Federated Hermes Climate Change High Yield Credit strategy, interim report 2022

In this inaugural report, we delve into what makes the Federated Hermes Climate Change High Yield Credit strategy unique. As well as introducing our process and team, the report provides an overview of our proprietary Climate Change Impact (CCI) score, complete with portfolio examples to illustrate the scoring system in practice.

Fund facts

  • Benefitting people and the planet: we seek to deliver into two self-reinforcing objectives – strong financial
    performance for investors and positive climate impacts, through decarbonisation, that contribute
    to the low carbon transition.
  • Investment expertise: since 2004, our team’s principal members have delivered attractive high yield credit
    returns through relative value investing across the capital structures of companies worldwide.
  • Engagement strength: our dedicated engagers, supported by EOS at Federated Hermes, a
    leading global stewardship team, seek positive climate action.
  • Measuring climate impact: our proprietary scoring framework (outlined in more detail in a later section
    of this report) allows us to assess a company’s current and expected contribution to decarbonisation and
    the transition to net zero by 2050.
