and value. The Index’s components are risk- and factor-adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on December 31, 2013. The Index is expected to typically include 300-400 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time.
13

The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but may also reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration in countries and individual equities. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities included in the Index and in depositary receipts (such as American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”)) representing securities included in the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain derivative instruments that may not be included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Foreign Investments Risk –  Investments in foreign securities may be riskier, more volatile, and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities. Differences between the U.S. and foreign regulatory regimes and securities markets, including the less stringent investor protection, less stringent accounting, corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure standards of some foreign markets, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions and the U.S. (including the imposition of sanctions, tariffs, or other governmental restrictions), may affect the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities. Changes in currency exchange rates may also adversely affect the Fund’s foreign investments.
Currency Risk –  The risk that the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities or currencies will be affected by the value of the applicable currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency or foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the investment increases in value in its local market. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the revenue earned by issuers of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Mid-Cap Securities Risk –  The securities of mid-capitalization companies generally trade in lower volumes and are generally subject to greater and less predictable price changes than the securities of larger capitalization companies.
14

Regional/Country Focus Risk –  To the extent that the Fund focuses its investments in a particular geographic region or country, the Fund may be subject to increased currency, political, regulatory and other risks. A natural or other disaster could occur in a geographic region in which the Fund invests, which could affect the economy or particular business operations of companies in the specific geographic region. As a result, the Fund may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments.
To the extent the Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a particular economic region, such as Europe or Asia, the Fund will be more exposed to the economic and other risks associated with that region.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
15

Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and “More Information about Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The bar chart shows the Fund’s performance for each calendar year since the Fund’s inception. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and another broad measure of market performance, which is also the Fund’s regulatory benchmark. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

$30
$93
$163
$368
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 58% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Multifactor Diversified International Index (LRODEX) (the “Index”), which is designed to enhance return potential available from investment in a capitalization-weighted universe of developed and emerging markets located outside the U.S. The Index methodology seeks to enhance return potential available from investment in developed markets (excluding the US) and emerging market companies while reducing volatility by up to 15% compared to that of the capitalization-weighted universe over a complete market cycle through the Index construction process.
The Index is built with a rules-based, proprietary methodology, which employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to address the risks associated with the cap-weighted universe, accounting for liquidity and volatility risks. Specifically, the Index seeks to select companies exhibiting attractive risk premium profiles, including but not limited to, quality, momentum, and value, while managing overall volatility levels and other risks. The Index’s components are adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on June 28, 2019. Each equity security must be within the top 85% of the applicable country’s estimated free float market capitalization and have an average daily trading volume with an equivalent value of $1 million or more. The Index is expected to typically include 300-400 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time. The Index, developed by Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”), seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, company concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but also may
18

reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration in countries and individual equities. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in the equity securities that are components of the Index and in depositary receipts (such as American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”)) representing securities of the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain derivative instruments that may not be included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index, but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Foreign Investments Risk –  Investments in foreign securities may be riskier, more volatile, and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities. Differences between the U.S. and foreign regulatory regimes and securities markets, including the less stringent investor protection, less stringent accounting, corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure standards of some foreign markets, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions and the U.S. (including the imposition of sanctions, tariffs, or other governmental restrictions), may affect the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities. Changes in currency exchange rates may also adversely affect the Fund’s foreign investments.
Emerging Markets Risk –  The risks related to investing in foreign securities are generally greater with respect to investments in companies that conduct their principal business activities in emerging markets or whose securities are traded principally on exchanges in emerging markets. The risks of investing in emerging markets include risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, smaller market capitalizations, less government regulation and oversight, less extensive and less frequent accounting, financial, auditing and other reporting requirements, significant delays in settlement of trades, risk of loss resulting from problems in share registration and custody and substantial economic and political disruptions. In addition, the imposition of exchange controls (including repatriation restrictions), sanctions, confiscations, trade restrictions (including tariffs) and other government restrictions by the United States and other governments may also result in losses. Frontier markets are those emerging markets that are considered to be among the smallest, least mature and least liquid, and as a result, the risks of investing in emerging markets are magnified in frontier markets.

Currency Risk –  The risk that the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities or currencies will be affected by the value of the applicable currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency or foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the investment increases in value in its local market. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the revenue earned by issuers of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Regional/Country Focus Risk –  To the extent that the Fund focuses its investments in a particular geographic region or country, the Fund may be subject to increased currency, political, regulatory and other risks. A natural or other disaster could occur in a geographic region in which the Fund invests, which could affect the economy or particular business operations of companies in the specific geographic region. As a result, the Fund may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments.
To the extent the Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a particular economic region, such as Europe or Asia, the Fund will be more exposed to the economic and other risks associated with that region.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly
20

those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and “More Information about Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The performance information below reflects the Fund’s performance when it pursued a different principal investment strategy and tracked a different proprietary custom benchmark index prior to November 6, 2019. The bar chart shows the Fund’s performance for each calendar year since the Fund’s inception. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and another broad measure of market performance, which is also the Fund’s regulatory benchmark. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Updated performance information is available by visiting our website at hartfordfunds.com.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
22

PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index based upon the emerging markets of the world.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.44%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.44%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$45
$141
$246
$555
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 71% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets Equity Index (LROEMX) (the “Index”), which is designed to balance risks and opportunities within equity markets of emerging economies while emphasizing constituents exhibiting a favorable combination of factor characteristics. The Index methodology seeks to enhance return potential available from investment in emerging market companies while reducing volatility by up to 15% compared to that of a capitalization-weighted universe of emerging market companies over a complete market cycle through the Index construction process.
The Index is comprised of securities of issuers located in emerging markets. The Index methodology seeks to enhance return potential through multifactor stock selection while applying a comprehensive risk framework to overall Index construction. The rules-based, proprietary methodology utilizes an optimization process to help achieve the desired composition and targeted characteristics, including reduced volatility, relative sector, country and size constraints and positive value, momentum, and quality relative factor scores at the portfolio level. Each equity security must be within the top 85% of the applicable country’s market capitalization and have an average daily trading volume with an equivalent value of $1 million or more. As of December 31, 2023, the approximate market capitalization range of components of the Index was $784 million to $539 billion. The Index’s components are adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on June 28, 2019. The Index is expected to typically include 250-350 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time. The Index, developed by Lattice, seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, country, company, and currency concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but may also
24

reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration in individual countries or securities. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities of the Index and in depositary receipts (such as American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and European Depositary Receipts (“EDRs”)) representing securities of the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain derivative instruments that may not be included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. Emerging markets are considered to be those countries with economies exhibiting growing liquidity, increasing stability and infrastructure which are not yet considered to be developed markets. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Foreign Investments Risk –  Investments in foreign securities may be riskier, more volatile, and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities. Differences between the U.S. and foreign regulatory regimes and securities markets, including the less stringent investor protection, less stringent accounting, corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure standards of some foreign markets, as well as political and economic developments in foreign countries and regions and the U.S. (including the imposition of sanctions, tariffs, or other governmental restrictions), may affect the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities. Changes in currency exchange rates may also adversely affect the Fund’s foreign investments.
Emerging Markets Risk –  The risks related to investing in foreign securities are generally greater with respect to investments in companies that conduct their principal business activities in emerging markets or whose securities are traded principally on exchanges in emerging markets. The risks of investing in emerging markets include risks of illiquidity, increased price volatility, smaller market capitalizations, less government regulation and oversight, less extensive and less frequent accounting, financial, auditing and other reporting requirements, significant delays in settlement of trades, risk of loss resulting from problems in share registration and custody and substantial economic and political disruptions. In addition, the imposition of exchange controls (including repatriation restrictions), sanctions,
25

confiscations, trade restrictions (including tariffs) and other government restrictions by the United States and other governments may also result in losses. Frontier markets are those emerging markets that are considered to be among the smallest, least mature and least liquid, and as a result, the risks of investing in emerging markets are magnified in frontier markets.
Currency Risk –  The risk that the value of the Fund’s investments in foreign securities or currencies will be affected by the value of the applicable currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency or foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the investment increases in value in its local market. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the revenue earned by issuers of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Regional/Country Focus Risk –  To the extent that the Fund focuses its investments in a particular geographic region or country, the Fund may be subject to increased currency, political, regulatory and other risks. A natural or other disaster could occur in a geographic region in which the Fund invests, which could affect the economy or particular business operations of companies in the specific geographic region. As a result, the Fund may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments.
To the extent the Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a particular economic region, such as Europe or Asia, the Fund will be more exposed to the economic and other risks associated with that region.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
26

Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and “More Information about Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.

If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Hartford Multifactor Small Cap ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of small capitalization exchange traded equity securities.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.34%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.34%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$35
$109
$191
$431
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 47% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Multifactor Small Cap Index (LROSCX) (the “Index”), which is designed to address risks and opportunities within the United States small cap universe by selecting equity securities of companies exhibiting a favorable combination of factor characteristics, including valuation, momentum, and quality. The Index seeks to enhance the return potential available from investment in a capitalization-weighted universe of U.S. small capitalization equity securities over a complete market cycle with up to 15% less volatility compared to that of the capitalization-weighted universe through the Index construction process.
The Index is built with a rules-based, proprietary methodology, which employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to address the risks associated with the cap-weighted universe, accounting for liquidity and volatility risks. Specifically, the Index seeks to select companies exhibiting attractive risk premium profiles, including but not limited to, quality, momentum, and value, while managing overall volatility levels and other risks. The Index’s components are adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on June 28, 2019. Small cap securities are defined as the smallest up to 2,000 companies among the up to 3,000 largest U.S. companies by estimated free-float market capitalization. The capitalization range of the Index was $68 million to $10.8 billion as of December 31, 2023. The Index is expected to typically include 250-350 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time. The Index, developed by Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”), seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, company concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
30

The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but also may reduce some of the risks of active management, such as poor security selection. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings for investment purposes) in securities of the Index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain derivative instruments that may not be included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index, but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Small Cap Securities Risk –  Investments in small capitalization companies involve greater risks than investments in larger, more established companies. Many of these companies are young and have limited operating or business history. These securities may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements and may lack sufficient market liquidity, and these issuers often face greater business risks, including the risk of bankruptcy.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in
31

large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.

