Asset management services provided by SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC) a wholly owned subsidiary of SEI Investments Company (SEI).

There are risks involved with investing, including loss of principal. There is no assurance goals will be met nor that risk can be managed successfully. Diversification may not protect against market risk.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) guidelines may cause a manager to make or avoid certain investment decisions when it may be disadvantageous to do so. This means that these investments may underperform other similar investments that do not consider ESG guidelines when making investment decisions. ESG and Sustainability are not uniformly defined across the industry.

In all cases, a Client may, at any time, impose reasonable restrictions on the management of a Client’s account. Such restrictions may include one or more “screens” offered by SIMC that restrict or permanently remove securities from the Client’s selected strategy on the basis of ESG or other criteria.

Neither SEI nor its subsidiaries provide tax advice. Please note that (i) any discussion of U.S. tax matters contained in this communication cannot be used by you for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties; (ii) this communication was written to support the promotion or marketing of the matters addressed herein; and (iii) you should seek advice based on your particular circumstances from an independent tax advisor.

For those portfolios of individually managed securities, SIMC makes recommendations as to which manager will manage each asset class. SIMC may recommend the termination or replacement of a money manager and the investor has the option to move the account assets to another custodian or to change the manager as recommended.

For those SEI Funds which employ the ‘manager of managers’ structure, SIMC has ultimate responsibility for the investment performance of the Funds due to its responsibility to oversee the sub-advisers and recommend their hiring, termination and replacement. 

 

SEI Systematic Core Strategies

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, the Strategies are subject to tracking error risk or the risk that the performance of a portfolio designed to track an index may vary substantially from the performance of the benchmark index it tracks as a result of cash flows, portfolio expenses, imperfect correlation between the portfolio’s and benchmark’s investments and other factors. This risk is magnified when sampling a benchmark index as the strategy may not track the return of its benchmark index as well as it would have if the strategy purchased all of the securities in its benchmark index.

Distribution-Focused Strategies

Due to the ever changing nature of investments and retirement objectives, it is critical that an investor’s retirement investment plan is revisited at least once a year, and more frequently if possible.

There is no guarantee that the investment objective will be fulfilled. The principal balance of the portfolio may be depleted prior to a portfolio's target end-date and, therefore, distributions may end earlier than expected. This risk increases if the distribution amount chosen is a significant portion of the starting principal.

The projected time periods do not take into account the payment of fees to the advisor out of the portfolio or any other distribution from the account.
