PICTON TAKES OVER INSTITUTIONAL DISTRIBUTION DUTIES FOR FEDERATED HERMES – FUND PRO LATIN AMERICA

Federated Hermes, a global leader in active, responsible investing, and Picton, a leading thirdparty fund distributor in Latin America, announced an agreement that allows Picton to market certain Federated Hermes funds to institutional clients in Latin America.

The agreement focuses Picton’s efforts on strategically positioning Federated Hermes’s investment capabilities and services in the Latin American pension-fund industry and with institutional participants across the region on a private-offering basis.

Picton already reps for global managers Morgan Stanley, Sparx and Barings. Federated had previously relied on an external distributor based in Argentina. “With their experience and strong local knowledge of markets in Chile, Colombia and Peru, we are pleased to work with Picton to market Federated Hermes’ products in the region. As a global leader in responsible investing, it was important for us to be diligent in our search process and find a firm that is client-focused and has a track record of success. We found that in the Picton team,” said Bryan Burke, head of global accounts and Latin America at Federated Hermes. “Picton is proud to enter into this arrangement with Federated Hermes, a firm with outstanding history and a leader in responsible investing,” said Matias Eguiguren, founding partner at Picton. “We look forward to a strong relationship driven by Federated Hermes’s investment capabilities and our broad and deep knowledge of institutional clients,” said Patricio Mebus, head of mutual funds distribution at Picton. Picton will provide due diligence, product information and analysis to institutional clients and serve as a liaison point between them and Federated Hermes’s teams.
