Preferred Pricing

With AGF preferred pricing, qualified investors can access a broad range of AGF investment options, at a lower cost.

 

 

Overview

Qualified investors can access preferred pricing from a broad range of AGF investment. Investors simply place or maintain a minimum of $100,000 per fund in each account or $250,000 in aggregate when combining household assets from family members residing at the same address.

For AGF Gold Label, management fees (for Series Q and W) as well as advisory service fees (for Series Q only) will be taken out directly from client accounts and documented in client statements. For other embedded fee series, a discount is provided in the form of a management fee rebate that is deposited directly into client accounts in the form of units or shares.

Benefits

  • Easily accessible - Preferred pricing at low introductory minimums with the ability to qualify through household account aggregation.
  • Growth Rewards - Tiered management fees that offer further reductions at $250,000, $500,000, $1 million and $3 million asset levels.
  • Wide Selection - A broad range of investment solutions, including corporate class options, are available across all mutual funds and portfolios

Fee Savings with Preferred Pricing after One-Year Based on a $250,000 Investment

 This chart illustrates the potential benefits that preferred pricing can offer.

For illustrative purposes only. Assumptions: Based on an initial investment of $250,000. Regular Fund MER is equal to 2.25% based on the average Series A equity fund MER (Source: Morningstar), preferred pricing fee takes into account the fee level for $200,000 in investible assets (0.90%) including the advisory fee portion equal to 1.00% both are consistent with what would be charged on an equity fund. The illustration shows what the savings would be over the course of one year without factoring in additional investments or growth in the overall investment.

How it Works

Investors must place and maintain either:

  1. A minimum of $100,000 per fund (in each account) OR
  2. Aggregate household assets of $250,000

As investors continue to grow and accumulate wealth AGF preferred pricing solutions provide additional opportunities for fee savings.
