    TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - AGF Funds Inc. announced that, effective today,
Ridgewood Capital Asset Management Inc. ("Ridgewood") is replacing Mulvihill
Capital Management Inc. ("Mulvihill") as one of the portfolio managers of the

asset program.
    Ridgewood has acquired Mulvihill's institutional and wealth management
divisions and assumed management of the growth portion of the Harmony Canadian

Paul Meyer, formerly the Senior Vice President and Vice President, Equities,
respectively of Mulvihill. Ridgewood is providing investment counseling and

offering seven distinct portfolios and six investment pools (in the trust
structure) managed by leading institutional portfolio managers.
