Fidelity Investments is a USA-based financial services corporation with a strong global presence. It is one of the largest mutual fund and financial services groups in the USA and in the world. Founded in 1946, it primarily serves North American investors. It runs a capital arm known as Fidelity Ventures. Fidelity International Limited (FIL), was an international affiliate associated with Fidelity Investments but in September 2011, it was rebranded as Fidelity Worldwide Investment.
The company is still a privately held company (owned mostly by the Johnson family who founded it) so it is not found on the public stock market. The company employs almost 40,000 people and brings in revenues around $10 billion each year. Currently, Fidelity’s largest marketing efforts are aimed towards the aging baby-boomer generation.
