Thematic investing: Outcome-oriented

Fidelity's outcome-oriented mutual funds and ETFs are designed to fulfill a specific objective within a portfolio which may help you weather long-term market changes and trends.

Outcome-oriented investing with Fidelity

Fidelity’s outcome-oriented investments help investors address specific portfolio needs–such as lower volatility of returns or potential for protection against rising inflation.

Reducing downside risk can potentially improve returns over time by preserving the amount of capital that can compound in up markets.

Even modest levels of inflation have the potential to erode purchasing power over time.
