We permit the publication of our auditors’ report, provided the report is published in full only and is accompanied by the full financial statements to which our auditors’ report relates, and is only published on an access-controlled page on your website, to enable users to verify that an auditors’ report by independent accountants has been commissioned by the directors and issued. Such permission to publish is given by us without accepting or assuming any responsibility or liability to any third party users save where we have agreed terms with them in writing.

Our consent is given on condition that before any third party accesses our auditors’ report via the webpage they first document their agreement to the following terms of access to our report via a click-through webpage with an 'I accept' button. The terms to be included on your website are as follows:

I accept and agree for and on behalf of myself and the Trust I represent (each a "recipient") that:

  1. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) accepts no liability (including liability for negligence) to each recipient in relation to PwC’s report. The report is provided to each recipient for information purposes only. If a recipient relies on PwC’s report, it does so entirely at its own risk;
  2. No recipient will bring a claim against PwC which relates to the access to the report by a recipient;
  3. Neither PwC’s report, nor information obtained from it, may be made available to anyone else without PwC’s prior written consent, except where required by law or regulation; and
  4. PwC’s report was prepared with Hermes Property Unit Trust's interests in mind. It was not prepared with any recipient's interests in mind or for its use. PwC’s report is not a substitute for any enquiries that a recipient should make. The financial statements are as at 25 March 2017, and thus PwC’s auditors’ report is based on historical information. Any projection of such information or PwC’s opinion thereon to future periods is subject to the risk that changes may occur after the reports are issued and the description of controls may no longer accurately portray the system of internal control. For these reasons, such projection of information to future periods would be inappropriate.
  5. PwC will be entitled to the benefit of and to enforce these terms.
I accept

Obiettivo: Garantire rendimenti attraverso accordi di finanziamento di lungo termine

"La strategia European Direct Lending mira a offrire ai nostri investitori una sovraperformance costante attraverso prestiti ad aziende in crescita e interessanti, con l’obiettivo di preservare il capitale e ottenere rendimenti."

Patrick Marshall, Head of Private Debt e CLOs

Perché investire nella strategia European Direct Lending di Hermes?

  • Attenzione posta sulla qualità: accesso ai rendimenti stabili e a bassa correlazione offerti dai senior secured loans concessi ad aziende europee e britanniche di fascia media.
  • Concentrazione sulle PMI europee: flessibilità di investimento in tutta Europa.
  • Solida origination: gli accordi di origination con le banche europee, insieme ai contatti che il team dispone nel mercato dei prestiti, forniscono un flusso costante di opportunità di investimento di alta qualità.
  • Esperienza lungo l’intero ciclo: il team vanta 76 anni di esperienza negli investimenti, durante i quali ha operato con successo strutturazioni, sottoscrizioni, monitoraggi e ristrutturazioni di prestiti.
  • Protezione dal tasso di inflazione: i pagamenti delle cedole dei senior secured bonds si muovono in sincronia con i tassi di interesse, preservando il valore nei periodi di inflazione e fornendo un rendimento di base quando i tassi sono bassi.
  • Opportunità durature: le banche continuano a prendere le distanze dal mercato dei prestiti alle imprese, permettendo ai direct lender di collaborare con aziende di fascia media - un cambiamento sostenuto dai governi europei.
