Saker Nusseibeh named European Personality of the Year by Funds Europe

Saker Nusseibeh – CBE, CEO of the international business of Federated Hermes, has been named European Personality of the Year by Funds Europe. The announcement was made at the Funds Europe Awards on 19 November.

Funds Europe recognised Saker’s "lifelong mission" to bring environmental, social and governance and socially responsible investing into the mainstream. The sponsor presenting the award highlighted that Saker’s “mission to be a leader in green investment really is bearing the fruits that it deserves”.

Funds Europe selects its European Personality of the Year on the basis of the individual’s contribution to the success, growth, development and profile of their organisation, and to the reputation of the investment industry.

Responding to the award, Saker said that “the industry is at a tipping point”. While we used to be “a lone voice”, in recent times we have “seen many people come and join this campaign towards holistic returns and better outcomes... And I think we've got the stage now where everybody believes in it”.

Saker’s achievement demonstrates our continued commitment to driving innovation in sustainable investment. Driven by our purpose to deliver sustainable wealth creation that enriches investors, benefits society and preserves the environment, we firmly believe in the importance of advocating for a financial system that works for all.
