Heartland Select Value Fund (Investor: HRSVX) was named the “Best Multi-Cap Value Fund” over 3 and 5 years for the period ending December 31, 2009, among 267 and 211 funds, respectively. The awards program honors funds that “have excelled in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to peers,” according to Lipper.
“This year marks the fourth consecutive year the Select Value Fund has been awarded Best Multi-Cap Value Fund,” said Dave Fondrie, co-portfolio manager of the Select Value Fund. “Our portfolio management team is proud to be the recipient of these prestigious awards. We believe the achievements demonstrate consistency in Heartland’s value investing process in various market environments.”
For more than 25 years, Heartland has utilized the disciplined and time-tested 10 Principles of Value Investing™ to identify stocks with strong financial profiles and low prices relative to their earnings, cash flows and book values. This value-based investment approach provides investors with the potential for capital appreciation and a potential margin of safety to limit downside risk. The Select Value Fund seeks to capture long-term capital appreciation through dynamic pursuit of value irrespective of market capitalization. The team managing the Fund that received these awards includes Ted Baszler, Hugh Denison, Dave Fondrie and Will Nasgovitz.

The Funds invest in small companies selected on a value basis. Such securities generally are more volatile and less liquid than those of larger companies. Value based investments are subject to the risk that the broad market may not recognize their intrinsic values. The Select Value and Value Plus Funds also invest in a smaller number of stocks (generally 30 to 60) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings generally will increase the volatility of the Funds’ returns.
