Past performance is not a guarantee of future results
The chart takes the top quartile of UK Large Cap Equities managers based on 2004-2008 performance and tracks their
subsequent quartile rankings over the following 5-year period (2009-2013). It also identifies where the top quartile managers
over the current 5-year period (2009-2013) ranked in the previous 5-year period (2004-2008)
• Ranking managers by

SEI Core Fund
The objective of the Fund is to provide capital growth and income in line with global markets. The Fund invests across different asset classes to balance
income and growth.
Target allocation weights are set at the discretion of SEI and are subject to change. As at 30 June 2014
*The absolute return asset class aims to exploit active management opportunities that are not always accessible in conventional asset classes such as equity, fixed interest or cash.
This could involve, for example, investing in long and short positions, to help generate profits or protect capital in both rising and falling markets.
SEI does not show individual holdings information for third party funds.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. Investments in SEI Funds are generally medium to long term investments.
The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause
the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. Investors may not get back the original amount invested. SEI Funds may
use derivative instruments which may be used for hedging purposes and/or investment purposes. This investment may not be suitable for
everyone. If you should have any doubt whether it is suitable for you, you should obtain expert advice. This material represents an
assessment of the market environment at a specific point in time and is not intended to be a forecast of future events.

Important Information
SEI’s goals based strategies are available in both the SEI Strategic Portfolio Fund range and the SEI Goals Based Model range. The SEI Strategic
Portfolio Funds may invest in a combination of other SEI and Third-Party Funds as well as in additional manager pools based on asset classes.
These manager pools are pools of assets from the respective Strategic Portfolio separately managed by Portfolio Managers which are monitored
by SEI. One cannot directly invest in these manager pools. The SEI Goals Based Models may invest in a combination of SEI and Third-Party
Funds but do not invest in additional manager pools.
The risk described below may apply to the underlying assets of the products into which SEI’s Strategic Portfolios and Goals Based Models invest:
• Investment in equity securities in general are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time.
• Fixed income securities are subject to credit risk and may also be subject to price volatility and may be sensitive to interest rate fluctuations.
• Bond or money market instruments are sensitive to inflation rate trends.
• Property assets may be difficult to buy or sell and the impact may be that the cash remains un-invested or property is disposed at an
unfavourable price.
• Absolute return investments utilise aggressive investment techniques which may increase the volatility of returns. If the correlation between
absolute return investments and other asset classes within the fund increases, absolute return investments’ expected diversification benefits
may be decreased.
• International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavourable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally
accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations.
The SEI Strategic Portfolios and Goals Based Models are denominated in one currency but may hold assets priced in other currencies. The
performance of the Funds and Models may therefore rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
