Hartford Funds Summer Internships

Hartford Funds designs, develops, and distributes investment solutions. Hartford Funds has been a leading provider of mutual funds and 529 college savings plans since 1996. Hartford Funds thinks differently about money management because it is not all about the numbers. It is about investors, advisors, relationships, confidence, and trust. That is why their approach is something called human-centric investing. Human-centric investing works to understand the relationships between investors, their money and their financial advisors, and then creates the products and advisor tools designed to serve those investors and their mindsets. Hartford Funds believes that human-centric investing can create products and advisor tools that not only strengthen bottom lines, but strengthen advisor-client relationships by helping investors better realize their true life goals.
