  • The company agreed to acquire 21 registered investment advisor firms in 19 months since rolling out a new corporate strategy
  • Located in the city's Brickell district, the office will oversee the continued development of CI Private Wealth, the brand name for its U.S. platform
  • The firm's U.S. assets have reached 73 billion dollars and its total assets globally have grown to 254 billion dollars

CI Financial, a diversified global asset and wealth management company based in Toronto, has announced in a press release the establishment of its U.S. headquarters in Miami. Located in the city's Brickell district, the office will oversee the continued development of CI Private Wealth, the brand name for its U.S. platform.

The addition of a headquarters in Florida "follows CI’s rapid wealth management expansion in the U.S.", with the company agreeing to acquire 21 registered investment advisor firms in 19 months since rolling out a new corporate strategy.

During this period, its U.S. assets have reached 73 billion dollars and its total assets globally have grown to 254 billion dollars, up from 131 billion only 18 months ago. The asset manager has highlighted that this makes them "one of the fastest-growing asset and wealth management companies globally".

“Miami is an incredible place to establish our U.S. headquarters and support our fast-growing U.S. business. It serves as the next logical step for our expansion plans as we work to build the leading high-net-worth wealth management platform in the country. In addition, Miami is a vibrant, multicultural city that offers a deep talent pool, an attractive location for recruiting and a very business-friendly environment", said Kurt MacAlpine, Chief Executive Officer of CI Financial.

The office will be home to the firm's U.S. operations and the primary location for its U.S. leadership team but its executive officers will divide their time between Miami and Toronto. CI expects to expand its presence in Miami over time as it continues to execute against its U.S. corporate strategy.
