SEI has added UK platforms specialist Andrew Vickers as its new UK head of sales.
SEI said in a statement earlier today that the former Selestia, Skandia and Old Mutual Wealth veteran is joining the company to help develops its SEI Wealth Platform customer base.
He will report to Brett Williams, managing director, SEI Wealth Platform, UK Private Banking.
Vickers, who has many years of wealth management experience was part of the management team that delivered and launched the pioneering online Selestia Platform for Old Mutual in early 2001, and had subsequently worked at a senior level with Skandia and Old Mutual Wealth.
Vickers called the move to work with SEI “too good to miss”.
“Successful investment businesses of the future will cross the ‘technology bridge’ and focus on their key strengths, outsourcing the rest to experts like SEI. I really look forward to working with the team to help shape the way wealth managers make the most of the huge opportunity that presents itself today and in the future.”
The SEI Wealth Platform is an outsourcing solution for wealth managers encompassing wealth processing services and wealth management programs and business process expertise. With the platform, SEI provides wealth management organisations with the infrastructure, operations, and administrative support.
The platform supports trading and transactions on 149 stock exchanges in 55 countries and 41 currencies, through the use of straight-through processing and a single operating infrastructure environment.
