AGF Management Limited is a premier Canadian-based investment management firm serving institutions and individuals around the globe since 1957. Co-founded by C. Warren Goldring and Allan Manford, AGF began as a single, innovative idea: to pool the funds of Canadian investors to provide greater access to the U.S. market. The American Growth Fund, created in 1957, was the first mutual fund in Canada to invest solely in U.S. equities and its initials, AGF, became the company’s namesake. For nearly six decades, AGF has been providing asset management services to institutions and individuals around the globe, with operations and investments in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Asia. Today, under the leadership of Blake Goldring, AGF is one of the largest independent Canadian investment management firms providing services and products to more than one million investors with offices in Toronto and Montreal. In addition to Offices across Canada, AGF has international operations in Boston, London, Dublin, Hong Kong, Singapore and Beijing.
