TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - At the 2012 Morningstar Canadian
Investment Awards last night, Fidelity Investments Canada ULC was
presented with the Advisors' Choice Fund Company of the Year award.
This is the second year in a row that Fidelity has been recognized by
Canadian financial advisors and speaks to Fidelity's commitment of
providing relevant, high-quality investment solutions to advisors and
their clients in a cost effective manner.
"We are honoured to be recognized for the second year in a row as the
Morningstar Advisors' Choice Fund Company of the Year. For the past 25
years, Fidelity Canada has focused on serving the needs of financial
advisors through good markets and bad. We are proud to play a key role
in supporting their businesses, and we thank them for their continued
support," said Rob Strickland, President, Fidelity Investments Canada
In voting for their favorite investment fund company, financial advisors
were asked to consider a company's impact on their businesses across a
number of areas: quality and range of products, performance, fees,
service, education, community investment and quality of management.
The Advisors' Choice Fund Company of the Year Award builds on the
long-term positive momentum that Fidelity is experiencing. Along with
celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Fidelity Canada expanded its sales force to
better serve its clients, introduced new products, celebrated ten
outstanding years of partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of
Canada and for the seventh year in a row, topped an annual survey of
Canadian financial advisors.
"In 25 years, Fidelity has grown to become the largest independent
mutual fund company through forging solid, long-lasting partnerships
with financial advisors and clients from coast to coast. And at the
core of our success remains the dedication of our employees to do
what's right for our clients - and a continued focus on the long-term,"
