AGF Changes Risk Rating of QuantShares Global Equity Rotation ETF

October 2, 2017 • Announcements

Effective today, AGF Investments Inc. (“AGF”) is changing the risk rating of QuantShares Global Equity Rotation ETF (the “QGL ETF”) from “low-to-medium” to “medium”.

This change results from compliance with the Canadian Securities Administrators’ Mutual Fund Risk Classification Methodology, which became effective on September 1, 2017.  Previously, AGF followed a risk classification methodology based on the approach recommended by The Investment Funds Institute of Canada. No material changes have been made to the investment objective, strategy or management of the QGL ETF.

The risk ratings for the other six QuantShares ETFs remain unchanged.

The methodology used by AGF to identify the risk rating of the QGL ETF is available upon request, at no cost, by calling 1-800-387-2563.

Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with an investment in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Please read the prospectus or relevant ETF Facts before investing. ETFs are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Units of ETFs are bought and sold at market price on a stock exchange and brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
