Tony Genua, lead manager of five-star AGF Global Select, is both agile and selective in his investment approach, and has achieved category-beating returns by capitalizing on shifting economic trends and changing lifestyles. He zeroes in on companies with superior long-term earnings and sales growth, strong management and a proven ability to innovate.

“The idea of participating in market leaders is exciting to us,” says Genua, Toronto-based senior vice president and portfolio manager with AGF Management Ltd., who took charge of the fund in February 2013. He also manages various other U.S. growth equity portfolios at AGF, including bronze-rated AGF American Growth.

His style is “high conviction,” but he also maintains healthy portfolio diversification, holding between 25 and 40 names. Recently, the number of stocks stood at 37.
