Expense Summary contains information about the direct and indirect costs of owning a Federated fund investment, plus illustrates these costs over a hypothetical 10-year period.


Your Expenses shows your account's "ending value" for the quarter, as well as the fund's annual expense ratio-which is its total annual operating expense as a percentage of its assets. "Your quarterly expenses" represent what your share of the expenses were, based on the size of your account, for the quarter covered by this statement. Of course, the fund's expenses are actually accruing constantly, and are deducted from the fund's pool of assets periodically, before the fund's total return and net asset value are calculated. It is important to understand that "Your Expenses" are not directly charged to your account. They are simply part of the total fees and expenses that are incurred by the fund.


Hypothetical Expenses shows how a hypothetical account would share in the fund's overall expenses, year by year over a ten-year period. This example is based on a $10,000 investment that earns an imaginary 5% per year-and not actual fund returns. These numbers are used as an example. They are not intended to reflect your account activity or the fund's actual performance.
