Hunter Hall Australian Value Trust (AVT) is an ethically screened equities portfolio that invests in small and medium size companies trading at prices that are substantially less than Hunter Hall’s assessment of their intrinsic value. Hunter Hall implements the investment strategy of the Fund through a value investment methodology based on the fundamental analysis of individual stocks. The objective of the Fund is to outperform the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index (Small Ords) over the long term without incurring significant risk to capital.


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 may be harmful to people, animals or the environment.

The Fund 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 animal farming, animal testing for cosmetics, activities that give rise to human rights violations, unremediated destruction of the environment, uranium mining and nuclear reactors and fossil fuel exploration, production, refining, storage and transportation. Labour standards are considered but not systematically taken into account in the selection, retention or realisation of investments.