The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and ”More Information about Risks“ in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The performance information below reflects the Fund’s performance when it pursued a different principal investment strategy and tracked a different proprietary custom benchmark index prior to November 6, 2019. The bar chart shows the Fund’s performance for each calendar year since the Fund’s inception. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and two other market indices. The Russell 2000 Index is the Fund’s underlying reference index, which the investment adviser believes better represents the Fund’s investment strategy. The Russell 3000 Index serves as the Fund’s regulatory benchmark and provides a broad measure of market performance. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Updated performance information is available by visiting our website at hartfordfunds.com.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Hartford Multifactor US Equity ETF Summary Section
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of an index that tracks the performance of exchange traded U.S. equity securities.
YOUR EXPENSES. The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or the example below.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment):
Management fees
0.19%
Distribution and service (12b-1) fees
None
Other expenses
0.00%
Total annual fund operating expenses
0.19%
Example. The example below is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other exchange-traded funds. The example assumes that:
Your investment has a 5% return each year
The Fund’s operating expenses remain the same
Your actual costs may be higher or lower. Based on these assumptions, for every $10,000 invested, you would pay the following expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:
Year 1
Year 3
Year 5
Year 10
$19
$61
$107
$243
Portfolio Turnover. The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 58% of the average value of its portfolio.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to the total return performance of the Hartford Multifactor Large Cap Index (LROLCX) (the “Index”), which seeks to enhance the return potential available from investment in the initial capitalization-weighted universe while reducing volatility by up to 15% compared to that of the capitalization-weighted universe over a complete market cycle through the Index construction process. The Index methodology seeks to enhance return potential through multifactor stock selection while applying a comprehensive risk framework to overall Index construction. The rules-based, proprietary methodology uses an optimization process to help achieve the desired composition and targeted characteristics, including reduced volatility, relative sector and size constraints, and positive value, momentum, and quality relative factor scores at the portfolio level. The Index’s components are adjusted twice annually, with a reconstitution and rebalance occurring in March and September. The Index was established on June 28, 2019. The Index is comprised of large capitalization securities, which are defined as securities included among the 1,000 largest U.S. companies by estimated free-float market capitalization. The capitalization range of the Index was $99 million to $2.9 trillion as of December 31, 2023. The Index is expected to typically include 300-400 components. The components of the Index, the number of components and the degree to which these components represent certain industries, may change over time. The Index, developed by Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”), seeks to address identified risks within its asset class. For example, country, company, and currency concentrations, valuation insensitivity, and other unmanaged risk factors may be addressed through the index management process.
The Adviser uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued. Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Index but also may reduce some of the risks of active management, such as over concentration. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by keeping portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
35

The Fund generally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities of the Index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in certain instruments that are not included in the Index, cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, as well as in securities that are not included in the Index, but that the sub-adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. To the extent that the Index concentrates (i.e., holds 25% or more of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of industries, the Fund will do so in approximately the same amount as the Index. The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund’s total assets (including the value of the collateral received) in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.
The Index is sponsored by Lattice. Lattice determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Index. The Index is calculated and distributed by Solactive AG. Additional information on the Index can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
PRINCIPAL RISKS. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. As with any fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. For more information regarding risks and investment matters, please see “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
Index Tracking Risk –  While the Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index as closely as possible (i.e., achieve a high degree of correlation with the Index), the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, regulatory requirements and operational inefficiencies.
Market Risk –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which the Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities of a company may decline in value due to its financial prospects and activities, including certain operational impacts, such as data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Securities may also decline in value due to general market and economic movements and trends, including adverse changes to credit markets, or as a result of other events such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, or widespread pandemics (such as COVID-19) or other adverse public health developments.
Equity Risk –  The risk that the price of equity or equity related securities may decline due to changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions.
Large Cap Securities Risk –  The securities of large market capitalization companies may underperform other segments of the market because such companies may be less responsive to competitive challenges and opportunities and may be unable to attain high growth rates during periods of economic expansion.
Market Price Risk –  The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and changes in the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that the Fund’s shares will remain listed on the exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) the Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor the Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether the Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for the Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of the Fund’s holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent the Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk –  The Fund is managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the Fund may hold constituent securities of the Index regardless of the
36

current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Fund’s return to be lower than if the Fund employed an active strategy.
Index Related Risk –  The Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what the Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the Index it publishes, and does not guarantee that the Index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. The mandate of the Adviser and sub-adviser, as described in this prospectus, is to manage the Fund consistently with its respective Index. Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with the Index’s errors will generally be borne by the Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where the Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to the Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from Index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may also carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to the Index in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where the Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to the Index may also expose the Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s Index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to the Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of the Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone a scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition.
Industry Concentration Risk –  Although the Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of the Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that the Index is concentrated in a particular industry, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If the Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, the Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Valuation Risk –  The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares.
The Fund is subject to certain other risks, which are discussed in “Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks” and ”More Information about Risks“ in the Fund’s statutory prospectus.
PAST PERFORMANCE. The performance information below indicates the risks of investing in the Fund. Keep in mind that past performance does not indicate future results. Updated performance information is available at hartfordfunds.com. The performance information below reflects the Fund’s performance when it pursued a different principal investment strategy and tracked a different proprietary custom benchmark index prior to
37

September 11, 2019. The bar chart shows the Fund’s performance for each calendar year since the Fund’s inception. The table shows how the Fund’s average annual total returns for different periods compare to the returns of the Index and another broad measure of market performance, which is also the Fund’s regulatory benchmark. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual U.S. federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. In some instances, the “Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares” may be greater than “Return Before Taxes” because the investor is assumed to be able to use the capital loss from the sale of Fund shares to offset other taxable gains. Actual after-tax returns, which depend on an investor’s particular tax situation, may differ from those shown and are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Updated performance information is available by visiting our website at hartfordfunds.com.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF FUND SHARES. The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Individual Fund shares may only be purchased and sold on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may not be purchased or redeemed directly with the Fund. The price of Fund shares is based on market price, and because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than at NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). When buying and selling Fund shares on an exchange, therefore, investors may incur costs related to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase Fund shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for Fund shares (ask) (the “bid-ask spread”). The Fund will only issue or redeem shares at NAV that have been aggregated into blocks of shares (“Creation Units”) to authorized participants (“Authorized Participants”) who
38

have entered into participant agreements with the Fund‘s distributor, ALPS Distributors, Inc. (the “Distributor”). The Fund will issue or redeem Creation Units in return for a basket of securities and/or cash that the Fund specifies each business day. Additional information about the Fund, including the Fund’s net asset value, market price, premiums and discounts and bid-ask spreads can be found at hartfordfunds.com.
TAX INFORMATION. The Fund’s distributions are generally taxable, and may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES. If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund’s related companies may pay the intermediary for services and/or data related to the sale of Fund shares. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial intermediary to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial intermediary or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Summary Information About the Exchange-Traded Funds
This prospectus describes seven ETFs: Hartford Disciplined US Equity ETF, Hartford Longevity Economy ETF, Hartford Multifactor Developed Markets (ex-US) ETF, Hartford Multifactor Diversified International ETF, Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF, Hartford Multifactor Small Cap ETF, and Hartford Multifactor US Equity ETF (each a “Fund” and, collectively, the “Funds”). Each Fund is offered by Lattice Strategies Trust (the “Trust”).
Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice”) is the investment adviser to each Fund and Mellon Investments Corporation (“Mellon”) is each Fund’s sub-adviser. The Funds provide access to the professional investment advisory services offered by Lattice and Mellon. ETFs are funds that trade on an exchange like other publicly-traded securities and may be designed to track an index or to be actively managed. Unlike shares of a mutual fund, which all shareholders can buy or redeem directly from the issuing fund at a price based on net asset value (“NAV”), only Authorized Participants may buy and redeem shares of the Funds directly from the Funds at NAV. Also, unlike shares of a mutual fund, shares of the Funds are listed on a national securities exchange and trade in the secondary market at market prices that change throughout the day.
Shares of Hartford Disciplined US Equity ETF, Hartford Longevity Economy ETF, Hartford Multifactor Developed Markets (ex-US) ETF, Hartford Multifactor Emerging Markets ETF, Hartford Multifactor Small Cap ETF, and Hartford Multifactor US Equity ETF are listed for trading on NYSE Arca, Inc. (“NYSE Arca”) and shares of Hartford Multifactor Diversified International ETF are listed for trading on Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. (“Cboe BZX”). Shares of the Funds may be listed and trade on other secondary markets. The market price for each Fund’s shares may be different from that Fund’s NAV. Each Fund issues and redeems shares at NAV only in Creation Units, which only Authorized Participants may purchase or redeem directly with a Fund at NAV. These transactions are in exchange for securities and/or cash. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares of a Fund are not redeemable securities. Shareholders who are not Authorized Participants may not purchase or redeem shares directly from a Fund.
Each Fund is designed to track an index. Each share of a Fund represents a partial ownership in an underlying portfolio of securities intended to track a market index. Each Fund is designed to be used as part of broader asset allocation strategies. Accordingly, an investment in a Fund should not by itself constitute an entire investment program. This prospectus explains what you should know about the Funds before you invest. Please read it carefully. Investors should be aware that the investments made by the Funds and the results achieved by the Funds at any given time are not expected to be the same as those made by other funds for which Lattice or its affiliates act as investment adviser, or for which Mellon acts as sub-adviser, including funds with names, investment objectives and policies similar to the Funds. Certain affiliates of the Funds and Lattice may purchase and resell Fund shares pursuant to this prospectus.
Under continuous listing standards adopted by each Fund’s listing exchange, a Fund is required to confirm on an ongoing basis that the components of the Fund’s proprietary custom benchmark index satisfy the applicable listing requirements. In the event that a Fund’s proprietary custom benchmark index does not comply with the applicable listing requirements, that Fund is required to rectify such non-compliance by requesting that the Index Provider modify the index, adopting a new proprietary custom benchmark index, or obtaining relief from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Failure to rectify such non-compliance may result in a Fund being delisted by the listing exchange.
Additional information about the Funds, including Fund fact sheets, and information regarding each Fund’s net asset value, market price, bid-ask spreads and the number of days that the Fund’s shares traded on NYSE Arca or Cboe BZX at a price above (i.e., at a premium) or below (i.e., at a discount) the NAV of the Fund during the prior calendar year and subsequent quarters, when available, can be found at hartfordfunds.com.

