AGF offers new funds on UCITS platform

AGF Investments has launched a Dublin-based UCITS fund family, supported by its first seed investors.

The company has also opened a representative office in London, England.
Offered through AGF Global Investment Series Fund plc, AGF's two UCITS sub-funds, AGF Global Core Equity Fund and AGF Emerging Markets All Cap Equity Fund, will be available throughout a range of registered jurisdictions, under the authorisation of the Central Bank of Ireland.
Funding from new European-based investors now totals USD65m for the AGF Global Core Equity Fund and USD425m for the AGF Emerging Markets All Cap Equity Fund.
Generally, the UCITS market represents approximately EUR6trn. AGF's new UCITS platform will allow AGF to market its fund offerings in new markets, and will allow AGF to diversify its global client base.
"AGF's new UCITS fund family is a key piece of infrastructure that supports our global growth ambitions," says Chris Boyle, senior vice-president, institutional, AGF Investments. "These products are highly regulated, equally versatile, and will enable us to target the largest possible group of global investors."
