SEI Advisor Network, a business unit of SEI (Nasdaq: SEIC), today announced that it is committed to maintaining a no-fees policy for its existing and new advisor clients, regardless of the amount of assets a firm has under management.

It also underscores SEI's commitment to providing best-in-class resources to all advisors, regardless of size.
"At SEI we want our advisor partners of all sizes and types to be focused on one goal – operating and growing their businesses successfully," said
, Managing Director, SEI Advisor Network. "Advisors who have to worry about account minimums, asset minimums, and program fees can easily be distracted from what really matters – building their practices and consulting with clients. Through our current platform, we've proven that if you give advisors the tools to be successful, the economics will work for everyone. That's why we're committed to our 'no fees, no matter what' pledge and helping our advisors grow and maintain their practices, regardless of their position in their business cycles."
Despite its no fees policy for advisors, SEI continues to offer the industry's most scalable platform with the broadest range of outsourcing services to advisors of all sizes.
