Westwood Holdings Group and Aviva Investors Announce Extension of Strategic
Partnership

DALLAS, 2016-10-19 11:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE:WHG) is pleased to announce an extension of
our long term strategic partnership with Aviva Investors in the global
convertibles asset class.

With immediate effect, Aviva Investors has appointed Westwood to sub-advise the
Aviva Investors Global Convertibles Fund, a Luxembourg-domiciled long-only
convertibles fund, available to non-U.S. investors in certain countries.

Westwood will also continue to manage the Aviva Global Convertibles Absolute
Return Fund, a liquid alternative fund that the team has been involved in
managing since its inception in December 2009.

The Westwood Global Convertibles portfolio management team is led by David
Clott and Shawn Mato. Prior to joining Westwood in 2014, Clott and Mato spent
over 10 years at Aviva Investors, where they managed the Aviva Investors Global
Convertibles and Aviva Investors Global Convertibles Absolute Return Funds.

This announcement further emphasizes Westwood’s strategic commitment to
expanding our global client base by providing high-conviction and
outcome-oriented strategies to investors directly, or in this case through
sub-advisory relationships. President and CEO, Brian Casey said, “Over the past
two years, we have built a strong relationship with Aviva and delivered on the
return and risk profile expectations of the clients invested in the Aviva
Global Convertibles Absolute Return Fund. We believe the enhanced partnership
we are announcing today is a logical next step in that relationship and
strengthens Westwood’s ability to deliver our investment capabilities to
non-U.S. clients.”
