The Europe chief executive of SEI Investments, part of the US-based group, is going to leave next year, this publication can exclusively report.

Brett Williams, CEO of SEI Investments Europe Limited (SIEL) and head of its UK private banking business, will be retiring in June 2023, a spokesperson for the firm told this publication when asked about the matter.

"We have begun our search for a new CEO of SIEL, and Brett will remain in place in this role until the transition. As always, we remain committed to delivering world-class service and solutions to our clients," the spokesperson said.
