The Award recognizes AGF's ongoing marketing campaign, Rethink Risk. Launched in November 2013, Rethink Risk was developed to help advisors educate their clients so that they are better informed and become active participants in their investment success.
Emphasis on risk and downside protection are cornerstones of our investment philosophy and were the foundation on which the campaign was designed.

With campaigns like Rethink Risk, we are helping investors make more informed investment decisions," said Gordon Forrester, Executive Vice-President, Product and Marketing and Head of Retail, AGF Investments Inc.
