Dan Churchouse, Head of UK Wholesale Distribution, at Federated Hermes Limited: “The UK has always been a key market for us as a firm given our roots in the UK pension fund management space. Whilst London remains a key city for us, we are committed to our regional clients outside of the capital. With Shanta’s expertise and focus, we have full resource to cater to all our existing and potential clients. Shanta is a very experienced and knowledgeable sales professional who will play a key role in making our growth plan a success in the wholesale channel.”
