Fund objective
The investment objective of Federated Total Return U.S. Bond Fund is to provide total return over time. The fund pursues its objective by investing primarily in US dollar valued investment grade debt securities of US issuers. The fund’s investments are focused on government and corporate debt securities, as well as mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities. The fund may invest up to 25% of its assets in non-investment grade securities, and up to 20% of its assets in securities valued in currencies other than the US dollar on an unhedged basis. In addition, the fund may invest a portion of its assets in debt securities from issuers in emerging markets, when the Adviser considers the risk-return prospects to be attractive. The fund’s investment manager selects securities based on duration, yield curve, sector allocation, and individual security selection within each sector.
