Technology, people and processes  a comprehensive business process outsourcing (BPO) solution

This total solution goes beyond data center management and application development, like traditional software-as-a-service business models. Instead, it handles the back-office operational processes associated with marketable securities. We rely on our wholly-owned subsidiary, the SEI Private Trust Company (SPTC), to perform these activities. The SPTC is federally chartered and regulated by the OCC and is authorized to engage in fiduciary and custodial services.

As an owner and operator of our next-generation solution, the SEI Wealth PlatformSM, we use our own technology to process your business. When you partner with us, your clients, employees, and partners have access to the same technology being used to run your business. This provides a level of consistency and transparency that is unparalleled in the industry today.
