Annual Impact Report, 2018

In December 2017, we launched the Hermes Impact Opportunities Fund – a high-conviction global equity strategy with a bold objective. It aims to generate long-term outperformance by investing in companies succeeding in their core purpose: to generate value by creating positive and sustainable change that addresses the underserved needs of society and the environment.

In our inaugural Annual Impact Report, we reflect on the Fund's first full calendar year.  We also explain how we identify impactful companies and highlight the key performance indicators that we use to measure impact.
