Hermes strives to make a difference, not only through our investment solutions, but in how we contribute to our wider community through a diverse programme of grassroots projects.
Staff volunteer through our corporate programme or with other charities that are close to their hearts, taking part in lunchtime reading sessions with young people, renovating local schools and gardens, or supporting those more vulnerable within the London borough of Tower Hamlets, which is one of the most deprived communities in Western Europe and also right on our doorstep.
Other key projects include:
Mosaic strives to inspire young people from poorer communities to realise their talents and potential. It also aims to rehabilitate young offenders in prison.
Business in Community
Hermes is an active member of Business in Community, the Prince of Wales’ responsible business network. Members of the network tackle a wide range of issues that are essential to building a fairer society and a more sustainable future.
East End Community Foundation
The EECF has been dedicated to increasing opportunities for people living in London's East End for 25 years. Hermes is working with them on a number of initiatives to help raise educational achievement, enhance employability and increase social cohesion.
The 300 Club
The 300 Club, founded by our Chief Executive, Saker Nusseibeh, aims to challenge investment orthodoxy and improve the contribution of financial services to society as a whole.
