CI Financial Corp. (“CI”) (TSX: CIX, NYSE: CIXX) today released record financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“It was another record financial quarter for CI and included a new all-time high for asset levels and the best net flows in our asset management business in over six years – reflecting the successful ongoing transformation of our company,” said Kurt MacAlpine, CI Chief Executive Officer. “CI is $126 billion larger, much more diversified by business line, geography, and product category and more competitive than it was just one year ago.

“In U.S. wealth management, we are seeing many of the country’s largest and most successful registered investment advisors choosing to join CI, attracted by the exceptional businesses we have in place and our vision for a national platform. These include firms dedicated to serving high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families across the U.S. Including all recently announced transactions, our U.S. wealth business will exceed US$98 billion, up from zero at the start of 2020.

“In asset management, our flows continue to strengthen, with net sales of $821 million representing a major turnaround from a year earlier,” Mr. MacAlpine said. “We believe this success stems from the execution of our strategy to modernize this business, which has included integrating our boutique portfolio management teams into a single global investment platform, hiring our first-ever head of investment management, Marc-André Lewis, to lead that team, and the reorganization of our sales and marketing function supported by the adoption of advanced analytics.

“Additionally, we have launched a series of timely new products that have resonated with advisors and investors and attracted considerable assets. In the third quarter, we were very active in product development, building out our lineup with new ETFs, liquid alternative funds, and ESG mandates.”

Important information about mutual funds and ETFs is contained in their respective prospectus. Mutual funds and ETFs are not guaranteed; their values change frequently, and past performance may not be repeated. You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of an ETF on recognized Canadian exchanges. If the units are purchased or sold on these Canadian exchanges, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of the ETF and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning anticipated future events, results, circumstances, performance or expectations with respect to CI Financial Corp. (“CI”) and its products and services, including its business operations, strategy and financial performance and condition. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “believe”, “expect”, “foresee”, “forecast”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “estimate”, “goal”, “plan” and “project” and similar references to future periods, or conditional verbs such as “will”, “may”, “should”, “could” or “would”. These statements are not historical facts but instead represent management beliefs regarding future events, many of which by their nature are inherently uncertain and beyond management’s control. Although management believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements involve risks and uncertainties. The material factors and assumptions applied in reaching the conclusions contained in these forward-looking statements include that the acquisitions of McCutchen Group, R.H. Bluestein, Gofen and Glossberg, and GLAS Funds will be completed and their asset levels will remain stable, that the investment fund industry will remain stable and that interest rates will remain relatively stable. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations include, among other things, general economic and market conditions, including interest and foreign exchange rates, global financial markets, changes in government regulations or in tax laws, industry competition, technological developments and other factors described or discussed in CI’s disclosure materials filed with applicable securities regulatory authorities from time to time. The foregoing list is not exhaustive and the reader is cautioned to consider these and other factors carefully and not to place undue reliance on forward- looking statements. Other than as specifically required by applicable law, CI undertakes no obligation to update or alter any forward-looking statement after the date on which it is made, whether to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.
