A Relentlessly Disciplined Approach to Small-Cap Investing
When it comes to long-term return potential, small-cap stocks offer abundant investment opportunities. But with their historically higher returns comes a typically higher level of volatility. Federated MDT Small Cap Core Fund’s stock selection process combines systematic, fundamentally based stock selection tools with rigorous investment analysis to pursue consistent outperformance while managing risk.
