Fund Description

The Fidelity Independence Fund (FDFFX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to grow investor capital. The firm primarily focuses on large-cap U.S. stocks, however, it can own foreign equities as well. FDFFX’s management uses various fundamental metrics that focus on earnings to find stocks that have faster-than-average earnings growth. This growth can be from more traditional secular drivers as well as special events like company turnarounds, cyclical recoveries or industry transformations. There is no sector requirement for the fund.

Given its focus on growth, FDFFX is best suited as a subcore position in a broad equity portfolio. The fund is internally managed by Fidelity.
