PITTSBURGH, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Federated Investors, Inc.

Federated Capital Income Fund (CAPFX) earned the Lipper Fund Award in the Mixed-Asset Target Allocation Conservative Funds classification and ranked best out of 91 funds for the 10-year period.  Federated Capital Income 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.

Federated Strategic Income Fund (STIAX) earned the Lipper Fund Award in the Multi-Sector Income Funds category and ranked best out of 78 funds for the 10-year period.  The fund pursues a high level of current income by investing in a strategic mix of bond sectors: U.S. high-yield, U.S. high-quality (government and corporate) and international (emerging and developed).  Federated Strategic Income Fund is managed by a team of fixed-income portfolio managers.
