Access + advantage

For current Federated Investors' clients, we believe that adding the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to our investment process as well as engagement with companies to mitigate risk and create sustainable value is a benefit that supports us in pursuing long-term performance.*

Meanwhile our new global firm offers access to experienced specialist capabilities in a number of key areas that are certain to be of interest to you.

*There is no guarantee that considering ESG factors will lead to better long-term performance.
