Note to Shareholders:

Early in 2020, the outbreak and spread of a new coronavirus emerged as a public health emergency that had a major influence on financial markets, primarily based on its impact on the global economy and the outlook for corporate earnings. The virus causes a respiratory disease known as COVID-19. On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, citing sustained risk of further global spread.

In the weeks following, as the crisis worsened, we witnessed an escalating human tragedy with wide-scale social and economic consequences from coronavirus-containment measures. The outbreak of COVID-19 prompted a number of measures to limit the spread, including travel and border restrictions, quarantines, and restrictions on large gatherings. In turn, these resulted in lower consumer activity, diminished demand for a wide range of products and services, disruption in manufacturing and supply chains, and – given the wide variability in outcomes regarding the outbreak – significant market uncertainty and volatility. Amid the turmoil, global governments and central banks took unprecedented action to help support consumers, businesses, and the broader economies, and to limit disruption to financial systems.

The situation continues to unfold, and the extent and duration of its impact on financial markets and the economy remain highly uncertain. Extreme events such as the coronavirus crisis are “exogenous shocks” that can have significant adverse effects on mutual funds and their investments. Although multiple asset classes may be affected by market disruption, the duration and impact may not be the same for all types of assets.

Fidelity is committed to helping you stay informed amid news about COVID-19 and during increased market volatility, and we’re taking extra steps to be responsive to customer needs. We encourage you to visit our websites, where we offer ongoing updates, commentary, and analysis on the markets and our funds.

Performance: The Bottom Line

Average annual total return reflects the change in the value of an investment, assuming reinvestment of distributions from dividend income and capital gains (the profits earned upon the sale of securities that have grown in value, if any) and assuming a constant rate of performance each year. The hypothetical investment and the average annual total returns do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on fund distributions or the redemption of fund shares. During periods of reimbursement by Fidelity, a fund’s total return will be greater than it would be had the reimbursement not occurred. How a fund did yesterday is no guarantee of how it will do tomorrow.

Average Annual Total Returns

For the periods ended July 31, 2021 Past 1 year Past 5 years Past 10 years

Management's Discussion of Fund Performance

Market Recap:  The S&P 500® index gained 36.45% for the 12 months ending July 31, 2021, as U.S. equities continued a historic rebound following a steep but brief decline due to the early-2020 outbreak and spread of COVID-19. A confluence of powerful forces propelled risk assets, returning the stock market to pre-pandemic highs by late August 2020. The rally slowed in September, when stocks began a two-month retreat amid Congress’s inability to reach a deal on additional fiscal stimulus, as well as uncertainty about the election. But as the calendar turned, investors grew hopeful. The rollout of three COVID-19 vaccines was underway, the U.S. Federal Reserve pledged to hold interest rates near zero until the economy recovered, and the federal government planned to deploy trillions of dollars to boost consumers and the economy. This backdrop fueled a sharp rotation, with small-cap value usurping leadership from large growth. As part of the “reopening” theme, investors moved out of tech-driven mega-caps that had thrived due to the work-from-home trend in favor of cheap smaller companies that stood to benefit from a broad cyclical recovery. A flattish May reflected concerns about inflation and jobs, but the uptrend resumed through July, driven by corporate earnings. Notably, this leg saw momentum shift back to large growth, as easing rates and a hawkish Fed stymied the reflation trade. By sector, financials (+55%) led, driven by banks (+63%), whereas utilities (+12%) and consumer staples (+18%) notably lagged.

