Investors can access Fidelity's research expertise for as little as US$2,500, the minimum investment in its range of equity funds. The funds are part of the range offered through Fidelity Funds, an open-ended Luxembourg-based investment company. There are 33 equity funds to choose from. Investors keen about a particular country's prospects can choose a Country Select equity fund, offering exposure to a single country and region. The equity funds are offered under a single price structure, doing away with the bid-and-offer spreads found in other funds. The equity funds range covers all main markets. Fidelity's Major Market range is designed specifically for investors seeking global or regional diversification. They invest mainly in bigger companies in the world's better known markets. They aim for capital growth and include the America Fund, Europe Fund, International Fund, Japan Fund, Pacific Fund, Southeast Asia Fund and Country Select Funds. Country Select Funds are for more aggressive investors seeking to increase exposure to a specific geography or theme as part of a portfolio. Choice of stocks is based on detailed company research and analysis and frequent company visits. These funds tend to be more volatile than funds investing in larger stock markets. The Pacific Basin Fund range includes the ASEAN Fund, Asian Special Situations Fund, Australia Fund, the Hong Kong and China Fund, Indonesia Fund, the Japan Smaller Companies Fund, Korea Fund, Malaysia Fund, Singapore Fund and the Thailand Fund. Fidelity is also represented in emerging markets through the Latin America Fund. Investors wanting exposure to Europe can choose from the European Smaller Companies Fund and funds investing in France, Germany and Britain, among others.
