Important documents Before investing please ensure that you have read the Fidelity Key Features Document (incorporating the Fidelity Client Terms) and the fund information documents. These can be found by clicking on the 'Important documents' link.
Fund Objective The Fund aims to deliver a total return (the combination of capital growth and income) of at least 5% per annum above the 3-month GBP LIBOR rate, before any charges are taken, over any five year period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over five years, or any other period, and investors may not get back the original amount they invested. The Fund is a multi-asset fund that invests across a range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income securities, convertibles, cash and near cash. Exposure to these assets may be gained either directly or indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives. The Fund may also invest indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives in other asset classes such as property and gold. The currency exposure of the Fund will be actively managed, seeking to enhance returns, with a minimum of 30% of the fund exposed to sterling and a minimum of 60% in developed market currencies (including sterling). Derivatives may be used for investment purposes, efficient portfolio management and hedging. The fund manager has a flexible top-down approach to the allocation of capital between different types of assets in response to changes in economic conditions and asset values. This approach combines in-depth research to work out the value of assets over the medium to long-term, with analysis of market reactions to events to identify investment opportunities. In particular, the Manager seeks to respond when asset prices move away from a reasonable sense of ?fair? long-term value due to market reactions to events. The Fund seeks to manage risk by investing globally across multiple asset classes, sectors, currencies and countries. The Fund will typically invest 20-60% of its assets in equities and convertibles, 30-75% in fixed income securities or cash, and up to 20% in other assets.

Fund versus Morningstar Category
The value of the fund and the income from it can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invested. If your fund invests in overseas markets, changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of your investment. If your fund invests in small and emerging markets, these can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Past performance is not a guide to future returns.
For funds that invest in bonds, please be aware that the price of bonds is influenced by movements in interest rates, changes in the credit rating of bond issuers, and other factors such as inflation and market dynamics. In general, as interest rates rise the price of a bond will fall. The risk of default is based on the issuer's ability to make interest payments and to repay the loan at maturity. Default risk may therefore vary between different government issuers as well as between different corporate issuers.
Some of the performance and risk data presented may start before the share class was launched. If so, the data prior to the launch date of the share class is based on the fund or share class that has similar or higher charges, in order to provide an indication of longer term performance and risk. Please refer to the launch date and performance start date in the fund factsheet to determine whether the data has been extended.Past Performance and Risk & Volatility figures are presented in British Pounds Sterling (GBP). Fund returns are calculated on a Nav to Nav or Bid to Bid basis with income reinvested either after tax (for UK-domiciled funds) or gross of tax (for offshore funds). Performance figures include the effect of the OCF/TER. To cover distribution costs a separate service fee is now also charged on most funds, which is not included in the past performance figures. Consequently the past performance of the fund may be less than that shown on the chart due to the effect of the service fee.
