†dagger disclosure The fund's expense ratio is from the most recent prospectus, which shows that the fund is not waiving any expenses.
The fund’s Institutional Share commenced operations on March 30, 2012. For the period prior to the commencement of operations of the Institutional Shares, the performance information shown is for the fund’s A Shares. The performance of the A Shares has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses of the Institutional Shares since the Institutional Shares have a lower expense ratio than the expense ratio of the A Shares. The performance of the A Shares has been adjusted to reflect the absence of sales charges and to remove any voluntary waiver of the fund’s expenses related to the A Shares that may have occurred during the period prior to the commencement of operations of the Institutional Share.
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.
International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.
There are no guarantees that dividend-paying stocks will continue to pay dividends.
After-tax returns are calculated using a standard set of assumptions. Actual after-tax returns depend on each investor’s personal tax situation, and are likely to differ from those shown. The stated returns assume the highest historical federal income and capital gains tax rates, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable state and local taxes. Return After Taxes on Distributions assumes a continued investment in the fund and shows the effect of taxes on fund distributions. Return After Taxes on Distribution and Sale of Fund Shares assumes all shares were redeemed at the end of each measurement period, and shows the effect of any taxable gain (or offsetting loss) on redemption, as well as the effects of taxes on fund distributions. After-tax returns are not relevant to investors holding shares through tax-deferred programs, such as IRA, 401(k) plans. The after-tax average annual total returns are based on the 37% tax bracket and include the 3.8% tax on net investment income.

The fund may invest in Federated Hermes Portfolios that are not available to the public and provide for more effective diversification than is available through the purchase of individual securities. Where applicable, the fund holdings reflect exposure to underlying securities held by the portfolios.
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.
