The fund aims to provide investors with long-term capital growth, principally through investment in the equity securities of companies throughout the world which are involved in the design, manufacture, or sale of products and services used for or in connection with health care, medicine or biotechnology.
The fund is part of the Fidelity Sustainable Family of Funds and adopts a Sustainable Thematic strategy under which a minimum of 90% of the funds net assets will be analysed as to whether they maintain sustainable characteristics and a minimum of 70% of the funds net assets will be invested in securities deemed to maintain sustainable characteristics, as described in the section entitled 1.3.2 (b) Fidelity Sustainable Family of Funds. When selecting investments, the funds investment universe will be reduced by at least 20% due to the exclusion of issuers on the basis of their ESG characteristics.
The fund is actively managed. The Investment Manager will, when selecting investments for the fund and for the purposes of monitoring risk, reference MSCI AC World Health Care Index (the Index) as the Index constituents are representative of the type of companies the fund invests in. The funds performance can be assessed against its Index.
The Investment Manager has a wide range of discretion relative to the Index. While the fund will hold assets that are components of the Index, it may also invest in companies, countries or sectors that are not included in, and that have different weightings from, the Index in order to take advantage of investment opportunities. It is expected that over long time periods, the funds performance will differ from the Index. However, over short time periods, the funds performance may be close to the Index, depending on market conditions.
