Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

The Leuthold Group [profile] just brought in a broker-dealer veteran to handle relationships with B-Ds. Today the Minneapolis-based asset manager, one of the backers of Leuthold Weeden Capital Management and its tactical-allocation-focused Leuthold Funds, revealed the addition of Ben Mitchell as a managing director.

"We anticipate a busy 2012, not only on the portfolio management side -- where we continue to navigate one of the most difficult markets in memory -- but also on the distribution side," stated Jeff Leadholm, co-CEO of the Leuthold Group. "In this environment of choppy markets and low yields, many investors are interested in our flexible, tactical-allocation investment approach."

Mitchell previously covered the South and Mid-Atlantic as a vice president and regional wealth management consultant for RBC. He also served as national sales director for Smith Barney Consulting Group, after working at Morgan Stanley.

Leuthold now manages more than $3.3 billion in assets.
