ESG statement

A global leader in active, responsible investment

Federated Hermes is guided by the conviction that responsible investing is the best way to create long-term wealth.
We provide specialised capabilities across equity, fixed income and private markets, in addition to multi-asset strategies and proven liquidity-management solutions.

Through our world-leading stewardship services, we engage companies on strategic and sustainability concerns to promote investors’ long-term performance and fiduciary interests.

Our goals are to help individuals invest and retire better, to help clients achieve better risk-adjusted returns, and to contribute to positive outcomes in the wider world.

We are the international business of Federated Hermes

All activities previously carried out by Hermes now form the international business of Federated Hermes. Our brand has evolved, but we still provide the same distinct investment propositions, deep integration of responsibility and industry-leading stewardship capabilities for which we are renowned – in addition to important new offerings from the entire group.

Responsibility: our past, present and future

Our fiduciary heritage and expertise in responsible investment ensure that our clients’ interests come first and that we support positive change in the wider world.

We believe that investing responsibly is the best way to sustain long-term outperformance and contributes to beneficial outcomes for investors, companies, society and the environment.

The international business of Federated Hermes has long advocated and applied this approach. Since first engaging for stronger UK corporate governance in 1983, to becoming a founding signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment in 2006, to spearheading the global 2017 Climate Action 100+ initiative involving 370 investors with more than $35tn in assets, we have been at the vanguard of a movement that is now redefining the practice of investing.

The Federated Hermes group is committed to incorporating ESG considerations as fundamental factors in investment strategies. Through EOS, our specialist stewardship services team with a 15-year track record of effective engagement, we seek to advance best-practice active ownership for the benefit of investors, companies and the world at large.

Our approach to holistic returns means we are committed to delivering excellent long-term investment performance and stewardship, while improving the lives of many.
