Business Week Recognizes SEI Investments as a 'Best Performer'

SEI Ranked Third Best-Performing Company in S&P's MidCap 400



Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from SEI Investments Company

    OAKS, Pa., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- SEI Investments Company (Nasdaq:   SEIC),
 the global provider of asset management and investment technology solutions,
 was named the number three best-performing company in Business Week's annual
 ranking of the top 50 companies in Standard & Poor's MidCap 400 index.  The
 annual ranking is part of "The Business Week Fifty," a special bonus issue on
 S&P stock performance.
     To select the best-performing companies in the S&P MidCap 400 index,
 Business Week ranked the stocks in the index by adding one- and three-year
 stock market performance, as of February 16, 2001.  SEI, number three on the
 list, had a one-year total return of 198.6% and a three-year total return of
 436.3%.
     Business Week also presented "12 key things to look for" in picking growth
 stocks.  In the article, SEI was used as an example for how to determine
 whether a company is making money relative to the capital invested in it.
 Pointed out was SEI's net income in 2000 of $99 million and capital of
 $169.5 million for a
     58% return on capital, which is, according to Business Week,
 "extraordinarily high, even considering that service businesses operate on
 less capital than, say, manufacturers."  Business Week notes that the return
 on capital for the S&P 500 is less than 10%.
     Ranking results appeared in Business Week's Spring 2001 special bonus
 issue.  Data was calculated by COMPUSTAT, provided by Standard & Poor's
 Institutional Market Services.
 
     SEI Investments is a leading global provider of asset management and
 investment technology solutions.  The company's innovative solutions help
 corporations, financial institutions, financial advisors, and affluent
 families create and manage wealth.  SEI processes over $1.5 trillion of
 investment transactions daily, administers (as of 12/31/00) more than
 $270 billion in mutual fund and pooled assets, manages more than $76 billion
 in assets, and operates 25 offices in 11 countries.
