Fidelity Sector ETFs FAQs
Learn more about what Fidelity's sector ETFs have to offer.

Free commission offer applies to online purchases of select iShares ETFs in a Fidelity account. Fidelity accounts may require minimum balances. The sale of ETFs is subject to an activity assessment fee (from $0.01 to $0.03 per $1,000 of principal). iShares ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity if held less than 30 days.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.

* Expense ratio is the total annual fund operating expense ratio from the fund's most recent prospectus.

ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.

IMPORTANT FEE INFORMATION: Certain of Fidelity’s stock and bond index mutual funds have max short-term redemption fees of up to 1.5% for eligible shares held less than a maximum of 90 days. Fidelity may deduct a small-balance maintenance fee of $12 from a fund balance with a value of less than $2,000 in shares, while Vanguard funds may charge an annual account service fee of $20 for fund balances below $10,000. Fidelity and Vanguard offer other share classes of these funds with different investment minimums and expense ratios.
Please note: When comparing funds, please consider all important factors, including information pertaining to fund fees, fund features, and fund objectives. While funds may track an index, the indices and strategies employed in seeking to achieve an investment goal may be different. Each fund’s investment object and strategy and index tracked to achieve investment goals may differ. For new investors, funding investment minimums may be different.

Because of their narrow focus, sector investments tend to be more volatile than investments that diversify across many sectors and companies.

Before investing in any mutual fund or exchange-traded fund, you should consider its investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus, offering circular or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
