Vested was selected following a competitive and extensive search by SEI, which drives change within the investment management industry. SEI manages, advises and administers $945 billion in hedge funds, private equity, mutual funds worldwide. The firm sought a strategic partner to support elevating its UK and European profile, and bolster all areas of the business. SEI’s brief includes PR and influencer relations across the firm’s asset management, wealth management, and investor relations businesses.
“In our agency search, finding a firm that specialises in financial services was a key priority,” said SEI’s Global Head of Communications Leslie Wojcik. “We were impressed by Vested’s deep knowledge of our space and the evidence of their commitment and creativity stood out throughout the process. They have brought a fresh perspective, and from the outset, are a strong cultural fit for SEI.”
Both firms are committed to rigour and efficiency in the workplace, and finding smart, data-driven solutions for tough problems. The firms share a mutual appreciation for imaginative, vibrant ideas and concepts, pushing boundaries and leaving lasting impressions.
“SEI and Vested share a passion for financial services, key to which is understanding financial behaviour and technology.
