MILWAUKEE, WI, August 08, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Heartland Funds’ Value Plus Fund (HRVIX) chosen by Charles Schwab Investment Advisory (CSIA) to be on the 2017 Q3 Schwab Mutual Fund OneSource Select List[R].

Mutual funds on the Select List are rigorously screened by Schwab experts based on such factors as risk, performance, and expenses. Names selected are those that Schwab believes are most likely to outperform their peers over the next one to three years.

“We are honored to be chosen for inclusion on the Schwab Mutual Fund OneSource Select List[R], and view the addition as a testament to the team’s consistent application of our disciplined value approach,” said Will Nasgovitz, Chief Executive Officer of Heartland Advisors, Inc. “The Value Plus Fund is true to our roots of applying our 10 Principles of Value Investing[TM] in the evaluation and selection of attractively valued small-cap companies.”

Past performance does not guarantee future results.

The Value Plus Fund invests in small companies that are generally less liquid and more volatile than large companies. The Fund also invests in a smaller number of stocks (generally 40 to 70) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings generally will increase the volatility of the Fund’s returns. Value investments are subject to the risk that their intrinsic value may not be recognized by the broad market.

There is no guarantee that a particular investment strategy will be successful. Dividends are not guaranteed and a company’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited. A company currently paying dividends may cease paying dividends at any time. There is no assurance that dividend-paying stocks will mitigate volatility.
