Automated Alternative Investment Data Collection and Delivery Increase Family Office Efficiency
SEI (NASDAQ: SEIC) today announced enhancements to its Archway PlatformSM to automate alternative investment data workflows involving a strategic partnership with Canoe Intelligence (Canoe), a financial technology company focused on reimagining data management processes for alternative investors and capital allocators. SEI Family Office Services, a division of SEI focused on delivering technology and technology-enabled services to family offices, including seven of the top 15 wealthiest American families, and financial institutions serving ultra-high-net-worth families is part of SEI’s Global Wealth Management Services business, comprised of market-leading, innovative solutions designed to support the future growth of investment and wealth managers globally.
“As a part of our long-term vision for the Archway Platform, we have prioritized building data connectivity and integrations with complementary family office solutions that improve core business functions for our clients,” said Paul Freeland, Managing Director of SEI Family Office Services. “Family offices have a critical need for increased efficiency and automation of the otherwise manual activities associated with alternative investment data collection. We are excited to leverage Canoe’s automated workflow processes to enable our clients to receive extracts of their alternative investment data across statements, funds and managers for electronic import into the Archway Platform.”
As family offices continue to increase allocations to private equity, hedge funds, venture capital and real estate, they are seeking solutions to simplify the data aggregation required to report alternative investment performance and more efficiently complete the associated accounting. Through this strategic partnership with Canoe, automated workflows, such as document collection, data extraction and data delivery, can be integrated into SEI’s proprietary Archway Platform, allowing its users to achieve greater efficiency in their alternative investment data processing. By leveraging these integrated tools, clients are able to seamlessly input, track and report on alternative investment data as a part of their broader investment portfolios.
“We are thrilled to partner with SEI and continue enhancing the technology and tools available to family offices and wealth managers allocating to alternatives,” said Michael Muniz, Partner and Chief Revenue Officer at Canoe Intelligence. “By working together, we are not only able to help SEI clients automate document collection, improve data extraction and validation accuracy, and automate delivery into the Archway Platform, but we are also able to help increase transparency and control over their entire alternative investment document workflow.”
