What is a Fidelity Global Technology Fund ISA?

A Fidelity Global Technology Fund ISA is a Stocks and Shares ISA that invests in the Fidelity Global Technology Fund.

What is a Stocks and Shares ISA?

A Stocks and Shares ISA is a tax-efficient investment account.

You can buy shares and funds within a Stocks and Shares ISA, and your investments are completely sheltered from the following taxes:

  1. Income Tax on the dividends from your investments
  2. Capital Gains Tax on the growth of your investments

What is the Fidelity Global Technology Fund?

The Fidelity Global Technology Fund is a managed fund, operated by Fidelity’s own investment managers.

Retail investors can buy into the fund through an investment platform, such as Hargreaves Lansdown or Fidelity’s own platform.

Investment platforms offer a range of investments accounts including Stocks and Shares ISAs that you can hold managed funds in, such as the Fidelity Technology Fund.

What does the Fidelity Global Technology Fund invest in?

The fund itself pools together money from its investors and invests it in multiple different companies within its main sector: Technology & Telecoms.

This primarily includes technology hardware & equipment and software & computer services; however, other sectors like industrial support services and retail also fall under the fund’s investment remit.

The fund managers specialise in identifying promising companies within this sector that are undervalued or have strong growth potential.

The fund invests in a range of different sized businesses from large, established companies like Microsoft, Google (Alphabet Inc) and Apple, to smaller, less well-known companies with potential to grow.

In terms of geography, the fund has a global range and doesn’t restrict itself to any countries in particular.

However, the US is its favoured region due to specialities within the fund managers and the prominence of technology investment opportunities in the States, and the fund often has around 70% of its equity invested in American companies at any given time.

How to Open a Fidelity Global Technology Fund ISA

  1. First, open a Stocks and Shares ISA with a provider that offers the Fidelity fund on their platform (you can compare ISA providers based on their charges, investment options, customer service ratings etc.)
  2. You can open an ISA online via your chosen provider’s website in about 15 minutes
  3. You’ll need your National Insurance number and some basic personal information
  4. And you’ll need your debit card to add money to your ISA once it’s open
  5. You can then invest in the Fidelity Global Technology Fund with the money you’ve added
  6. You’ll benefit from investment growth and dividends that you can withdraw or reinvest
  7. But remember, investment returns are not guaranteed and the fund could fall as well as rise in value

How to transfer an existing ISA into a Fidelity Global Technology Fund ISA

You are able to transfer your existing Stocks and Shares ISA or Cash ISA to an ISA platform and invest in the Fidelity Global Technology Fund.

You’ll need to:

  1. Complete a Stocks and Shares ISA transfer form with your new ISA provider
  2. When your transfer completes, purchase units in the fund using your existing ISA funds (you might need to sell your current holdings first)
  3. Remember to check with your existing provider if you’ll be charged for transferring out and weigh up the costs
