Why should I include AVI Global Trust into my portfolio?

AGT’s index agnostic approach allows for investments to be made in areas of the market that are often overlooked by other funds, typically due to their unconventional structures, size, or liquidity. These areas can include listed family holding companies and private equity, which over time, have been shown to deliver excess returns.

AGT’s unique approach of investing in holding companies, closed-ended funds and asset-backed special situations differentiates us from other funds, with portfolio holdings unlikely to be found elsewhere. Through these unconventional structures, AGT gains exposure to multiple underlying companies, providing both sector and geographic diversification benefits.

Through an unconstrained and unique investment philosophy, AGT has been able to outperform its comparator benchmark over the long run. Since 1985, AGT’s average annual performance has been 11.5% vs 9.0% for the benchmark

(View chart below) Over the past ten years, the ordinary dividends paid by AGT to shareholders have grown by more than 6.5 times. The level of income may vary due to the occasional receipt of large, one-off, special dividends from investee companies and it is for this reason that AGT has paid special dividends in the past few years. Naturally, there can be no guarantee that further special dividends will be paid in the future.
