Our goals is to achieve attractive long-term returns by:
AVI Global Trust plc
Established in 1889, the Company’s investment objective is to achieve capital growth through a focused portfolio of investments, particularly in companies whose shares stand at a discount to estimated underlying net asset value. The Company has followed AVI’s distinct investment style since 1985 to achieve superior long term returns.
AVI Japan Opportunity Trust
AVI Japan Opportunity Trust (“A JOT” or “the Company”) invests in a focussed portfolio of over-capitalised small-cap Japanese equities. Asset Value Investors will leverage its three decades of experience investing in asset-backed companies to engage with company management and help to unlock value in this under-researched area of the market.
AVI Family Holding Companies Fund
The AVI Family Holding Companies Fund (the “Fund”) is an Irish Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Fund (QIAIF). The Fund invests into listed family-backed holding companies globally taking advantage of the inefficiencies in holding company structures.
AVI was established in 1985 to manage the assets of one of the oldest listed investment companies in London. Our distinctive approach of investing in family-controlled holding companies, closed-end funds and asset back situations is still a unique combination over 35 years later.
Today AVI manages over £1.2bn across all its products.
AVI strives to identify valuation anomalies and focusing on investing where the market price does not reflect the estimated intrinsic value.
Our aim is to deliver long-term return returns with relatively low volatility by:
