Engagement Policy - Hermes actively engages with the firms it invests in and is currently developing an Engagement Policy which will appear here soon. For information on Hermes’ approach to engagement and stewardship please see Hermes Approach to Stewardship.
Hermes Equity Ownership Services (“Hermes EOS”) provides proxy advisor services. Hermes EOS is supportive towards the Best Practice Principles for Shareholder Voting Research but has not formally signed up to this code while it is being revised.
Hermes EOS has been working towards alignment with the Principles and plans to become a Signatory once the updated version is published. We will deliver a report on our application of the Principles shortly thereafter.
