A Time-tested Approach

Using our time-tested investment process for researching and identifying institutional investment managers, we build portfolios that are designed to deliver consistent performance in a risk-managed framework. Our portfolios reflect our point of view on the markets and economy to capture opportunities over the short and long term. SEI can make recommendations or take on full fiduciary discretion for investment decisions if needed. We understand that plans have different needs, and can tailor our services to best suit your organization.  

Monitoring for Success

Our custom goals-based reports track progress towards goals. In addition to the usual risk and performance reporting, we provide a graphical snapshot of the plan’s funded status, impact on enterprise financials, and other key metrics.

Services Defined

We offer a comprehensive approach to pension management that takes historically disconnected processes and integrates them into one solution to:

  • Support timely, nimble decision-making
  • Enable proactive risk management and monitoring
  • Provide more consistent investment results

We will serve as a partner to incorporate a customized solution unique to your financial goals and objectives.
