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.
