When investing, experience and research coverage can make the difference.
The AGF Global Equity Team includes senior portfolio managers and investment professionals that have seen multiple investment scenarios and market cycles. Team analysts focused on Sector and Industry provide insights from a global perspective but also most importantly from a local market perspective. This local perspective and the ability to converse in the country's and business leadership's own language allows for AGF investment professionals to gain insights they would not obtain from reports and industry coverage sources. This kind of interaction on top of fundamental analysis is what makes the AGF difference.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing.

The All World Tax Advantage Group is a mutual fund corporation that currently offers approximately 20 different classes of securities. Investing in any of the classes within the group offers the following potential benefits and features: deferral of capital gains tax on transfers between classes, potential capital tax savings for corporate investors and fund diversification by investment style, geography and market capitalization. While the articles of AGF All World Tax Advantage Group Limited provide authority to make distributions out of capital and AGF All World Tax Advantage Group Limited intends both to calculate capital in the manner contemplated by the corporate statute for corporations that are not mutual fund corporations and only to declare distributions out of capital if there is sufficient capital attributable to a series, no definitive case law exists to confirm that a mutual fund corporation may make distributions of capital and how it is to be calculated. Further, no advance income tax ruling has been requested or obtained from Canada Revenue Agency, nor is AGF aware of any published advance income tax ruling or the possibility of obtaining such a ruling, regarding the characterization of such distributions or the calculation of capital for such purposes.
