Company Overview

Business Description
Hunter Hall International (HHL) is engaged in an investment management business operating through wholly owned subsidiaries. HHL currently manages four investment trusts and Australian Equities Fund, which applies an Ethical Investment Policy.
Strategy Analysis
HHL's objective is to develop a small premium quality investment and savings institution with a focus on international equities. The main challenge is to scale up a largely successful investment process which previously depended on the stockpicking talents of Executive Chairman Peter Hall. HHL has installed a more rigorous risk management and research process, has reduced portfolio concentration and has appointed a chief investment officer. The strategy is to increase FUM in the unlisted vehicles by using strong investment performance to attract net inflows. HHL's strategy for listed investment company Hunter Hall Global Value is to generate good investment returns and build assets so that HHV becomes the international equivalent of Argo Investments and Australian Foundation Investment Company. The company is working to improve the ratings of its products and to increase advertising, marketing and distribution activity. Hunter Hall Int. reported NPAT of $12.34m for the year ended 30 June 2011. Revenue from ordinary activities were $41.9m. Diluted EPS was 45.55 cents compared to nil cents last year. The final dividend declared was 21.1 cents, taking the full year dividend to 44.9 cents compared with nil cents last year.
