Classifying our funds under SFDR

Set up by the EU and effective from 10 March 2021, the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) looks to improve transparency among financial market participants in relation to sustainability-related information. SFDR requires asset managers to provide standardised disclosures on how environmental and social factors are integrated at both the entity and product level. 

We support greater transparency and a clearer framework around how environmental and social factors are considered in financial markets.

At Federated Hermes Limited, 90% of our funds are aligned to Article 8 or 9 under the new sustainability regulation. Funds in our Active ESG pathway are aligned to either Article 8 or Article 6, while funds in our Sustainability and Impact pathways are aligned to Article 8 or Article 9.

Under SFDR, funds are classified in three categories:

Article 6

  • Financial products not covered by Article 8 or 9
  • Product characteristics: Sustainability risks and opportunities are not a driving force for investment decision-making.​

Article 8

  • Financial products promoting environmental or social characteristics
  • Product characteristics: Strong, demonstrable consideration of ESG factors in the investment process.​

Article 9

  • Financial products with a targeted sustainability objective​
  • Product characteristics: Specific sustainability objectives and intentionality, which can be measured and reported on.​
