ESG matters - now more than ever

At the international business of Federated Hermes, we believe that investing responsibly is the best way to sustain long-term outperformance and help deliver beneficial outcomes for investors, companies, society and the environment. We have long advocated and applied this approach. As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, Eoin Murray, Head of Investment, explains why environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration and stewardship matter even more in times of crisis.

In the short video clip below, Eoin discusses the following:

  • How the coronavirus is shining a light on the ‘S’ in ESG
  • Our proprietary ESG research
  • Why ESG stocks have outperformed during the current pandemic
  • How does an investor embed a view of a company’s sustainability within their investment decisions?
  • Does the ESG emperor have clothes on?
  • Delivering sustainable wealth creation in the long term
