When you step into SEI - anywhere in the world - you know you're not inside a traditional financial services company. We have no offices.

We are a place to inspire your work, build your voice, and grow your community. We're different. And we're proud of it.

To do this, you will assist accounting teams with trade discrepancies on a daily and monthly basis. You will also review trade and collateral documentation and ensure accurate and timely reporting of activity is complete.

You will communicate with investment managers, trading counterparties and internal accounting teams to resolve open issues and questions, reaching out to internal technology support and vendor support when necessary to resolve any production issues or system support queries.

We want you to succeed and look for future solutions! Through attending and participating in various IMS and corporate professional development sessions, you will acquire the tools to identify processes across the division and organization. You will have the opportunity to partner with a diverse team and grow your career.

Attributes we value:
