Overview

Hunter Hall Australian Value Trust (AVT) is principally invested in an ethically screened portfolio of domestic small capitalisation equities. The objective of the AVT is to increase the wealth of its investors by substantially outperforming the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index (Small Ords), over the medium to long term without incurring significant risk to capital.


Description


Hunter Hall is committed to the concept of responsible investing and seeks to avoid investing in businesses that are, in its opinion, involved in activities that are harmful to people, animals or the environment.

The Trust utilises a negative screening process which seeks to avoid investment in companies that derive operating revenues from direct and material business involvement in: the manufacture or sale of weapons and weapons components, tobacco manufacture, gambling outlets or systems, intensive farming, animal testing for cosmetics, activities that give rise to human rights violations, uremediated destruction of the environment, uranium mining and nuclear reactors and fossil fuel exploration production, refining, storage and transportation. Labour standards ae considered but systematically taken into account in the selection, retention or realisation of investments.
