PORTFOLIO TURNOVER <p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 56% of the average value of its portfolio.</font> </p> 0.56 Principal Investment Strategies <p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">Under normal circumstances, the International Equity Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities. Equity securities may include common stocks, preferred stock, warrants and depositary receipts. The Fund will invest primarily in equity securities of issuers of all capitalization ranges that are located in at least three countries other than the U.S. It is expected that at least 40% of the Fund's assets will be invested outside the U.S. The Fund will invest primarily in companies located in developed countries, but may also invest in companies located in emerging markets. Generally, the Fund will invest less than 20% of its assets in emerging markets. Emerging market countries are those countries that are: (i) characterized as developing or emerging by any of the World Bank, the United Nations, the International Finance Corporation, or the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; (ii) included in an emerging markets index by a recognized index provider; or (iii) countries with similar developing or emerging characteristics as countries classified as emerging market countries pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) and (ii) above, in each case determined at the time of purchase.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying upon a number of sub-advisers (each, a Sub-Adviser and collectively, the Sub-Advisers) with differing investment philosophies to manage portions of the Fund's portfolio under the general supervision of SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC), the Fund's adviser.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may invest in futures contracts, forward contracts and options for hedging purposes, including seeking to manage the Fund's currency exposure to foreign securities and mitigate the Fund's overall risk.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may purchase shares of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to gain exposure to a particular portion of the market while awaiting an opportunity to purchase securities or other instruments directly.</font> </p> EXAMPLE <p align="left" style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods.

The Fund will invest primarily in investment grade foreign government and corporate fixed income securities, as well as foreign mortgage-backed and/or asset-backed fixed income securities, of issuers located in at least three countries other than the U.S. It is expected that at least 40% of the Fund's assets will be invested in non-U.S. securities. Other fixed income securities in which the Fund may invest include: (i) securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government and its agencies and instrumentalities and obligations of U.S. commercial banks, such as certificates of deposit, time deposits, bankers' acceptances and bank notes; and (ii) U.S. corporate debt securities and mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities. The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying upon a number of sub-advisers (each, a Sub-Adviser and collectively, the Sub-Advisers) with differing investment philosophies to manage portions of the Fund's portfolio under the general supervision of SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC), the Fund's adviser. In selecting investments for the Fund, the Sub-Advisers choose securities issued by corporations and governments located in various countries, looking for opportunities to achieve capital appreciation and gain, as well as current income. There are no restrictions on the Fund's average portfolio maturity or on the maturity of any specific security.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Sub-Advisers may seek to enhance the Fund's return by actively managing the Fund's foreign currency exposure. In managing the Fund's currency exposure, the Sub-Advisers buy and sell currencies (</font><font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;"><i>i.e.</i></font><font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">, take long or short positions) using derivatives, principally futures and foreign currency forward contracts. The Fund may take long and short positions in foreign currencies in excess of the value of the Fund's assets denominated in a particular currency or when the Fund does not own assets denominated in that currency. The Fund may also engage in currency transactions in an attempt to take advantage of certain inefficiencies in the currency exchange market, to increase its exposure to a foreign currency or to shift exposure to foreign currency fluctuations from one currency to another. In managing the Fund's currency exposure for foreign securities, the Sub-Advisers may buy and sell currencies for hedging or for speculative purposes.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may also invest in futures contracts, forward contracts and swaps for speculative or hedging purposes. Futures, forwards and swaps are used to synthetically obtain exposure to the securities identified above or baskets of such securities and to manage the Fund's interest rate duration and yield curve exposure. These derivatives are also used to mitigate the Fund's overall level of risk and/or the Fund's risk to particular types of securities, currencies or market segments. Interest rate swaps are further used to manage the Fund's yield spread sensitivity. When the Fund seeks to take an active long or short position with respect to the likelihood of an event of default of a security or basket of securities, the Fund may use credit default swaps. The Fund may buy credit default swaps in an attempt to manage credit risk where the Fund has credit exposure to an issuer and the Fund may sell credit default swaps to more efficiently gain credit exposure to such security or basket of securities.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund will also invest in securities rated below investment grade (junk bonds).

