CI’s Asset Management business delivers $800 million in net sales for its best quarter in over six years

All financial amounts in Canadian dollars unless stated otherwise.

TORONTO, October 19, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CI Financial Corp. ("CI") (TSX: CIX, NYSE: CIXX) today reported preliminary assets under management as at September 30, 2021 of $146.6 billion and wealth management assets of $173.8 billion, for total assets of $320.4 billion.

On September 30, 2021, CI completed the previously announced acquisition of Portola Partners Group LLC, a Menlo Park, California-based registered investment advisor ("RIA") focused on serving ultra-high-net-worth families. The transaction added $6.7 billion to CI’s wealth management assets. On October 1, 2021, CI completed the acquisition of Budros, Ruhlin & Roe, Inc. ("BRR"), an RIA based in Columbus, Ohio, with approximately $4.4 billion in assets. CI’s reported assets as at September 30, 2021 do not include BRR.

CI also reported preliminary net sales results for its asset management businesses for the third quarter. CI had overall net sales of $0.8 billion, representing the second consecutive quarter of positive net flows and CI’s best net sales since the second quarter of 2015. CI’s net sales are now positive for the year-to-date 2021.

"CI’s net flows continue to strengthen, reaching their highest level in over six years," said Kurt MacAlpine, CI Chief Executive Officer. "This positive trend is led by our Canadian retail operations, where the modernization of our business has had a tremendous impact.

"The transformational changes we have made include moving from a multi-boutique asset management structure to a fully integrated global platform, completely revamping our sales and marketing model, incorporating data analytics into sales and other operations, and adopting a new, more robust approach to product development that has resulted in the introduction of a series of more relevant investment products. We believe these changes are directly responsible for the turnaround in the performance and sales of our Canadian Asset Management business."
