The Rule of 72 is a mathematical concept and is not illustrative of any Heartland investment. The examples generated are hypothetical and are for illustrative purposes only. It does not guarantee or predict how an investment will perform. It is an approximation of the effect of given rates of return and assumes a long-term investment horizon of greater than 20 years. It is important to keep in mind that most investments, including mutual funds, do not grow at a steady rate and the Rule of 72 should only be used as a guide in setting longterm investment goals.
Neither Heartland nor any of its representatives may give legal or tax advice. For guidance on a specific situation, investors should consult their tax adviser or legal counsel.
Past performance does not guarantee future results.
