May 6, 2021
Recognition Highlights Superior Technology, Dependable Workflow Processes and Consultative Expertise
OAKS, Pa., May 6, 2021 – SEI (NASDAQ: SEIC) today announced it has won the Family Wealth Report Awards’ “Outsourcing/Business Process Outsourcing” category for the second consecutive year. SEI received this year’s recognition for its suite of end-to-end outsourced solutions, including the SEI Wealth PlatformSM and Archway PlatformSM, designed to meet the unique needs of wealth managers, family offices and the institutions who serve them. It also marks the eighth consecutive year that SEI was independently recognized by its peers on the Family Wealth Report Awards’ judging panel.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition again from the Family Wealth Report, especially in a year of significant change and turmoil. The pandemic reinforced the importance of partnering with service organizations that are dependable, agile and resilient, but also with those providing a true depth of solutions, experience and people,” said Steve Meyer, Head of SEI’s Global Wealth Management Services. “We know that firms who decide to outsource a part of their business require a certain level of initial trust and ongoing commitment. We take providing both very seriously. The deep and lasting connections that we have spent years developing—with each other, our clients and industry partners—have been a meaningful driver of our joint resilience and success in good times and bad. We are indebted to our teams at SEI for relentlessly delivering on our commitment to provide high-quality service and world-class, client-driven, tech-forward solutions.”
With more than 50 years in business and over 30 years providing business process outsourcing services, SEI is the first company to consistently own the core technology and employ the people and services to run the back-office operations on behalf of wealth management clients. This award highlights SEI’s ability to leverage its vast resources and solutions globally, creating an ecosystem of technologies and services across the front, middle and back office that can be expertly curated to meet clients’ evolving, complex and growing demands.
“In today’s digital-first world, flexibility, adaptability and personalization are key—not just across operations and technology, but also across the talent pool. Integration across both is critical for leveraging technology as an enabler to allow clients to focus on growing their businesses, servicing their end-clients and looking to the future.” said Meyer. “By modularizing our platforms, coupled with significant expertise, we are able to deliver the right solution at the right time and in the right manner, helping our clients—and theirs—face and embrace change. This was particularly invaluable in 2020, when remote working, collaboration and workforce models came under immense pressure.”
