Decades of investing and innovating

We have been investing and innovating since 1969

It has been more than 45 years since we were founded, so we’ve seen many market cycles – whether it be bulls and bears or booms and busts. This experience has given us an in-depth knowledge of how markets perform, which helps us find the right paths through many different investment environments.

Throughout this time, the needs of our clients have always steered our decisions. Which is why we’ve kept investing as our core activity. We are not a bank. We don’t do insurance. We are purely and simply investors. It’s a particular focus, but we believe this is what allows us to excel – and, even more importantly, to repay the trust that over 1.1m UK clients place in us.

The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested. Fidelity does not give information about products and services and does not provide investment advice based on individual circumstances. If you are unsure of the suitability of an investment you should speak to an adviser.
