Federated Investors and Hermes Investment Management have rebranded as Federated Hermes on January 31, 2020, strengthening the companies’ position as a leader in active, responsible investing. Together we are a US$575billion global asset manager focused on delivering world-class responsible investing and engagement services to our clients.
Each firm has a history of putting clients first and delivering sustainable, long-term performance and we believe the combination of our businesses will enable us to deliver a fuller range of investment solutions and drive both performance and positive outcomes for our clients.
Since 2018, when Federated acquired a majority interest in Hermes, our businesses have worked closely together and this change in our name reflects our commitment to offering a broad range of investment strategies and solutions to our clients globally – all predicated on the belief that responsible investing is the best way to deliver sustainable returns for our clients.
Hermes has been at the forefront of corporate governance and responsible investing, and we helped draft the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) as one of its founding signatories. Hermes is also a leading stewardship provider with a focus on achieving positive change. Our dedicated EOS team of engagement and voting specialists enables pension funds and other longer-term institutional investors to achieve their fiduciary responsibilities and be more active owners of companies.
Our public markets proficiency includes high active share equities, specialist credit and multi asset while our private markets expertise includes real estate, infrastructure, private equity and private debt.
