PITTSBURGH, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Federated Investors, Inc. (NYSE:
FII), one of the nation's largest investment managers, today announced that
the Federated Capital Income Fund (CAPFX) received a Lipper Fund Award for its
category-leading performance. The fund earned the award based on Lipper's
calculation of consistent three-year risk-adjusted performance ending Dec. 31,
2013.

Federated Capital Income Fund earned the Lipper Fund Award in the Mixed-Asset
Target Allocation Conservative Funds classification and ranked best out of 80
portfolios and 295 funds for the three-year period. The fund seeks to provide
high current monthly income relative to the broad market through a diversified
portfolio of income-producing stocks and bonds. The fund invests in high
dividend-paying stocks of undervalued and market-leading companies across all
market sectors, as well as a strategic mix of bond sectors: U.S. high-yield,
U.S. high-quality (government and corporate) and international (emerging and
developed). Federated Capital Income Fund is managed by a team of equity and
fixed-income portfolio managers.

investors looking for income in today's low-yield, volatile environment," said

Companies. "For the second consecutive year, Lipper has recognized the fund's
strong performance." Lipper in 2013 recognized the fund for consistent return
over the 10-year period ending Dec. 31, 2012.

International investing involves special risks including currency risk,
increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other
financial standards. Prices of emerging-markets securities can be
significantly more volatile than the prices of securities in developed
countries, and currency risk and political risks are accentuated in emerging
markets.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest
rates can cause a decline in their prices.

High-yield, lower-rate securities generally entail greater market,
credit/default and liquidity risk and may be more volatile than
investment-grade securities.