Additional Information Regarding Investment Strategies and Risks
Information about each Fund’s investment objective and principal investment strategy is provided in the summary section of this prospectus. Additional information regarding the investment strategy and other investment policies for each of the Funds is provided below.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
In addition to the principal strategies set forth in the summary section of this prospectus, each Fund may use derivative investments, primarily futures and swap transactions, to manage portfolio risks and to maintain efficient portfolio management.
Each Fund invests in a particular segment of the securities markets and seeks to track the performance of a securities index that generally is not representative of the market as a whole. An index is a theoretical financial calculation while each Fund is an actual investment portfolio. The performance of each Fund and its respective index (each, an “Index”) may vary due to transaction costs, non-U.S. currency valuations, asset valuations, corporate actions (such as mergers and spin-offs), timing variances and differences between the Fund’s portfolio and the Index resulting from legal restrictions (such as diversification requirements) that apply to the Fund but not to the Index or to the use of representative sampling. “Tracking error” is the divergence of the performance (return) of the Fund’s portfolio from that of the Index. Each Fund intends to invest in its respective Index through “Replication,” which is an indexing strategy in which a fund invests in substantially all of the securities in its underlying index in approximately the same proportions as in the underlying index. Lattice uses a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. The Fund does not try to “beat” the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued.
As Fund cash flows permit, the Adviser may use cash flows to adjust the weights of a Fund’s underlying investments in an effort to minimize any differences in weights between the Fund and its underlying Index. Each Fund may lend securities in accordance with the Fund’s securities lending program and guidelines.

More Information About Risks
The principal and certain additional risks of investing in each Fund are described below. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money as a result of your investment. Many factors affect each Fund’s performance. An investment in a Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. There is no assurance that a Fund will achieve its investment objective, and you should not consider any one fund alone to be a complete investment program. The different types of securities, investments, and investment techniques used by each Fund have varying degrees of risk. The Funds’ combined statement of additional information (“SAI”) contains more detailed information about the Funds’ investment policies and risks.

AUTHORIZED PARTICIPANT CONCENTRATION RISK –  Only an authorized participant may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with a Fund. A Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as authorized participants, and none of these authorized participants are or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these intermediaries exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to a Fund and no other authorized participant is able to step forward to create or redeem, Fund shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
CASH TRANSACTIONS RISK –  A Fund may effect creations and redemptions partly or wholly for cash, rather than through in-kind distributions of securities. As a result, an investment in a Fund may be less tax-efficient than an investment in an ETF that effects creations and redemptions primarily or wholly in-kind. ETFs generally are able to make in-kind redemptions and thereby avoid being taxed on gains on the distributed portfolio securities at the Fund level. When a Fund effects redemptions partly or wholly for cash, rather than in-kind, it may be required to sell portfolio securities in order to obtain the cash needed to distribute redemption proceeds, which involves transaction costs. If a Fund realizes a gain on these sales, the Fund generally will be required to recognize a gain it might not otherwise have recognized, or to recognize such gain sooner than would otherwise be required if it were to distribute portfolio securities in-kind. A Fund generally distributes these gains to shareholders to avoid capital gains taxes at the Fund level and the need to otherwise comply with the special tax rules that apply to such gains. This strategy may cause shareholders to be subject to tax on gains to which they would not otherwise be subject, or at an earlier date than if they had made an investment in a different ETF. Moreover, cash transactions may have to be carried out over several days if the securities markets are relatively illiquid at the time the Fund must sell securities and may involve considerable brokerage fees and taxes. These brokerage fees and taxes, which will be higher than if a Fund sold and redeemed its shares principally in-kind, will be passed on to purchasers and redeemers of Creation Units in the form of creation and redemption transaction fees. As a result of these factors, the spreads between the bid and the offered prices of a Fund’s shares may be wider than those of shares of ETFs that primarily or wholly transact in-kind.
COUNTERPARTY RISK –  With respect to certain transactions, such as over-the-counter derivatives contracts or repurchase agreements, a Fund will be exposed to the risk that the counterparty to the transaction may be unable or unwilling to make timely principal, interest or settlement payments, or otherwise to honor its obligations. In the event of a bankruptcy or insolvency of a counterparty, a Fund could experience delays in liquidating its positions and significant losses, including declines in the value of its investment during the period in which the Fund seeks to enforce its rights, the inability to realize any gains on its investment during such period and any fees and expenses incurred in enforcing its rights. A Fund also bears the risk of loss of the amount expected to be received under a derivative transaction in the event of the default or bankruptcy of a counterparty. Over-the-counter derivatives may not offer a Fund the same level of protection as exchange traded derivatives.
CURRENCY RISK –  The risk that the value of a Fund’s investments in foreign securities or currencies will be affected by the value of the applicable currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When a Fund sells a foreign currency or foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the investment increases in value in its local market. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the revenue earned by issuers of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency. Currency markets generally are not as regulated as securities markets. The dollar value of foreign investments may be affected by exchange controls. A Fund may be positively or negatively affected by governmental strategies intended to make the U.S. dollar, or other currencies in which a Fund invests, stronger or weaker. Currency risk may be particularly high to the extent that a Fund invests in foreign securities or currencies that are economically tied to emerging market countries.
DEPOSITARY RECEIPTS RISK –  A Fund may invest in securities of foreign issuers in the form of depositary receipts or other securities that are convertible into securities of foreign issuers. American Depositary Receipts are receipts typically issued by an American bank or trust company that evidence underlying securities issued by a foreign corporation. European Depositary Receipts (issued in Europe) and Global Depositary Receipts (issued throughout the world) each evidence a similar ownership arrangement. A Fund may invest in Depositary Receipts that are not sponsored by a financial institution (“Unsponsored Depositary Receipts”). Depositary Receipts are generally subject to the same risks as the foreign securities that they evidence or into which they may be converted. The issuers of unsponsored Depositary Receipts are not obligated to disclose information that is, in the United States, considered material. Therefore, there may be less information available regarding their issuers and there may not be a correlation between such information and the market value of the Depositary Receipts. Certain Funds may also invest in Global Depositary Notes (“GDNs”), a form of depositary receipt. GDNs emulate the terms (interest rate, maturity date, credit quality, etc.) of particular local bonds; however, they trade, settle, and pay interest and principal in U.S. Dollars. Any
44

