Heartland Select Value Fund Receives Lipper Award
At the annual Lipper awards ceremony held in New York last night, the Heartland Select Value Fund (Nasdaq:HRSVX) received the 2008 Lipper Fund Award for the Best Multi-Cap Value Fund over the past 10 years. The award was earned based on Lipper’s category of highest Consistent Return for the 10 years ending December 31, 2007. The Fund was ranked #1 of 93 multi-cap value funds for that time period.
“The Select Value Fund’s investment process with a focus on protecting downside risk has served shareholders well over the last 10 years,” said Dave Fondrie, portfolio manager of the Select Value Fund. “We’re pleased that our disciplined investment process has allowed us to generate consistent results in a variety of market environments over the long-term.”

In addition to stocks of large companies, the Select Value Fund invests in small and mid-sized companies that are generally less liquid than large companies. The Fund also invests in a smaller number of stocks (generally 40 to 60) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings may increase the volatility of the Fund’s returns. Value-based investments are subject to the risk that the broad market may not recognize their intrinsic values. Prior to December 1, 2001, the Advisor voluntarily waived a portion of the Select Value Fund’s expenses. Without such waivers, Select Value Fund’s total returns would have been lower.
