Table of Contents


FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain statements in this report on Form 10-Q constitute forward-looking statements, which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause the actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements of Federated Hermes, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively, Federated Hermes), or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words or phrases such as “forecast,” “project,” “predict,” “trend,” “approximate,” “potential,” “opportunity,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “current,” “intention,” “estimate,” “position,” “projection,” “plan,” “assume,” “continue,” “remain,” “maintain,” “sustain,” “seek,” “achieve,” and similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “can,” “may,” and similar expressions. Among other forward-looking statements, such statements include certain statements relating to, or, as applicable, statements concerning management’s assessments, beliefs, expectations, assumptions, judgments, projections or estimates regarding: asset flows, levels, values and mix and their impact; the possibility and potential impact of impairments; business mix; the level, timing, degree and impact of changes in interest rates or gross or net yields; rates of inflation; fee rates and recognition; sources, levels and recognition of revenues, expenses, gains, losses, income and earnings; the level and impact of reimbursements, rebates or assumptions of fund-related expenses and fee waivers for competitive reasons such as to maintain positive or zero net yields (Voluntary Yield-related Fee Waivers), to maintain certain fund expense ratios, to meet regulatory requirements or to meet contractual requirements (collectively, Fee Waivers); whether, under what circumstances and the degree to which Fee Waivers will be implemented; the impact of market volatility, liquidity, and other market conditions; whether performance fees or carried interest will be earned or clawed back; the possibility of a recession occurring; whether and when revenue or expense is recognized; whether and when capital contributions could be made, the availability of insurance and probability of insurance reimbursements or recoveries in connection with indemnification obligations or other claims; the components and level of, and prospect for, distribution-related expenses; guarantee and indemnification obligations; the impact of acquisitions on Federated Hermes’ growth; the timing and amount of acquisition-related payment obligations; the results of negotiations involving consideration in business transactions; payment obligations pursuant to employment or incentive and business arrangements; vesting rights and requirements; business and market expansion opportunities, including acceleration of global growth; interest and principal payments or expenses; taxes, tax rates and the impact of tax law changes; borrowing, debt, future cash needs and principal uses of cash, cash flows and liquidity, including the amount and timing of expected future capital expenditures; the ability to raise additional capital; type, classification and consolidation of investments; uses of treasury stock; Federated Hermes’ product, strategy, and other service (as applicable, offering) and market performance and Federated Hermes’ performance indicators; investor preferences; offering demand, distribution, development and restructuring initiatives and related planning and timing; the effect, and degree of impact, of changes in customer relationships; the outcome and impact of legal proceedings; regulatory matters, including the pace, timing, impact, effects and other consequences of the current regulatory environment; the attractiveness and resiliency of money market funds; dedication of resources; accounting-related assessments, judgements and determinations; compliance, and related legal, compliance and other professional services



expenses; interest rate, concentration, market, currency and other risks and their impact; and the impact of the special dividend on earnings per share and projected liquid assets. Any forward-looking statement is inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and beyond Federated Hermes’ control. Among other risks and uncertainties, market conditions can change significantly and impact Federated Hermes’ business and results, including by changing Federated Hermes’ asset flows, levels, and mix, and business mix, which could cause a decline in revenues and net income, result in impairments and change the amount of Fee Waivers incurred by Federated Hermes. The obligation to make purchase price payments in connection with acquisitions is subject to certain adjustments and conditions, and the obligation to make contingent payments is based on net revenue growth levels and will be affected by the achievement of such levels. The obligation to make additional payments pursuant to employment or incentive arrangements can be based on satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in those arrangements. Future cash needs, cash flows and uses of cash will be impacted by a variety of factors, including the number and size of any acquisitions, Federated Hermes’ success in developing, structuring and distributing its offerings, potential changes in assets under management (AUM) and/or changes in the terms of distribution and shareholder services contracts with intermediaries who offer Federated Hermes’ offerings to intermediary customers, opportunities to repurchase shares, and potential increased legal, compliance and other professional services expenses stemming from additional or modified regulation or the dedication of such resources to other initiatives. Federated Hermes’ risks and uncertainties also include liquidity and credit risks in Federated Hermes’ money market funds and revenue risk, which will be affected by yield levels in money market fund offerings, Fee Waivers, changes in fair values of AUM, any additional regulatory reforms, investor preferences and confidence, and the ability of Federated Hermes to collect fees in connection with the management of such offerings. Many of these factors could be more likely to occur as a result of continued scrutiny of the mutual fund industry by domestic or foreign regulators, and any disruption in global financial markets. As a result, no assurance can be given as to future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements, and neither Federated Hermes nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness, or updating, of such statements in the future. For more information on these items and additional risks that could impact the forward-looking statements, see Item 1A - Risk Factors included in Federated Hermes’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)

(1) Basis of Presentation
Federated Hermes, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively, Federated Hermes) provide investment advisory, administrative, distribution and other services to various investment products, including sponsored investment companies, collective funds and other funds (Federated Hermes Funds) and separate accounts (which include separately managed accounts, institutional accounts, certain sub-advised funds and other managed products, collectively Separate Accounts) in both domestic and international markets. In addition, Federated Hermes markets and provides stewardship and real estate development services to various domestic and international companies. The interim consolidated financial statements of Federated Hermes included herein (Consolidated Financial Statements) have been prepared in accordance with United States (U.S.) generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments that are of a normal recurring nature and necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented.
In preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported therein and in the accompanying notes. Actual results may differ from those estimates, and such differences may be material to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
The Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with Federated Hermes’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. Certain items reported in previous periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation.
(2) Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Recently Issued Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted
Segment Reporting
In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update (ASU) No. 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures. This ASU updates reportable segment disclosures by expanding the frequency and extent of segment disclosures. The update is effective for Federated Hermes for the December 31, 2024 Form 10-K, and for interim periods starting in fiscal year 2025. Early adoption is permitted and requires the retrospective adoption method. Management is currently evaluating this ASU to determine its impact on Federated Hermes’ disclosures.
Income Taxes
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU No. 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures. This ASU updates income tax disclosures by requiring annual disclosures of disaggregated information, based on meeting a quantitative threshold, about a reporting entity’s effective tax rate reconciliation as well as information on income taxes paid. The update is effective for Federated Hermes for the December 31, 2025 Form 10-K, with early adoption permitted, and allows for either the prospective or retrospective adoption method. Management is currently evaluating this ASU to determine its impact on Federated Hermes’ disclosures.

