The Fidelity Select 50 Balanced Fund is a fund of funds that aims to generate growth and income over the longer-term.

Ayesha Akbar, its manager, blends together funds from the Select 50, which is a list of funds that our experts view as the best of the best. The fund provides instant access to a global range of assets, from equities to bonds, as well as alternative assets like gold and other commodities.

I spoke to Ayesha recently and asked her how she runs the fund, how it’s currently positioned and what events she will be keeping an eye on in the coming months.

More on Fidelity Select 50 Balanced Fund

Important information The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Overseas investments will be affected by movements in currency exchange rates. There is a risk that the issuers of bonds may not be able to repay the money they have borrowed or make interest payments. When interest rates rise, bonds may fall in value. Rising interest rates may cause the value of your investment to fall. Select 50 is not a personal recommendation to buy or sell a fund. Investors should note that the views expressed may no longer be current and may have already been acted upon. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.
