Investing in equity sector funds in a tax-deferred account, such as the Fidelity Personal Retirement Annuity (FPRA), provides targeted exposure to specific segments of the economy, allows you to trade and rebalance without tax consequences*, and eliminates the need to track and report capital gains and losses. It's important to keep in mind that because of their narrow focus, sector funds can be more volatile than diversified equity funds.