Comments from Co-Managers Brian Chang and Mark Notkin:  For the fiscal year ending July 31, 2021, the fund's share classes (excluding sales charges, if applicable) gained about 57% to 59%, outperforming the 42.78% advance of the Fidelity U.S. Leveraged Stock Linked Index, as well as the Russell MidCap® Index. Versus the benchmark, security selection was the primary contributor, especially in the consumer discretionary sector, where the consumer services industry was a standout. Strong picks in the consumer staples sector, primarily driven by the food, beverage & tobacco industry, also bolstered the fund's relative result. Also bolstering the fund's relative result was security selection in information technology. The fund's top individual relative contributor was an outsized stake in Caesars Entertainment, which gained 181% the past year. The company was our largest holding. Also adding value was our overweighting in Penn National Gaming, which gained about 101%. Penn National Gaming was among our biggest holdings. Another top relative contributor was an out-of-benchmark stake in Tesla (+142%). In contrast, the biggest detractor from performance versus the benchmark was an underweighting in the financials sector, primarily within the diversified financials industry. Stock selection in communication services and an underweighting in real estate also hampered the fund's relative result. Our non-benchmark stake in Alibaba Group Holding was the fund's largest individual relative detractor, due to its roughly -22% result. Another notable relative detractor was an out-of-benchmark stake in Global Payments (+9%). Also hampering performance was our outsized stake in Altice USA, which gained 14%. Notable changes in positioning include reduced exposure to the industrials and information technology sectors, and a higher allocation to consumer discretionary.

Notes to Financial Statements

For the period ended July 31, 2021
(Amounts in thousands except percentages)

1. Organization.

Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund (the Fund) is a fund of Fidelity Advisor Series I (the Trust) and is authorized to issue an unlimited number of shares. The Trust is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the 1940 Act), as an open-end management investment company organized as a Massachusetts business trust. The Fund offers Class A, Class M, Class C, Class I and Class Z shares, each of which has equal rights as to assets and voting privileges. Each class has exclusive voting rights with respect to matters that affect that class. Effective June 21, 2021, Class C shares will automatically convert to Class A shares after a holding period of eight years from the initial date of purchase, with certain exceptions. Prior to June 21, 2021, Class C shares automatically converted to Class A shares after a holding period of ten years from the initial date of purchase, with certain exceptions.

2. Investments in Fidelity Central Funds.

Funds may invest in Fidelity Central Funds, which are open-end investment companies generally available only to other investment companies and accounts managed by the investment adviser and its affiliates. The Schedule of Investments lists any Fidelity Central Funds held as an investment as of period end, but does not include the underlying holdings of each Fidelity Central Fund. An investing fund indirectly bears its proportionate share of the expenses of the underlying Fidelity Central Funds.

Based on its investment objective, each Fidelity Central Fund may invest or participate in various investment vehicles or strategies that are similar to those of the investing fund. These strategies are consistent with the investment objectives of the investing fund and may involve certain economic risks which may cause a decline in value of each of the Fidelity Central Funds and thus a decline in the value of the investing fund.

 (a) Expenses expressed as a percentage of average net assets and are as of each underlying Central Fund's most recent annual or semi-annual shareholder report.

A complete unaudited list of holdings for each Fidelity Central Fund is available upon request or at the Securities and Exchange Commission website at www.sec.gov. In addition, the financial statements of the Fidelity Central Funds which contain the significant accounting policies (including investment valuation policies) of those funds, and are not covered by the Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm, are available on the Securities and Exchange Commission website or upon request.

3. Significant Accounting Policies.

The Fund is an investment company and applies the accounting and reporting guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification Topic 946 Financial Services - Investment Companies. The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), which require management to make certain estimates and assumptions at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Subsequent events, if any, through the date that the financial statements were issued have been evaluated in the preparation of the financial statements. The Fund's Schedule of Investments lists any underlying mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) but does not include the underlying holdings of these funds. The following summarizes the significant accounting policies of the Fund:

Investment Valuation. Investments are valued as of 4:00 p.m. Eastern time on the last calendar day of the period. The Board of Trustees (the Board) has delegated the day to day responsibility for the valuation of the Fund's investments to the Fair Value Committee (the Committee) established by the Fund's investment adviser. In accordance with valuation policies and procedures approved by the Board, the Fund attempts to obtain prices from one or more third party pricing vendors or brokers to value its investments. When current market prices, quotations or currency exchange rates are not readily available or reliable, investments will be fair valued in good faith by the Committee, in accordance with procedures adopted by the Board. Factors used in determining fair value vary by investment type and may include market or investment specific events, changes in interest rates and credit quality. The frequency with which these procedures are used cannot be predicted and they may be utilized to a significant extent. The Committee oversees the Fund's valuation policies and procedures and reports to the Board on the Committee's activities and fair value determinations. The Board monitors the appropriateness of the procedures used in valuing the Fund's investments and ratifies the fair value determinations of the Committee.

