Fidelity Strategic Funds are multi-asset-class strategies that seek to address key income needs—bond income from global sources, non-bond income from dividend-paying securities, and real return to help protect against inflation—by investing in a diversified mix of fixed income and/or equity investments chosen for their historical combined performance.
Allocating assets to a combination of investment types with the potential to behave differently as market conditions change can result in potentially lower volatility over the long term if underperformance in one market is offset by outperformance in another.
|Strategic Income Fund||
This fund invests in four of the most sought-after U.S. and international bond markets: domestic high yield, U.S. government, developed foreign markets, and emerging markets.
|Strategic Dividend & Income Fund||
This fund invests in a broad array of dividend-oriented securities, including high-dividend-paying, value-oriented common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible securities, and real estate-related investments such as real estate investment trusts (REITs).
|Strategic Real Return Fund||
This fund offers the potential for inflation protection by investing in debt securities such as U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Bonds and floating rate loans, as well as commodity- and real estate-related investments.
Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.
High yield/non-investment grade bonds involve greater price volatility and risk of default than investment grade bonds.
Floating-rate loans generally are subject to restrictions on resale and they sometimes trade infrequently in the secondary market, and as a result may be more difficult to value, buy, or sell. A floating-rate loan might not be fully collateralized, which may cause the floating-rate loan to decline significantly in value.
