Why invest with us

We’re here to help you make sense of the complex financial world. But why should you choose us over the competition? Well, we think these are some pretty good reasons...

Over 50 years' experience

We’ve seen it all

It has been more than 50 years* since we were founded. We’ve seen many market cycles – bull and bear, boom and bust. We have stayed the course through different investment environments regardless of market performance.

The needs of our clients have always steered our decisions, which is why we’ve stuck to our core activity of investing. We are not a bank, and we don’t do insurance. We are purely and simply investors. We believe this is what allows us to excel – and, even more importantly, to repay the trust placed in us by our clients.

When you need information or support for your account, you can speak to our helpful associates based in the UK and Ireland on our freephone number. However, if you need personal advice on investments we recommend you speak to an authorised financial adviser.

How is your money protected?

Fidelity has different companies that provide and distribute investments to our clients in the UK. All of these companies are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, which requires us to have appropriate systems and controls for managing our business, with strict rules about the way we hold client money and assets.

How we run our business

We train many of our fund managers through our rigorous Portfolio Manager Academy programme. New portfolio managers initially manage pilot funds to test their ideas with our own money first. To our clients we offer tried and tested funds as a matter of principle.

Our portfolio managers are compensated on their long-term performance so that client and manager time horizons and interests are aligned. The same is true for our management, whose shareholdings are for the duration of their careers with the company.

Remember, 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.
