Why outsource your middle office to SEI?

Money managers often view the operational aspects of their businesses as non-strategic and sometimes as merely a necessary evil. But by outsourcing to SEI, you can actually gain competitive advantage by:

  • Increasing confidence in your investment decision process with accurate daily investment and portfolio accounting data
  • Eliminating the need to build and maintain a costly technology and operational environment
  • Decreasing the risk and complexity that comes from managing multiple trading counterparties, custodians and/or prime brokers, as well as multiple distribution channels
  • Migrating your business from a fixed-cost model to a variable-cost model
  • Obtaining a holistic snapshot of your business and producing operational metrics, helping you to enhance your decision making and better manage your portfolios and business
  • Reducing time to market by leveraging our range of existing technology systems built to support and scale with any number of instruments, funds and product types
  • Improving your due diligence profile to your clients, investors and prospects
