BOSTON, Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AGF Investments America Inc. today announced the launch of AGF Emerging Markets Equity Fund in the United States, a mutual fund providing U.S. institutional investors with access to its emerging markets equity strategy.
“There is strong demand for active emerging markets equity strategies,” said Florence Narine, Senior Vice-President, Head of Product. “To meet this demand in the U.S., we are now providing institutional investors in the United States with access to a strategy that demonstrates AGF Investments tenure and strength in actively managed emerging markets and global equities space.”Demand for emerging markets is expected to increase in 2020. According to *Greenwich Associates, U.S. institutional investors are expecting to make new allocations of +US$19.7bn to Emerging Markets Equity over the next 12 months; more than for any other international equity category. With approximately US$1.5 billion under management as of December 31, 2019, AGF Investments’ Emerging Market Equity Strategy provides investors with access to emerging markets by investing in equities of companies operating in emerging markets countries with a fundamental, bottom-up investment style and top-down country allocation framework.
