Federated Hermes

Federated Hermes views the stewardship of client investments  as sacrosanct. The firm was rebranded after the majority-stake acquisition of Hermes Investment Management by Federated Investors, Inc,.

Listed on the NYSE, Federated Hermes aims to help clients ensure a comfortable retirement while supporting strong societal outcomes through its investment approach. Many factors, including strong engagement and a robust approach to ESG integration, form the roadmap for its sustainable investing approach. It actively engages with companies on  a range of topics including governance structures, supply chains and how companies advance their social license to operate. A dedicated, 1,900-strong workforce serves investors around the world, and each team member has signed a pledge to act with integrity, respect, and responsibility to clients. The Federated Hermes stewardship team engages with investee companies to ensure adherence to a range of benchmarks, with a special focus on environmental, governance and social issues. The firm collaborates with global thought-leaders and regional stakeholders to develop industry solutions that create concrete contributions to society. Federated Hermes is one of the fastest-growing asset managers in the world, with $628bn in AUM and over $1tn in assets under advisement as of June.
