Ethical Investing Overview
Hunter Hall is committed to the concept of responsible investing and was one of the first investment managers in Australia to incorporate an ethical investment policy into its investment process. Hunter Hall is one of the largest dedicated ethical managers in Australia and, over the years, has built a reputation as a thought leader in responsible investment.
Hunter Hall applies a variety of responsible investment policies across different funds. The most dominant is Hunter Hall's negative screening policy which is applied to all our retail funds. We use negative screens to screen out stocks that, in our opinion, are harmful to people, destructive to the environment or cruel to animals. In practice this means no direct and material involvement in; armaments, tobacco, gambling, factory farming, logging of old growth forests, uranium mining and fossil fuel. Find out more.
Hunter Hall is also committed to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and participates in a range of sustainability-related activities. Further information can be found in the Sustainability Report
"The most important task that this generation faces is the battle to cause humanity to act rationally to reduce our "take" of the planet’s resources. It is a huge job and one that we have only just begun. But it is within our capacity and must be completed if we are to have a world that retains its beauty, diversity and capacity to support lives worth living."
