Fund Summary

 

Fund:

Fidelity® Low Duration Bond ETF

 

Investment Objective

Fidelity® Low Duration Bond ETF seeks to obtain a high level of current income consistent with preservation of capital.

Fee Table

The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table or example below.

 

 

Shareholder fees   
(fees paid directly from your investment)      None  
Annual Operating Expenses   
(expenses that you pay each year as a % of the value of your investment)

 

Management fee      0.20%  
Distribution and/or Service (12b-1) fees      None  
Other expenses      0.00% A 
  

 

 

 
Total annual operating expenses      0.20%  

A Based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year.

 

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let’s say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table.

This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here’s how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

 

 

1 year    $ 20  
3 years    $  64  


Portfolio Turnover

The fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example, affect the fund’s performance.

Principal Investment Strategies

• Normally investing at least 80% of assets in investment-grade debt securities (those of medium and high quality) of all types and repurchase agreements for those securities.

• Normally maintaining a duration of 1 year or less.

• Managing the fund to have similar overall interest rate risk to the Bloomberg US Treasury Bill: 6-9 Months Index.

• Normally maintaining a dollar-weighted average maturity of two years or less.

• Allocating assets across different market sectors and maturities.

• Investing more than 25% of total assets in the financial services industries.

• Investing in domestic and foreign issuers.

• Analyzing the credit quality of the issuer, security-specific features, current and potential future valuation, and trading opportunities to select investments.

• Engaging in transactions that have a leveraging effect on the fund, including investments in derivatives — such as swaps (interest rate, total return, and credit default), options, and futures contracts — and forward-settling securities, to adjust the fund’s risk exposure.

Principal Investment Risks

• Interest Rate Changes. Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.

• Foreign Exposure. Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market.

• Financial Services Concentration. Changes in government regulation and interest rates and economic downturns can have a significant negative effect on issuers in the financial services sector, including the price of their securities or their ability to meet their payment obligations.

• Prepayment. The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security’s maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.

• Issuer-Specific Changes. The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.

 


A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.

• Leverage Risk. Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.

• Fluctuation of Net Asset Value and Share Price. The net asset value per share (NAV) of the fund will generally fluctuate with changes in the market value of the fund’s holdings. The fund’s shares can be bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices. Disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of extreme market volatility or potential lack of an active trading market for the fund’s shares may result in the fund’s shares trading significantly above (at a premium) or below (at a discount) to NAV.

Given the nature of the relevant markets for certain of the fund’s securities, shares may trade at a larger premium or discount to the NAV than shares of other ETFs.

In addition, in stressed market conditions or periods of market disruption or volatility, the market for shares may become less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the fund’s underlying portfolio holdings.

• Trading Issues. There can be no assurance that an active trading market will be maintained. Market makers

and Authorized Participants are not obligated to make a market in the fund’s shares or to submit purchase and redemption orders for creation units. In addition, trading may be halted, for example, due to market conditions.

• Cash Transactions Risk. Unlike certain ETFs, the fund may effect some or all creations and redemptions using cash, rather than in-kind securities. As a result, an investment in the fund may be less tax-efficient than an investment in an ETF that distributes portfolio securities entirely in-kind.

An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.

Unlike individual debt securities, which typically pay principal at maturity, the value of an investment in the fund will fluctuate.

Performance

Performance history will be available for the fund after the fund has been in operation for one calendar year.

Investment Adviser

Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) is the fund’s manager. Other investment advisers serve as sub-advisers for the fund.

 


Portfolio Manager(s)

David DeBiase (Co-Portfolio Manager) has managed the fund since 2024.

Robert Galusza (Co-Portfolio Manager) has managed the fund since 2024.

Julian Potenza (Co-Portfolio Manager) has managed the fund since 2024.

Purchase and Sale of Shares

Shares of the fund are listed and traded on an exchange, and individual fund shares may only be bought and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at market price. These transactions, which do not involve the fund, are made at market prices that may vary throughout the day, rather than at NAV. Shares of the fund may trade at a price greater than the fund’s NAV (premium) or less than the fund’s NAV (discount). An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling fund shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”). Recent information, including information regarding the fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spread, is available at www.fidelity.com.

Tax Information

Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary

income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).

Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries

The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary’s web site for more information.
