† 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 02/01/2019 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.
Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.
International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards. Prices of emerging-market and frontier-market securities can be significantly more volatile than the prices of securities in developed countries, and currency risk and political risks are accentuated in emerging markets.
High-yield, lower-rated securities generally entail greater market, credit/default and liquidity risks and may be more volatile than investment-grade securities.
Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.
The fund’s benchmark 2 is a custom index comprised of three separate indexes which track various security types. The weightings assigned to each component index of the benchmark are fixed, but do not necessarily reflect the fund’s allocation to the type of fixed-income securities represented by the component indexes, which will vary.
Product classifications noted at the top are Federated's internal classifications.
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.
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.
