Active expertise across the investment spectrum

We offer investment capabilities in public and private markets, with a focus on responsible investing. 

  • Active equities: characterised by proprietary fundamental, environmental, social and governance (ESG) and engagement research.
  • Fixed income: value-seeking approach based on fundamental analysis, a macro perspective and rigorous security selection for diversified, risk-managed portfolios.
  • Liquidity: solutions driven by four decades of experience.
  • Private markets: real estate, infrastructure, private equity and debt.
  • Stewardship: corporate engagement, proxy voting, policy advocacy. Our pioneering stewardship service, EOS at Federated Hermes (EOS), is key to our offering.
