Tax-sensitive investment management techniques are applied in managing taxable accounts (including "tax-loss harvesting") on a limited basis, at the discretion of Strategic Advisers primarily with respect to determining when assets in a client’s account should be bought or sold. As a discretionary portfolio manager, Strategic Advisers may elect to sell assets in an account at any time. A client may have a gain or loss when assets are sold. Strategic Advisers does not currently invest in tax-deferred products, such as variable insurance products, or in tax-managed funds, but may do so in the future if it deems such to be appropriate for a client. Strategic Advisers does not actively manage for alternative minimum taxes; state or local taxes; foreign taxes on non-U.S. investments; or estate, gift, or generation-skipping transfer taxes. Strategic Advisers relies on information provided by clients in an effort to provide tax-sensitive investment management, and does not offer tax advice. There are no guarantees as to the effectiveness of the tax-sensitive management techniques applied in serving to reduce or minimize a client’s overall tax liabilities, or as to the tax results that may be generated by a given transaction. Except where Fidelity Personal Trust Company (FPTC) is serving as trustee, clients are responsible for all tax liabilities arising from transactions in their accounts, for the adequacy and accuracy of any positions taken on tax returns, for the actual filing of tax returns, and for the remittance of tax payments to taxing authorities.
2. The tax-sensitive investment management strategies described apply only to a Fidelity® Tax-Managed International Equity Index Strategy account. An assumption of this paper is that investors want to accumulate tax-loss carryforwards through the use of ongoing tax-sensitive investing strategies. Unused tax-loss carryforwards can generally be carried forward indefinitely to offset future realized capital gains and some ordinary income, but at death they do not carry over or "pass down" to a surviving heir.
