CI Financial reports assets under management for May 2020

TORONTO (June 2, 2020) - CI Financial Corp. (“CI”) (TSX: CIX) today reported preliminary assets under management at May 31, 2020 of $121.0 billion and assets under administration of $51.0 billion, for total fee-earning assets of $172.0 billion.

In the month of May, CI’s assets under management increased by 1.8% and its Canadian assets under administration increased by 1.7%. Year over year, assets under management declined 5.6% while Canadian assets under administration improved 4.6%. Canadian assets under administration include the assets of Assante Wealth Management (Canada) Limited, CI Private Counsel LP, WealthBar Financial Services Inc. and Virtual Brokers.

CI’s U.S. wealth management business consists of assets held by two registered investment advisory firms, of which CI holds majority interests: One Capital Management LLC and Surevest LLC. CI’s interest in One Capital was finalized last month, bringing total U.S. assets under administration to $3.0 billion. Year-over-year data is not available due to the short period in which CI has held an interest in these businesses.

CI’s average assets under management for the quarter-to-date were $116.7 billion, compared to the average of $127.2 billion for the first quarter of 2020.

Further information about CI’s assets and financial position can be found below in the tables of statistics and on its website, www.cifinancial.com. These are the only statistics authorized by CI, and CI takes no responsibility for reporting by any external sources. Please note, the increased debt indicated in the chart below is a result of a $450 million debenture offering, which was completed on May 26, 2020.
