What we do


To create resilient and meaningful futures for the next generation, our custody services focus on accountability, safety, and security.

Safeguarding assets starts with keeping them in your client's name.

There is no greater responsibility than the security and safety of your clients’ assets. It helps protect futures for the next generation.

Through SEI Private Trust Company, we don’t commingle, pledge, lend or margin client assets. Because your client’s money is just that–their money. This is a different approach from a bank or brokerage firm that is able to commingle client assets with its own assets.  This commingling of funds has been a factor in many fraud situations.

Safeguards in place:

  • Regular audits performed by independent and internal auditors
  • Subject to examination by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)

Custody services include:

  • Safekeeping/storage of financial assets
  • Reporting package
  • Trade settlement
  • Income distribution
  • Custodian-to-custodian transfers
  • Cash processing
  • Corporate action accounting

Your security is our priority.