distributions paid to the holders of GDNs are usually subject to a fee charged by the depositary and holders of GDNs may have limited rights. Certain investment restrictions in certain countries may adversely impact the value of GDNs because such restrictions may limit the ability to convert bonds into GDNs and vice versa.
DERIVATIVES RISK –  A Fund may use derivatives for investment purposes and/or for hedging purposes, including anticipatory hedges. Derivatives are instruments whose value depends on, or is derived from, the value of an underlying asset, reference rate or index. Successful use of derivative instruments by a Fund depends on the Sub-Adviser’s judgment with respect to a number of factors and a Fund’s performance may be worse and/or more volatile than if it had not used these instruments. Derivatives may involve significant risks, including:
Counterparty/Credit Risk - the risk that the party on the other side of the transaction will be unable to honor its financial obligation to a Fund.
Currency Risk - the risk that changes in the exchange rate between currencies will adversely affect the value (in U.S. dollar terms) of an investment.
Leverage Risk - the risk associated with certain types of investments or trading strategies that relatively small market movements may result in large changes in the value of an investment. Certain investments or trading strategies that involve leverage can result in losses that greatly exceed the amount originally invested.
Market Risk - the risk from potential adverse market movements in relation to a Fund’s derivatives positions, or the risk that markets could experience a change in volatility that adversely impacts Fund returns and the Fund’s obligations and exposures.
Liquidity Risk - the risk that certain investments may be difficult or impossible to sell at the time that the seller would like or at the price that the seller believes the security is currently worth, which could expose a Fund to losses and could make derivatives more difficult for a Fund to value accurately, and the risk that a Fund may not be able to meet margin and payment requirements and maintain a derivatives position.
Index Risk - if the derivative is linked to the performance of an index, it will be subject to the risks associated with changes in that index. If the index changes, a Fund could receive lower interest payments or experience a reduction in the value of the derivative to below what a Fund paid. Certain indexed securities, including inverse securities (which move in an opposite direction to the index), may create leverage, to the extent that they increase or decrease in value at a rate that is a multiple of the changes in the applicable index. For this reason, a Fund’s investment in these instruments may decline significantly in value if index levels move in a way that is not anticipated.
Operational and Legal Risk - the risk that certain investments may involve risk of operational issues such as documentation issues, settlement issues, system failures, inadequate controls and human error, and the risk of insufficient capacity or authority of a derivatives counterparty and risk related to the legality or enforceability of a derivatives trading contract.
Regulatory Risk - Government legislation or regulation may make derivatives more costly, may limit the availability of derivatives, or may otherwise adversely affect the use, value or performance of derivatives.
Short Position Risk - A Fund may also take a short position in a derivative instrument, such as a future, forward or swap. A short position in a derivative instrument involves the risk of a theoretically unlimited increase in the value of the underlying instrument which could cause a Fund to suffer a (potentially unlimited) loss.
Tax Risk - the tax treatment of a derivative may not be as favorable as a direct investment in the underlying asset. The use of derivatives may adversely affect the timing, character and amount of income a Fund realizes from its investments, and could impair the ability of the Sub-Adviser to use derivatives when it wishes to do so.
If a Fund’s derivative investments represent a significant portion of its portfolio, the Fund’s exposure could far exceed the value of its portfolio securities and its investment performance could be primarily dependent upon securities it does not own.
FUTURES AND OPTIONS RISK –  An option is an agreement that, for a premium payment or fee, gives the purchaser the right but not the obligation to buy or sell the underlying asset at a specified price during a period of time or on a specified date, or receive a cash settlement payment. A future is a contract that obligates the purchaser to take delivery, and the seller to make delivery, of a specific amount of an asset at a specified future date at a specified price, or make a cash settlement payment. Futures and options are subject to the risk that the sub-adviser may incorrectly predict the direction of securities prices, interest rates, currency exchange rates and other economic factors that may affect the value of the underlying asset. Futures and options may be more volatile than direct investments in the securities underlying the futures and options and may not correlate perfectly to the underlying securities. Futures and options also involve additional expenses as compared to investing directly in the underlying securities, which could reduce any benefit or increase any loss to a Fund from using the strategy. Futures and options may also involve the use of leverage
45

as a Fund may make a small initial investment relative to the risk assumed, which could result in losses greater than if futures or options had not been used. Futures and options transactions may be effected on securities exchanges or, in the case of certain options, in the over-the-counter market. When options are purchased over-the-counter, a Fund bears the risk that the counterparty that wrote the option will be unable or unwilling to perform its obligations under the contract. Futures and options may also be illiquid, and in such cases, a Fund may have difficulty closing out its position or valuing the contract. Options on foreign currencies are affected by the factors that influence foreign exchange rates and investments generally. A Fund’s ability to establish and close out positions on foreign currency options is subject to the maintenance of a liquid secondary market, and there can be no assurance that a liquid secondary market will exist for a particular option at any specific time.
SWAPS RISK - Swap agreements are contracts entered into for a set period of time in which the parties agree to exchange payments based on some underlying reference asset (such as interest rates). The use of swaps is a highly specialized activity that involves investment techniques, risk analyses and tax planning different from those associated with ordinary portfolio securities transactions. These transactions can result in sizeable realized and unrealized capital gains and losses relative to the gains and losses from a Fund’s direct investments in the reference assets.
Transactions in swaps can involve greater risks than if a Fund had invested directly in the reference asset since, in addition to general market risks, swaps may be leveraged and are also subject to illiquidity risk, counterparty risk, credit risk, operational and legal risk and valuation risk. Because certain swaps are two-party contracts and because they may have terms of greater than seven days, certain swap transactions may be considered to be illiquid. Moreover, a Fund bears the risk of loss of the amount expected to be received under a swap in the event of the default or bankruptcy of a swap counterparty. Some swaps may be complex and difficult to value. Swaps may also be subject to pricing or “basis” risk, which exists when a particular swap becomes extraordinarily expensive relative to historical prices or the price of corresponding cash market instruments. Under certain market conditions it may not be economically feasible to initiate a transaction or liquidate a position in time to avoid a loss or take advantage of an opportunity. If a swap transaction is particularly large or if the relevant market is illiquid, it may not be possible to initiate a transaction or liquidate a position at an advantageous time or price, which may result in significant losses.
The prices of swaps can be very volatile, and a variance in the degree of volatility or in the direction of the price of the reference asset from the sub-adviser’s expectations may produce significant losses in a Fund’s investments in swaps. In addition, a perfect correlation between a swap and an investment position may be impossible to achieve. As a result, a Fund’s use of swaps may not be effective in fulfilling a Fund’s investment strategies and may contribute to losses that would not have been incurred otherwise.
Certain swaps are centrally-cleared and are exchange-traded. Central clearing tends to decrease credit risk, and exchange trading is expected to improve liquidity. However, central clearing does not make the contracts risk-free and there is no guarantee that a Fund would consider all exchange-traded swaps to be liquid.
HEDGING RISK –  Hedging is a strategy in which a Fund uses a derivative to offset the risks associated with other Fund holdings. While hedging can reduce losses, it can also reduce or eliminate gains or cause losses if the market moves in a manner different from that anticipated by a Fund or if the cost of the derivative outweighs the benefit of the hedge. Hedging also involves the risk that changes in the value of the derivative will not match those of the holdings being hedged as expected by a Fund, in which case any losses on the holdings being hedged may not be reduced and may be increased. There can be no assurance that a Fund’s hedging strategy will reduce risk or that hedging transactions will be either available or cost effective. A Fund is not required to use hedging and may choose not to do so.
EQUITY RISK –  Equity securities represent an ownership interest, or the right to acquire an ownership interest, in a company. Equity securities include but are not limited to common stock, preferred stock, securities convertible into common or preferred stock and warrants or rights to acquire common stock, including options. The value of an equity security may be based on the real or perceived success or failure of the particular company’s business, any income paid to stockholders in the form of a dividend, the value of the company’s assets, general market conditions, or investor sentiment generally. Equity securities may have greater price volatility than other types of investments. These risks are generally magnified in the case of equity investments in distressed companies.
EXCHANGE-TRADED FUNDS RISK –  An investment in an ETF generally presents the same primary risks as an investment in a fund that is not exchange-traded that has the same investment objectives, strategies and policies as the ETF. ETF investments are also subject to the risk that the ETF may fail to accurately track the market segment or index that underlies its investment objective; the risk that, to the extent the ETF does not fully replicate the underlying index, the ETF’s investment strategy may not produce the intended results; the risk of more frequent price fluctuations due to secondary market trading, which may result in a loss to a Fund; the risk that the ETF may trade at a price that is lower than its NAV; and the risk that an active market for the ETF’s shares may not develop or be maintained. ETFs are also
46

subject to specific risks depending on the nature of the ETF, such as liquidity risk, sector risk, and foreign and emerging markets risk, as well as risks associated with fixed income securities, real estate investments and commodities. An investment in an ETF presents the risk that the ETF may no longer meet the listing requirements of any applicable exchanges on which the ETF is listed. A Fund will indirectly pay a proportional share of the asset-based fees of the ETFs in which a Fund invests. In addition, a Fund pays brokerage commissions in connection with the purchase and sale of shares of ETFs.
EXCHANGE-TRADED NOTES RISK –  Exchange-traded notes (“ETNs”) are a type of unsecured, unsubordinated debt security that have characteristics and risks, including credit risk, similar to those of fixed-income securities, and trade on a major exchange similar to shares of ETFs. Unlike other types of fixed income securities, however, the performance of ETNs is based upon that of a market index or other reference asset minus fees and expenses, no coupon payments are made and no principal protection exists. The value of an ETN may be affected by time to maturity, level of supply and demand for the ETN, volatility and lack of liquidity in underlying commodities or securities markets, changes in the applicable interest rates, changes in the issuer’s credit rating and economic, legal, political or geographic events that affect the referenced commodity or security. A Fund’s ability to sell its ETN holdings also may be limited by the availability of a secondary market and the Fund may have to sell such holdings at a discount. ETNs also are subject to counterparty credit risk, fixed-income risk and tracking error risk (where the ETN’s performance may not match or correlate to that of its market index). ETNs also incur certain expenses not incurred by their applicable index.
FOREIGN INVESTMENTS RISK –  Investments in foreign securities may be riskier than investments in U.S. securities and may also be less liquid, more volatile and more difficult to value than securities of U.S. issuers. Foreign investments may be affected by the following:
changes in currency exchange rates
changes in foreign or U.S. law or restrictions applicable to such investments and in exchange control regulations
increased volatility
substantially less volume on foreign stock markets and other securities markets
higher commissions and dealer mark-ups
inefficiencies in certain foreign clearance and settlement procedures that could result in an inability to execute transactions or delays in settlement
less uniform accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards
less publicly available information about a foreign issuer or borrower
less government regulation and oversight
unfavorable foreign tax laws
political, social, economic or diplomatic developments in a foreign country or region or the U.S. (including the imposition of sanctions, tariffs, or other governmental restrictions)
differences in individual foreign economies
geopolitical events (including wars, military conflicts, pandemics and epidemics) that may disrupt securities markets and adversely affect global economies and markets
The type and severity of sanctions and other similar measures, including counter sanctions and other retaliatory actions, that may be imposed on one or more countries in which a Fund may invest could vary broadly in scope, and their impact is impossible to predict. These types of measures may include, but are not limited to, banning a sanctioned country from global payment systems that facilitate cross-border payments, restricting the settlement of securities transactions by certain investors, and freezing the assets of particular countries, entities, or persons. The imposition of sanctions and other similar measures could, among other things, cause a decline in the value and/or liquidity of securities issued by the sanctioned country or companies located in or economically tied to the sanctioned country, downgrades in the credit ratings of the sanctioned country or companies located in or economically tied to the sanctioned country, devaluation of the sanctioned country’s currency, and increased market volatility and disruption in the sanctioned country and throughout the world. Sanctions and other similar measures could limit or prevent a Fund from buying and selling securities (in the sanctioned country and other markets), significantly delay or prevent the settlement of securities transactions, and significantly impact a Fund’s liquidity and performance.
Governments in many emerging market countries participate to a significant degree in their economies and securities markets, which may impair investment and economic growth. In addition, global economies and financial markets are becoming increasingly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely impact issuers in a different country or region.

