Innovation at Fidelity Labs

To an outsider, Fidelity Labs could easily be mistaken for a unit of a Silicon Valley tech company. With a broad array of scientists and researchers, Fidelity Labs innovates using cutting edge technology, a design-forward approach, and a lean start-up mentality. This type of innovation is rare in many industries, especially a financial services organization.

Innovation has long been the backbone of what we do. In fact, Fidelity was founded when a Boston lawyer-turned-money-manager took a creative approach to investing by charting financial market data in real time—literally on the walls of his office.

Today, we continue our commitment to innovation by identifying and exploring emerging technologies that incubate new products, services, and even businesses. This helps ensure that we continue to give our customers access to leading-edge products and services that empower their financial lives.

Sean Belka, Director of Fidelity Center for Applied Technology explains, "Innovation is in the DNA of the firm. We want to know, how can we use emerging technology to create a better experience with better outcomes? That's the question we ask ourselves every day."
