OAKS, PA--(Marketwire - Mar 11, 2013) -   SEI ( NASDAQ : SEIC ) today announced the expansion of its U.S. Institutional team with the addition of three industry veterans. The roles were created to support the record $9.4 billion in new institutional assets that SEI added in 2012 and the projected growth in the outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO) marketplace over the next few years. The positions will work with current and potential clients in the defined benefit, defined contribution, healthcare, and nonprofit markets to provide custom discretionary services, including ongoing investment manager selection and oversight and portfolio management. SEI currently has more than 450 OCIO clients worldwide, representing $64 billion in assets.*

SEI added one senior-level position to its Institutional Business Development Team. Joseph Mulford serves as Managing Director for the foundation and endowment market and is responsible for fostering new business relationships, overseeing new client transition management and promoting SEI's OCIO solution to nonprofit organizations. With more than 20 years of experience in the investment management industry, Joe most recently worked for Russell Investments, where he oversaw new business development and relationship management for the company's nonprofit institutional clients. Prior to that position, he served six years as Managing Director, Client Sales and Service for Commonfund.

"SEI saw incredible new business growth in our OCIO business last year in all markets, and we continue to see strong interest in investment outsourcing by nonprofit organizations," said Paul Klauder, Vice President and Managing Director of Business Development, SEI's Institutional Group. "Joe brings extensive experience in working with foundations and endowments to identify their top investment goals and challenges and creating the best custom solutions to fit their needs."

In his new role, Glenn delivers ongoing strategic advice, manages complex relationships, provides timely reporting and analysis to clients' senior management and committees, and works with clients on investment policy and portfolio development. Glenn also comes to SEI from Russell Investments, where he spent more than 13 years in a relationship management capacity and was responsible for leading clients in the defined benefit, defined contribution and nonprofit market segments. Prior to Russell, he was a relationship manager for J.P. Morgan's defined contribution clients.

  • Daniel McFadden serves as Senior Relationship Manager and oversees investment strategy development and implementation for SEI's defined benefit, defined contribution, healthcare and nonprofit clients. Dan brings more than 20 years of investment experience to his role and expertise in working with institutional investors of all sizes and markets, with a special focus on investment policy and portfolio development for corporate, public and Taft-Hartley pension plans and nonprofit foundations.

Prior to that role, he was Senior Vice President of Client Service for Brandywine Global Investments, where he was responsible for the relationship management of institutional clients across all markets. Dan is a Certified Public Accountant.
