Asset class funds

SEI asset class funds are the building blocks used to construct all of our asset allocation funds and portfolios.

The funds are actively managed using a diversified, multi-manager approach, providing access to institutional money managers at low investment minimums.

Why invest in SEI asset class funds?

Underpinning each fund, and what differentiates us, is our rigorous manager selection and monitoring process. We select and combine specialist managers for each fund and monitor them on a continual basis. Our process gives us the flexibility to add or remove managers, allocate additional funds, or take funds away—in order to optimize the fund.

Our Asset Class Funds are available in a wide array of equity and fixed income options. In addition to providing the building blocks of our portfolios and Asset Allocation Funds, they can be used on a stand-alone basis to provide advisors with the flexibility to tailor asset allocation to specific client needs—whether it be building a balanced portfolio or selecting a fund to gain exposure to a specific asset class.

These funds are available in purchase options for both traditional (Class E) and fee-based (Class F) accounts.

  • Access to multiple specialist managers and their best ideas