For nearly all revenue, Federated Hermes is not required to disclose certain estimates of revenue expected to be recorded in future periods as a result of applying the following exemptions: (1) contract terms are short-term in nature (i.e., expected duration of one year or less due to termination provisions) and (2) the expected variable consideration would be allocated entirely to future service periods.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)
(unaudited)

Federated Hermes expects to recognize revenue in the future related to the unsatisfied portion of the stewardship services and real estate development performance obligations at March 31, 2024. Generally, contracts are billed in arrears on a quarterly basis and have a three-year duration, after which the customer can terminate the agreement with notice, generally from three to twelve months. Based on existing contracts and the applicable foreign exchange rates as of March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes may recognize future fixed revenue from these services as presented in the following table:

1    Strategy includes Federated Hermes Funds and Separate Accounts
A significant and prolonged decline in the AUM in this fund or strategy could have a material adverse effect on Federated Hermes’ future revenues and, to a lesser extent, net income, due to a related reduction in distribution expenses associated with this fund or strategy.
(c) Revenue Concentration by Intermediary
Approximately 11% of Federated Hermes’ total revenue for the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, and 13% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2023, was derived from services provided to one intermediary, The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, including its Pershing subsidiary. Significant negative changes in Federated Hermes’ relationship with this intermediary could have a material adverse effect on Federated Hermes’ future revenues and, to a lesser extent, net income due to a related reduction in distribution expenses associated with this intermediary.
(6) Consolidation
The Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Federated Hermes, certain Federated Hermes Funds, carried interest vehicles and other entities in which Federated Hermes holds a controlling financial interest. Federated Hermes is involved with various entities in the normal course of business that may be deemed to be voting rights entities (VREs) or Variable Interest Entities (VIEs). From time to time, Federated Hermes invests in Federated Hermes Funds for general corporate investment purposes or, in the case of newly launched offerings, in order to provide investable cash to establish a performance history. Federated Hermes’ investment in, and/or receivables from, these Federated Hermes Funds represents its maximum exposure to loss. The assets of each consolidated Federated Hermes Fund are restricted for use by that Federated

Hermes Fund. Generally, neither creditors of, nor equity investors in, the Federated Hermes Funds have any recourse to Federated Hermes’ general credit. Given that the entities consolidated by Federated Hermes generally follow investment company accounting, which prescribes fair-value accounting, a deconsolidation generally does not result in the recognition of gains or losses for Federated Hermes.
In the ordinary course of business, Federated Hermes could implement fee waivers, rebates or expense reimbursements for various Federated Hermes Funds for competitive reasons (such as waivers to maintain the yields of certain money market funds at or above zero (Voluntary Yield-related Fee Waivers) or to maintain certain fund expense ratios/yields), to meet regulatory requirements or to meet contractual requirements (collectively, Fee Waivers). For the three months ended March 31, 2024, Fee Waivers totaled $108.2 million, of which $81.1 million related to money market funds which meet the scope exception of the consolidation guidance. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, Fee Waivers totaled $125.2 million, of which $96.1 million related to money market funds which meet the scope exception of the consolidation guidance.
Like other sponsors of investment companies, Federated Hermes in the ordinary course of business could make capital contributions to certain affiliated money market Federated Hermes Funds in connection with the reorganization of such funds into certain other affiliated money market Federated Hermes Funds or in connection with the liquidation of money market Federated Hermes Funds. In these instances, such capital contributions typically are intended to either offset realized losses or other permanent impairments to a fund’s net asset value (NAV), increase the market-based NAV per share of the fund’s portfolio that is being reorganized to equal the market-based NAV per share of the acquiring fund or to bear a portion of expenses relating to a fund liquidation. Under current money market fund regulations and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) guidance, Federated Hermes is required to report these types of capital contributions to U.S. money market mutual funds to the SEC as financial support to the investment company that is being reorganized or liquidated. There were no contributions for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023.
In accordance with Federated Hermes’ consolidation accounting policy, Federated Hermes first determines whether the entity being evaluated is a VRE or a VIE. Once this determination is made, Federated Hermes proceeds with its evaluation of whether to consolidate the entity. The disclosures below represent the results of such evaluations as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.
(a) Consolidated Voting Rights Entities
Although most of the Federated Hermes Funds meet the definition of a VRE, Federated Hermes consolidates VREs only when it is deemed to have control. Consolidated VREs are reported on Federated Hermes’ Consolidated Balance Sheets primarily in Investments—Consolidated Investment Companies and Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests in Subsidiaries.
(b) Consolidated Variable Interest Entities
As of the periods ended March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, Federated Hermes was deemed to be the primary beneficiary of, and therefore consolidated, certain entities as a result of its controlling financial interest. The following table presents the balances related to the consolidated VIEs that were included on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as well as Federated Hermes’ net interest in the consolidated VIEs for each period presented:
(in millions)March 31, 2024December 31, 2023
Cash and Cash Equivalents$11.1 $10.1 
Investments—Consolidated Investment Companies66.7 12.4

Less: Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss), net of tax0.4 0.6 
Less: Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests in Subsidiaries60.2 11.6 
Federated Hermes’ Net Interest in VIEs$21.3 $15.1 
Federated Hermes’ net interest in the consolidated VIEs represents the value of Federated Hermes’ economic ownership interest in those VIEs. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes consolidated one VIE due primarily to redemptions from outside investors. There was no material impact to the Consolidated Statements of Income as a result of this consolidation on a net basis.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)
(unaudited)

(c) Non-Consolidated Variable Interest Entities
Federated Hermes’ involvement with certain Federated Hermes Funds that are deemed to be VIEs includes serving as investment manager, or, at times, holding a minority interest or both. Federated Hermes’ variable interest is not deemed to absorb losses or receive benefits that could potentially be significant to the VIE. Therefore, Federated Hermes is not the primary beneficiary of these VIEs and has not consolidated these entities.
Federated Hermes’ maximum risk of loss related to investments in variable interests in non-consolidated VIEs was $3.4 million (primarily recorded in Other Long-Term Assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets) at March 31, 2024 and was $133.9 million (primarily recorded in Cash and Cash Equivalents on the Consolidated Balance Sheets) at December 31, 2023, and was entirely related to Federated Hermes Funds. AUM for these non-consolidated Federated Hermes Funds totaled $0.2 billion and $9.3 billion at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. Of the Receivables—Affiliates at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, $0.3 million and $1.1 million, respectively, was related to non-consolidated VIEs and represented Federated Hermes’ maximum risk of loss from non-consolidated VIE receivables.
(7) Investments
At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, Federated Hermes held investments in non-consolidated fluctuating-value Federated Hermes Funds of $67.3 million and $99.5 million, respectively, primarily in mutual funds which represent equity investments for Federated Hermes, and held investments in non-affiliate Separate Accounts of $7.5 million for both periods ended March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, that were included in Investments—Affiliates and Other on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Federated Hermes’ investments held in Separate Accounts as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 were primarily composed of stocks of large domestic and foreign companies ($3.7 million and $3.4 million, respectively) and domestic debt securities ($2.4 million for both periods).
Federated Hermes consolidates certain Federated Hermes Funds into its Consolidated Financial Statements as a result of its controlling financial interest in these Federated Hermes Funds (see Note (6)). All investments held by these consolidated Federated Hermes Funds were included in Investments—Consolidated Investment Companies on Federated Hermes’ Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The investments held by consolidated Federated Hermes Funds as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 were primarily composed of domestic and foreign debt securities ($59.1 million for both periods), stocks of large foreign and domestic companies ($59.0 million and $4.9 million, respectively), and stocks of small and mid-sized domestic and foreign companies ($4.6 million and $4.2 million, respectively).

