Master Trust

A 360-degree governance solution for Defined Contribution Schemes that looks to secure the best possible outcomes for members

SEI's Master Trust has obtained independent assurance of Scheme Quality.

Employers who want to help employees save for retirement have to make complex decisions about the level of support and oversight they can provide to meet regulatory requirements. Our innovation in DC pension provision, SEI Master Trust, gives you strong governance with limited burden by outsourcing the decision making to an independent trustee body.

Our goal mirrors yours – to improve retirement outcomes for your members.

Our Master Trust solution for Defined Contribution schemes offers:

10 Years Providing a Master Trust solution
  • A combination of best-of-breed investment management with scheme administration, member communications and auto-enrolment assessment
  • Manager selection and monitoring, asset allocation decisions and consistent research into DC issues important to you
  • Full 360-degree governance to address regulatory requirements 

When is less actually more?
