You're expected to produce a good result -- consistent income -- regardless of the market.
When the usual strategies aren't working or are no longer appealing, it's time to get creative.
The SEI Multi-Asset Income Fund (SIOAX) can be an alternative to traditional income-oriented mutual funds. It is built to respond to a wide range of market conditions more effectively than traditional fixed-income approaches.
The SEI Multi-Asset Income Fund makes it possible to:
- Go anywhere. Unconstrained by asset classes or benchmarks, this fund can traverse a wide range of income producing assets in the capital markets and specialized sectors.
- Have a shorter duration. Your various clients have specific reasons that they may require an income portfolio. Whatever their situation, less rate-sensitive investments may help reduce the risk when compared to other, similar funds.
- Manage risk. Our manager of managers approach is holistic asset management with continuous, multilevel monitoring. We select some of best investment talent then direct and supervise the overall program. This allows us to provide highly diversified investment solutions while managing total risk.
Getting creative can help you deliver income to your clients in a variety of market environments.

SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC) is the adviser to the SEI Funds, which are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co. (SIDCO). SIMC and SIDCO are wholly owned subsidiaries of SEI Investments Company.
For those SEI Funds which employ the 'manager of managers' structure, SIMC has the ultimate responsibility for the investment performance of the Fund due to its responsibility for the investment performance of the Fund to oversee the sub-advisers and recommend their hiring, termination and replacement.
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The Fund uses investment techniques with risks that are different from the risks ordinarily associated with fixed income and equity investments. Smaller companies and narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Investments in commodity-linked securities may be more volatile and less liquid than direct investments in the underlying commodities themselves. Commodity-related equity returns can also be affected by changes in the market value of securities held by the Fund and of the derivative instruments relating to those securities may not be proportionate.
Derivatives and swaps are also subject to illiquidity and counterparty risk. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. High yield securities may be more volatile and be subject to greater levels of credit or default risk.
The Fund may invest up to 25% of its assets in master limited partnerships, which may lack liquidity and have a negative effect on Fund performance.
To determine if the Fund(s) are an appropriate investment for you, carefully consider the investment objectives, risk factors, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund's full or summary prospectus, which can be obtained by calling 1-800-DIAL SEI. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