The Fund categorizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to value its investments into a disclosure hierarchy consisting of three levels as shown below:

  • Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical investments
  • Level 2 – other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar investments, interest rates, prepayment speeds, etc.)
  • Level 3 – unobservable inputs (including the Fund's own assumptions based on the best information available)

Valuation techniques used to value the Fund's investments by major category are as follows:

Equity securities, including restricted securities, for which market quotations are readily available, are valued at the last reported sale price or official closing price as reported by a third party pricing vendor on the primary market or exchange on which they are traded and are categorized as Level 1 in the hierarchy. In the event there were no sales during the day or closing prices are not available, securities are valued at the last quoted bid price or may be valued using the last available price and are generally categorized as Level 2 in the hierarchy. For foreign equity securities, when market or security specific events arise, comparisons to the valuation of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), futures contracts, Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) and certain indexes as well as quoted prices for similar securities may be used and would be categorized as Level 2 in the hierarchy. For equity securities, including restricted securities, where observable inputs are limited, assumptions about market activity and risk are used and these securities may be categorized as Level 3 in the hierarchy.

Debt securities, including restricted securities, are valued based on evaluated prices received from third party pricing vendors or from brokers who make markets in such securities. Bank loan obligations are valued by pricing vendors who utilize matrix pricing which considers yield or price of bonds of comparable quality, coupon, maturity and type or by broker-supplied prices When independent prices are unavailable or unreliable, debt securities may be valued utilizing pricing methodologies which consider similar factors that would be used by third party pricing vendors. Debt securities are generally categorized as Level 2 in the hierarchy but may be Level 3 depending on the circumstances.

Investments in open-end mutual funds, including the Fidelity Central Funds, are valued at their closing net asset value (NAV) each business day and are categorized as Level 1 in the hierarchy.

Changes in valuation techniques may result in transfers in or out of an assigned level within the disclosure hierarchy. The aggregate value of investments by input level as of July 31, 2021 is included at the end of the Fund's Schedule of Investments.

Foreign Currency. Certain Funds may use foreign currency contracts to facilitate transactions in foreign-denominated securities. Gains and losses from these transactions may arise from changes in the value of the foreign currency or if the counterparties do not perform under the contracts' terms.

Foreign-denominated assets, including investment securities, and liabilities are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rates at period end. Purchases and sales of investment securities, income and dividends received, and expenses denominated in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate in effect on the transaction date.

The effects of exchange rate fluctuations on investments are included with the net realized and unrealized gain (loss) on investment securities. Other foreign currency transactions resulting in realized and unrealized gain (loss) are disclosed separately.

Investment Transactions and Income. For financial reporting purposes, the Fund's investment holdings and NAV include trades executed through the end of the last business day of the period. The NAV per share for processing shareholder transactions is calculated as of the close of business of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern time and includes trades executed through the end of the prior business day. Gains and losses on securities sold are determined on the basis of identified cost and include proceeds received from litigation. Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date, except for certain dividends from foreign securities where the ex-dividend date may have passed, which are recorded as soon as the Fund is informed of the ex-dividend date. Non-cash dividends included in dividend income, if any, are recorded at the fair market value of the securities received. Income and capital gain distributions from Fidelity Central Funds, if any, are recorded on the ex-dividend date. Certain distributions received by the Fund represent a return of capital or capital gain. The Fund determines the components of these distributions subsequent to the ex-dividend date, based upon receipt of tax filings or other correspondence relating to the underlying investment. These distributions are recorded as a reduction of cost of investments and/or as a realized gain. Investment income is recorded net of foreign taxes withheld where recovery of such taxes is uncertain.

