Three new offerings

June 14, 2016 — Fidelity added three funds to its Index line-up, creating a more robust offering of products for our customers: Fidelity Large Cap Growth Index Fund (FSUIX), Fidelity Large Cap Value Index (FLCDX), and Fidelity Total International Index (FTIGX).

A wide range of choices

If you're looking to build a portfolio of low-cost index funds, you'll find a wide array of choices at Fidelity. We now offer 19 index funds that attempt to track the performance of a range of the most widely followed equity and fixed income indexes. You'll find funds that seek to track U.S. stock market indexes of all market caps, as well as several international equity index funds, including an index fund dedicated to emerging markets. You'll also find bond index funds, including a fund that seeks to track the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. If you'd rather not build your own portfolio of index funds, you can buy a diversified portfolio containing a combination of four Fidelity stock and bond index funds.

Management experience

Fidelity has managed index funds for over 25 years. We understand why you're buying index funds—you want an investment that performs as closely to its benchmark as possible. Over time we seek to minimize tracking error — the amount an index fund's performance deviates from its target index. Whether through solid trading techniques that completely replicate an index or our use of statistical sampling and optimization techniques when necessary, we are focused on tracking benchmark performance and delivering results our clients have come to expect.