EMERGING MARKETS RISK –  The risks of foreign investments are usually greater for emerging markets. Investments in emerging markets may be considered speculative. Emerging markets are riskier than more developed markets because they tend to develop unevenly and may never fully develop. They are more likely to experience hyperinflation and currency devaluations, which adversely affect returns to U.S. investors. In addition, many emerging markets have far lower trading volumes and less liquidity than developed markets. Since these markets are often small, they may be more likely to suffer sharp and frequent price changes or long-term price depression because of adverse publicity, investor perceptions or the actions of a few large investors. Emerging market trading hours, clearance and settlement procedures, and holiday schedules may limit the Fund’s ability to buy and sell securities in emerging markets. In addition, traditional measures of investment value used in the United States, such as price to earnings ratios, may not apply to certain small markets. Also, there may be less publicly available information about issuers in emerging markets than would be available about issuers in more developed capital markets, and such issuers may not be subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards and requirements comparable to those to which U.S. companies are subject. Many emerging markets have histories of political instability and abrupt changes in policies. As a result, their governments are more likely to take actions that are hostile or detrimental to private enterprise or foreign investment than those of more developed countries, including expropriation of assets, confiscatory taxation, high rates of inflation or unfavorable diplomatic developments. In such an event, it is possible that a Fund could lose the entire value of its investments in the affected market. Some countries have pervasive corruption and crime that may hinder investments. Certain emerging markets may also face other significant internal or external risks, including the risk of war (such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the conflict between Israel and Hamas), and ethnic, religious and racial conflicts. In addition, governments in many emerging market countries participate to a significant degree in their economies and securities markets, which may impair investment and economic growth. Emerging markets may also have differing legal systems and the existence or possible imposition of exchange controls, custodial restrictions or other foreign or U.S. governmental laws or restrictions applicable to such investments. Settlements of trades in emerging markets may be subject to significant delays. The inability to make intended purchases of securities due to settlement problems could cause missed investment opportunities. Losses could also be caused by an inability to dispose of portfolio securities due to settlement problems. Sometimes, emerging markets may lack or be in the relatively early development of legal structures governing private and foreign investments and private property, and the ability of U.S. authorities (e.g., SEC and the U.S. Department of Justice) and investors (e.g., the Funds) to bring actions against bad actors may be limited. As a result of these legal structures and limitations, a Fund faces the risk of being unable to enforce its rights with respect to its investments in emerging markets, which may cause losses to the Fund. In addition to withholding taxes on investment income, some countries with emerging markets may impose differential capital gains taxes on foreign investors.
In addition, as much of China’s growth over recent decades has been a result of significant investment in substantial export trade, international trade tensions may arise from time to time, which could result in trade tariffs, embargoes, trade limitations, trade wars and other negative consequences. These consequences may trigger a significant reduction in international trade, the oversupply of certain manufactured goods, substantial price reductions of goods and possible failure of individual companies and/or large segments of China’s export industry with a potentially severe negative impact to a Fund. In addition, it is possible that the continuation or worsening of the current political climate could result in regulatory restrictions being contemplated or imposed in the U.S. or in China that could have a material adverse effect on a Fund’s ability to invest in accordance with its investment policies and/or achieve its investment objective.
The risks outlined above are often more pronounced in “frontier markets” in which a Fund may invest. Frontier markets are those emerging markets that are considered to be among the smallest, least mature and least liquid. These factors make investing in frontier market countries significantly riskier than investing in other countries.
ILLIQUID INVESTMENTS RISK –  An illiquid investment means an investment that a Fund reasonably expects cannot be sold or disposed of in current market conditions within seven calendar days without the sale or disposition significantly changing the market value of the investment, as determined under the Fund’s liquidity risk management program. In addition, securities and other investments purchased by a Fund that are liquid at the time of purchase may subsequently become illiquid due to events relating to the issuer of the securities, market events, rising interest rates, economic conditions or investor perceptions. If a Fund holds illiquid investments, it may be unable to quickly sell them or may be able to sell them only at a price below current value. If one or more of a Fund’s investments becomes illiquid, the Fund may exceed its limit on such investments. In this case, the Fund will consider appropriate steps to bring the Fund’s holdings back under the limit.
48

INDEX TRACKING RISK –  There is a risk that the performance of each Fund may diverge from performance of its respective Index as a result of tracking error. Tracking error may occur because of differences between the securities held in a Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. Tracking error may also occur because of pricing differences, transaction costs, a Fund holding uninvested cash, differences in the timing of the accrual of dividends, changes to the Index or the costs of complying with various new or existing regulatory requirements. Additionally, tracking error may result because a Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
INDEX RELATED RISK –  Each Fund seeks to achieve a return that corresponds generally to the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of its respective Index as published by Lattice. There is no assurance that Lattice will compile the Index accurately, or that the Index will be determined, composed or calculated accurately. While Lattice does provide descriptions of what each Index is designed to achieve, Lattice does not provide any warranty or accept any liability in relation to the quality, accuracy or completeness of data in respect of the indices it publishes, and does not guarantee that any such index will be in line with Lattice’s described index methodology. Lattice’s mandate, as described in this prospectus, is to manage each Fund consistently with its respective Index.
Errors in respect of the quality, accuracy and completeness of the data may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for a period of time or at all, particularly where an index is less commonly used. Therefore, gains, losses or costs associated with an index’s errors will generally be borne by a Fund and its shareholders. For example, during a period where a Fund’s Index contains incorrect constituents, the Fund would have market exposure to such constituents and would be underexposed to the Index’s other constituents. As such, errors may result in a negative or positive performance impact to a Fund and its shareholders. Shareholders should understand that any gains from index errors will be kept by the Fund and its shareholders and any losses will be borne by the Fund and its shareholders.
Apart from scheduled rebalances, Lattice may carry out additional ad hoc rebalances to each of its indices in order, for example, to correct an error in the selection of index constituents. Where a Fund’s Index is rebalanced and the Fund in turn rebalances its portfolio to bring it in line with its Index, any transaction costs and market exposure arising from such portfolio rebalancing will be borne directly by the Fund and its shareholders. Errors and unscheduled rebalances to an Index may also expose a Fund to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its returns may not track exactly those of the Fund’s index. Therefore, errors and additional ad hoc rebalances carried out by Lattice with respect to an Index may increase the costs and market exposure risk of a Fund. Unusual market conditions may cause Lattice to postpone scheduled rebalance, which could cause the Index to vary from its normal or expected composition. The modification, postponement, or cancellation of a scheduled rebalance could mean that Index constituents that would otherwise be removed at a rebalance due to changes in market capitalizations, issuer credit ratings, or other reasons in accordance with the Index’s methodology may remain in a Fund’s Index and the Fund, causing the performance and constituents of the Index and a Fund to vary from those expected under normal conditions.
INDUSTRY CONCENTRATION RISK –  Although a Fund generally will not invest 25% or more of the value of a Fund’s total assets in the securities of one or more issuers conducting their principal business activities in the same industry or group of industries, to the extent that a Fund’s Index is concentrated in a particular industry, a Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same degree as its Index. If a Fund focuses its investments in a specific industry or group of industries, the Fund is subject to the risk that (1) its performance will be closely tied to the performance of those particular industries; (2) its performance will be adversely impacted when such industries experience a downturn; and (3) it will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. As a result, a Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse developments in an industry than a fund that does not focus its investments in any industry.
LARGE CAP SECURITIES RISK –  The securities of large market capitalization companies may underperform other segments of the market because such companies may be less responsive to competitive challenges and opportunities and may be unable to attain high growth rates during periods of economic expansion.
LARGE SHAREHOLDER TRANSACTION RISK –  Certain shareholders, including funds advised by Lattice or an affiliate, may from time to time own a substantial amount of a Fund’s shares. A third-party investor, Lattice or an affiliate of Lattice, an authorized participant, a lead market maker, or another entity may invest in a Fund and hold its investment for a limited period of time solely to facilitate commencement of the Fund or to facilitate the Fund’s achieving a specified size or scale. There can be no assurance that any large shareholder would not redeem its investment, that the size of the Fund would be maintained at such levels or that the Fund would continue to meet applicable listing requirements. In addition, transactions by large shareholders may account for a large percentage of the trading volume on a Fund’s listing exchange and may, therefore, have a material upward or downward effect on the market price of the Fund’s shares.
49

