The Fidelity Wealth Builder Fund is an open-end fund of funds portfolio that offers three types of asset allocation options within debt and equity holdings. This is a zero entry load fund with free switching between plans.
The fund offers three plans with varying levels of exposure to debt and equity that investors can choose from depending on their risk appetite. Under plan A, the fund will invest up to 85% of the assets in debt and around 15% in equities. Under plan B, the fund will invest around 30% of the assets in equities and the rest in debt. Under plan C, the fund will split the assets between equities and debt.
The fund allows investors to benefit from a disciplined asset allocation approach while being able to switch without added fees when the outlook for debt and equity changes or when the markets actually turn.
