Managed Accounts Pools (MAPs)

Managed Accounts Pools (MAPs) are unique asset class pools specifically designed for Separately Managed Account (SMA) strategies. They are registered investment companies available only in conjunction with Federated Hermes SMAs. All fees are charged at the managed account level, so the MAPs have “zero” advisory fees and reimburse all ordinary operating expenses (excluding those of any other funds in which the MAPs invest). The implementation of MAPs can be at the discretion of the financial professional.

Specific Asset Class Pools Available:

  • BBB Corporate
  • Mortgage
  • High Yield
  • International
