Sales charges

About sales charges

You may pay a commission to invest in the Fidelity Funds. The commission is also called a sales charge. The commission compensates your financial advisor for the advice and service he or she provides to you. You can choose to purchase your funds under a purchase option for which the sales charges may be payable at the time of purchase.  This is called an initial sales charge, and the amount you pay is negotiable with your advisor.  Alternatively, you can choose to wait until you redeem your funds and pay a percentage of their original cost to us at that time.  This is called a deferred sales charge.  You don’t pay a sales charge if you invest in our fee-based series.  A summary of the types of sales charges are as follows:

 

NL (Fee-based)

No Load sales charge option. Funds are sold without a fee being charged at the time of sale. 
Related series:  F, F5, F8

 

ISC

Initial Sales Charge option. You may pay a sales charge when you buy the series of the Fund.
Related series: B, D, S5, S8

 

DSC*

Deferred Sales Charge option.  If funds are redeemed within six years of purchase, a fixed sales charge based on the original cost of the funds and how long they were held will apply.
Related series: A, C, T5, T8

 

LL*

Low Load deferred sales charge option. DSC option. If funds are redeemed within two years of purchase, a fixed sales charge based on the original cost of the funds and how long they were held will apply.
