“While we and the rest of the world continue to cope with the pandemic, our employees’ health and safety remain our top priority as we move through our return-to-office plans. We are proud of our global workforce’s resilience as they manage the extended period of a remote workplace—all the while remaining totally committed to supporting and servicing our clients. We greatly appreciate the healthcare workers and others who help us deal with COVID-19’s impact on our lives,” said Alfred P. West, Jr., SEI Chairman and CEO.
“While financial markets somewhat rebounded during the quarter, we experienced headwinds that impacted our results. Our client engagement was high last quarter, resulting in positive sales activity. We continue to invest in our One SEI strategy, using this period to accelerate the necessary development work that will bring this initiative to its full potential.
“Our view of the future is not dampened by the challenges we all face in society today. Our diverse global workforce is the foundation of what will enable us to fulfill our promise of serving our clients and communities in which we work and live. Capitalizing on the opportunities in the markets we serve and the solutions we offer will lead to increased shareholder value.”
