Hermes Investment Management: Outcomes Beyond Performance

At Hermes, we are committed to delivering superior risk-adjusted investment returns to our clients. In addition to our financial targets, we understand that the way we achieve our investment objectives will have wider societal impacts. As such, we seek to provide both for a better financial future for our ultimate stakeholders, as well as for a better, more sustainable, society. The pursuit of “outcomes beyond performance” drives the execution of all of our strategies.

We achieve this goal through a holistic approach to investing that incorporates environmental, social and governance considerations into all of our investment products. Our ability to mitigate ESG risks and capture investment opportunities arising from these considerations is essential to achieving consistent investment outperformance for our clients.

Our heritage has enabled us to put this into practice since 1983 – firstly to manage the assets of the BT Pension Scheme (BTPS), and subsequently to offer our skills to a broad and fast-growing range of customers globally, from institutions to advised private investors. Our specialist, high conviction investment teams manage assets across equities, credit, infrastructure, private equity, private debt and real estate.

Critically, Hermes has one of the world’s largest stewardship resources of any fund manager in the world . Launched over 14 years ago, Hermes EOS provides a platform for like-minded investors to pool resources, creating a powerful force for positive change.

  • Illiquidity: understanding the premium in fixed-income markets download

    Years of low interest rates have prompted fixed-income investors to look beyond traditional sources of yield and consider whether illiquid assets can boost returns. But while this illiquidity premium is widely discussed and increasingly sought, it has been inadequately measured and investors lack an understanding of how it operates in different conditions.

  • Annual Impact Report, 2018

    In December 2017, we launched the Hermes Impact Opportunities Fund – a high-conviction global equity strategy with a bold objective. It aims to generate long-term outperformance by investing in companies succeeding in their core purpose: to generate value by creating positive and sustainable change that addresses the underserved needs of society and the environment.

  • Amplified: Reflections on the 2019 voting season weblink

    Climate change, AI ethics and data governance, and the US opioid epidemic were among investors’ biggest concerns during the 2019 voting season, with a number of significant shareholder resolutions. We spoke at several shareholder meetings as part of our engagement with companies.

  • Market Risk Insights: objective danger in the investment environment download

    Markets may have reached record peaks earlier this year, but the geopolitical environment is fraught and central-bank oxygen may not prop up asset prices for much longer. We expect more outbursts of pent-up volatility going forward as investors face up to the growing risks in this high-altitude market.

  • Salesforce: investing in a low-carbon future weblink

    Salesforce has cut its net greenhouse gas emissions to zero and delivered a carbon-neutral cloud. The company has attractive fundamentals and looks well placed to retain its position as one of the leading cloud-computing platforms.
