AGF Investments’ lineup of QuantShares Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) has been renamed to AGFiQ ETFs to bring greater alignment across its brands.
The new name also reflects AGFiQ Asset Management, which launched in the US marketplace in April 2017. AGFiQ’s intellectually diverse multi-disciplined team combines the complementary strengths of investment professionals from Highstreet Asset Management Inc. and FFCM LLC.
AGFiQ’s team of investment professionals builds portfolios with an emphasis on factor-driven investing. The multi-factor approach allows for intelligent portfolio construction that provides opportunities for total return while also actively seeking to manage risk and the potential for losses.
There will be no changes to the investment objectives, strategies or management of these ETFs. The funds will begin trading under their new name on 30 October, 2017.