(8) Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or the price that would be paid to transfer a liability as of the measurement date. A fair-value reporting hierarchy exists for disclosure of fair value measurements based on the observability of the inputs to the valuation of financial assets and liabilities. The levels are:
Level 1 – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets. Level 1 assets can include equity and debt securities that are traded in an active exchange market, including shares of mutual funds.
Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets. Level 2 assets and liabilities may include debt and equity securities, purchased loans and over-the-counter derivative contracts whose fair value is determined using a pricing model without significant unobservable market data inputs.
Level 3 – Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable in active markets.
NAV Practical Expedient – Investments that calculate NAV per share (or its equivalent) as a practical expedient. These investments have been excluded from the fair value hierarchy.

Federated Hermes did not hold any nonfinancial assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2024 or December 31, 2023.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and Cash Equivalents include deposits with banks and investments in money market funds. Investments in money market funds totaled $310.9 million and $333.3 million at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. Cash investments in publicly available money market funds are valued under the market approach through the use of quoted market prices in an active market, which is the NAV of the funds, and are classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy.

Investments—Consolidated Investment Companies
Investments—Consolidated Investment Companies represent securities held by consolidated Federated Hermes Funds. For publicly traded securities available in an active market, the fair value of these securities is classified as Level 1 when the fair value is based on quoted market prices. The fair values of certain securities held by consolidated Federated Hermes Funds which are determined by third-party pricing services and utilize observable market inputs of comparable investments are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy.
Investments—Affiliates and Other
Investments—Affiliates and Other primarily represent investments in fluctuating-value Federated Hermes Funds, as well as investments held in Separate Accounts. For investments in fluctuating-value Federated Hermes Funds that are publicly available, the securities are valued under the market approach through the use of quoted market prices available in an active market, which is the NAV of the funds, and are classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. For publicly traded securities available in an active market, the fair value of these securities is classified as Level 1 when the fair value is based on quoted market prices. The fair values of certain securities which are determined by third-party pricing services and utilize observable market inputs of comparable investments are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy.
Acquisition-related future contingent consideration liabilities
From time to time, pursuant to agreements entered into in connection with certain business combinations and asset acquisitions, Federated Hermes could be required to make future consideration payments if certain contingencies are met. In connection with certain business combinations, Federated Hermes records a liability representing the estimated fair value of future consideration payments as of the acquisition date. The liability is subsequently re-measured at fair value on a recurring basis with changes in fair value recorded in earnings. As of March 31, 2024, acquisition-related future consideration liabilities of $7.7 million were primarily related to business combinations made in 2022 and 2020 and were recorded in Other Current Liabilities ($4.1 million) and Other Long-Term Liabilities ($3.6 million) on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Management estimated the fair value of future consideration payments based primarily upon expected future cash flows using an income approach valuation methodology with unobservable market data inputs (Level 3).
The following table presents a reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances for Federated Hermes’ liability for future consideration payments related to these business combinations:
(in thousands)
Balance at December 31, 2023$7,626 
Changes in Fair Value222 
Contingent Consideration Payments(118)
Balance at March 31, 2024$7,730 
Investments using Practical Expedients
For investments in mutual funds that are not publicly available but for which the NAV is calculated monthly and for which there are redemption restrictions, the investments are valued using NAV as a practical expedient and are excluded from the fair value hierarchy. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, these investments totaled $18.9 million and $19.9 million, respectively, and were recorded in Other Long-Term Assets.
(b) Fair Value Measurements on a Nonrecurring Basis
Federated Hermes did not hold any assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis at March 31, 2024.
(c) Fair Value Measurements of Other Financial Instruments
The fair value of Federated Hermes’ debt is estimated by management using observable market data (Level 2). Based on this fair value estimate, the carrying value of debt appearing on the Consolidated Balance Sheets approximates fair value, net of unamortized issuance costs in the amount of $2.1 million.

(9) Derivatives
Federated Hermes enters into foreign currency forward transactions in order to hedge against foreign exchange rate fluctuations related to Federated Hermes Limited (FHL), a British Pound Sterling-denominated subsidiary. None of these forwards have been designated as hedging instruments for accounting purposes.
As of March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes held foreign currency forwards expiring from June 2024 through December 2024 with two counterparties. For foreign currency forwards with a combined notional amount of £56.8 million, Federated Hermes recorded $0.9 million in Receivables, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, which represented the fair value as of March 31, 2024. For foreign currency forwards with a notional amount of £26.8 million, Federated Hermes recorded $1.3 million in Other Current Liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, which represented the fair value as of March 31, 2024.
As of December 31, 2023, Federated Hermes held foreign currency forwards expiring from March 2024 through September 2024 with two counterparties. For foreign currency forwards with a notional amount of £28.8 million, Federated Hermes recorded $1.6 million in Receivables, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, which represented the fair value as of December 31, 2023. For foreign currency forwards with a combined notional amount of £55.5 million, Federated Hermes recorded $0.3 million in Other Current Liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, which represented the fair value as of December 31, 2023.
(10) Intangible Assets, including Goodwill
Intangible Assets, net at March 31, 2024 decreased $5.3 million from December 31, 2023 primarily due to amortization expense ($3.2 million) and a decrease in the value of intangible assets denominated in a foreign currency as a result of foreign exchange rate fluctuations ($2.3 million).
Goodwill at March 31, 2024 decreased $1.2 million from December 31, 2023 as a result of foreign exchange rate fluctuations on goodwill denominated in a foreign currency.
(11) Debt
Unsecured Senior Notes
On March 17, 2022, Federated Hermes entered into a Note Purchase Agreement (Note Purchase Agreement) by and among Federated Hermes and the purchasers of certain unsecured senior notes in the aggregate amount of $350 million ($350 million Notes), at a fixed interest rate of 3.29% per annum, payable semiannually in arrears in March and September in each year of the agreement. Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and PNC Capital Markets LLC acted as lead placement agents in relation to the $350 million Notes and certain subsidiaries of Federated Hermes are guarantors of the obligations owed under the Note Purchase Agreement. As of March 31, 2024, $347.9 million, net of unamortized issuance costs in the amount of $2.1 million, was recorded in Long-Term Debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The entire principal amount of the $350 million Notes will become due March 17, 2032, subject to certain prepayment requirements under limited conditions. Federated Hermes can elect to prepay the $350 million Notes under certain limited circumstances including with a make-whole amount if prepaid without the consent of the holders of the $350 million Notes. The Note Purchase Agreement does not feature a facility for the further issuance of additional notes or borrowing of any other amounts and there is no commitment fee payable in connection with the $350 million Notes.
The Note Purchase Agreement includes representations and warranties, affirmative and negative financial covenants, including an interest coverage ratio covenant and a leverage ratio covenant, reporting requirements, other non-financial covenants and other customary terms and conditions. Federated Hermes was in compliance with all of its covenants at and during the period ended March 31, 2024. See the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for additional information.
The Note Purchase Agreement includes certain stated events of default and cross default provisions which would permit the lenders/counterparties to accelerate the repayment of the $350 million Notes if not cured within the applicable grace periods. The events of default generally include breaches of contract, failure to make required payments, insolvency, certain material misrepresentations and other proceedings, whether voluntary or involuntary, that would require repayment of the $350 million Notes prior to their stated date of maturity. Any such accelerated amounts would accrue interest at a default rate and could