LIQUIDITY RISK –  Liquidity risk exists when the markets for particular investments or types of investments are or become relatively illiquid so that it is difficult or impossible for a Fund to sell the investment at the price at which the Fund has valued it. Illiquidity may result from political, economic or issuer specific events; changes in a specific market’s size or structure, including the number of participants; or overall market disruptions. Securities with reduced liquidity or that become illiquid involve greater risk than securities with more liquid markets. If a Fund and its affiliates hold a significant portion of a single issuer’s outstanding securities, the Fund may be subject to greater liquidity risk than if the issuer’s securities were more widely held.
Market quotations for illiquid or less liquid securities may be volatile and/or subject to large spreads between bid and ask prices. Reduced liquidity may have a negative impact on market price and a Fund’s ability to sell particular securities when necessary to meet the Fund’s liquidity needs or in response to a specific economic event. In addition, during periods of reduced market liquidity or in the absence of readily available market quotations for particular investments in a Fund’s portfolio, it may be difficult for the Fund to value these investments and it may be necessary to fair value the investments. Illiquidity can be caused by a drop in overall market trading volume, an inability to find a willing buyer, or legal restrictions on the securities’ resale. In addition, during certain periods, the liquidity of particular issuers or industries in which a Fund may invest, or all securities within a particular investment category in which a Fund may invest, may shrink or disappear suddenly and without warning as a result of adverse economic, market or political events (including periods of rapid interest rate changes), or adverse investor perceptions whether or not accurate. There can be no assurance that a security’s fair value accurately reflects the price at which a Fund could sell that security at that time, which could affect the proceeds of any sale or the number of Fund shares you receive upon purchase.
Bond markets have consistently grown over the past three decades while the capacity for traditional dealer counterparties to engage in fixed income trading has not kept pace and in some cases has decreased. As a result, dealer inventories of corporate bonds are at or near historic lows in relation to market size. The significant reduction in dealer inventories could potentially lead to decreased liquidity and increased volatility in the fixed income markets. Such issues may be worse during periods of economic uncertainty.
LONGEVITY ECONOMY INVESTMENT FOCUS RISK –  The Fund’s focus on securities of issuers that are expected to benefit from providing goods and services that are needed by or attractive to the aging populations may affect the Fund’s exposure to certain industries or types of investments. The Fund’s relative investment performance may also be affected depending on whether such industries or investments are in or out of favor with the market. Certain investments may be dependent on U.S. and foreign government policies, including tax incentives and subsidies and developments affecting companies focused on longevity and aging solutions generally. In addition, under certain market conditions, the Fund may underperform funds that invest in a broader array of investments.
MARKET PRICE RISK –  The NAV of a Fund’s shares and the value of your investment may fluctuate. The market prices of a Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV, and changes in the intraday value of a Fund’s holdings, as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on a Fund’s listing exchange. Although it is expected that a Fund’s shares will remain listed on an exchange, disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the shares trading significantly above (at a premium to) or below (at a discount to) a Fund’s NAV or the intraday value of a Fund’s holdings. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of a Fund. Neither the investment adviser nor a Fund’s sub-adviser can predict whether a Fund’s shares will trade below, at or above their NAV. Price differences may be due, in large part, to the fact that supply and demand forces at work in the secondary trading market for a Fund’s shares will be closely related to, but not identical to, the same forces influencing the prices of a Fund’s portfolio holdings trading individually or in the aggregate at any point in time. Authorized Participants may be less willing to create or redeem Fund shares if there is a lack of an active market for such shares or a Fund’s underlying investments, which may contribute to the Fund’s shares trading at a premium or discount to NAV. There can be no assurance as to whether and/or to what extent a Fund’s shares will trade at premiums or discounts to NAV or to the intraday value of a Fund’s holdings.
MARKET RISK –  Market risk is the risk that one or more markets in which a Fund invests will go down in value, including the possibility that the markets will go down sharply and unpredictably. Securities or other investments may decline in value due to factors affecting securities markets generally or individual issuers. The value of a security or other investment may change in value due to general market conditions that are not related to a particular issuer, such as real or perceived adverse economic conditions, changes in the general outlook for revenues or corporate earnings, changes in interest, or currency rates or adverse investor sentiment generally as well as global trade policies and
50

political unrest or uncertainties. The value of a security or other investment may also change in value due to factors that affect an individual issuer, including data breaches and cybersecurity attacks, or a particular sector or industry. During a general downturn in the securities or other markets, multiple asset classes may decline in value simultaneously. When markets perform well, there can be no assurance that securities or other investments held by a Fund will participate in or otherwise benefit from the advance. Any market disruptions, including those arising out of geopolitical events (including wars, military conflicts, pandemics and epidemics) or natural/environmental disasters, could also prevent a Fund from executing advantageous investment decisions in a timely manner. The adverse impact of any one or more of these events on the market value of Fund investments could be significant and cause losses. A widespread health crisis, such as a global pandemic, could cause substantial market volatility, exchange trading suspensions or restrictions and closures of securities exchanges and businesses, impact the ability to complete redemptions, and adversely impact Fund performance. The outbreak of COVID-19, a respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus, negatively affected the worldwide economy, created supply chain disruptions and labor shortages, and impacted the financial health of individual companies and the market in significant and unforeseen ways. The future impact of COVID-19 is currently unknown. The effects to public health, business and market conditions resulting from COVID-19 pandemic have had, and may continue to have, a significant negative impact on the performance of a Fund’s investments, including exacerbating other pre-existing political, social and economic risks.
MID CAP SECURITIES RISK –  Mid capitalization stocks involve greater risks than stocks of larger, more established companies and may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements. Securities of such issuers may lack sufficient market liquidity to enable a Fund to effect sales at an advantageous time or without a substantial drop in price. These companies often have narrower markets, more limited operating or business history, and more limited managerial or financial resources than larger, more established companies. As a result, their performance can be more volatile and they face greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of a Fund’s portfolio. Generally, the smaller the company size, the greater these risks.
NEW FUND RISK –  A Fund with a limited operating history may be subject to additional risks. There can be no assurance that a Fund will grow to an economically viable size, in which case a Fund may cease operations. In such an event, investors may be required to liquidate or transfer their investments at an inopportune time.
NO GUARANTEE OF ACTIVE TRADING MARKET RISK –  While Fund shares are listed on an exchange, there can be no assurance that active trading markets for shares will be maintained by market makers or authorized participants. Decisions by market makers or authorized participants to reduce their role or “step away” from these activities in times of market stress may inhibit the effectiveness of the arbitrage process in maintaining the relationship between the underlying value of a Fund’s holdings and a Fund’s NAV. Such reduced effectiveness could result in a Fund’s shares trading at a discount to its NAV and also in greater than normal intraday bid/ask spreads for a Fund’s shares.
OTHER INVESTMENT COMPANIES RISK –  Investments in securities of other investment companies, including ETFs, are generally subject to limitations prescribed by the 1940 Act and its rules, and applicable SEC staff interpretations or applicable exemptive relief granted by the SEC. Such investments subject a Fund to the risks that apply to the other investment company, including market and selection risk, and may increase a Fund’s expenses to the extent a Fund pays fees, including investment advisory and administrative fees, charged by the other investment company. The success of a Fund’s investment in these securities is directly related, in part, to the ability of the other investment companies, including ETFs, to meet their investment objective.
A business development company (“BDC”), which is a type of closed-end fund, typically invests in small and medium-sized companies. A BDC’s portfolio is subject to the risks inherent in investing in smaller companies, including that portfolio companies may be dependent on a small number of products or services and may be more adversely affected by poor economic or market conditions. Some BDCs invest substantially, or even exclusively, in one sector or industry group and therefore the BDC may be susceptible to adverse conditions and economic or regulatory occurrences affecting the sector or industry group, which tends to increase volatility and result in higher risk. The Small Business Credit Availability Act permits BDCs to adopt a lower asset coverage ratio, thereby enhancing their ability to use leverage. Investments in BDCs that use greater leverage may be subject to heightened risks.
PASSIVE STRATEGY/INDEX RISK –  The Funds are not actively managed and may be affected by a general decline in market segments related to their respective Index. Each Fund invests in securities included, in, or representative of, the Index, regardless of their investment merits. Additionally, the Funds generally do not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Passive strategy/index risks may be greater for Funds tracking Indexes that include securities of emerging market issuers.
51

