The Public Sector Pension Investment Board, alongside private equity firm Lightyear Capital, have completed the sale of Advisor Group Inc. to Reverence Capital Partners.

Since the partners acquired Advisor Group in May 2016, client assets under administration increased more than 73 per cent, from $157 billion to $272 billion. At the same time, the group grew from 5,200 financial advisors to more than 7,000, driven by strong recruiting and several acquisitions, according to a press release.
