SEI today announced it received the “Best Group Over Three Years” award in the “Equity Small Company” category at the 2017 Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards in the United Kingdom.

Commenting on the award, Jason Collins, Global Head of Equities at SEI, said:
“This award is a reflection of the strength of both SEI’s investment process and philosophy, as well as the depth of talent at SEI. The ability to add value for investors through our active portfolio management and manager-of-managers approach is the foundation of our investment programs.”

These funds are actively managed and are core components of SEI’s Goals-Based Strategic Portfolios.
