Strategy And Objective

The Fund s investment objective is to provide total return by investing primarily in a mortgage-backed securities mutual fund and individual mortgage-backed securities, including collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs). The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing primarily in Mortgage Core Fund (the Underlying Fund ), a portfolio of Federated Hermes Core Trust. The investment objective of the Underlying Fund is to provide total return. Under normal market conditions, the Underlying Fund invests primarily in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) of investment-grade quality and seeks to provide returns consistent with investments in the market for U.S. home mortgages. The Underlying Fund will invest in MBS that are issued or guaranteed by U.S. government agencies or U.S. government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs). The Underlying Fund may invest in non-agency MBS, which are those not issued or guaranteed by GSEs. The Underlying Fund also may invest in U.S. government securities, asset-backed securities and certain derivative instruments. When selecting investments for the Fund, the Fund can invest in securities directly or in other investment companies, including, for example, the Underlying Fund and other funds advised by Federated Investment Management Company (the Adviser or the Underlying Fund Adviser ) or its affiliates. At times, the Fund s investment in the Underlying Fund may be a substantial portion of the Fund s portfolio. The Underlying Fund typically seeks to maintain an overall average dollar-weighted portfolio duration that is within one year above or below the Bloomberg Barclays Mortgage-Backed Securities Index (the Index ). The average dollar-weighted duration of the Index is approximately 2.3 years as of December 31, 2020. At times, the Underlying Fund Adviser s calculation of portfolio duration may result in variances outside this range. Duration is a measure of the price volatility of a fixed-income security as a result of changes in market rates of interest, based on the weighted average timing of the instrument s expected fixed interest and principal payments. The Underlying Fund Adviser seeks to create a portfolio, consisting of MBS, derivative instruments and other securities, that outperforms the Index. Based on fundamental analysis, the Underlying Fund Adviser will consider a variety of factors when making decisions to purchase or sell particular securities or derivative instruments. The Underlying Fund may, but is not required to, use derivative instruments, which are instruments that have a value based on another instrument, exchange rate or index, and may be used as substitutes for securities in which the Underlying Fund can invest, or to hedge against a potential loss in the underlying asset. There can be no assurance that the Underlying Fund s use of derivative instruments will work as intended. Derivative investments made by the Underlying Fund are included within the Underlying Fund s 80% policy and are calculated at market value. The Adviser employs the same management, security selection and derivative strategies when the Fund invests directly in the securities, instruments and investments in which the Underlying Fund invests. The Fund is a non-diversified portfolio of Federated Hermes Managed Pool Series. The Fund will invest its assets so that at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) are invested in mortgage investments. The Fund will notify shareholders at least 60 days in advance of any change in its investment policy that would enable the Fund to invest, under normal circumstances, less than 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in mortgage investments.