REGIONAL/COUNTRY FOCUS RISK –  To the extent that a Fund focuses its investments in a particular geographic region or country, the Fund may be subject to increased currency, political, social, environmental, regulatory and other risks not typically associated with investing in a larger number of regions or countries. In addition, certain foreign economies may themselves be focused in particular industries or more vulnerable to political changes than the U.S. economy, which may have a pronounced impact on the Fund’s investments. As a result, such Fund may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments. Regional and country focus risk is heightened in emerging markets.
The following sets forth additional information regarding risks associated with investing in certain regions/countries:
Investments in Asian Securities –  Certain Asian economies have experienced high inflation, high unemployment, currency devaluations and restrictions, and over-extension of credit. Many Asian economies have experienced rapid growth and industrialization, and there is no assurance that this growth rate will be maintained. During the global recession that began in 2009, many of the export-driven Asian economies experienced the effects of the economic slowdown in the United States and Europe, and certain Asian governments implemented stimulus plans, low-rate monetary policies and currency devaluations. Economic events in any one Asian country may have a significant economic effect on the entire Asian region, as well as on major trading partners outside Asia. Any adverse event in the Asian markets may have a significant adverse effect on some or all of the economies of the countries in which a Fund invests. Many Asian countries are subject to political risk, including corruption and regional conflict with neighboring countries. In addition, many Asian countries are subject to social and labor risks associated with demands for improved political, economic and social conditions.
Investments in Central and South America –  The economies of certain Central and South American countries are generally considered emerging markets and are generally characterized by high interest rates, economic volatility, inflation, currency devaluations, government defaults and high unemployment rates. Currency devaluations in any one Latin American country can have a significant effect on the entire Latin American region. In addition, commodities (such as oil, gas and minerals) represent a significant percentage of exports for these regions and many economies in these regions are particularly sensitive to fluctuations in commodity prices. A relatively small number of Latin American companies represents a large portion of Latin America’s total market and thus may be more sensitive to adverse political or economic circumstances and market movements. Adverse economic events in one country may have a significant adverse effect on other countries in these regions.
Investments in Europe –  The Economic and Monetary Union of the EU requires compliance with restrictions on inflation rates, deficits, interest rates, debt levels and fiscal and monetary controls, each of which may significantly affect every country in Europe. Decreasing imports or exports, changes in governmental or EU regulations on trade, changes in the exchange rate of the euro (the common currency of certain EU countries), the default or threat of default by an EU member country on its sovereign debt, and/or an economic recession in an EU member country may have a significant adverse effect on the economies of EU member countries and their trading partners. The European financial markets have experienced volatility and adverse trends due to concerns about economic downturns or rising government debt levels in several European countries. These events have adversely affected the exchange rate of the euro and may continue to significantly affect every country in Europe, including countries that do not use the euro. Responses to the financial problems by European governments, central banks and others, including austerity measures and reforms, may not produce the desired results, may result in social unrest and may limit future growth and economic recovery or have other unintended consequences. Further defaults or restructurings by governments and other entities of their debt could have additional adverse effects on economies, financial markets and asset valuations around the world. Uncertainty relating to the United Kingdom’s post-departure framework and relationships from the EU may have adverse effects on asset valuations and the renegotiation of trade agreements, as well as an increase in financial regulation in such markets. This may adversely impact Fund performance.
RESTRICTED SECURITIES RISK –  Restricted securities are securities that cannot be offered for public resale unless registered under the applicable securities laws or that have a contractual restriction that prohibits or limits their resale. Restricted securities include private placement securities that have not been registered under the applicable securities laws, such as Rule 144A securities, and securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers that are issued pursuant to Regulation S. Restricted securities may not be listed on an exchange and may have no active trading market. Restricted securities may be illiquid. A Fund may be unable to sell them on short notice or may be able to sell them only at a price below current value. Also, a Fund may get only limited information about the issuer of a restricted security, so it may be less able to predict a loss. In addition, if Fund management receives material non-public information about the issuer, a Fund may as a result be unable to sell the securities. Certain restricted securities may involve a high degree of business and financial risk and may result in substantial losses. Please see “Rule 144A Securities and Regulation S Securities Risk” below.
52

Rule 144A Securities and Regulation S Securities Risk - “Rule 144A” securities are privately placed, restricted securities that may only be resold under certain circumstances to other qualified institutional buyers. Rule 144A investments are subject to certain additional risks compared to publicly traded securities. If there are not enough qualified buyers interested in purchasing Rule 144A securities when a Fund wishes to sell such securities, the Fund may be unable to dispose of such securities promptly or at reasonable prices. For this reason, although Rule 144A securities are generally considered to be liquid, a Fund’s holdings in Rule 144A securities may adversely affect the Fund’s overall liquidity if qualified buyers become uninterested in buying them at a particular time. Issuers of Rule 144A securities are required to furnish information to potential investors upon request. However, the required disclosure is much less extensive than that required of public companies and is not publicly available. Further, issuers of Rule 144A securities can require recipients of the information (such as the Fund) to agree contractually to keep the information confidential, which could also adversely affect a Fund’s ability to dispose of a security. Offerings of Regulation S securities may be conducted outside of the United States. Regulation S securities are generally less liquid than registered securities, as a result, a Fund may take longer to liquidate these positions than would be the case for publicly traded securities. Although Regulation S securities may be resold in privately negotiated transactions, the price realized from these sales could be less than those originally paid by a Fund. Further, companies whose securities are not publicly traded may not be subject to the disclosure and other investor protection requirements that would be applicable if their securities were publicly traded. Accordingly, Regulation S securities may involve a high degree of business and financial risk and may result in substantial losses.
SECONDARY TRADING MARKET ISSUES –  Trading in shares on a listing exchange may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable. In addition, trading in shares on an exchange is subject to the risk of trading halts caused by extraordinary market volatility pursuant to the specific exchange’s “circuit breaker” rules. If a trading halt or unanticipated early closing of the listing exchange occurs, a shareholder may be unable to purchase or sell shares of a Fund. There also can be no assurance that the requirements of the exchange necessary to maintain the listing of a Fund will continue to be met or will remain unchanged.
While the creation/redemption feature is designed to make it likely that shares normally will trade close to a Fund’s NAV, market prices are not expected to correlate exactly to a Fund’s NAV due to timing reasons, supply and demand imbalances and other factors. In addition, disruptions to creations and redemptions, adverse developments impacting market makers, authorized participants or other market participants, high market volatility or lack of an active trading market for the shares (including through a trading halt) may result in market prices for shares of a Fund that differ significantly from its NAV or to the intra-day value of a Fund’s holdings. If an investor purchases shares at a time when the market price is at a premium to the NAV of the shares or sells at a time when the market price is at a discount to the NAV of the shares, then the investor may sustain losses.
Given the nature of the relevant markets for certain of the securities held by a Fund, shares may trade at a larger premium or discount to NAV than shares of other kinds of ETFs. In addition, the securities held by a Fund may be traded in markets that close at a different time from a Fund’s listing exchange. Liquidity in those securities may be reduced after the applicable closing times. Accordingly, during the time when the listing exchange is open but after the applicable market closing, fixing or settlement times, bid/ask spreads and the resulting premium or discount to the shares’ NAV may widen.
When you buy or sell shares of a Fund through a broker, you will likely incur a brokerage commission or other charges imposed by that broker. In addition, the market price of Fund shares, like the price of any exchange-traded security, includes a “bid-ask spread” charged by the market makers or other participants that trade the particular security. The spread of a Fund’s shares varies over time based on a Fund’s trading volume and market liquidity and may increase if a Fund’s trading volume, the spread of a Fund’s underlying securities, or market liquidity decrease. In times of severe market disruption, including when trading of a Fund’s holdings may be halted, the bid-ask spread on a Fund’s shares may increase significantly. This means that Fund shares may trade at a discount to a Fund’s NAV, and the discount is likely to be greatest during periods of significant market volatility.
Shares of a Fund, similar to shares of other issuers listed on a stock exchange, may be sold short and are, therefore, subject to the risk of increased volatility and price decreases associated with being sold short.
SECURITIES LENDING RISK –  Securities lending involves the risk that a Fund may lose money because the borrower of the securities the Fund has loaned out fails to return the securities in a timely manner or at all. A Fund could also lose money in the event of a decline in the value of the collateral provided for loaned securities or a decline in the value of any investments made with cash collateral. These events could also trigger adverse tax consequences for a Fund. Securities lending also involves exposure to certain additional risks, including operational risk (i.e., the risk of losses resulting from problems in the settlement and accounting process –  especially so in certain international markets),
53

“gap” risk (i.e., the risk of a mismatch between the return on cash collateral reinvestments and the fees a Fund has agreed to pay a borrower), risk of loss of collateral, credit, legal, counterparty and market risk. Although a Fund’s securities lending agent has agreed to provide a Fund with indemnification in the event of a borrower default, a Fund is still exposed to the risk of losses in the event a borrower does not return a Fund’s securities as agreed and the agent fails to indemnify a Fund.
SMALL CAP SECURITIES RISK –  Small capitalization stocks may be more risky than stocks of larger capitalization companies. Historically, small capitalization stocks and stocks of recently organized companies are subject to increased price volatility due to: less certain growth prospects; lower degree of liquidity in the markets for such stocks; thin trading that could result in the stocks being sold at a discount or in small lots over an extended period of time; limited product lines, markets or financial resources; dependence on a few key management personnel; increased sensitivity to changes in interest rates, borrowing costs and earnings; difficulty in obtaining information on smaller capitalization companies as compared with larger capitalization companies; greater sensitivity to changing economic conditions and increased risk of bankruptcy due to adverse developments or management changes affecting the company; and greater difficulty borrowing money to continue or expand operations.
When a Fund invests in smaller company stocks that might trade infrequently, investors might seek to trade Fund shares based on their knowledge or understanding of the value of those securities (this is sometimes referred to as “price arbitrage”). If such price arbitrage were successful, it might interfere with the efficient management of a Fund’s portfolio and the Fund may be required to sell securities at disadvantageous times or prices to satisfy the liquidity requirements created by that activity. Successful price arbitrage might also dilute the value of Fund shares held by other shareholders.
USE AS AN UNDERLYING FUND RISK –  A Fund may be an investment (an “Underlying Fund”) of one or more fund of funds. The term “fund of funds” refers to a fund that pursues its investment objective by investing primarily in other funds. As a result, a Fund may be subject to the following risks:
A Fund, as an Underlying Fund, may experience relatively large redemptions or investments as a fund of funds periodically reallocates or rebalances its assets. These transactions, to the extent they are effected on a cash basis, may cause a Fund to sell securities to meet such redemptions, or to invest in cash, at times it would not otherwise do so, and may as a result increase transaction costs and adversely affect Fund performance.
Such transactions could increase or decrease the frequency of capital gain recognition by a Fund and could affect the timing, amount and character of distributions you receive from a Fund.
VALUATION RISK –  The risk that the sale price a Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. In addition, the value of the securities in a Fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell the Fund’s shares. In addition, a Fund may rely on various third-party sources to calculate its net asset value. As a result, a Fund is subject to certain operational risks associated with reliance on service providers and service providers’ data sources. In particular, errors or system failures and other technological issues may adversely impact a Fund’s calculation of its net asset value, and such net asset value calculation issues may result in inaccurately calculated net asset values, delays in net asset value calculation, and/or the inability to calculate net asset value over extended periods. A Fund may be unable to recover any losses associated with such failures.
VOLATILITY RISK –  The value of a Fund’s investments may fluctuate over a relatively short period of time. These fluctuations may cause a Fund’s net asset value per share to experience significant changes over similarly short periods of time.
WARRANTS RISK –  Warrants give a Fund the right to purchase equity securities (“underlying stock”) at specific prices valid for a specific period of time. If the price of the underlying stock does not rise above the exercise price before the warrant expires, the warrant generally expires without any value and a Fund loses any amount it paid for the warrant. Thus, investments in warrants may involve substantially more risk than investments in common stock. Warrants may trade in the same markets as their underlying stock; however, the price of the warrant does not necessarily move with the price of the underlying stock and can be more volatile than the prices of the underlying stocks. The market for warrants may be limited and it may be difficult for a Fund to sell a warrant promptly at an advantageous price.
TRANSACTIONS IN FUND SHARES BY THE ADVISER AND ITS AFFILIATES
Lattice and its affiliates may purchase and sell Fund shares in secondary market transactions on behalf of their own accounts or the accounts of their advisory clients. Such investments and transactions in Fund shares may be substantial in comparison to the investments and transactions in Fund shares by non-affiliated investors. In particular, Hartford Funds Management Company, LLC (“HFMC”), an affiliate of Lattice, is the investment manager to a group of
54

