Fidelity in the Middle East

Fidelity International* has been managing assets on behalf of investors in the Middle East since 1976, and we've had a representative office in the United Arab Emirates since April 2000.

We are licenced as a representative office by the UAE Central Bank and our primary function is to provide sales and marketing support to the financial institutions that offers our funds to their end investors.

Fidelity’s offshore mutual fund range is available through selected local and global banks, private banks and as part of the savings plans offered by life assurance companies and investment platforms across the region.

We do not offer individual savings accounts or brokerage services for direct investors. We are not licenced or authorised to provide financial advice or investment recommendations.

Please also note that we are a separate company to Fidelity Management and Research in the United States. Whilst we have a shared heritage with Fidelity in the US, we offer a totally different range of products and services to investors.

The Luxembourg-domiciled Fidelity Funds range is available through the following institutions in the Middle East. Please contact one of our distribution partners, who will assign a relationship manager to you to discuss your investment needs.