Class Allocations and Expenses. Investment income, realized and unrealized capital gains and losses, common expenses of a fund, and certain fund-level expense reductions, if any, are allocated daily on a pro-rata basis to each class based on the relative net assets of each class to the total net assets of a fund. Each class differs with respect to transfer agent and distribution and service plan fees incurred, as applicable. Certain expense reductions may also differ by class, if applicable. For the reporting period, the allocated portion of income and expenses to each class as a percent of its average net assets may vary due to the timing of recording these transactions in relation to fluctuating net assets of the classes. Expenses directly attributable to a fund are charged to that fund. Expenses attributable to more than one fund are allocated among the respective funds on the basis of relative net assets or other appropriate methods. Expenses included in the accompanying financial statements reflect the expenses of that fund and do not include any expenses associated with any underlying mutual funds or exchange-traded funds. Although not included in a fund's expenses, a fund indirectly bears its proportionate share of these expenses through the net asset value of each underlying mutual fund or exchange-traded fund. Expense estimates are accrued in the period to which they relate and adjustments are made when actual amounts are known.

Income Tax Information and Distributions to Shareholders. Each year, the Fund intends to qualify as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code, including distributing substantially all of its taxable income and realized gains. As a result, no provision for U.S. Federal income taxes is required. As of July 31, 2021, the Fund did not have any unrecognized tax benefits in the financial statements; nor is the Fund aware of any tax positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly change in the next twelve months. The Fund files a U.S. federal tax return, in addition to state and local tax returns as required. The Fund's federal income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for a period of three fiscal years after they are filed. State and local tax returns may be subject to examination for an additional fiscal year depending on the jurisdiction. Foreign taxes are provided for based on the Fund's understanding of the tax rules and rates that exist in the foreign markets in which it invests.

Distributions are declared and recorded on the ex-dividend date. Income and capital gain distributions are declared separately for each class. Income and capital gain distributions are determined in accordance with income tax regulations, which may differ from GAAP. In addition, the Fund claimed a portion of the payment made to redeeming shareholders as a distribution for income tax purposes.

Capital accounts within the financial statements are adjusted for permanent book-tax differences. These adjustments have no impact on net assets or the results of operations. Capital accounts are not adjusted for temporary book-tax differences which will reverse in a subsequent period.

Book-tax differences are primarily due to foreign currency transactions, market discount, partnerships, net operating losses and losses deferred due to excise tax regulations.

As of period end, the cost and unrealized appreciation (depreciation) in securities, and derivatives if applicable, for federal income tax purposes were as follows:

Gross unrealized appreciation $678,550 
Gross unrealized depreciation (14,177) 
Net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) $664,373 
Tax Cost $755,989 

The tax-based components of distributable earnings as of period end were as follows:

Undistributed long-term capital gain $82,750

Long-term Capital Gains $36,579 $65,701 
Total $36,579 $ 65,701 

Restricted Securities (including Private Placements). Funds may invest in securities that are subject to legal or contractual restrictions on resale. These securities generally may be resold in transactions exempt from registration or to the public if the securities are registered. Disposal of these securities may involve time-consuming negotiations and expense, and prompt sale at an acceptable price may be difficult. Information regarding restricted securities held at period end is included at the end of the Schedule of Investments, if applicable.

Loans and Other Direct Debt Instruments. Direct debt instruments are interests in amounts owed to lenders by corporate or other borrowers. These instruments may be in the form of loans, trade claims or other receivables and may include standby financing commitments such as revolving credit facilities that obligate a fund to supply additional cash to the borrower on demand. Loans may be acquired through assignment, participation, or may be made directly to a borrower. Such instruments are presented in the Bank Loan Obligations section in the Schedule of Investments. Certain funds may also invest in unfunded loan commitments, which are contractual obligations for future funding. Information regarding unfunded commitments is included at the end of the Schedule of Investments, if applicable.

5. Fees and Other Transactions with Affiliates.

Management Fee. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (the investment adviser) and its affiliates provide the Fund with investment management related services for which the Fund pays a monthly management fee. The management fee is the sum of an individual fund fee rate that is based on an annual rate of .35% of the Fund's average net assets and an annualized group fee rate that averaged .23% during the period. The group fee rate is based upon the monthly average net assets of a group of registered investment companies with which the investment adviser has management contracts. The group fee rate decreases as assets under management increase and increases as assets under management decrease. For the reporting period, the total annual management fee rate was .58% of the Fund's average net assets.

