IN RE: SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB (In Organization)
Oaks, Pennsylvania
Application for Federal Deposit Insurance (Savings Association Insurance Fund)

STATEMENT

Pursuant to the provision of Section 5 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1815), an application for Federal deposit insurance with membership in the Savings Association Insurance Fund has been filed on behalf of SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB, a proposed new Federal savings bank to be located at One Freedom Valley Drive, Oaks, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of SEI Investments Company, a global asset management company and one of the leading providers of trust technology, processing services and back-office functions to bank trust departments. Upon receipt of the necessary approvals, SEI Investments Company proposes to transfer substantially all of the ongoing custody and trust operations from its existing subsidiary, SEI Trust Company, to SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB. SEI Trust Company is a non-insured trust company chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that provides custodial services and back-office accounting to trust companies and bank trust departments. It also serves as independent trustee and custodian to employee benefit plans and provides custody and administrative services to registered investment advisors and their clients, typically high net worth individuals

Going forward, SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB will continue substantially all of the operations currently engaged in by SEI Trust Company, providing trust and trust-related services primarily to middle and high-income individuals, and to a lesser extent, high and ultra-high net worth individuals and institutions. SEI Trust Company will then operate in a limited capacity, primarily acting as trustee for four collective investment funds holding guaranteed investment contracts.

SEI Federal Trust Company, FSB proposes to operate from SEI Investments Company's main office in Oaks, Pennsylvania and from a trust office in Wilmington, Delaware. Nonetheless, it does not intend to serve a particular region or geographic area. It will serve a nationwide customer base, including existing clients of SEI Investments Company.

For the purposes of this proposal, the investment in fixed assets is reasonable, capital is adequate, future earnings prospects are favorable, and management is considered satisfactory. No formal objections to this application have been filed with the FDIC. Corporate powers to be exercised are consistent with the purpose of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. No undue risk to the Savings Association Insurance Fund is apparent.

Accordingly, based upon careful evaluation of all available facts and information, the Associate Director, acting under delegated authority, has concluded that approval of the application is warranted, subject to the conditions enumerated in the ORDER.
