About Us & AGFiQ ETFs

AGF Logo Icon

 

For 60 years, AGF has been providing asset management services to institutions, financial advisors and individual investors around the globe.

We set out to build a company that was innovative, focused on clients and driven by superior investment management. As the markets have changed, so too has our business. We have grown from our traditional mutual fund roots to an independent, globally diversified asset management firm. 

Today, we are diversified across our retail, institutional, alternative, high-net-worth and ETF businesses. And building on our history of innovation, AGF brings forth a value proposition that is unique with new and different strategy combinations powered by AGFiQ’s team of investment professionals.

About AGFiQ

We believe discipline makes the difference. Our suite of investment capabilities are powered by a multidisciplinary, intellectually diverse team that combines the complementary strengths of investment professionals from Highstreet Asset Management Inc. (a Canadian registered portfolio manager) and FFCM, LLC (an U.S. registered adviser) – a collaboration we call AGFiQ.

AGFiQ’s team approach is grounded in the belief that investment outcomes can be improved by assessing and targeting the factors that drive market returns. As such, our objective is to provide better risk-adjusted returns by utilizing a disciplined, multi-factor process, viewing risk through multiple lenses. We collectively understand that while quantitative, multi-factor approaches are a good start, it’s the people behind the strategies that really drives innovation. Through our differentiated approach, we aim to deliver quality solutions to advance wealth accumulation and preservation goals.
