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."
