SEI Investments, a global provider of asset management products and investment technology, has set its sights on the hedge fund market.
The company has plans to launch hedge fund products, probably in the second half of the year and recently appointed Paul Osborne, head of UK marketing, poaching him from Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch in preparation.
Osborne will be in charge of marketing to UK pension funds, an industry that has been cautiously increasing its investment in hedge funds.
He will report to Patrick Disney, managing director and head of institutional business development.
SEI has also joined with RiskMetrics Group to provide integrated risk analytics to the alternative investment market. The two companies are working together to provide risk reporting for single strategy and fund of hedge fund managers.
