Employee wellbeing and business continuity
We are focused on calmly supporting our people and investors throughout this uncertainty. For this reason, we have greatly increased the number of employees working from home, in line with measures announced by governments of the countries we operate in, with a focus on those who are vulnerable to the coronavirus or live with someone who is. 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 while standing by our clients in this environment, and will keep our clients well informed of developments.
