Areas of Expertise

  • Platform-agnostic, customisable technology and advice
  • Turnkey asset allocation
  • Investment strategies
  • Goals-based investing

Leveraging more than three decades of experience, our team provides discretionary asset management solutions, underpinned by SEI's manager research, asset allocation and portfolio construction advice. 

Our mission: To enable wealth management firms and their advisers to achieve success and provide better outcomes to their clients through an integrated, customisable technology, advice and investment solution.

Our team helps to minimise barriers to success, which may include a combination of small scale, lack of resources, concern with cost,  and the need to reduce firm risk (such as operational, investment and regulatory). 

We believe our key differentiator is the way we work with clients. By establishing a true strategic partnership – aligned in value proposition and shared risk – we are able to offer a high level of customisation, providing our partners with diversification, a manager-of-managers approach, and a goals-based philosophy and process. It’s in these areas that SEI has been a pioneer and which continue to be recognized as innovations in financial services.
