Curian Capital L.L.C., a company that helps financial professionals sell fee-based separately managed accounts, says it will be hiring 21 sales professionals of its own over the next few months.

Curian, Denver, is a unit of Jackson National Life Insurance Company, Lansing, Mich., which is, in turn, a unit of Prudential P.L.C., London.

The 21 new sales professionals will include 10 external regional business consultants, 10 internal regional business consultants, and a divisional vice president, Curian says.

The new sales professors will help financial professionals improve their practices and maximize use of the Curian SMA system, Curian says.
