DISCLOSURES

dagger disclosure 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 12/01/2019 or the date of the funds next effective prospectus.

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.

The fund's 30-day yield will fluctuate from period to period.  Such fluctuations, which may be significant, are due to a variety of factors. In particular, the fund's investment in another investment company that owns inflation protected securities (the "Core Fund") may cause the fund's 30-day yield to vary substantially due to: (a) adjustments based on changes in the rate of inflation or deflation that affect the dividends the fund may receive from income earned on the Core Fund's portfolio and (b) the Core Fund's practice of paying dividends in the final quarter of each taxable year sufficient to avoid the payment of excise taxes or the payment of a return of capital, which could result in unusually large or small dividends in that quarter.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

High-yield, lower-rated securities generally entail greater market, credit/default and liquidity risks and may be more volatile than investment-grade securities.

The fund’s use of derivative instruments involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other traditional instruments.

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.

The ratings agencies that provided the quality breakdown ratings are Standard and Poor's, Moody's and Fitch. When ratings vary, the highest rating is used. Credit ratings of A or better are considered to be high credit quality; credit ratings of BBB are good credit quality, and the lowest category of investment grade; credit ratings BB and below are lower-rated securities ("junk bonds"); and credit ratings of CCC or below have high default risk. The credit quality breakdown does not give effect to the impact of any credit derivative investments made by the fund.

Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

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.

Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk.

Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
