The Philadelphia-based company has named Kevin Bull as strategic alliance development director and Simon Pinner as sales director. Both will report to Kevin Addison, head of asset management distribution in the UK and Europe.
Addison said: “SEI has ambitious plans in the UK and Europe, where we see significant opportunities to grow our goals-based multi-manager solution.
“Kevin and Simon both have extensive experience across U.K. and European markets and their expertise will be invaluable as SEI continues to build and strengthen relationships with distributors and advisers seeking compelling ways to add value to their businesses.”
Bull joins SEI from specialist residential property fund manager Hearthstone Investments. He has held previous roles at Old Mutual Asset Managers, Britannic Asset Managers and Prudential.
Pinner was most recently head of sales support at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership. Before this, he was at Gartmore Investment Management Limited, BNP Paribas Security Services and Thomson Financial Services.
