“With the increasing demands being placed on hedge fund managers by their investors, regulators, and the market itself, we’ve worked closely with our clients to enhance and expand our services so that we can provide them with the expertise, technology, and reporting tools to help them protect and grow their business.” Steve Meyer, Executive Vice President and Head of SEI’s Investment Manager Services division said, “Our employees are motivated to produce a world-class offering to our clients, and this independent industry award recognizing their efforts is a testament to what they’ve been able to deliver.”
The judging committee selected SEI in part due to its technology-based solutions for collateral management, NAV disclosure, and pricing and verification. Also noted was SEI’s ability to provide managers of systematic and high-frequency trading strategies with a more automated and scalable infrastructure.
