OAKS, Pa., Aug. 24, 2021 – SEI (NASDAQ:SEIC) today announced the launch of the SEI Domestic ETF Strategies, adding five new asset allocation-based models to the SEI ETF Strategy family. The Strategies offer independent advisors enhanced investment flexibility through the SEI Wealth PlatformSM.
“Investors are increasingly looking to their advisors for lower-cost, tax-efficient and transparent investment solutions that can help them to achieve their financial goals,” said J. Womack, Managing Director of Investment Products and Services for Independent Advisor Solutions by SEI. “We’re excited to expand our ETF solutions and provide advisors the added flexibility to offer their clients a range of thoughtfully constructed and well-diversified model portfolios that emphasize domestic equity and fixed income exposures.”
The new Strategies leverage SEI’s investment philosophy and oversight, as well as its long-standing expertise in asset allocation, to develop diversified portfolios comprised of ETFs from a wide range of leading investment managers. The underlying asset allocation models are designed to maximize risk-adjusted returns with options across a broad risk-return spectrum—all of which exclusively allocate to equity and fixed income securities issued by U.S. companies.
