Heartland has kicked off a search to add to the part of the team that focuses on the direct channel. There are 25,000 accounts in this channel, Ribbens said.
The firm has four other points of distribution: institutional, platforms, RIAs and high net worth.

Heartland manages $2 billion of assets across its three mutual funds.
