The Hunter Hall Value Growth Trust (VGT) is principally invested in an ethically screened portfolio of global equities. The objective of the VGT is to increase the wealth of its investors by substantially outperforming the global stockmarkets, benchmarked by the MSCI World Total Return Index, Net Dividends Reinvested, in Australian Dollars (MSCI World), over the medium to 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 Hunter Hall Value Growth 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 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.
