Since its establishment 35 years ago, EFG Hermes has transformed from a pure play investment bank operating across the MENA region into a leading financial services corporation with a diverse product range and a strong footprint in Frontier Emerging Markets (FEMs) across both Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. In the past five years, EFG Hermes has expanded its geographical footprint and diversified its product offering to bring a constantly evolving portfolio of products to clients in some of the world’s most rapidly growing markets in the MENA region, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia. The reshaping of the business was executed against a series of strategic objectives, from strengthening operations, expanding beyond the MENA region, growing its non-bank financial instruments (NBFI) platform, expanding its public and private assets under management (AUMs), and establishing merchant banking services.

As EFG Hermes has grown, so too have its responsibilities towards stakeholders. Four intrinsic values have governed our Firm since its founding in 1984: Leadership, Value Creation, Commitment and Integrity. It is our commitment to these values that has set us apart from our competitors by informing all aspects of our strategy and nurturing a culture of mindfulness, diversity and inclusion. The Six Ps of our strategy: People, Products, Positioning, Presence, Profitability, and Public Responsibility function as the key pillars supporting our operations and the yardstick by which we evaluate our performance every year. Our commitment to sustainability and to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a primary component of how we approach ‘Public Responsibility’ and intrinsic to our vision of the future.