Distribution and Service Plan Fees. In accordance with Rule 12b-1 of the 1940 Act, the Fund has adopted separate Distribution and Service Plans for each class of shares. Certain classes pay Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), an affiliate of the investment adviser, separate Distribution and Service Fees, each of which is based on an annual percentage of each class' average net assets. In addition, FDC may pay financial intermediaries for selling shares of the Fund and providing shareholder support services. For the period, the Distribution and Service Fee rates, total fees and amounts retained by FDC were as follows:

 Distribution Fee Service Fee Total Fees Retained by FDC

   $3,408 $51 

Sales Load. FDC may receive a front-end sales charge of up to 5.75% for selling Class A shares and 3.50% for selling Class M shares, some of which is paid to financial intermediaries for selling shares of the Fund. Depending on the holding period, FDC may receive contingent deferred sales charges levied on Class A, Class M and Class C redemptions. The deferred sales charges are 1.00% for Class C shares, 1.00% for certain purchases of Class A shares and .25% for certain purchases of Class M shares.

For the period, sales charge amounts retained by FDC were as follows:

 Retained by FDC 
Class A $31 
Class M 
Class C(a) 
 $38 

 (a) When Class C shares are initially sold, FDC pays commissions from its own resources to financial intermediaries through which the sales are made.

Transfer Agent Fees. Fidelity Investments Institutional Operations Company LLC (FIIOC), an affiliate of the investment adviser, is the transfer, dividend disbursing and shareholder servicing agent for each class of the Fund. FIIOC receives account fees and asset-based fees that vary according to the account size and type of account of the shareholders of the respective classes of the Fund, except for Class Z. FIIOC receives an asset-based fee of Class Z's average net assets. FIIOC pays for typesetting, printing and mailing of shareholder reports, except proxy statements.

For the period, transfer agent fees for each class were as follows:

 Amount % of Class-Level Average Net Assets 
Class A $1,023 .18

Class C 127 .20 
Class I 550 .17 
Class Z 15 .04 
 $2,179

 % of Average Net Assets 
Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund .03 

Brokerage Commissions. A portion of portfolio transactions were placed with brokerage firms which are affiliates of the investment adviser. Brokerage commissions are included in net realized gain (loss) and change in net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) in the Statement of Operations. The commissions paid to these affiliated firms were as follows:

 Amount 
Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund $3 

Interfund Trades. Funds may purchase from or sell securities to other Fidelity Funds under procedures adopted by the Board. The procedures have been designed to ensure these interfund trades are executed in accordance with Rule 17a-7 of the 1940 Act. Any interfund trades are included within the respective purchases and sales amounts shown in the Purchases and Sales of Investments note and are noted in the table below.

 Purchases ($) Sales ($) 
Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund 18,327 54,478 

6. Committed Line of Credit.

Certain Funds participate with other funds managed by the investment adviser or an affiliate in a $4.25 billion credit facility (the "line of credit") to be utilized for temporary or emergency purposes to fund shareholder redemptions or for other short-term liquidity purposes. The participating funds have agreed to pay commitment fees on their pro-rata portion of the line of credit, which are reflected in Miscellaneous expenses on the Statement of Operations, and are listed below. During the period, there were no borrowings on this line of credit.

 Amount 
Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund $2 

7. Security Lending.

Funds lend portfolio securities from time to time in order to earn additional income. Lending agents are used, including National Financial Services (NFS), an affiliate of the investment adviser. Pursuant to a securities lending agreement, NFS will receive a fee, which is capped at 9.9% of a fund's daily lending revenue, for its services as lending agent. A fund may lend securities to certain qualified borrowers, including NFS. On the settlement date of the loan, a fund receives collateral (in the form of U.S. Treasury obligations, letters of credit and/or cash) against the loaned securities and maintains collateral in an amount not less than 100% of the market value of the loaned securities during the period of the loan. The market value of the loaned securities is determined at the close of business of a fund and any additional required collateral is delivered to a fund on the next business day. A fund or borrower may terminate the loan at any time, and if the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, a fund may apply collateral received from the borrower against the obligation. A fund may experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned. Any cash collateral received is invested in the Fidelity Securities Lending Cash Central Fund. Any loaned securities are identified as such in the Schedule of Investments, and the value of loaned securities and cash collateral at period end, as applicable, are presented in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities. Security lending income represents the income earned on investing cash collateral, less rebates paid to borrowers and any lending agent fees associated with the loan, plus any premium payments received for lending certain types of securities. Security lending income is presented in the Statement of Operations as a component of income from Fidelity Central Funds. Affiliated security lending activity, if any, was as follows:

