OAKS, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/05/13 -- SEI (NASDAQ: SEIC) today
announced that it has been selected by Israel Discount Bank of New
York (IDB Bank) to provide end-to-end technology, operations, and
wealth management services through its single-infrastructure wealth
management solution, the SEI Wealth Platform(SM) (the Platform). IDB
Bank will convert its International Custody Division to the Platform.
IDB Bank's selection of SEI continues the growing momentum of the SEI

on the Platform during the first half of the year. SEI first
mentioned IDB as a new client during its first-quarter 2013 earnings
"IDB Bank's growth strategy and forward-looking goals make them a
perfect strategic partner for SEI and a natural fit for the SEI
Wealth Platform," said Al Chiaradonna, Senior Vice President, SEI
Wealth Platform. "IDB Bank's main objectives are to provide advanced
wealth management services to their clients by increasing
efficiencies and leveraging superior technology. We look forward to
helping IDB Bank achieve these goals and build their success for
years to come."
Once IDB Bank's conversion to the Platform is complete, SEI will
support all levels of its processing, investment management, and
end-client needs. IDB Bank pointed to the ability of the SEI Wealth
Platform to support multiple global wealth management affiliates on a
single infrastructure as a key differentiator in partner selection.
"We are very happy to announce our strategic partnership with SEI,"
said Robert Plante, COO and CIO of IDB Bank. "The combination of
multi-currency technology and operational support offered in the SEI
Wealth Platform will allow us to improve service to our clients and
gather more assets while increasing efficiency in our operations."
