Federated Hermes

Gold-Level Sponsor


Founded in 1955, Federated Hermes is a global investment firm responsible for managing $645.8 billion in assets, with revenue of $1.4 billion in 2022. The firm provides equity, fixed-income, alternative/private markets, multi-asset and liquidity management strategies to institutions, corporations, government entities, insurance companies, foundations and endowments, banks and broker/dealers. With headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Federated Hermes employs approximately 2,000 people in offices worldwide, including in London and New York.

As of September 2022, Federated Hermes is a gold-level sponsor of SFOF (which no longer lists its donors on its website). That month the firm assured Responsible Investor that it would “not be renewing [its] membership and… sponsorship of” SFOF. However, two months later Federated Hermes sent at least three staff members to SFOF’s 2022 Fall National Meeting, where CFA Steve Chiavarone made a presentation as part of a panel titled “Protecting Taxpayer Dollars from Inflationary Pressures Throughout the 2022 Recession.” 

Federated Hermes Executive Vice President Amy Michaliszyn attended SFOF’s 2023 Fall National Meeting and had dinner on August 28 with SFOF members and their colleagues.

In 2016, SFOF presented the firm’s Michaliszyn with its Economic Freedom Award.
