ESG analysis is fully integrated into our investment process and we consider all relevant ESG factors when assessing investment opportunities. We assign an ESG rating to any potential investment that progresses to the Investment Committee and we maintain and update that rating, in conjunction with management teams, for all investments in our portfolio on an ongoing basis. Our best-in-class ESG practices aim to reduce risk and improve long-term returns.
Our integration efforts are supported by our dedicated Responsibility Office and stewardship team – EOS at Federated Hermes (‘EOS’). With $1.1tn in assets under advice (AUA), EOS represents a significant source of expertise.
