Information provided by Independent Advisor Solutions by SEI, a strategic business unit of SEI Investments Company (SEI). Investment services provided by SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC). Custody services provided by SEI Private Trust Company (SPTC), a federally chartered limited purpose savings association. SIMC and SPTC are wholly owned subsidiaries of SEI.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. There is no assurance the goals of a strategy discussed will be met nor that risk can be managed successfully.

For those portfolios of individually managed securities, SIMC makes recommendations as to which manager will manage each asset class. SIMC may recommend the termination or replacement of a money manager and the investor has the option to move the account assets to another custodian or to change the manager as recommended

In addition to investing risk, the SEI Systematic Core Strategies are subject to tracking error risk which is the risk that the performance of a portfolio designed to track an index may vary substantially from the performance of the benchmark index it tracks as a result of cash flows, portfolio expenses, imperfect correlation between the portfolio’s and benchmark’s investments and other factors. This risk is magnified when sampling a benchmark index as the strategy may not track the return of its benchmark index as well as it would have if the strategy purchased all of the securities in its benchmark index.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) guidelines may cause a manager to make or avoid certain investment decisions when it may be disadvantageous to do so. This means that these investments may underperform other similar investments that do not consider ESG guidelines when making investment decisions. SRI is socially responsible investing.
