Genworth Wealth Management Introduces New Turnkey Offering in GPS Select Solution
New investment solutions to help advisors harness the power of sophisticated diversification

PLEASANT HILL, Calif., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genworth Financial Wealth Management (GFWM), a subsidiary of Genworth Financial (NYSE: GNW), today announced the introduction of GPS Select Solutions, a suite of sophisticated new multi-strategist solutions to help grow or preserve wealth, generate income, or serve a variety of other specific investment goals. GPS Select Solutions consists of portfolios that incorporate the strategies of multiple portfolio strategists within single accounts. The portfolios offer financial advisors on the Genworth Wealth Management platform powerful new ways to help their clients.

Advisors can use GPS Select Solutions' diversified, multi-strategist portfolios to provide either a comprehensive investment solution directed at a broad goal, or a targeted complement to other holdings. GPS Select Solutions joins the firm's existing GPS Solutions (formerly Genworth Portfolio Solutions) as part of the family of Guided Portfolios - goal-oriented, turnkey investment accounts with built-in diversification across asset allocation approaches and alternative investments.

GPS Solutions were introduced in May 2011 and have $1.6 billion in assets as of December 2012. The success of this product led the firm to create GPS Select Solutions to round out the Guided Portfolios offering.

"Increasingly, financial advisors using our platform are looking to us—based on our expertise, research and rigorous due diligence - to offer powerful, yet streamlined, investment solutions that reflect our diversification philosophy," said Gurinder S. Ahluwalia, President and Chief Executive Officer of Genworth Wealth Management. "Advisors can build portfolios themselves by combining strategies from our purpose-built roster, and now they can use Guided Portfolios to serve greater numbers of clients and prospects."

"GPS Select Solutions reflect our deep understanding of the strategists on our platform and combine their thinking to serve specific investment objectives," said Michael Abelson, Senior Vice President of Investment and Product Management. "They deliver sophisticated strategies of multiple portfolio strategists with the convenience of a single account, accompanied by numerous benefits including an all-in-one fee; a single statement; visibility of underlying holdings and allocation changes; transparency into the investment process; and ongoing monitoring and rebalancing of assets. We're excited to offer this unprecedented capability."
