Mumbai, Apr 2 (ANI/Business Wire India): Fidelity today announced the launch of Fidelity Online - www.fidelity.co.in - a financial gateway that will help investors learn and plan as well as transact and track their investments in Fidelity Funds.
What this means is that investors will be able to invest, redeem and switch their lumpsum and SIP investments online following a short registration process. The STP and SWP facilities are also available online.
Ashu Suyash, Country Head and Managing Director, Fidelity Fund Management, said, "With Fidelity Online, we have taken the next step in developing alternate channels to enhance customer choice and convenience whether he is looking for information or to transact. We are now able to give our investors greater ease in managing their Fidelity portfolios from anywhere, anytime.

Some of the investor-friendly features of Fidelity Online include:
Investors will be able to view and transact under one single ID by linking all folios
Payment gateway with 14 banks for lumpsum investments and 10 banks for SIP investments for a direct debit facility
Transactions on joint holdings possible (provided both holders have registered)
Completely secure site with a two-level authentication
In addition, routine account management, such as obtaining account statements, checking valuations, comparing benchmarks and updating user profile has also become easier.
Fidelity Online also has interesting financial tools for investors like my Plan which is an interactive, easy-to-use calculator to help investors with their financial planning, a SIP calculator and a Learning Centre that offers insights on investing.
Fidelity also recently launched Fidelity AnywhereT, a mobile-friendly lite web site.
Anyone with a handheld device or a mobile phone which has an internet browser and GPRS connectivity can access Fidelity AnywhereT (www.fidelityanywhere.co.in).
As a lite web site, it is custom created for mobile and handheld devices which makes it quicker to access and easy to navigate. It provides the latest NAVs for Fidelity's funds in India and allows its customers there to request application forms and investor guides which are then delivered via email. Customers who do not have GPRS enabled mobile phones can use the SMS facility to get the latest NAVs.
