SEI acquires Archway Technology Partners

SEI has acquired Archway Technology Partners, a provider of operating technologies and services to the family office industry and the institutions who service that market.

SEI says the move will allow it to better serve the family office segment, and address additional verticals, including institutions, investment advisors, private banks, hedge funds, and private equity funds.
“This announcement represents a modest shift in SEI’s long-held belief in purely organic growth. We believe there is value in growing through carefully considered strategic acquisitions that add to our expanding geographic footprint, market reach, platform functionality and expertise,” says Alfred P West, J, Chairman and CEO of SEI. “Archway’s stellar reputation in the family office industry, market-leading solutions, and talented, client-oriented employees make them a valuable addition to SEI, and we look forward to welcoming the Archway team into our culture and company.”
“Archway’s specialised technologies and deep knowledge of the private wealth services industry give us a more powerful, differentiated solution to a USD7 trillion global family-office market that has been underserved by legacy service providers,” says Steve Meyer (pictured), Executive Vice President of SEI and Head of SEI’s Investment Manager Services division. “SEI’s operating solutions, enhanced by Archway’s capabilities, will help family offices, institutions, wealth managers, and asset owners better navigate this new operational frontier and service their clients more effectively.”
“Joining SEI will help us provide the next level of institutional-quality, state-of-the-art solutions to the family office and wealth management marketplace,” says Jason Brown, CEO of Archway. “SEI’s market focus and commitment to the broader asset management segments aligns directly with, and is uniquely complementary to, our focus on providing services to the family office, high-end wealth advisory, and institutional wealth management segments. Our two organisations also share a strong service ethic and culture of innovation that are perfectly suited to our unique and demanding client base.  We are excited to be a part of the SEI family and look forward to the expanded opportunities that lie ahead for our combined organisation.”
