Bond Funds: Multisector

Multisector bond funds offer exposure to a broad mix of bonds, including both high yield and investment grade securities issued by the U.S. government and foreign governments, as well as domestic and foreign corporations.

Reasons to consider multisector bond funds

  • Funds may provide exposure to many types of fixed income securities.
  • Funds can focus on various investment strategies.
  • Funds are a potentially good way to build a fixed income portfolio through a single fund.

Find multisector bond funds

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.

Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, and economic risks. Any fixed-income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
