CI Financial Corp. (“CI”) (TSX: CIX, NYSE: CIXX) today reported preliminary assets under management as at March 31, 2022 of $145.0 billion and wealth management assets of $224.7 billion, for total assets of $369.8 billion.

CI also reported preliminary net sales results for its asset management businesses for the first quarter of 2022. Overall, CI had net redemptions of $1.2 billion, with Canadian retail accounting for $0.9 billion of outflows.

“We continued to advance our corporate strategy in the first quarter,” said Kurt MacAlpine, CI Chief Executive Officer. “In U.S. wealth management, accomplishments included agreements to acquire two registered investment advisors that will add approximately $20.7 billion in client assets to CI Private Wealth. In Canadian wealth management, we agreed to acquire Northwood Family Office Ltd., the country’s foremost multi-family office, in a transaction that closed in early April. Northwood brings significant capabilities in serving the ultra-high-net-worth market.

“However, the spike in market volatility contributed to outflows in our asset management business,” Mr. MacAlpine said. “In the Canadian retail segment, our mutual fund flows improved significantly over the first quarter of 2021, with net redemptions declining by more than 50%. Our ETFs experienced outflows, primarily due to two thematic ETFs, the gold bullion and Ethereum mandates. Thematic ETFs generally tend to exhibit more volatility in their flows. Several fixed-income ETFs and funds also experienced redemptions as investors reacted to sharply rising interest rates.”
