Genworth Financial Renames Broker/Dealer

RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genworth Financial (NYSE: GNW) today announced that the company's broker/dealer unit has been re- named Genworth Financial Securities Corp. and its investment adviser unit has been re-named Genworth Financial Advisers Corp. Previously, these entities conducted business under the "Terra" name.

"Transitioning to the 'Genworth' name brings clarity to our organizational structure and gives us a consistent identity with our parent organization, which is well known for its financial services offerings," said Enrique Vasquez, CEO of Genworth Financial Investment Services.

Genworth Financial Investment Services has almost 2,000 independent contractor registered representatives including independent tax and accounting professionals and financial planners. The organization has more than $1.6 billion in assets under management in its fee-based money management programs through its registered investment adviser, Genworth Financial Advisers. Representatives serve tens of thousands of clients across the country, offering a full range of financial services and a complete suite of products including annuities, life and long-term care insurance, money management programs and mutual funds.

"This is a very exciting time in the growth and development of our business," said Dave Reedy, Founder and President of Genworth Financial Securities and Genworth Financial Advisers. "Our firm has grown substantially over the last few years, and we see increased demand for financial services and products. This is particularly true when it comes to investment solutions that meet retirement and long-term savings needs."

Genworth Financial Investment Services has been conducting business for more than 20 years. It has expanded consistently over that time and, last year, grew significantly with the acquisition of Hochman & Baker Securities, Inc. With this acquisition, the firm became one of the largest accounting- oriented broker/dealers. In addition, the Genworth Financial Advisers network now numbers more than 900 professionals.

Genworth Financial (NYSE: GNW) is a leading insurance holding company, serving the lifestyle protection, retirement income, investment and mortgage needs of more than 15 million customers, with operations in 24 countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K and more than a dozen other European countries.
