Our Story | 1990s

Eventually Everyone Retires

1990s | More Innovative Firsts

• AGF launches its Canadian Allocation Service

• A Canadian industry first, AGF China Focus Fund launches

• AGF launches the first fee-based wrap program from a Canadian fund company

• Warren Goldring wins the Canadian Mutual Fund Career Achievements Award

At AGF, we posed the question ‘What are you doing after work?’ because we wanted to underscore our commitment to help Canadians reach any destination, any goal or any dream throughout their lifetime.

1991 | Sustainable Investing
AGF Global Sustainable Growth Equity Fund, launched by Acuity Investments in December 1991, was one of the first sustainable investing funds in the world and the first in Canada to report its footprint.*

*Starting in September 2015, the Fund reports its environmental metrics on a quarterly basis. To find out more, visit AGF.com/SustainableInvesting.
1991 | Recognizing the Future

1991: AGF International Advisors Company Limited (AGFIA) opens in Dublin

1996: AGF Asset Management Asia Ltd opens in Singapore

RRSPs Go Global
Growth of the Foreign Content Limit

From 1990 to 1994 the foreign content limit grew to 20% from 10%. In the next decade it would be scrapped completely and the industry recognized the benefits of global diversification.

This is something that AGF has always understood. Global diversification is in our DNA and was the reason the Company was founded in 1957.

Our Global Equity team, led by Steve Way (who joined AGF in 1987 and is the longest tenured global equity manager in Canada), now manages retirement assets for both Canadian investors and institutional clients around the world.

The Next Generation

1997: Blake Goldring named President of AGF Management Limited
