Hermes GPE’s products and services referred to on this website are not available to the general public in any jurisdiction, and the information provided does not constitute an offer, invitation to acquire or sell any service, product or security referred to.

The following legal and regulatory information should be read carefully.  In accessing the Hermes GPE LLP (‘Hermes GPE’) website and any pages or material contained therein, you are acknowledging that you accept and agree to these terms of use. It should be noted that these terms and conditions are subject to change.

You should seek your own independent legal, investment and tax advice as you see fit.

This website has no regard to the specific investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs of any specific recipient. This website is published solely for informational purposes and is not to be construed as a solicitation or an offer to buy or sell any securities or related financial instruments.  The contents of this website must not be taken as advice relating to legal, taxation or investment matters, so investors should rely on their own examinations of such matters and  consult their own professional and/or investment advisers as to its suitability, and should understand that statements regarding future prospects may not be realised. No action should be taken or omitted to be taken in reliance upon information in this document. Figures, unless otherwise indicated, are sourced from Hermes GPE.

The opportunities described in this website have unique risks that may make them unsuitable for certain investors. This website indicates where figures used refer to past performance or simulated past performance. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Also, certain returns shown on this website are compared against returns for the relevant benchmark index during similar periods. It is important to note that the underlying volatility and risk of the funds and that of their benchmark indices vary materially. This communication contains forecasts of future performance. Such forecasts are not, however, a reliable indicator of future performance.

This website should be read in conjunction with any relevant fund offering document (such as a prospectus or private placement memorandum) which will exclusively form the basis of any application. A comprehensive list of risk factors appears in each fund offering document and an investment should not be contemplated until the risks of investment have been considered fully.

Investors may not get back the full amount originally invested. The value of overseas investments will be influenced by the rate of exchange. The value and risks of underlying investments may be difficult to verify independently.

In particular, the information on the Hermes GPE website does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy any securities in the United States of America to or for the benefit of United States persons being resident in the United States of America or partnerships or corporations organised under the laws of the United States of America or any state, territory or possession thereof.

Any person wishing to subscribe for any interest should satisfy himself as to the observance of the laws of any relevant territory, including the obtaining of any requisite governmental or other consent and the observing of any other formalities. You acknowledge that you are accessing this website on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all laws and regulations applicable in your own jurisdiction. Hermes GPE uses a web analytics service to monitor the usage on the website.

This website may include a list of Hermes GPE’s clients. Please note that inclusion on this list should not be construed as an endorsement of Hermes GPE’s services. Should you wish to contact a client for reference purposes, please let Hermes GPE know in advance.
