Flexible, tailored access
Our objective is to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns, whilst at the same time offering investors significant flexibility to create portfolios tailored to meet specific performance targets.
Infrastructure is an attractive asset class for institutional investors seeking long-term, inflation-linked stable cash flows. It is a very good fit, in particular, for pension funds with long-term liabilities. However, it is not a homogenous asset class, and has a correspondingly wide range of risk/return scenarios for investors to consider.
We offer clients the opportunity to choose between two separate investment strategies, Core and Value Added, each with its own competitive risk-related fee structure. Our aim is to provide investors with the flexibility to allocate funds in line with their own risk/reward objectives and to build a bespoke infrastructure portfolio via a single investment decision.
As well as managing the direct infrastructure programme on behalf of the BT Pension Scheme, we manage pooled infrastructure funds and co-investment vehicles on behalf of other UK, European, Asian, Middle Eastern and Australian public and private institutional investors including Local Government Pension Schemes, insurance companies, charities, corporate pension schemes and public trusts.
Hermes GPE Infrastructure Strategy (‘HIF I’) was established in 2011 and has £1.2 billion commitments from UK and European pension schemes. HIF I targets Core and Value Added opportunities, predominantly in the UK and Europe.
