Brian Casey, Westwood’s President & CEO, commented, “We are very pleased with our third quarter financial results, and the exceptionally strong performance generated by our MLP, SmallCap, and Income Opportunity teams. The Westwood Funds™ had record quarterly net inflows of $194 million, bringing Westwood Funds™ aggregate year to date net inflows this year to $528 million. We continue to experience strong demand for WIA’s Emerging Markets strategies, and are looking to expand our UCITS products in the near future.
