Personal investing

Past performance is not a guide to what might happen in the future. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invested. Investments in small and emerging markets can be more volatile than other overseas markets. For funds that invest in overseas markets, the return may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. In the case of Fidelity Cash Fund, Fidelity Gross Accumulating Cash Fund, Fidelity MoneyBuilder Cash ISA fund and any other Fidelity currency funds, yields will fluctuate with changes in interest rates and capital values may also be adversely affected if any of the institutions with which cash is deposited suffers insolvency or any other financial difficulties.
If regular withdrawals are made from an investment, this may reduce the capital over time if the fund's growth does not compensate for the withdrawals.

In certain countries, and for certain types of investments, transaction costs are higher and liquidity is lower than elsewhere. There may also be limited opportunities to find alternative ways of managing cash flows especially where the focus of investment is on small and medium sized firms. For funds specialising in such countries and investment types, transactions, particularly those large in size, are likely to have a greater impact on the costs of running a fund than similar transactions in larger funds. Prospective investors should bear this in mind in selecting funds.

Tax - ISAs

Please note that, with effect from 6 April 2008, all Personal Equity Plans ("PEPs") were automatically re-classified as Individual Savings Accounts ("ISAs"). Mini and Maxi ISAs ceased to exist as such. Mini Cash ISAs became Cash ISAs, and Maxi ISAs containing only stocks and shares became Stocks and Shares ISAs. Maxi ISAs containing both cash and stocks and shares were split into a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Shares ISA. Tax free means free of personal liability to income and capital gains taxes. The value of tax savings and eligibility to invest in an ISA will depend on individual circumstances. All tax rules are subject to legislation and may change in the future. To qualify for the Fidelity ISA, you must be 18 or over and resident and ordinarily resident in the UK for tax purposes.

OEICs and Unit Trusts

Income allocations from OEICs and authorised unit trusts are in the form of dividends or interest.

Dividend allocations

Dividend Allocations are treated as being made net of a tax credit equal to 10% of the grossed up dividend. Taxpayers subject to basic or starting rate tax of £32,010 have no further tax to pay. Higher rate taxpayers (up to £150,000) are subject to a further 22.5% tax on the gross dividend. Dividend income above £150,000 tax limit is taxed at 37.5%. Non taxpayers are not able to reclaim the tax credit.

Interest Allocations

In most cases, Fidelity is obliged to deduct income tax at 20% from interest allocations before paying these out or reinvesting them. Tax vouchers reflecting the tax that has been deducted will be sent to you whenever a unit trust/OEIC subfund pays an income. You should keep the tax vouchers to help you complete your annual tax return. If you are a non-taxpayer, these can also be used to reclaim tax deducted from interest allocations. The income will therefore be paid/reinvested net of tax. Lower or basic rate taxpayers have no further tax liability to meet and only higher rate taxpayers will have to pay further tax equal to 20% of the gross income. You may also be liable to capital gains tax when cashing in all or part of your units, if your gain and other gains in the relevant tax year exceed the annual exemption.

Bond funds

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 (and vice versa). Bonds with a longer time to maturity are generally affected to a greater degree. 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.

Investment Trusts

Shares listed on stock markets in some areas of Asia can be more volatile and less marketable than in more developed stock markets. Investors should also remember that the share price of Investment Trusts can be influenced by the demand for those shares as well as the performance of the underlying investments.
