Shaun Copeman has joined Federated Hermes as a senior credit trader, having left Fidelity Investments in April after eight years. Copeman adds to a growing trading team under Dan Nicholls, head of trading.

As a very experienced dealer with five years as a senior derivatives trader at Insight Investments under his belt, a further eight covering fixed income and FX at Fidelity, plus knowledge of equities and multi-asset products, Copeman is highly respected in the field and was reportedly recommended by many of his peers for the job.

Nicholls also added Dominic Eccles to his trading desk on the equity side in July 2020. Eccles joined from Woodford Investment Management where he had worked for four years.

Dan Nicholls, head of trading, at the International business of Federated Hermes said, “We are pleased to welcome Shaun Copeman to the trading team at the International business of Federated Hermes. Shaun joins as senior credit trader, bringing with him over 15 years of experience, most recently having spent 8 years at Fidelity Investments. We have an excellent and experienced trading desk which will only be further enhanced by Shaun’s expertise.”
