of CITs with Rothschild that will focus primarily on the defined
contribution retirement plan markets. Rothschild pointed to SEI's
depth and breadth of CIT expertise, as well as its longstanding
leadership position in the CIT marketplace as key benefits in the
relationship with SEI.  
"When you look at the CIT market, SEI's offering and expertise are
second to none," said Michael Tamasco, Rothschild's Chief Marketing
Officer. "We have worked with SEI to develop and launch seven new
daily valued CIT products for the U.S. market. SEI has a flexible
architecture and a proven track record of success, and we are
confident that our strategic partnership with SEI can not only
support these CITs today but will also support our business as we
grow the product line. We are excited to be working with SEI as we
look to expand our retirement business in the U.S."  
"As the fiduciary landscape for retirement assets continues to
evolve, CITs are uniquely positioned to take advantage of this
evolution," said John Alshefski, Senior Vice President, SEI's
Investment Manager Services division. "SEI has continually invested
in both technology and people in order to provide solutions that fill
the retirement market's ever-changing and demanding needs."
