Coronavirus: a message from our leadership team

In these uncertain times and volatile markets, we are closely monitoring developments concerning the coronavirus pandemic – a challenge faced by us all. We want to assure our clients that we are taking all necessary steps to protect the health of our people and their families, and to support their investment aims.

Employee wellbeing and business continuity

We are focused on calmly supporting our people and investors throughout this uncertainty. For this reason, most of our employees are working from home, in line with measures announced by governments of the countries we operate in. We have stopped all international business travel and seek virtual engagements with clients and prospects. Our business continuity plan has been rigorously tested and we are confident that our investment, operations and client service functions will remain resilient throughout the course of the pandemic.

Agility and transparency

In serving our clients throughout this period, we are committed to remaining transparent and acting with responsibility and integrity, which are cornerstones of the Federated Hermes Pledge. In the following ways, we will continue to provide clear investment updates as the situation evolves in order to stay connected with our clients and the market:

  • Our investment teams and economist are commenting in Sharpe Thinking, a frequently updated publication delivered by our Investment Office, and a series of webinars in which the next instalment will focus on Global Emerging Markets.
  • We will continue to provide reactive portfolio updates as our client services and sales teams respond to our clients questions, concerns and requests for information. Our client team can be reached at [email protected].

Asset management is a people business. Our people are our greatest strength and we are all committed to serving our clients’ interests. We are working diligently to support the wellbeing of employees and to stand firm by our clients in this environment.

Take care,

Saker Nusseibeh, CEO – International

Harriet Steel, Head of Business Development – International

Eoin Murray, Head of Investment – International

Ian Kennedy, Chief Operating Officer – International

Chris Taylor, Head of Private Markets – International
