The funds will be priced as follows:

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.
