Fund Aims

The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Fidelity Asia Fund. That fund aims to achieve long term capital growth from a portfolio made up of the shares of companies throughout the Pacific Basin, but excluding Japan. The portfolio is likely to have a bias towards larger companies. However, the fund operator is not restricted in the choice of company either by size or industry, or in terms of the geographical split of the portfolio, which is largely determined by the availability of attractive investment opportunities, rather than the outlook for each market.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Source of portfolio data: FundsLibrary. Source of performance data: Financial Express (FE). We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of product charges, or any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
