Using an open architecture approach, they include mutual funds from Fidelity along with ETFs and SMAs from Fidelity and other asset managers. As part of their tax-aware strategy, these model portfolios aim to reduce the impact of taxes on returns by including municipal bonds, and can take advantage of SMAs’ ability to maximize tax efficiency through techniques like tax-loss harvesting.

Fidelity Model Portfolios are made available to financial intermediaries on a non-discretionary basis by Fidelity Institutional Wealth Adviser LLC ("FIWA"), a registered investment adviser, or by Fidelity Distributors Company LLC ("FDC"), a registered broker-dealer, (collectively "Fidelity"). Fidelity is not acting as a fiduciary or in any advisory capacity in providing this information. The information is designed to be utilized by you solely as a resource, along with other potential sources, in providing advisory services to your clients. You are solely responsible for determining whether the Models, the investment products included in the Models, and the share class of those products, are appropriate and suitable for you to base a recommendation or provide advice to any end investor about the potential use of the Models.
With the exception of the Fidelity Target Allocation and Target Allocation Index-Focused Models, which consists solely of Fidelity mutual funds, the Models may consist of Fidelity mutual funds, Fidelity ETFs, and third-party ETFs, which include iShares ETFs sponsored by BlackRock. These investment products that comprise the models are available only in the share class designated by FIWA when made available through the Models. FIWA does not seek to offer investment products or share classes through the Models that are necessarily the least expensive. In some cases, the investment products in the Models may have a lower-cost share class available on a stand-alone basis for purchase outside of the Models, or that may be available to other types of investors. Use of the Models will result in the payment of fees to the Fidelity funds and Fidelity ETFs in the Models as provided for in the prospectus to each such investment product. The fees received from investment in the funds and ETFs will be shared by various affiliates, including FIWA, involved in distributing and advising the Models, the Fidelity funds, and the Fidelity ETFs in the Models.

Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation, credit, and default risks for both issuers and counterparties.
The model portfolios do not attempt to consider the effect of income taxes on performance or returns and does not reflect any opinion on the tax-appropriateness of the portfolio for any investor. Depending on your tax situation, municipal bond funds may be more appropriate for you. Model portfolios do not consider the effect of taxes, fees, and/or expenses associated with investing. Please consult with your investment or tax advisor, if applicable, prior to taking action.
Generally, among asset classes stocks are more volatile than bonds or short-term instruments and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Although the bond market is also volatile, lower-quality debt securities including leveraged loans generally offer higher yields compared to investment-grade securities, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes. The municipal market is volatile and can be significantly affected by adverse tax, legislative, or political changes and the financial condition of the issuers of municipal securities.
Please see the mutual fund and ETF prospectuses, applicable ADV documents, and/or related offering documents for more details on compensation, expenses and fees, conflicts of interest, investment strategies and risks.
Because of its narrow focus, sector investing tends to be more volatile than investments that diversify across many sectors and companies. Each sector investment is also subject to the additional risks associated with its particular industry.
There is no guarantee that a factor-based investing strategy will enhance performance or reduce risk. Before investing, make sure you understand how a factor investment strategy may differ from a more traditional index-based or actively managed approach. Depending on market conditions, factor-based investments may underperform compared to investments that seek to track a market-capitalization-weighted index or investments that employ full active management.