include an additional make-whole amount upon repayment. The $350 million Notes rank without preference or priority in relation to other unsecured and senior indebtedness of Federated Hermes.
Revolving Credit Facility
On July 30, 2021, Federated Hermes entered into an unsecured Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement by and among Federated Hermes, certain of its subsidiaries as guarantors party thereto, a syndicate of eleven banks as Lenders party thereto, PNC Bank, National Association as administrative agent, PNC Capital Markets LLC, as sole bookrunner and joint lead arranger, Citigroup Global Markets, Inc., as joint lead arranger, Citibank, N.A. as syndication agent, and Toronto-Dominion Bank, New York Branch as documentation agent (Credit Agreement). The Credit Agreement consists of a $350 million revolving credit facility with an additional $200 million available via an optional increase (or accordion) feature. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement may be used for general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, stock repurchases, dividend payments (including any special dividend payments), and acquisitions.
The interest on borrowings from the revolving credit facility is calculated at the term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) which includes a benchmark adjustment based on its historical relationship to the London Interbank Offering Rate (LIBOR). The borrowings under the revolving credit facility may include up to $50 million for which interest is calculated at the daily SOFR plus a spread unless a base rate option is elected (Swing Line). Effective July 1, 2023, Federated Hermes began using SOFR as a replacement to LIBOR in order to calculate interest on borrowings, if any, as permitted by the Credit Agreement. This is only a change to the rate index used for future borrowings under the Credit Agreement due to the discontinuance of LIBOR in the market and is not an amendment to the Credit Agreement.
The Credit Agreement, which expires on July 30, 2026, has no principal payment schedule, but instead requires that any outstanding principal be repaid by the expiration date. Federated Hermes, however, can elect to make discretionary principal payments. There was no activity on the Credit Agreement during the three months ended March 31, 2024.
As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were no outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility. The commitment fee under the Credit Agreement is 0.10% per annum on the daily unused portion of each Lender’s commitment. As of March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes has $350 million available for borrowings under the revolving credit facility and an additional $200 million available via its optional accordion feature.
The Credit Agreement includes representations and warranties, affirmative and negative financial covenants, including an interest coverage ratio covenant and a leverage ratio covenant, reporting requirements, other non-financial covenants and other customary terms and conditions. Federated Hermes was in compliance with all covenants at and during the three months ended March 31, 2024. See the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for additional information.
The Credit Agreement also has certain stated events of default and cross default provisions which would permit the lenders/counterparties to accelerate the repayment of debt outstanding if not cured within the applicable grace periods. The events of default generally include breaches of contract, failure to make required loan payments, insolvency, cessation of business, notice of lien or assessment, and other proceedings, whether voluntary or involuntary, that would require the repayment of amounts borrowed. The Credit Agreement also requires certain subsidiaries to enter into a Third Amended and Restated Continuing Agreement of Guaranty and Suretyship to guarantee payment of all obligations incurred through the Credit Agreement.
(12) Share-Based Compensation
During the three months ended March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes awarded 391,107 shares of restricted Class B common stock, the majority of which was granted in connection with a bonus program in which certain key employees received a portion of their bonus in the form of restricted stock under the Plan. This restricted stock, which was granted on the bonus payment date and issued out of treasury, generally vests over a three-year period.
During 2023, Federated Hermes awarded 375,796 shares of restricted Class B common stock in connection with a bonus program in which certain key employees received a portion of their bonus in the form of restricted stock under the Plan. This bonus restricted stock, which was granted on the bonus payment date and issued out of treasury, generally vests over a three-year period. Federated Hermes also awarded 414,500 shares of restricted Class B common stock under this same Plan that generally vest over a ten-year period. In addition, Federated Hermes awarded 86,000 shares of restricted Class B common stock under the Federated Hermes UK Sub-Plan that generally vest over a five-year period.

(13) Equity
In October 2023, the Federated Hermes board of directors authorized a share repurchase program with no stated expiration date that allows the repurchase of up to 5.0 million shares of Class B common stock. No other program existed as of March 31, 2024. The program authorizes executive management to determine the timing and the amount of shares for each purchase. The repurchased stock is to be held in treasury for employee share-based compensation plans, potential acquisitions and other corporate activities, unless Federated Hermes’ board of directors subsequently determines to retire the repurchased stock and restore the shares to authorized but unissued status (rather than holding the shares in treasury). During the three months ended March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares of its Class B common stock for $37.0 million ($0.7 million of which was accrued in Other Current Liabilities as of March 31, 2024), nearly all of which were repurchased in the open market. At March 31, 2024, approximately 3.5 million shares remain available to be repurchased under this share repurchase program.
The following table presents the activity for the Class B common stock and Treasury stock for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023. Class A shares have been excluded as there was no activity during these same periods.

(17) Commitments and Contingencies
(a) Contractual
From time to time, pursuant to agreements entered into in connection with certain business combinations and asset acquisitions, Federated Hermes is obligated to make future payments under various agreements to which it is a party. See Note (8) for additional information regarding these payments.
(b) Guarantees and Indemnifications
On an intercompany basis, various subsidiaries of Federated Hermes guarantee certain financial obligations of Federated Hermes, Inc. and of other consolidated subsidiaries, and Federated Hermes, Inc. guarantees certain financial and performance-related obligations of various wholly-owned subsidiaries. In addition, in the normal course of business, Federated Hermes has entered into contracts that provide a variety of indemnifications. Typically, obligations to indemnify third parties arise in the context of contracts entered into by Federated Hermes, under which Federated Hermes agrees to hold the other party harmless against losses arising out of the contract, provided the other party’s actions are not deemed to have breached an agreed-upon standard of care. In each of these circumstances, payment by Federated Hermes is contingent on the other party making a claim for indemnity, subject to Federated Hermes’ right to challenge the claim. Further, Federated Hermes’ obligations under these agreements can be limited in terms of time and/or amount. It is not possible to predict the maximum potential amount of future payments under these or similar agreements due to the conditional nature of Federated Hermes’ obligations and the unique facts and circumstances involved in each particular agreement. As of March 31, 2024, management does not believe that a material loss related to any of these matters is reasonably possible.
(c) Legal Proceedings
Like other companies, Federated Hermes has claims asserted and threatened against it in the ordinary course of business. As of March 31, 2024, Federated Hermes does not believe that a material loss related to any of these claims is reasonably possible.
(d) Other
During the first quarter 2023, an administrative error was identified related to a failure to register certain shares of a Federated Hermes closed-end tender fund. Federated Hermes estimated a probable cost of $19.6 million as of March 31, 2024 related to
20

