Following the special meetings of securityholders, AGF Investments Inc. (AGF Investments) today announced that securityholders approved a resolution to adopt the fixed rate annual administration fee to replace certain operating expenses of each applicable series of the Funds.

Each series other than Series O, Q, W, and ETF Series of each Fund currently pays a management fee, an administration fee relating to registrar and transfer agency services (the “Transfer Agency Administration Fee”) and other operating expenses, which make up a large portion of the management expense ratio (the “MER”) of the Fund. The MER is expressed as an annual percentage of the total net asset value of the Fund. While investors do not pay the management fee, the Transfer Agency Administration Fee and operating expenses directly, these affect investors because they reduce the returns of the Fund.

As a result of the resolution, AGF Investments will now pay for all the operating expenses (the “Operating Expenses”) of each Fund other than “Certain Fund Costs” in exchange for the payment by the Fund of an annual fixed rate administration fee (the “Administration Fee”) with respect to each series of the Fund, and in return, the Transfer Agency Administration Fee will be eliminated.

The administration fee proposal is expected to be implemented on or about October 1, 2024, or such later date as AGF Investments may consider more appropriate.
