Fidelity Global Demographics Fund
Fund facts Fund story Back to top Invest with us

Investment objective

To achieve returns in excess of the MSCI All Country World Index NR over the suggested minimum investment time period of five to seven years.

A diversified portfolio of typically 50 to 70 companies globally where demographic factors are likely to be the most important driver of companies earnings over the medium-to-long term.

Uses a rigorous analysis to categorise companies into whether they have already benefited from demographic trends and those who are likely to win in the future - typically domestic leaders in new growth markets or innovators.

A portfolio of both ‘winners of today’ and ‘winners of tomorrow’ focused on companies with strong management and diversified across geographies and market cap.
