Fund Description

The fund pursues its investment objective of long-term capital growth by investing primarily in a portfolio of equity securities issued by foreign companies that the fund's investment adviser, Federated Global Investment Management Corp. (the "Adviser"), has deemed as the best opportunities across its investable universe relative to the company's competitive position or its growth prospects. The Adviser expects that, normally, the fund will be invested primarily in foreign stocks in developed markets.
