Introducing Fidelity Worldwide Investment

Fidelity Worldwide Investment was established nearly 40 years ago and serves the investment needs of individuals, institutions and advisers in markets outside the Americas, providing mutual funds, defined contribution pensions, segregated portfolios and multi-manager products. Fidelity and its subsidiaries manage assets of US$290 billion for investors worldwide (*1).

Fidelity's international network enables it to combine a global approach with a local focus. This has helped Fidelity to become the European leader in pan-European Equities (*2).

The company is also a top foreign asset manager in Japan and is expanding rapidly in the other markets of the Asia Pacific region. In 2005, Fidelity opened asset management businesses in Australia, Germany, India and South Korea. Fidelity has a presence (*3) in 23 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bermuda, China (including Hong Kong), France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates and the UK. (*4)

Fidelity's US affiliate, Fidelity Management and Research LLC. (FMR), was founded in Boston in 1946 and is one of the US’s largest mutual fund companies. Fidelity has constant access to the investment analysis carried out by FMR. Fidelity benefits from the insights of more than 900 investment professionals around the globe (*5), covering 95% of the world's stock markets by capitalisation (*6).

Fidelity’s dedication to investment management has earned the company many awards. It has been declared Best Larger Group over three years (for the fourth consecutive year) and Best Larger Group over five years (third time in the last four years) by independent agency Standard & Poor's at the 2007 European Fund Awards (*7). Fidelity was one of only four fund management groups to achieve the Gold Standard Award 2006, its entry covering both Fidelity and FundsNetwork™.

Fidelity has also won a reputation for innovation for its early application of new technologies. In the UK, the company launched the first online fund supermarket, FundsNetwork, for both private investors and advisers. FundsNetwork services are now available in Germany and Taiwan, too.

Independent and privately owned, Fidelity strives always to take the longer-term view. By being a specialist in asset management, Fidelity believes it is ideally placed to act in the best interests of fund investors, to develop innovative products and to deliver the highest levels of customer service.
