Fidelity Investments Canada ULC Launches New Global Small Cap Fund

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2022 /CNW/ - Today, Fidelity Investments Canada ULC (Fidelity) launched Fidelity Global Small Cap Opportunities Fund (the Fund).

The Fund invests primarily in equity securities of small capitalization companies located anywhere in the world and aims to achieve long-term capital growth.

"At Fidelity, our focus is on providing investors with a wide array of funds to choose from, to help support their individual financial goals," said Kelly Creelman, Senior Vice President, Products and Marketing, Fidelity Investments Canada ULC. "Our new global small cap strategy leverages Fidelity's robust research capabilities and the portfolio managers' bottom-up security selection."

This new Fund will be co-managed by portfolio managers Connor Gordon and Chris Maludzinski. Connor and Chris will aim to uncover value by identifying high quality companies that are mispriced.

Key investor benefits:
  • Concentrated portfolio - A high conviction portfolio of typically 40-80 small-cap stocks anywhere in the world.
  • Mispriced high-quality companies - Exposure to mispriced investment opportunities where the market has under-reacted to positive change or over-reacted to negative change.
  • Broader opportunity set – A significantly larger number of investable companies exist among global small caps, which generally have less research coverage resulting in more opportunities for mispricing.
  • Strong long-term growth and recovery potential - Smaller cap companies can have faster growth rates than larger cap companies as they are starting from a lower base.
