CI Financial has concluded its six previously announced transactions, bringing its total US assets to $115bn.

The deals include the acquisition of four registered investment advisor (RIA) firms, namely, Columbia Pacific Wealth Management, RegentAtlantic Capital, Gofen & Glossberg, and R.H. Bluestein & Co.

These firms collectively add approximately $24bn assets to CI’s US private wealth business.

Additionally, CI closed the purchase of minority stakes in alternative investment firms Columbia Pacific Advisors (CPA) and GLAS Funds.

These transactions, closed by 31 December 2021, will enable the Canadian wealth manager to better serve high-net-worth (HNW) and ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) clients in the US.

Additionally, CI further bolsters its capabilities in alternative investments.
