1. ADRs are securities that represent shares of non-U.S. companies who want to list on an American exchange; each ADR represents a certain number of a company's regular shares. ETPs can include exchange-traded funds, exchange-traded notes, unit investment trusts, closed-end funds, master limited partnerships and certain grant or trusts. A completion fund is a mutual fund designed for use in separately managed accounts that is used to gain exposure to stocks across different foreign countries/regions where ADRs are not available or appropriate.
2. The advisory fee does not cover charges resulting from trades effected with or through broker-dealers other than Fidelity Investments affiliates, mark-ups or mark-downs by broker-dealers, transfer taxes, exchange fees, regulatory fees, odd-lot differentials, handling charges, electronic fund and wire transfer fees, or any other charges imposed by law or otherwise applicable to your account. You will also incur underlying expenses associated with the investment vehicles selected.
MSCI EAFE Index (Net MA Tax) is a market capitalization-weighted index that is designed to measure the investable equity market performance for global investors in developed markets, excluding the U.S. and Canada. Index returns are adjusted for tax withholding rates applicable to U.S.-based mutual funds organized as Massachusetts business trusts. You cannot invest directly in an index. Securities indexes are not subject to fees and expenses typically associated with managed accounts.
Keep in mind that investing involves risk. The value of your investment will fluctuate over time, and you may gain or lose money.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
Stock markets are volatile and can fluctuate significantly in response to company, industry, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Investing in stock involves risks, including the loss of principal. Foreign securities are subject to interest rate, currency exchange rate, economic, and political risks—all of which are magnified in emerging markets.
