Documents

DISCLOSURES

1 If this product is new, it will not have completed its first financial reporting period. Please check back to view future shareholder reports. For the new share of an existing fund, you may wish to view recent shareholder reports of another share of that fund by visiting another share.

The “As of Date” for regulatory documents  is the date when the document is effective with the SEC and made available on Federated’s website.

2 Form N-Q represents the first or third fiscal quarter end portfolio holdings, whichever is most recent, and is filed with the SEC 60 days following the end of the month representing the fund's fiscal first or third quarter. Portfolio holdings for a fund's second and fourth quarters are available in the shareholder reports.

PDF file consists of a President's Message or Market Overview (if applicable) and Annual/Semi-Annual Shareholder Report. NOTE: To be sure you have the most recent information, please access both the Annual Report and the Semi-Annual Report.

Distributions and Taxes

DISCLOSURES

† The funds expense ratio is from the most recent prospectus. The expense ratio may reflect voluntary fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements determined by the funds Advisor and its affiliates. The voluntary waivers and/or reimbursements, if applicable, are in effect up to but not including the later of 10/01/2019 or the date of the funds next effective prospectus.

The fund is the successor to the MDT Small Cap Growth Fund pursuant to a reorganization that took place on December 8, 2006. Prior to that date, the fund had no investment operations. Accordingly, the performance information shown for periods prior to that date is that of the MDT Small Cap Growth Fund.

Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative.

Total return may have been lower in the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements.

After-tax returns are calculated using a standard set of assumptions. Actual after-tax returns depend on each investor’s personal tax situation, and are likely to differ from those shown. The stated returns assume the highest historical federal income and capital gains tax rates, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable state and local taxes. Return After Taxes on Distributions assumes a continued investment in the fund and shows the effect of taxes on fund distributions. Return After Taxes on Distribution and Sale of Fund Shares assumes all shares were redeemed at the end of each measurement period, and shows the effect of any taxable gain (or offsetting loss) on redemption, as well as the effects of taxes on fund distributions. After-tax returns are not relevant to investors holding shares through tax-deferred programs, such as IRA, 401(k) plans. The after-tax average annual total returns are based on the 37% tax bracket and include the 3.8% tax on net investment income.

Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

Small company stocks may be less liquid and subject to greater price volatility than large capitalization stocks.

The quantitative models and analysis used by the fund may perform differently than expected and negatively affect fund performance.

Product classifications noted at the top are Federated's internal classifications.

The holdings percentages are based on net assets at the close of business on the date above, and may not necessarily reflect adjustments that are routinely made when presenting net assets for formal financial statement purposes. Because this is a managed portfolio, the investment mix will change.

Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. To obtain a summary prospectus or prospectus containing this and other information, contact us or view the prospectus provided on this website. Please carefully read the summary prospectus or prospectus before investing.

Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk.
