The Harbor Strategic Growth Fund, subadvised by Mar Vista Investment Partners, LLC, invests in equity securities that are determined to have strong growth characteristics and that are undervalued in the marketplace. The Fund invests primarily in equity securities of U.S. companies. The Fund tends to invest more significantly in larger companies, but may also invest in mid and small sized companies. The portfolio manager uses a bottom-up approach to identify businesses with a sustainable competitive advantage.

The Fund maintains a portfolio of approximately 30-50 stocks. However, the actual number of portfolio holdings may vary due to market conditions. Holdings are generally spread across a number of industries/sectors but may have a higher percentage in sectors that the Subadviser believes have greater investment opportunities.

Performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the past performance data shown. Investment returns and the value of an investment will fluctuate, and an investor's shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. You can obtain performance data current to the most recent month-end (available within seven business days after the most recent month-end) by calling 800-422-1050 or visiting www.harborfunds.com.

The Harbor Funds performance shown assumes the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions and is net of management fees and expenses. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.

From time to time, certain fees and/or expenses have been voluntarily or contractually waived or reimbursed, which has resulted in higher returns. Without these waivers or reimbursements, the returns would have been lower. Voluntary waivers or reimbursements may be applied or discontinued at any time without notice. Only the Board of Trustees may modify or terminate contractual fee waivers or expense reimbursements.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to limit the Fund's operating expenses, excluding interest expense (if any) and the AFFE, to 0.70%, 0.95%, 1.07% and 0.62% for the Institutional Class, Administrative Class, Investor Class and Retirement Class, respectively, through February 28, 2019. Only the Fund's Board of Trustees may modify or terminate this agreement.

Contractual expense limitation, excluding interest expense, if any, and the acquired fund fees and expenses, through February 28, 2019

Ex-Date. The date on which a Fund's net asset value (NAV) will fall by an amount equal to the dividend and/or capital gain distribution plus or minus any change in the value of the Fund's holdings.

Based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year.

The acquired fund fees and expenses ("AFFE") are the expenses indirectly incurred by the Fund as a result of its investments during the most recent fiscal year in investment companies and other pooled investment vehicles. Because these costs are indirect, the total annual fund operating expenses in this fee table will not correlate to the expense ratio shown in the Fund's financial highlights table because that ratio does not include the AFFE.

Based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year

About Expense Ratios: All mutual funds have expense ratios which represent what shareholders pay for operating expenses and management fees. Expense ratios are expressed as an annualized percentage of a fund's average net assets paid out in expenses. Net expense ratios reflect adjustments due to voluntary or contractual fee waivers or expense reimbursements. Expense ratio information is as of the Fund's current prospectus, as revised and supplemented from time to time.