asset allocation funds (each an “Asset Allocation Fund” and, collectively, the “Asset Allocation Funds”), each of which operates as a fund-of-funds and invests substantially all of its assets in underlying funds for which HFMC or Lattice serves as the investment manager, including the Funds. The Asset Allocation Funds may currently and from time to time hold (or beneficially own) a substantial percentage of a Fund’s outstanding shares. To the extent that an Asset Allocation Fund owns more than 25% of a Fund’s shares, the Asset Allocation Fund will be deemed to hold a controlling interest in the Fund. Such controlling interest may create a conflict of interest for Lattice and HFMC in managing the Fund and the Asset Allocation Funds, respectively. To address the potential conflicts of interest that may arise from managing the Funds and other accounts, including the Asset Allocation Funds, Lattice and HFMC have adopted policies and procedures that are designed to identify and mitigate the risks associated with these potential conflicts of interests. For example, HFMC or an Asset Allocation Fund generally will vote Fund shares that it beneficially owns in the same proportion as the votes of other non-affiliated beneficial owners of the same Fund. In addition, HFMC and its affiliates, including the Asset Allocation Funds, may from time to time be substantially, if not entirely, responsible for the trading activity in a Fund’s shares, which may be comprised of purchase or sale transactions initiated by HFMC and its affiliates. Such trading activity by the Fund’s affiliates may impact other investors seeking to purchase or sell Fund shares at the same time, which may diminish over time to the extent that the Fund increases in size and becomes more broadly owned.
USE OF CASH OR MONEY MARKET INVESTMENTS
Each Fund may participate in a cash sweep program whereby a Fund’s uninvested cash balance is used to purchase shares of affiliated or unaffiliated money market funds or cash management pooled investment vehicles at the end of each day. To the extent a Fund invests its uninvested cash through a sweep program, it is subject to the risks of the account or fund into which it is investing, including liquidity issues that may delay the Fund from accessing its cash.
A Fund may invest some of its assets in cash, high quality money market instruments (including, but not limited to U.S. government securities, bank obligations, commercial paper and repurchase agreements involving the foregoing securities) and shares of money market funds.
Participation In Securities Lending Activities
Each Fund may lend portfolio securities to certain borrowers in U.S. and non-U.S. markets in an amount not to exceed one third (33 1/3%) of the value of its total assets.
Operational Risks Associated With Cybersecurity
Each Fund and its service providers use internet, technology and information systems, which may expose the Fund to potential risks linked to cybersecurity breaches of those technological or information systems. Cybersecurity breaches, amongst other things, could allow an unauthorized party to gain access to proprietary information, customer data, or Fund assets, or cause a Fund and/or its service providers to suffer data corruption or lose operational functionality. For instance, cybersecurity breaches may interfere with the processing of shareholder transactions, impact a Fund’s ability to calculate its NAV, cause the release of private shareholder information or confidential business information, impede trading, subject the Fund to regulator fines or financial losses and/or cause reputational damage.
About Each Fund’s Investment Objective
Each Fund’s investment objective may be changed by the Funds’ Board without approval of the shareholders of the Fund. A Fund’s prospectus will be updated prior to any change in the Fund’s investment objective. In addition, the Trust may determine to cease operating a Fund as an “exchange-traded” fund and cause the Fund’s shares to stop trading on a securities exchange.
Consequences of Portfolio Trading Practices
Each Fund may have a relatively high portfolio turnover and may, at times, engage in short-term trading. To the extent that Creation Unit purchases from and redemptions by a Fund are effected in cash, frequent purchases and redemptions may increase the rate of portfolio turnover. Such activity could produce higher brokerage expenses for a Fund and higher taxable distributions to the Fund’s shareholders and therefore could adversely affect the Fund’s performance. In addition, large movements of cash into or out of a Fund may negatively impact the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective or maintain a consistent level of operating expenses. Each Fund is not managed to achieve a particular tax result for shareholders. Shareholders should consult their own tax advisor for individual tax advice.

INVESTMENT POLICIES
Each Fund, except Hartford Multifactor Diversified International ETF and Hartford Longevity Economy ETF, has a name that suggests a focus on a particular type of investment. In accordance with Rule 35d-1 under the 1940 Act, each Fund, except Hartford Multifactor Diversified International ETF and Hartford Longevity Economy ETF, has adopted a policy that it will, under normal circumstances, invest at least 80% of the value of its assets (net assets plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in investments of the type suggested by its name, as set forth in the Fund’s Principal Investment Strategy section (“80% Policy”). This requirement is applied at the time a Fund invests its assets. If, subsequent to an investment by a Fund, this requirement is no longer met, the Fund’s future investments will be made in a manner that will bring the Fund into compliance with this requirement. In addition, in appropriate circumstances, synthetic investments may count toward the 80% minimum if they have economic characteristics similar to the other investments of the types suggested by the Fund’s name. A Fund’s 80% Policy is not a “fundamental” one, which means that it may be changed without the vote of a majority of the Fund’s outstanding shares as defined in the 1940 Act. The name of a Fund may be changed at any time by a vote of the Fund’s Board of Trustees. Shareholders will be given written notice at least 60 days prior to any change by a Fund of its 80% Policy covered by Rule 35d-1.
Additional Investment Strategies and Risks
Each Fund may invest in various securities and engage in various investment techniques that are not the principal focus of the Fund and, therefore, are not described in this prospectus. These securities and techniques, together with their risks, are discussed in the Funds’ SAI, which may be obtained free of charge by contacting the Funds (see back cover for address, phone number and website address).
56

Disclosure of Portfolio Holdings
On each business day, before commencement of trading on NYSE Arca or Cboe BZX, as applicable, each Fund will disclose on hartfordfunds.com the identities and quantities of the Fund’s portfolio holdings that will form the basis for the Fund’s calculation of NAV at the end of the business day.
A description of each Fund’s policies and procedures with respect to the disclosure of the Fund’s portfolio securities is available in the SAI.

The Investment Adviser and Sub-Adviser
THE INVESTMENT ADVISER
Lattice Strategies LLC (“Lattice” or the “Adviser”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hartford Funds Management Company, LLC (“HFMC”), serves as the investment adviser to each Fund and, subject to the supervision of the Board, is responsible for the investment management of the Funds. Lattice has been a registered investment adviser since 2004. The Adviser is an indirect subsidiary of The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. (“The Hartford”), a Connecticut-based financial services company. As of December 31, 2023, the Adviser and HFMC had approximately $129.3 billion in discretionary assets under management. The Adviser is responsible for the management of the Funds and supervises the activities of the investment sub-adviser described below. The Adviser’s principal business address is 690 Lee Road, Wayne, Pennsylvania 19087.
“manager of managers” structure
The Adviser relies on an exemptive order from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for the Funds under which it uses a “Manager of Managers” structure (the “Order”). The Adviser has responsibility, subject to oversight by the Board of Trustees, to oversee the sub-adviser and recommend its hiring, termination and replacement. The Order permits the Adviser, on behalf of the Funds and subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees, to hire and to materially amend any existing or future sub-advisory agreement with sub-advisers that are not affiliated with the Adviser as well as sub-advisers that are indirect or direct, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Adviser or of another company that, indirectly or directly wholly owns the Adviser, in each case without obtaining approval from the respective Fund’s shareholders. Within 90 days after hiring any new sub-adviser, the Fund’s shareholders will receive information about any new sub-advisory relationship.
Shareholders of the Funds have approved the operation of the Funds under any “Manager of Managers” structure, including under (i) the Order, and/or (ii) any future law, regulation, guidance or exemptive relief provided by the SEC.
THE INVESTMENT SUB-ADVISER
Mellon Investments Corporation (“Mellon” or the “Sub-Adviser”) serves as each Fund’s sub-adviser and performs the daily investment of the assets for each Fund. The Sub-Adviser has been registered as an investment adviser since 1983 and is owned by BNY Mellon. As of December 31, 2023, the Sub-Adviser managed approximately $842.8 billion in assets. The Sub-Adviser’s principal business address is BNY Mellon Center, 201 Washington Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02108-4408.