 Total Security Lending Fees Paid to NFS Security Lending Income From Securities Loaned to NFS Value of Securities Loaned to NFS at Period End 
Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund $2 $– $– 

8. Expense Reductions.

Commissions paid to certain brokers with whom the investment adviser, or its affiliates, places trades on behalf of the Fund include an amount in addition to trade execution, which may be rebated back to the Fund to offset expenses. This amount totaled $9 for the period.

In addition, during the period the investment adviser or an affiliate reimbursed and/or waived a portion of fund-level operating expenses in the amount of $10.

11. Other.

Fund's organizational documents provide former and current trustees and officers with a limited indemnification against liabilities arising in connection with the performance of their duties to the fund. In the normal course of business, the fund may also enter into contracts that provide general indemnifications. The fund's maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown as this would be dependent on future claims that may be made against the fund. The risk of material loss from such claims is considered remote.

12. Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic.

An outbreak of COVID-19 first detected in China during December 2019 has since spread globally and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization during March 2020. Developments that disrupt global economies and financial markets, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, may magnify factors that affect the Fund's performance.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Board of Trustees of Fidelity Advisor Series I and Shareholders of Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying statement of assets and liabilities, including the schedule of investments, of Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund (one of the funds constituting Fidelity Advisor Series I, referred to hereafter as the “Fund”) as of July 31, 2021, the related statement of operations for the year ended July 31, 2021, the statement of changes in net assets for each of the two years in the period ended July 31, 2021, including the related notes, and the financial highlights for each of the five years in the period ended July 31, 2021 (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Fund as of July 31, 2021, the results of its operations for the year then ended, the changes in its net assets for each of the two years in the period ended July 31, 2021 and the financial highlights for each of the five years in the period ended July 31, 2021 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Basis for Opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Fund’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Fund’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Fund in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits of these financial statements in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. Our procedures included confirmation of securities owned as of July 31, 2021 by correspondence with the custodian, issuer of privately offered securities, agent bank and brokers; when replies were not received from brokers, we performed other auditing procedures. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Trustees and Officers

The Trustees, Members of the Advisory Board (if any), and officers of the trust and fund, as applicable, are listed below. The Board of Trustees governs the fund and is responsible for protecting the interests of shareholders. The Trustees are experienced executives who meet periodically throughout the year to oversee the fund's activities, review contractual arrangements with companies that provide services to the fund, oversee management of the risks associated with such activities and contractual arrangements, and review the fund's performance.  Each of the Trustees oversees 314 funds. 

The Trustees hold office without limit in time except that (a) any Trustee may resign; (b) any Trustee may be removed by written instrument, signed by at least two-thirds of the number of Trustees prior to such removal; (c) any Trustee who requests to be retired or who has become incapacitated by illness or injury may be retired by written instrument signed by a majority of the other Trustees; and (d) any Trustee may be removed at any special meeting of shareholders by a two-thirds vote of the outstanding voting securities of the trust.  Each Trustee who is not an interested person (as defined in the 1940 Act) of the trust and the fund is referred to herein as an Independent Trustee.  Each Independent Trustee shall retire not later than the last day of the calendar year in which his or her 75th birthday occurs.  The Independent Trustees may waive this mandatory retirement age policy with respect to individual Trustees.  Officers and Advisory Board Members hold office without limit in time, except that any officer or Advisory Board Member may resign or may be removed by a vote of a majority of the Trustees at any regular meeting or any special meeting of the Trustees. Except as indicated, each individual has held the office shown or other offices in the same company for the past five years. 

The fund’s Statement of Additional Information (SAI) includes more information about the Trustees. To request a free copy, call Fidelity at 1-877-208-0098.

