This hypothetical example is illustrative and doesn’t represent the performance of any security in a Fidelity HSA. Assumes the investor receives 7% investment growth. Actual net returns will be based on the investor’s investment choices within the Fidelity HSA. This example does not account for the effect of interest, dividends, and taxes. Systematic investing does not ensure a profit and does not protect against loss in a declining market. Consider your current and anticipated investment horizon when making an investment decision, as the illustration may not reflect this. The assumed rate of return used in this example is not guaranteed. Investments that have potential for a 7% annual rate of return also come with risk of loss.