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)

correcting this issue, of which $17.9 million represents a settlement with affected shareholders that was paid during the second quarter 2023. During the first quarter 2023, Federated Hermes recorded $2.5 million to Operating Expenses - Other representing Federated Hermes' retention under the insurance policy. Management believes an insurance reimbursement of $15.9 million is probable based on the contractual terms of the insurance policies. Accordingly, $15.9 million has been recorded to Receivables, net at March 31, 2024. However, the insurance claim is now the subject of litigation with two of Federated Hermes’ insurance carriers. Changes to these estimates, which are contingent upon resolution of the insurance claim with the applicable insurers, could be materially different from the amount Federated Hermes has recorded.
In connection with the restructuring of an infrastructure fund, Federated Hermes purchased certain limited partners’ rights to receive future carried interest at fair value, which was calculated by a third-party, for $9.8 million and was included in Operating Expenses - Other in the second quarter 2023. Due to the restructuring, an existing clawback risk on previously earned carried interest was removed. The purchase of these carried interest rights and related legal and professional fees and other costs are not deductible for tax purposes. Negotiations for additional consideration continue with a subset of limited partners, with an additional $5.1 million in consideration being recorded in Operating Expenses - Other in the second half of 2023. The final consideration may be different from the amounts recorded and the difference could be material.
(18) Income Taxes
The income tax provision was $29.0 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, as compared to $21.0 million for the same period in 2023. The increase in the income tax provision was primarily due to higher income before income taxes. The effective tax rate was 27.9% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, as compared to 22.7% for the same period in 2023. The increase in the effective tax rate was primarily due to a valuation allowance on foreign deferred tax assets (3.0%), and a larger tax benefit in 2023 associated with vesting of restricted shares related to share-based compensation (1.1%).
(19) Subsequent Events
On April 25, 2024, the board of directors declared a $1.31 per share dividend to Federated Hermes’ Class A and Class B common stock shareholders of record as of May 8, 2024 to be paid on May 15, 2024. The dividend, which will be paid from Federated Hermes’ existing cash balance, is considered an ordinary dividend for tax purposes and consists of a $0.31 quarterly dividend and a $1.00 special dividend. See Management’s Discussion and Analysis under the caption Business Developments - Subsequent Event - Special Cash Dividend for more information on the estimated diluted earnings per share impact for the quarter ending June 30, 2024.

Part I, Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis
of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (unaudited)
The discussion and analysis below should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements appearing elsewhere in this report. Management has presumed that the readers of this interim financial information have read or have access to Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations appearing in Federated Hermes’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.
General
Federated Hermes is a global leader in active, responsible investing with $778.7 billion in managed assets as of March 31, 2024. The majority of Federated Hermes’ revenue is derived from advising Federated Hermes Funds and Separate Accounts in domestic and international public and private markets. Federated Hermes also derives revenue from providing administrative and other fund-related services (including distribution and shareholder servicing) as well as stewardship and real estate development services.
Investment advisory fees, administrative service fees and certain fees for other services, such as distribution and shareholder service fees, are contract-based and are generally calculated as a percentage of the average net assets of managed investment portfolios. Federated Hermes’ revenue is primarily dependent upon factors that affect the value of managed/serviced assets, including market conditions and the ability to attract and retain assets. Generally, managed assets in Federated Hermes’ public market investment products and strategies (together with other offered services, as applicable, offerings) can be redeemed or withdrawn at any time with no advance notice requirement, while managed assets in Federated Hermes’ private market investment offerings are subject to restrictions to withdrawals. Fee rates for Federated Hermes’ services generally vary by asset and service type and can vary based on changes in asset levels. Generally, advisory fees charged for services provided to multi-asset and equity offerings are higher than advisory fees charged to alternative/private markets and fixed-income offerings, which in turn are higher than advisory fees charged to money market offerings. Likewise, Federated Hermes Funds typically have higher advisory fees than Separate Accounts. Similarly, revenue is also dependent upon the relative composition of average AUM across both asset and offering types. Federated Hermes can implement Fee Waivers for competitive reasons such as to maintain positive or zero net yields (Voluntary Yield-related Fee Waivers), to maintain certain fund expense ratios, to meet regulatory requirements or to meet contractual requirements. Since Federated Hermes’ public market offerings are largely distributed and serviced through financial intermediary customers, Federated Hermes pays a portion of fees earned from sponsored offerings to the financial intermediary customers that sell these offerings. These payments are generally calculated as a percentage of net assets attributable to the applicable financial intermediary and represent the vast majority of Distribution expense on the Consolidated Statements of Income. Certain components of Distribution expense can vary depending upon the asset type, distribution channel and/or the size of the customer relationship. Federated Hermes generally pays out a larger portion of the revenue earned from managed assets in money market and multi-asset funds than the revenue earned from managed assets in equity, fixed-income and alternative/private markets funds.
Federated Hermes’ most significant operating expenses are Compensation and Related expense and Distribution expense. Compensation and Related expense includes base salary and wages, incentive compensation and other employee expenses including payroll taxes and benefits. Incentive compensation, which includes stock-based compensation, can vary depending on various factors including, but not limited to, the overall results of operations of Federated Hermes, investment management performance and sales performance.
The discussion and analysis of Federated Hermes’ financial condition and results of operations are based on Federated Hermes’ Consolidated Financial Statements. Federated Hermes operates in one operating segment, the investment management business. Management analyzes all expected revenue and expenses and considers market demands in determining an overall fee structure for services provided and in evaluating the addition of new business. Federated Hermes’ growth and profitability are dependent upon its ability to attract and retain AUM and upon the profitability of those assets, which is impacted, in part, by Fee Waivers. Fees for mutual fund-related services are ultimately subject to the approval of the independent directors or trustees of the mutual funds and, as required by law, fund shareholders. Management believes that meaningful indicators of Federated Hermes’ financial performance include AUM, gross and net product sales, total revenue and net income, both in total and per diluted share.