Experience, Skills, Attributes, and Qualifications of the Trustees. The Governance and Nominating Committee has adopted a statement of policy that describes the experience, qualifications, attributes, and skills that are necessary and desirable for potential Independent Trustee candidates (Statement of Policy). The Board believes that each Trustee satisfied at the time he or she was initially elected or appointed a Trustee, and continues to satisfy, the standards contemplated by the Statement of Policy. The Governance and Nominating Committee also engages professional search firms to help identify potential Independent Trustee candidates who have the experience, qualifications, attributes, and skills consistent with the Statement of Policy. From time to time, additional criteria based on the composition and skills of the current Independent Trustees, as well as experience or skills that may be appropriate in light of future changes to board composition, business conditions, and regulatory or other developments, have also been considered by the professional search firms and the Governance and Nominating Committee. In addition, the Board takes into account the Trustees' commitment and participation in Board and committee meetings, as well as their leadership of standing and ad hoc committees throughout their tenure.

In determining that a particular Trustee was and continues to be qualified to serve as a Trustee, the Board has considered a variety of criteria, none of which, in isolation, was controlling. The Board believes that, collectively, the Trustees have balanced and diverse experience, qualifications, attributes, and skills, which allow the Board to operate effectively in governing the fund and protecting the interests of shareholders. Information about the specific experience, skills, attributes, and qualifications of each Trustee, which in each case led to the Board's conclusion that the Trustee should serve (or continue to serve) as a trustee of the fund, is provided below.

Board Structure and Oversight Function. Robert A. Lawrence is an interested person and currently serves as Acting Chairman. The Trustees have determined that an interested Chairman is appropriate and benefits shareholders because an interested Chairman has a personal and professional stake in the quality and continuity of services provided to the fund. Independent Trustees exercise their informed business judgment to appoint an individual of their choosing to serve as Chairman, regardless of whether the Trustee happens to be independent or a member of management. The Independent Trustees have determined that they can act independently and effectively without having an Independent Trustee serve as Chairman and that a key structural component for assuring that they are in a position to do so is for the Independent Trustees to constitute a substantial majority for the Board. The Independent Trustees also regularly meet in executive session. David M. Thomas serves as Lead Independent Trustee and as such (i) acts as a liaison between the Independent Trustees and management with respect to matters important to the Independent Trustees and (ii) with management prepares agendas for Board meetings.

Fidelity® funds are overseen by different Boards of Trustees. The fund's Board oversees Fidelity's high income and certain equity funds, and other Boards oversee Fidelity's investment-grade bond, money market, asset allocation, and other equity funds. The asset allocation funds may invest in Fidelity® funds overseen by the fund's Board. The use of separate Boards, each with its own committee structure, allows the Trustees of each group of Fidelity® funds to focus on the unique issues of the funds they oversee, including common research, investment, and operational issues. On occasion, the separate Boards establish joint committees to address issues of overlapping consequences for the Fidelity® funds overseen by each Board.

The Trustees operate using a system of committees to facilitate the timely and efficient consideration of all matters of importance to the Trustees, the fund, and fund shareholders and to facilitate compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and oversight of the fund's activities and associated risks.  The Board, acting through its committees, has charged FMR and its affiliates with (i) identifying events or circumstances the occurrence of which could have demonstrably adverse effects on the fund's business and/or reputation; (ii) implementing processes and controls to lessen the possibility that such events or circumstances occur or to mitigate the effects of such events or circumstances if they do occur; and (iii) creating and maintaining a system designed to evaluate continuously business and market conditions in order to facilitate the identification and implementation processes described in (i) and (ii) above.  Because the day-to-day operations and activities of the fund are carried out by or through FMR, its affiliates, and other service providers, the fund's exposure to risks is mitigated but not eliminated by the processes overseen by the Trustees.  While each of the Board's committees has responsibility for overseeing different aspects of the fund's activities, oversight is exercised primarily through the Operations, Audit, and Compliance Committees.  Appropriate personnel, including but not limited to the fund's Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), FMR's internal auditor, the independent accountants, the fund's Treasurer and portfolio management personnel, make periodic reports to the Board's committees, as appropriate, including an annual review of Fidelity's risk management program for the Fidelity® funds.  The responsibilities of each standing committee, including their oversight responsibilities, are described further under "Standing Committees of the Trustees."

