Investing in Society

Established on behalf of Federated Hermes

About the Project


Federated Hermes has, over a number of years, undertaken considerable work to better articulate the “why” of investment and developed a vision for the future of stewardship in the investment industry.  Building on this, the ambition is to articulate and initiate a purposeful debate with other industry participants on what the next steps for the industry need to be, including a roadmap for getting there. This is what the Investing in Society programme, established by Jericho Chambers on behalf of Federated Hermes, is all about.

The aim is to gain a wider range of views from a range of market participants, based on the principles of activism, participation, accountability and dissent (i.e. more than just an echo chamber of usual voices) from which we hope to establish a clear call to action and an actionable plan.