Business Developments
Current Regulatory Developments
The business and regulatory environments in which Federated Hermes operates globally remain complex, uncertain and subject to change. Federated Hermes and its investment management business are subject to extensive regulation, both within and outside of the U.S., including various laws, rules and regulations globally that impose restrictions, limitations, registration, reporting and disclosure requirements on its business, and add complexity to its global compliance operations. For example, Federated Hermes and its offerings are subject to various: (1) federal securities laws, such as the Securities Act of 1933 (1933 Act), the Securities Act of 1934 (Exchange Act), Investment Company Act of 1940 (1940 Act), and Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (Advisers Act); (2) state laws regarding securities fraud and registration; and (3) regulations or other rules promulgated by various regulatory authorities, or other authorities. These regulatory requirements, and other regulatory developments, continue to impact the investment management industry generally, and will continue to impact, to various degrees, Federated Hermes’ business, results of operations, financial condition, cash flows, and stock price (collectively, Financial Condition). Please see Federated Hermes’ prior public filings, including, the discussions under Item 1 – Business – Regulatory Matters, in Federated Hermes’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (2023 Annual Report), for an overview of Federated Hermes’ regulatory environment and related regulatory developments for periods prior to December 31, 2023.
Regulatory Developments – Domestic
Federated Hermes’ primary regulator in the U.S. is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). U.S. regulatory matters addressed in Federated Hermes’ 2023 Annual Report included, among others, money market fund reform, voluntary swing pricing and liquidity for open-end funds, ESG and sustainability, amendments to Rule 35d-1 (Names Rule) under the 1940 Act, proposed custody rule amendments under the Advisers Act, and systematically important financial institutions designation by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC). Key regulatory developments and requirements in the U.S. since December 31, 2023 that could significantly impact or relate to Federated Hermes’ business and offerings include, among others, the following:
Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors. On March 6, 2024, the SEC adopted much anticipated new rules mandating climate-related disclosures in public companies’ annual reports and registration statements. In most cases, the new climate-related disclosures will only be required if determined to be material to the issuer. The new rules require disclosure of, among other things, material climate-related risks, material mitigation activities, oversight and governance of climate-related risks, and whether and how any climate-related targets or goals have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the issuer’s business, results of operations or financial condition. For large-accelerated filers or accelerated filers that are not also smaller reporting companies or emerging growth companies, the new rules require disclosure of material Scope 1 and/or Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and related methodology, significant inputs and significant assumptions used in calculating the emissions. Subject to lengthy phase-in-periods, large-accelerated filers and accelerated filers are required to obtain limited assurance on their GHG emissions disclosure, and large-accelerated filers would need to eventually obtain reasonable assurance. Finally, the rules require issuers to disclose the financial impacts of certain climate-related expenses in a new note in their audited financial statements, to the extent such expenses exceed certain disclosure thresholds. The new rules provide phase-in periods based on SEC filer status, with extended phase-in periods for required third-party attestation of GHG emissions. On March 15, 2024, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit (Fifth Circuit) issued an administrative stay of the SEC’s new climate-related disclosure rules. Consolidated challenges of the new rules will be heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit (Eighth Circuit). On April 4, 2024, the SEC issued an order in which it announced that it has determined to exercise its discretion to stay its new climate-related disclosure rules pending completion of the judicial review by the Eighth Circuit.
Share Repurchase Disclosure Modernization. In May 2023, the SEC adopted amendments to modernize the disclosure requirements relating to repurchases of an issuer’s equity securities, including requiring issuers to provide daily repurchase activity on a quarterly or semi-annual basis, depending on the type of issuer (Repurchase Rule). On December 19, 2023, the Fifth Circuit vacated the Repurchase Rule, which had the legal effect of reverting to the rules and forms that existed prior to the effective date of the Repurchase Rule. On March 19, 2024, the SEC adopted final technical amendments to the Repurchase Rule, which had the effect of revising the regulations to reflect the Fifth Circuit’s vacatur of the Repurchase Rule and reverting to the rules and forms that existed prior to the effective date of the Repurchase Rule.
Tailored Shareholder Report Guidance. On October 26, 2022, the SEC adopted a final rule, “Tailored Shareholder Reports for Mutual Funds and Exchange Traded Funds; Fee Information in Investment Company Advertisements,” and related form amendments, that, among other things, require open-end management investment companies to transmit “concise and visually

engaging” annual and semi-annual reports directly to shareholders that highlight key information for investors. On January 17, 2024, the SEC staff issued guidance in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to the adoption of the final rule and form amendments addressing questions regarding: (1) the definition of an “appropriate broad-based securities market index;” (2) delivery of materials for funds underlying variable annuity or insurance contracts; (3) the ability to bind individual shareholder reports of multiple funds for delivery to an investor; (4) permissible methods of electronic delivery of shareholder reports; and (5) the compliance date for the rule and Form N-CSR filings. Compliance with the tailored shareholder report requirements is required beginning with shareholder reports issued in July 2024.
Amendments to Form PF. On February 8, 2024, the SEC and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) jointly adopted amendments to Form PF, the confidential reporting form for certain SEC-registered investment advisors to private funds, to: (1) enhance reporting by large hedge fund advisors regarding qualifying hedge funds purportedly to provide better insight into the operations and strategies of these funds and their advisors and to improve data quality and comparability; (2) enhance reporting of hedge funds purportedly to provide greater insight into hedge funds’ operations and strategies, to assist in identifying trends, and to improve data quality and comparability; (3) amend how investment advisors report complex structures purportedly to improve the ability of the FSOC to monitor and assess systemic risk and to provide greater visibility for the FSOC, SEC and CFTC into the arrangements; and (4) remove aggregate reporting for large hedge fund advisors purportedly to lessen the burden on advisors and to focus Form PF reporting on more valuable information for systemic risk assessment purposes. The effective date and compliance date for the amendments to Form PF is March 12, 2025.
New Department of Labor (DOL) Fiduciary Rule. On April 23, 2024, the DOL issued its final “Fiduciary Rule” in which it changes to the definition of “investment advice” fiduciary under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), as well as amendments to several prohibited transaction class exemptions (DOL New Fiduciary Rule). The changes, among other things, broaden the circumstances in which ERISA fiduciary status will apply to investment advisors, broker dealers and other entities with direct or indirect discretionary authority or control, that represent or acknowledge acting as a fiduciary, or that make investment recommendations to investors on a regular basis as part of their business, including recommendations relating to ERISA plan rollover transactions, any other securities transaction, or any investment strategy involving securities or other investment property. The final rule amends or eliminates several prohibited transaction exemptions (PTE), including, among others, PTE 77-4 (Purchase of Shares of Open-End Investment Companies), and require all investment advice fiduciaries to comply with the “best interest” standard of care and disclosure requirements under PTE 2020-02 in order to receive compensation that would otherwise be prohibited under ERISA in the absence of an exemption, including commissions, 12b-1 fees, revenue sharing, and mark-ups and mark-downs in certain principal transactions. The final DOL New Fiduciary Rule differs from the proposed DOL New Fiduciary Rule in certain respects, including: (1) the final rule narrows the contexts in which a covered recommendation will constitute ERISA fiduciary investment advice and makes clear that the test for fiduciary status is objective; (2) the final rule confirms that sales recommendations that do not satisfy the objective test will not be treated as ERISA fiduciary investment advice, and that the mere provision of investment information or education, without an investment recommendation, is not ERISA investment advice within the meaning of the final rule; and (3) the final rule clarifies that it focuses on communications with persons with authority over plan investment decisions (including selecting investment options for participant-directed plans), rather than communications with financial services providers who do not have such authority, and excludes plan and individual retirement account investment advice fiduciaries from the definition of a retirement investor. As a result, an asset manager does not render ERISA fiduciary investment advice simply by making recommendations to a financial professional or firm that, in turn, will render ERISA fiduciary investment advice to retirement investors in a fiduciary capacity. The final DOL New Fiduciary Rule will become effective 150 days after it is published in the Federal Register.
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Ban on Non-Compete Agreements. On April 23, 2024, the FTC issued its final rule banning all new post-employment non-compete agreements between an employer and its employee after its effective date, which will be 120 days after publication of the final rule in the Federal Register. The final rule applies to for-profit companies, regardless of industry or level of worker (e.g., senior executive versus other levels of employee). Under the final rule, a “non-compete clause” includes a term or condition of employment that prohibits a worker from, penalizes a worker for, or functions to prevent a worker from: (1) seeking or accepting work in the U.S. with a different person where such work would begin after the conclusion of the employment that includes the term or condition; or (2) operating a business in the U.S. after the conclusion of the employment that includes the term or condition. The final rule does not: (1) apply to non-competes applicable during the term of a person’s employment that prohibit the employee from competing against the employer while still employed; (2) apply to existing post-employment non-compete agreements with “senior executives” (generally defined as employees earning for than $151,164 annually who are in policy making positions); (3) apply to non-compete agreements entered into in connection with the sale of a business, regardless of a person’s ownership percentage; (4) apply to franchisee/franchisor contracts (although the final rule does apply to employees working for a franchisee or franchisor); or (5) require formal recession of existing non-compete

