Investment Objectives

The Fund's objective is to provide superior returns with moderate risk through a combination of capital appreciation and interest income. The Fund uses an asset allocation approach. It invests primarily in a mix of shares of companies in countries and industries that are expected to have superior growth, bonds and short-term money market instruments.

Investment Strategy

To achieve these objectives, the Fund may invest in underlying funds managed by AGF or an AGF affiliate. The Fund uses an asset allocation approach to adjust its exposure across equities and fixed income. AGF has set, and will review quarterly, target dynamic allocations between global-oriented equity and fixed-income funds for the Fund, consistent with the Fund's investment objective.
