Fidelity launches international factor-based ETFs


Fidelity Investments is expanding its factor-based ETF offerings for individual investors and financial advisors with the introduction of two international factor-based ETFs – Fidelity International High Dividend ETF (FIDI) and Fidelity International Value Factor ETF (FIVA).

The new ETFs, which began trading on the New York Stock Exchange today, are competitively priced with total expense ratios of just 0.39 per cent. They are available to individual investors and financial advisors commission-free3 through Fidelity’s online brokerage platforms.
“Many investors have expressed strong interest in international dividend and value factor strategies,” says Greg Friedman, head of ETF management and strategy at Fidelity. “These new ETFs, which will help us address that demand, benefit from our powerful research capabilities and decades of investing experience and expertise and provides great value to investors.”
With the addition of these two ETFs, investors now have access to 93 commission-free ETFs, including the full suite of eight domestic and international factor ETFs, three Fidelity actively-managed bond ETFs, 11 Fidelity passive equity sector ETFs, Fidelity ONEQ, and 70 passive iShares ETFs. Fidelity’s commission-free ETF lineup continues to see tremendous asset growth, reaching USD106 billion in AUA.
“Overall cost is a key consideration when evaluating ETFs. Commissions, bid-ask spreads, and expense ratios are three important factors in evaluating overall ETF cost,” says Friedman. “Our commission-free ETFs provide customers with tighter spreads and lower expense ratios, compared to the average commission-free ETFs.”
