Federated Perspective

Dan Mahr, managing director of research for Federated MDT, answers questions about this quantitative approach that seeks to eliminate behavioral influences at the heart of diversified stock-selection.

Investment Approach

Our funds seek to evaluate companies according to fundamental and technical factors that measure value, growth and quality characteristics. A particular strength is our ability to choose companies with specific combinations of characteristics that can predict outperformance.
Views as of February 6 2019 and are subject to change based on market conditions and other factors. These views should not be construed as a recommendation for any specific security or sector.
“The MDT process is highly repeatable and unemotional because we’re looking at math and statistics rather than making subjective human calls.”
Client Portfolio Manager Greg Sterzel
Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Mid-capitalization companies often have narrower markets and limited managerial and financial resources compared to larger and more established companies.

Small company stocks may be less liquid and subject to greater price volatility than large capitalization stocks.

The quantitative models and analysis used by the funds may perform differently than expected and negatively affect fund performance.

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