Performance

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investment fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in share or unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Distributions

The payment of distributions should not be confused with a fund's performance, rate of return or yield. If distributions paid by the fund are greater than the performance of the fund, your original investment with shrink. Distributions paid as a result of capital gains realized by a fund, and income and dividends earned by a fund are taxable in your hands in the year they are paid. Your adjusted cost base will be reduced by the amount of any return of capital. If your adjusted cost base falls below zero, you will have to pay capital gains tax on the amount below zero.

Management Expense Ratio (MER)

AGF may, in its discretion, temporarily waive some or all of the expenses of the Fund, which will result in a reduction in the MER. AGF may cease to offer any such waiver at any time without notice.

Foreign Currency

Investments denominated in foreign currencies are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates, which may have an adverse affect on the value of the investments, sale proceeds, and on dividend or. interest income. Investors may not necessarily recoup the full value of their original investment.

Unclaimed Property

The British Columbia Unclaimed Property Act, the Alberta Unclaimed Personal Property & Vested Property Act, the Quebec Public Curator Act and the New Brunswick Unclaimed Property Act set out specific responsibilities for the administration of unclaimed property if the last known address of the owner of the property was in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec or New Brunswick. The legislation is designed to ensure that all reasonable effort is made to return unclaimed property to its owner.

AGF has the following procedures in place with respect to re-uniting owners with unclaimed property.

AGF sells its mutual funds through a distribution network of financial advisors who in turn sell to the public. Therefore, when AGF is trying to reach a client, the distribution network will be utilized.

If an item of mail is returned, AGF will suspend all future mailings, until notified of the new address.

On an annual basis, AGF runs a report of all accounts with an invalid or incomplete address and contacts the financial advisor requesting the updated address.

If you believe you have unclaimed property at AGF, please call 1-800-520-0620.
