TORONTO, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - AGF Funds Inc. (AGFFI), as Trustee and Manager,
announced today that AGF Managed Futures Fund will be terminated on November
Effective today, units of AGF Managed Futures Fund are no longer
available for purchase.
Prior to termination on November 9, 2007, unit holders of the fund have
the option to switch their investment to any of AGF's family of more than 50
mutual funds or to redeem their units. Any remaining assets on the termination
date will be invested, without sales charges, in units of AGF Canadian Money
AGF is encouraging unit holders to consult with their financial advisor
about their options to determine the solution that best meets their investment
needs and circumstances.
The combination of relatively low investor interest and lack of economies
of scale based on the small size of assets in the Fund led to the decision to
terminate the fund. Volatility in the commodities market, coupled with
changing consumer preferences, has resulted in relatively flat sales in this
market. The Fund, first launched in 1995, had less than $10 million in total
net assets as of July 31, 2007.
