With over $750 billion in assets under management in a blend of Fidelity and third-party investment vehicles, the SA team of investment professionals constructs and manages asset allocation portfolios for over 3,000,000 customer accounts.

Fundamental Research

SAI’s Fundamental Research team consists of 29 Analysts and Associates organized by asset class teams of US Equity, International Equity, Fixed Income, and Alternatives.
