Fund Description

The Federated Kaufmann Fund Class R Shares (KAUFX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow an investor’s portfolio. KAUFX specifically focuses on those U.S. small- and mid-cap stocks that exhibit growth at reasonable prices. Fund management uses a bottom-up approach in hopes of outperforming its benchmark index. KAUFX has no sector requirements and could be nondiversified across sectors or industries.

KAUFX has high expenses and given its growth mandate, is best suited as a side position in a larger equity portfolio. The fund is managed by Federated Global.
