“While economic uncertainty and heightened market volatility affected sales and asset levels across our industry during the quarter, CI made excellent progress in executing on our strategic priorities,” said Kurt MacAlpine, CI Chief Executive Officer. “In asset management, this included the continued enhancement of our product lineup with the launch of a private infrastructure investment fund and three ETFs. Additionally, CI joint venture Axia Real Assets launched a new US real estate fund through a private placement.

“In wealth management, we closed the acquisitions of Northwood Family Office Ltd. in Canada and Corient Capital Partners, LLC and Galapagos Partners, LP in the United States,” said Mr. MacAlpine. “We have also prioritized initiatives to achieve synergies and promote organic growth throughout the US wealth business, with one example being our application for a trust company charter.”