The Fund will invest in debt securities of government, government-related and corporate issuers in emerging market countries, as well as entities organized to restructure the outstanding debt of such issuers. The Fund may obtain its exposures by investing directly (e.g., in fixed income securities and other instruments) or indirectly/synthetically (e.g,, through the use of derivative instruments, principally futures contracts, forward contracts, swaps, including fully funded total return swaps, and structured securities, such as credit-linked notes). Emerging market countries are those countries that are: (i) characterized as developing or emerging by any of the World Bank, the United Nations, the International Finance Corporation, or the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; (ii) included in an emerging markets index by a recognized index provider; or (iii) countries with similar developing or emerging characteristics as countries classified as emerging market countries pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) and (ii) above, in each case determined at the time of purchase.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying upon a number of sub-advisers (each, a Sub-Adviser and collectively, the Sub-Advisers) with differing investment philosophies to manage portions of the Fund's portfolio under the general supervision of SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC), the Fund's adviser. The Sub-Advisers will spread the Fund's holdings across a number of countries and industries to limit its exposure to a single emerging market economy and may not invest more than 25% of its assets in any single country. There are no restrictions on the Fund's average portfolio maturity or on the maturity of any specific security. There is no minimum rating standard for the Fund's securities, and the Fund's securities will generally be in the lower or lowest rating categories (including those below the fourth highest rating category by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO), commonly referred to as junk bonds).</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Sub-Advisers may seek to enhance the Fund's return by actively managing the Fund's foreign currency exposure.

The Fund may take long and short positions in foreign currencies in excess of the value of the Fund's assets denominated in a particular currency or when the Fund does not own assets denominated in that currency. The Fund may also engage in currency transactions in an attempt to take advantage of certain inefficiencies in the currency exchange market, to increase its exposure to a foreign currency or to shift exposure to foreign currency fluctuations from one currency to another. In managing the Fund's currency exposure for foreign securities, the Sub-Advisers may buy and sell currencies for hedging or for speculative purposes.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may purchase shares of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to gain exposure to a particular portion of the market while awaiting an opportunity to purchase securities or other instruments directly.</font> </p> EXAMPLE <p align="left" style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.

Equity securities may include common stocks, preferred stock, warrants and depositary receipts. The Fund will invest primarily in equity securities of issuers of all capitalization ranges that are located in at least three countries other than the U.S. It is expected that at least 40% of the Fund's assets will be invested outside the U.S. The Fund will invest primarily in companies located in developed countries, but may also invest in companies located in emerging markets. Generally, the Fund will invest less than 20% of its assets in emerging markets. Emerging market countries are those countries that are: (i) characterized as developing or emerging by any of the World Bank, the United Nations, the International Finance Corporation, or the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; (ii) included in an emerging markets index by a recognized index provider; or (iii) countries with similar developing or emerging characteristics as countries classified as emerging market countries pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) and (ii) above, in each case determined at the time of purchase.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying upon a number of sub-advisers (each, a Sub-Adviser and collectively, the Sub-Advisers) with differing investment philosophies to manage portions of the Fund's portfolio under the general supervision of SEI Investments Management Corporation (SIMC), the Fund's adviser.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may invest in futures contracts, forward contracts and options for hedging purposes, including seeking to manage the Fund's currency exposure to foreign securities and mitigate the Fund's overall risk.</font> </p> <br/><p style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;" align="left"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">The Fund may purchase shares of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to gain exposure to a particular portion of the market while awaiting an opportunity to purchase securities or other instruments directly.</font> </p> EXAMPLE <p align="left" style="margin:0pt 0pt 6pt 0pt;"> <font style="font-size:10pt; font-family: Arial, Helvetica;">This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
