    Hermes Investment Management (Hermes), the £33.0 billion manager, has today announced that it has launched the Hermes European Direct Lending Fund, which is managed by Patrick Marshall, Head of Private Debt & CLOs. The European Fund follows the successful launch of the UK Direct Lending Fund in 2016. The Fund offers access to the stable, low-correlated returns from high-quality, senior-secured loans to a diverse range of middle-market businesses in the UK and Europe, with a focus on Scandinavia, Germany, Benelux and Ireland. Senior-secured transactions are originated through co-lending partnerships with Danske Bank, DZ Bank and KBC Bank, which sit alongside the existing UK mid-market agreement in place with Royal Bank of Scotland. As some of the largest mid-market lenders in their respective regions, the agreements provide investors access to a strong deal flow, with attractive opportunities across a wide range of sectors. Further to this, the team’s broad network of contacts among private equity firms, banks and borrowing businesses creates an additional source of origination across Europe.
