Westwood Closes WHG SMidCap Fund To New Investors And Announces Filing Of WHG SMidCap Plus+ Fund

Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) announced that it closed the WHG SMidCap Fund (WHGMX) to new investors to protect the interests of existing clients and shareholders. The successful growth of SMidCap has resulted in the strategy reaching its asset capacity; however, the fund will continue to accept additional investments from existing shareholders.

Westwood also announced the filing of a registration statement with the SEC for the WHG SMidCap Plus+ Fund, which will be managed by the same investment team as the WHG SMidCap Fund. The new fund will offer investors a strategy that considers small- and mid-cap companies with market capitalizations between $2 billion and $15 billion and will not generally invest in securities with market capitalizations below $2 billion.

Due to institutional demand, Westwood launched its SMidCap Plus+ strategy in July 2010. Small to mid size companies have been an attractive area of the stock market, and Westwood has a long term track record of investing in these securities.

The WHG SMidCap Plus+ mutual fund will be offered with a total expense ratio capped at 1.00%. Fee waivers are contractual through February 28, 2013. The total annual operating expense would otherwise be 1.82%.
