New open-ended funds will track Europe excluding the UK, Japan, Pacific excluding Japan, and emerging markets equities, adding to existing US, UK and global products.

The funds will be priced as follows:

Index Ongoing charge
Fidelity Index UK Fund FTSE All Share 0.09%

The funds will be available through FundsNetwork for advisers and will be managed by Geode Capital Management, a US-based institutional asset manager with more than £100 billion of assets under management. Fidelity will also offer the funds to wealth and investment managers if they fit their investment criteria.  

‘Whilst active management remains at the core of Fidelity’s investment philosophy, we are pleased to be able to meet the growing demand for index funds by bringing Geode’s proven passive capability to the UK market,’ said Ben Waterhouse, Fidelity’s head of UK retail sales.
