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 https://www.hermes-investment.com, 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 2016, 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

Hermes Investment Management, the £29.8 billion manager focused on delivering superior, sustainable, risk adjusted returns to its clients – responsibly, has today revealed that it is has created a pledge underpinning its commitment to always put its clients first, and to act responsibly and transparently.  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.”

The Hermes Pledge

I pledge to fulfil, to the best of my ability and judgment and in accordance with my role, this covenant:

      • I will act ethically, responsibly and with integrity
      • I will put the interests of our clients and their beneficiaries first
      • I will encourage responsible behaviour in the firms in which we invest and on which we engage
      • I will act with consideration for society and the environment both now and in the future. I will encourage others to do the same
      • I will work with industry colleagues and other key stakeholders to develop and improve our industry’s contribution to society
      • I will treat my clients, my colleagues and all other stakeholders with respect and as I would wish to be treated
      • I will deal with our regulators in an open, co-operative and timely wayI will communicate clearly and honestly with all parties inside and outside our firm
      • I will manage conflicts of interest fairly between all parties
