Federated Hermes

Federated Hermes is a global leader in active, responsible investment with over $700 billion of assets under management, including over $20bn in Private Markets. It is guided by the conviction that responsible investment is the best way to create long term value. We have a extensive track record of delivering meaningful and sustainable placemaking schemes that not only generate long-term financial outcomes, but also positive societal and environmental impact.

Our Real Estate portfolio is a mix of commercial, industrial and residential with the majority of assets in the UK. We have developed a sophisticated and agile ESG framework that is based on a holistic understanding of the environmental and social challenges and opportunities our assets are facing. As we are entering the era of implementation, progress needs to be made at pace if the climate crisis and social inequality are to be tackled successfully. Therefore, our approach to ESG is outcome-focused, action-led and based on targets to achieve progress in a consistent way. 1As at June 30 2023