agreements, but rather requires notice to employees to the effect that post-employment non-compete agreements are no longer enforceable. Companies that violate the final rule may be subject to civil penalties. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has announced that it will file a lawsuit challenging the FTC’s final rule. Accordingly, it is possible that the final rule’s implementation will be stayed until there is a resolution of this lawsuit.
Regulatory Developments – International
Federated Hermes’ primary regulators outside the U.S. are the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI), the Luxembourg Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) and the Cayman Island Monetary Authority (CIMA). Non-U.S. regulatory matters addressed in Federated Hermes’ 2023 Annual Report included, among others, the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023, the Financial Services and Markets Act 2023, and remaining impacts of Brexit, money market fund reform, liquidity risk management in open-end funds, sustainability finance initiatives, and the possibility of a financial transaction tax. Key recent regulatory developments outside the U.S. since December 31, 2023 that could significantly impact or relate to Federated Hermes’ business and offerings include, among others, the following:
UK Overseas Fund Regime (OFR) and Other Ongoing Impacts of Brexit. There has been progress in the UK on the OFR, which will apply where non-UK funds are to be made available to retail investors in the UK, and also apply to the marketing of non-UK money market funds in the UK. The UK government previously confirmed the completion of its equivalence assessment of the member states of the European Economic Area (EEA) for the purposes of the OFR. Following that announcement, the Financial Services Act 2021 (Overseas Fund Regime and Recognition of Parts of Schemes) (Amendment and Modification) Regulations 2024 became effective on February 26, 2024. This is a further step towards the OFR becoming operational before the current temporary market permissions regime (TMPR) expires on December 31, 2026. It is expected that once the OFR is implemented, funds currently subject to the TMPR will be transitioned from the TMPR to OFR prior to December 31, 2026.
The UK Government previously announced a package of proposed changes, known as the “Edinburgh Reforms,” that are intended to reform the regulation of financial services in the UK. The Edinburgh Reforms are in part a response to Brexit, and have various components. One area of focus is the permissible arrangements for financial services firms to acquire and pay for investment research. The UK Government commissioned the Investment Research Review to evaluate investment research in the UK and its contribution to the international competitiveness of the UK’s capital markets. The Investment Research Review made a number of wide-ranging recommendations. On April 10, 2024, the FCA published a consultation paper on a key recommendation of the Investment Research Review, which is the introduction of an option that would allow asset managers to pay for investment research using a joint or bundled payment for trade execution and research services. The FCA intends to issue final rules in June 2024.
UK regulatory priorities and areas of focus for the financial services sector. On March 19, 2024, the FCA set out its business plan for 2024-25. The business plan identifies a number of areas of focus, including: (1) the protection of consumers; (2) ensuring market integrity by monitoring market risk and taking action where appropriate; (3) strengthening the UK’s international competitiveness to facilitate long-term growth, including in the global wholesale markets by welcoming new technology and innovation; (4) reducing and preventing financial crime; and (5) preparing financial services for the future.
Specifically in relation to the asset management sector, on March 1, 2024, the FCA published a portfolio letter on its supervisory strategy for asset managers in the UK. The FCA noted that its supervisory approach will continue to focus on assessing the effectiveness of firms’ governance arrangements in assigning senior accountability for key risks and ensuring appropriate management information about those risks support good decision making. The FCA identified its supervisory priorities as including: (1) setting and testing higher standards; (2) reducing and preventing serious harm to market integrity and avoiding disruption in financial markets; (3) supporting innovation through technological and digital innovation such as fund and asset tokenization; and (4) promoting competition and positive change. The FCA also provided an update on its work to migrate certain European Union (EU) legislation, notably Markets in Financial Instruments, Alternative Investment Funds Manager Directive (AIFMD) and Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) regulation into the FCA Handbook. Although the timeframe for this is yet to be determined, the FCA noted in its portfolio letter that it expects to make significant progress in 2024.
UK’s Digital Securities Sandbox (DSS) joint Bank of England (BoE) and FCA Consultation Paper. On April 3, 2024, the BoE and FCA published a consultation paper setting out their proposals to implement and operate the DSS, which is a regime that will allow firms to use developing technology, such as distributed ledger technology, in the issuance, trading and settlement of securities. Firms that successfully apply for the DSS will be able to operate under a set of rules and regulations that have been modified to facilitate DSS financial activities. The DSS lasts for five years and will help regulators design a permanent

Management's Discussion and Analysis (continued)

