ABOUT SEI

Investment Philosophy

Holistic asset management with continuous multilevel monitoring

Our manager of managers active investment management process allows us to provide highly diversified investment solutions, while managing the total risk.

How it works

We are responsible for the portfolio structure, manager selection, and manager evaluation within an investment portfolio.

We strive to select the best investment talent from a global network of institutional money managers, then direct and supervise the overall investment program. This outsourcing approach allows us to:

  • Select the most appropriate managers specializing in specific market sectors
  • Leverage institutional investment managers generally available only to organizations with many millions of dollars to invest
  • Implement strategic portfolio-level changes more cost-effectively

Rigorous oversight

Continuous multilevel monitoring of these managers ensures investment performance is driven by each manager’s individual security selection. This helps us:

  • Provide more consistent returns
  • Reduce risk 
  • Lower overall volatility
  • Provide security-level transparency

We analyze the performance of these money managers on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis, evaluating everything from security trades to complete organizational reviews. Those managers who fail to achieve stated goals – or deviate from their stated philosophy – are subject to replacement.

Our commitment to our clients

As one of the largest manager of managers in the world, we are committed to constant review and adjustment, adapting to shifting market conditions and macro-economic developments.
