Share class name changes (specific to open-architecture products)

As well as the above, Fidelity changed the name of their N share classes to W. The changes are summarised in the Fidelity notification letter above.


Share class conversions in October and November 2019 (specific to open-architecture products)

Fidelity are planning to move investments in certain share classes into alternative share classes. In the majority of cases this will be moving Y class into either W or P class. This will be done in three tranches, 22 October 2019, 5 November 2019 and 19 November 2019. Consolidating these share classes will simplify the fund range and standardise the naming convention used. As a result of the conversions, the fund's ongoing charges figure (OCF) will go down. Details can be found in the Fidelity share class conversion letter above.
