Westwood Holdings Group Inc: Westwood Holdings Group and Aviva Investors Announce Extension of Strategic Partnership

DALLAS, Sept. 26, 2016 (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."
