Select 50: our favourite funds - selected by experts

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Select 50 is not a personal recommendation to buy funds. Equally, if a fund you own is not on Select 50, we’re not recommending you sell it. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to one of Fidelity’s advisers or an authorised financial adviser of your choice.

Expert recommendations to help you decide


With thousands of funds to choose from, building your portfolio can be a real challenge but Select 50 can help you choose from the range of funds available on our website.

The funds are chosen by investment experts and feature active and passive funds, investment trusts and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

We aim to limit the number of funds to 50, but at times it may be slightly more or less than this. They all represent the highest-conviction (or favourite) picks.

We partner with Fundhouse, an independent fund research company, to add independence and enhance our fund selection process.
