Effective March 31, 2008 the fund's name was changed to Federated International Small-Mid Company Fund, formerly Federated International Small Company Fund. The fund changed one of its investment policies, allowing the fund to invest at least 80% of its assets in small and mid capitalization companies.
The fund’s Institutional Shares commenced operations on March 31, 2008. For the period prior to the commencement of operations of the Institutional Shares, the performance information shown is for the fund’s Class A Shares, adjusted to reflect the absence of sales charges and adjusted to remove any voluntary waiver of fund expenses related to the Class A Shares that may have occurred prior to commencement of operations of the Institutional Shares. The performance of the Class A Shares has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses of the Institutional Shares since the Institutional Shares are estimated to have a lower expense ratio than the expense ratio of the Class A Shares. See the prospectus for other fees and expenses that apply to a continued investment in the fund.
International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.
