UK – SEI Investments has appointed Marianne Gruver as director to its institutional team in London, with specific responsibility for the development of trustee directed products and solutions.

Gruver will work with SEI’s teams in the UK, Europe and South Africa and will report to both Jim Morris, global leader of trustee directed solutions, and Joe Ujobal, managing director of SEI in Europe.

The appointment is an in-house move from SEI in the US, where Gruver was instrumental in the development of the firm’s defined contribution platform and solution.

Gruver joins the team during a period of growth for the company in London, with over £100m (€161.5m) worth of mandates won in the first half of this year.
