Investment Team

The Investment Team includes portfolio managers, research analysts, and traders. The Team applies Heartland’s value investing philosophy and disciplined investment process, the 10 Principles of Value Investing™, to manage the three domestic Heartland Funds and four separately managed account strategies.

The team collectively has almost 250 years of industry experience, more than 160 of those years obtained at Heartland, as of March 31, 2022.

Portfolio managers and research analysts work side-by-side to apply a bottom-up approach that combines traditional fundamental analysis and meetings with management, competitors, and end clients of the businesses we consider for investment. Collaboration allows the Investment Team to cross-cover sectors and companies, generate a significant amount of internal research, and challenge investment ideas from multiple perspectives.

We believe the Investment Team’s interests are aligned with our clients because the Team, along with other Heartland team members, collectively owned about $38 million in the Heartland Funds as of March 31, 2022.
