Becoming Federated Hermes
Our brand launched in February 2020, when Federated Hermes, Inc. listed on the New York Stock Exchange, strengthening our position as a global leader in active, responsible investment.
This was a natural step in the development of Federated Investors and Hermes Investment Management. Since Federated became the majority owner of Hermes in 2018, we have been united by a shared commitment to client-centric responsible investment and long-term business growth.
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.
Capabilities: active expertise across the investment spectrum
We offer specialised investment capabilities in public and private market, and pioneering stewardship services:
- Active equities: global and regional
- Fixed-income: across regions, sectors and the yield curve
- Liquidity: solutions driven by four decades of experience
- Private markets: real estate, infrastructure, private equity and debt
- Stewardship: corporate engagement, proxy voting, policy advocacy
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.
