West, Jr., Chairman and CEO of SEI. “I am extremely confident in Paul’s abilities to lead this business going forward.  Paul has been an integral part of SEI’s Institutional Group and has played a major role in turning what was a new business at SEI in the 1990s, into a market-leading asset management and solutions business for institutional investors.”

“It’s been a great experience to work alongside Ed and the rest of my Institutional colleagues for the last 22 years,” Klauder said. “I’m humbled to have been selected for this position and look forward to continued success with our team as we look to adapt our solutions and capabilities to an ever-evolving, global institutional marketplace.
