The Merging Pools and their corresponding Continuing Funds provide a similar investment experience in that they all invest primarily in individual equity and fixed income securities of domestic and international issuers.

The Merging Portfolios and their corresponding Continuing Funds also provide a similar investment experience in that the Merging Portfolios only invest in the Merging Pools and the Continuing Funds invest in mutual funds and exchange traded funds that are primarily managed by AGF or an AGF affiliate.

“These Mergers will result in a more streamlined and simplified product line-up that is easier for investors to understand,” said Florence Narine, Senior Vice-President, Head of Product, AGF. “At the same time, the continuing funds will provide our clients with access to a portfolio of greater value, allowing for increased portfolio diversification opportunities.”
