Empowering the investment community with ESG education and encouraging the sale of responsible financial products


Federated Hermes wanted to develop an instructive and interactive multi-course curriculum on incorporating ESG consideration in their portfolios. The program would be comprehensive and actionable, as well as eligible for continuing education credits.



KKS Advisors, a dss⁺ company, created a web-based three-course curriculum, for Federated Hermes that covers ESG 101, ESG Data and Investment Implementation, and ESG Business Implementation for Investment Advisors. The purpose of this program is to educate investment advisors on how to identify key concepts of ESG, uncover the link to alpha, understand and navigate ESG integration practices, and talk with new clients and existing clients about ESG.

This curriculum is available to the public via the web here: https://info.federatedinvestors.com/Responsible-Investing-Institute.html