technology friendly regime for the securities market. The proposals call for the BoE and FCA to work together to operate the DSS with the goals of: (1) facilitating innovation to promote a safe, sustainable and efficient financial system; (2) protecting financial stability; and (3) protecting market integrity and cleanliness. Examples of financial instruments that could be issued and traded in the DSS include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) equities; (2) corporate and government bonds; (3) money market instruments such as commercial paper and certificates of deposits; (4) units in collective investment undertakings; and (5) emissions allowances. The trading and settlement of derivative contracts and “unbacked cryptocurrencies” such as Bitcoin are not in the scope of the DSS. The consultation period ends on May 29, 2024, and the current plan calls for the DSS application process to begin over the summer of 2024, with the first cohort of DSS applicants becoming sandbox entrants in the fall of 2024.
EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). On December 14, 2023, the Council of the EU (Council) and the EU Parliament announced that they had reached a provisional political agreement on the CSDDD. The original version of the CSDDD imposed due diligence obligations requiring companies to identify, and to prevent or at least mitigate, adverse impacts on human rights and the environment, including by their subsidiaries and supply chain partners. Obligations would be enforced through administrative sanctions and civil liability, with a defense of having exercised reasonable due diligence. Following negotiations among certain EU member states, a revised version of the CSDDD was approved by the Council on March 15, 2024, and will be presented to EU Parliament for approval. Contrary to previous announcements, financial services firms will not be excluded from the scope of the CSDDD. Among other things, the revised version of the CSDDD has a more limited scope than the original version, as it only applies to EU businesses with more than 1,000 employees (compared to 500 employees in the original version) and an annual net worldwide turnover of at least 450 million Euros in the EU (compared to 150 million Euros in the original version). In addition, companies are no longer required to provide incentives to directors to implement climate transition plans.
Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). In the EU, corporate issuers will be required to disclose sustainability reporting by the CSRD, which became effective on January 5, 2023. The CSRD expands the scope of companies that are required to disclose sustainability information. The CSRD also significantly increases the extent and level of detail required to be disclosed regarding sustainability matters by mandating the creation of European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), which will apply to entities that are required to make non-financial sustainability disclosures under the CSRD. On April 10, 2024, the European Parliament adopted a directive to postpone by two years the deadline for adopting the ESRS for certain sectors and for certain third-country undertakings.
EU UCITS Directive and AIFMD Review. Two EU directives regulate the EU collective investment funds industry: the directive relating to UCITS and the AIFMD. The UCITS directive, which covers mutual funds, establishes uniform rules, allowing them to be offered cross-border, while the AIFMD covers alternative funds, including private equity, private credit and hedge funds, and establishes the rules for authorizing, supervising, and overseeing Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs). On February 26, 2024, the EU Parliament adopted a Directive amending the AIFMD and the directive governing UCITS in the EU, often referred to as AIFMD II. The changes relate to delegation arrangements, liquidity risk management, supervisory reporting, provision of depositary and custody services, and loan origination by alternative investment funds. On March 26, 2024, the final legislative text of the Directive was published in the EU's official journal, and the implementation phase is expected to conclude by March or April 2026. The changes to the AIFMD and the UCITS Directive aim to: (1) strengthen investor protection; (2) improve firms' access to finance from sources other than banks; and (3) help complete the capital markets union by limiting national approaches when it comes to marketing alternative investment funds.
EU cross-border arrangements for UCITS management companies and AIFMs. On March 25, 2024, the official journal of the EU published four EU Commission Delegated and Implementing Regulations regarding the cross-border marketing and management of funds under the UCITS Directive and AIFMD. The regulations: (1) specify the information to be notified in relation to the cross-border activities of UCITS management companies, UCITS and AIFMs; (2) set out the form and content of such notifications; and (3) provide detail on the exchange of information between competent authorities on cross-border notification letters. These regulations became effective on April 14, 2024.
European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) Refit. On December 20, 2022, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published a final report on guidelines for reporting under EMIR. The guidelines aim to further harmonize and standardize the reporting under EMIR. This requires many new data fields and mandatory use of XML format. The reporting is effective starting April 29, 2024.
Money Market Fund Reform. On February 27, 2024, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) published its Thematic Review on Money Market Fund Reforms. The review takes stock of the measures adopted or planned by FSB member jurisdictions in response to the 2021 FSB Report, Policy Proposals to Enhance Money Market Fund Resilience. The review does not assess the
26

Management's Discussion and Analysis (continued)
of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (unaudited)
effectiveness of those policy measures in addressing risks to financial stability, as this will be the focus of separate follow-up work by the FSB in 2026.
The main purported money market fund vulnerability cited by jurisdictions is the mismatch between the liquidity of fund asset holdings and the redemption terms offered to investors, which may make money market funds susceptible to runs from sudden and disruptive redemptions. To address the cited vulnerabilities, the 2021 FSB Report provided a menu of policy options including: (1) imposing on redeeming investors the cost of their redemptions; (2) enhancing the ability to absorb credit losses; (3) addressing regulatory thresholds that may give rise to cliff effects; and (4) reducing liquidity transformation.
The review found that progress in implementing the 2021 FSB policy proposals has been uneven across FSB member jurisdictions. Authorities in all jurisdictions reported that they had implemented policies aimed at addressing cited money market fund vulnerabilities prior to the 2021 FSB Report. Since then, some jurisdictions have introduced new policy tools or recalibrated existing ones (e.g., China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, and the U.S.), while others are still in the process of developing or finalizing their reforms (e.g., EU, South Africa, and the UK). The review concludes that, given the cited vulnerabilities reported in individual jurisdictions, further progress on implementing the FSB policy toolkit would be needed to enhance money market fund resilience and limit the need for extraordinary central bank interventions during times of stress.
The review calls on FSB member jurisdictions that have not yet done so to review their policy frameworks and adopt tools to address cited money market fund vulnerabilities, taking into consideration the 2021 FSB policy proposals. Where relevant tools, such as minimum liquidity requirements, are already available, the review recommends that FSB jurisdictions consider whether these need to be re-calibrated to ensure their effective use and to maintain a sufficient level of money market fund resilience. It also recommends that the International Organization of Securities Commissions, consider the findings of this review when it revisits its 2012 Policy Recommendations for money market funds in light of the 2021 FSB Report. The FSB will take these findings into account in its monitoring of cited vulnerabilities and policy tools for money market funds.
Current Regulatory Developments– Potential Impacts
Federated Hermes has monitored, reviewed, assessed, and implemented changes in response to, and will continue to monitor, review, assess, and implement changes in response to, regulatory developments and requirements, as applicable, and their impact on its business, offerings, and Financial Condition. Federated Hermes actively participates, either individually or with industry trade groups (such as the Investment Company Institute), in the public comment process regarding regulatory developments that can significantly impact Federated Hermes’ business, offerings, and Financial Condition. Regulatory developments and regulatory requirements also are subject to legal challenge in court, and Federated Hermes’ considers initiating, participating in or supporting such legal challenges when management deems it necessary or appropriate. Federated Hermes also continues to monitor and assess the impact of the interest rate environment (whether increasing or decreasing), and any instability in the banking sector and financial markets, on asset values and money market fund and other fund asset flows, and related asset mixes, as well as the degree to which these factors impact Federated Hermes' institutional prime and municipal (or tax-exempt) money market business and Federated Hermes' Financial Condition.
The difficulty in, and cost of, complying with applicable regulatory developments and regulatory requirements increases with the number, complexity, and differing (and potentially conflicting) requirements of new or amended regulatory requirements, among other factors. In addition to the impact on Federated Hermes' AUM, revenues, operating income and other aspects of Federated Hermes' business, Federated Hermes' regulatory, product development and restructuring, and other efforts in response to regulatory developments and regulatory requirements, including the internal and external resources dedicated to such efforts, have had, and can continue to have, on a cumulative basis, a material impact on Federated Hermes' expenses and, in turn, Financial Condition.
Federated Hermes is unable to fully assess at this time whether, or the degree to which, any continuing efforts or potential options being evaluated in connection with modified or new regulatory developments and regulatory requirements ultimately will be successful. The degree of impact of regulatory developments and regulatory requirements on Federated Hermes' Financial Condition can vary, including in a material way, and is uncertain.
As of March 31, 2024, given the regulatory environment, and the possibility of future additional regulatory developments, requirements and oversight, Federated Hermes is unable to fully assess the impact of regulatory developments and requirements, and Federated Hermes' efforts related thereto, on its Financial Condition. Regulatory developments and requirements in the current regulatory environment, and Federated Hermes' efforts in responding to them, could have further material and adverse effects on Federated Hermes' Financial Condition.

Subsequent Event – Special Cash Dividend
On April 25, 2024, the board of directors declared a $1.31 per share dividend to Federated Hermes’ Class A and Class B common stock shareholders of record as of May 8, 2024 to be paid on May 15, 2024. The dividend, which will be paid from Federated Hermes’ existing cash balance, is considered an ordinary dividend for tax purposes and consists of a $0.31 quarterly dividend and a $1.00 special dividend. The special dividend is expected to decrease diluted earnings per share for the quarter ending June 30, 2024 by approximately $0.01 to $0.02 due to the application of the two-class method of calculating earnings per share.
