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

What we do

Home / What we do

We offer actively managed public and private markets solutions to investors across the globe and, in Hermes EOS, have one of the world’s largest stewardship resources.

Our public markets capabilities include:

  • High active share equities with regional or global exposure
  • Specialist credit

Our private markets expertise includes:

Our heritage as investment manager of the BT Pension Scheme, one of the UK’s largest corporate pension schemes, provides us with deep insight into the needs of long-term investors. For all of our clients, our goal is to deliver:

  • Strong long term investment performance through market cycles
  • Access to rare opportunities that investors would be unlikely to find elsewhere, such as unique private equity deals and prestigious infrastructure investments
  • Stewardship of all assets that we manage

Integrating stewardship into our investment strategies

We believe that we have a duty that extends beyond achieving financial outcomes: that we must act as stewards of the investments we manage and advise. We established Hermes EOS, one of the world’s largest stewardship teams, in 2004. Today Hermes EOS advises on £261.2 billion1 and counts some of the world’s leading pension funds as clients.

We do this because we believe it is right for investors and right for society. We believe better governed companies deliver better returns and create a better society in which investors live. We are involved in many of the world’s leading stewardship organisations and advocate investors' interests in public policy debates.

Putting our clients first

Our specialist investment teams are supported by a robust and transparent risk framework that is overseen by our independent Investment Office. The Investment Office, which reports directly to our Chief Executive, is responsible for:

  • Ensuring managers always act in our clients’ interests
  • Providing independent performance and risk oversight
  • Monitoring liquidity and determining strategy capacity levels
