The pledge represents an aspiration of what Hermes wants to embody. Taken initially by every member of the Hermes Executive and Management Committees, the pledge is being rolled out to all Hermes staff.

Saker Nusseibeh, Chief Executive, Hermes Investment Management, said: “At Hermes we have a strong culture of responsibility, established long before it became fashionable in the industry. It is ingrained in our corporate DNA, and informs the way in which we behave as a firm and as individuals. Our new pledge is one way we are making clear our commitments, obligations and responsibilities, but of course, we expect to be judged by our deeds, not our words.”