Shareholder Expense Example

As a shareholder, you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs, which may include sales charges (loads) on purchase payments or redemption proceeds, as applicable and (2) ongoing costs, which generally include management fees, distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and other Fund expenses. This Example is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in a fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other mutual funds.

The Example is based on an investment of $1,000 invested at the beginning of the period and held for the entire period (February 1, 2021 to July 31, 2021).

Actual Expenses

The first line of the accompanying table provides information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use the information in this line, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. Simply divide your account value by $1,000.00 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000.00 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the first line for a class/Fund under the heading entitled "Expenses Paid During Period" to estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period. If any fund is a shareholder of any underlying mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) (the Underlying Funds), such fund indirectly bears its proportional share of the expenses of the Underlying Funds in addition to the direct expenses incurred presented in the table. These fees and expenses are not included in the annualized expense ratio used to calculate the expense estimate in the table below.

Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes

The second line of the accompanying table provides information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on the actual expense ratio and an assumed rate of return of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the actual return. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in the Fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of the other funds. If any fund is a shareholder of any Underlying Funds, such fund indirectly bears its proportional share of the expenses of the Underlying Funds in addition to the direct expenses as presented in the table. These fees and expenses are not included in the annualized expense ratio used to calculate the expense estimate in the table below.

Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transaction costs. Therefore, the second line of the table is useful in comparing ongoing costs only, and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.

The fund will notify shareholders in January 2022 of amounts for use in preparing 2021 income tax returns.

Board Approval of Investment Advisory Contracts and Management Fees

Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund

Each year, the Board of Trustees, including the Independent Trustees (together, the Board), votes on the renewal of the management contract with Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) and the sub-advisory agreements (together, the Advisory Contracts) for the fund. FMR and the sub-advisers are referred to herein as the Investment Advisers. The Board, assisted by the advice of fund counsel and Independent Trustees' counsel, requests and considers a broad range of information relevant to the renewal of the Advisory Contracts throughout the year.

The Board meets regularly and, at each of its meetings, covers an extensive agenda of topics and materials and considers factors that are relevant to its annual consideration of the renewal of the fund's Advisory Contracts, including the services and support provided to the fund and its shareholders. The Board has established various standing committees (Committees), each composed of and chaired by Independent Trustees with varying backgrounds, to which the Board has assigned specific subject matter responsibilities in order to enhance effective decision-making by the Board. The Board, acting directly and through its Committees, requests and receives information concerning the annual consideration of the renewal of the fund's Advisory Contracts. The Board also meets as needed to review matters specifically related to the Board's annual consideration of the renewal of the Advisory Contracts. Members of the Board may also meet with trustees of other Fidelity funds through joint ad hoc committees to discuss certain matters relevant to all of the Fidelity funds.

At its May 2021 meeting, the Board unanimously determined to renew the fund's Advisory Contracts. In reaching its determination, the Board considered all factors it believed relevant, including (i) the nature, extent, and quality of the services provided to the fund and its shareholders (including the investment performance of the fund); (ii) the competitiveness of the fund's management fee and total expense ratio relative to peer funds; (iii) the total costs of the services provided by and the profits realized by Fidelity from its relationships with the fund; and (iv) the extent to which, if any, economies of scale exist and are realized as the fund grows, and whether any economies of scale are appropriately shared with fund shareholders.

In considering whether to renew the Advisory Contracts for the fund, the Board reached a determination, with the assistance of fund counsel and Independent Trustees' counsel and through the exercise of its business judgment, that the renewal of the Advisory Contracts was in the best interests of the fund and its shareholders and that the compensation payable under the Advisory Contracts was fair and reasonable. The Board's decision to renew the Advisory Contracts was not based on any single factor, but rather was based on a comprehensive consideration of all the information provided to the Board at its meetings throughout the year. The Board, in reaching its determination to renew the Advisory Contracts, was aware that shareholders of the fund have a broad range of investment choices available to them, including a wide choice among funds offered by Fidelity's competitors, and that the fund's shareholders, who have the opportunity to review and weigh the disclosure provided by the fund in its prospectus and other public disclosures, have chosen to invest in this fund, which is part of the Fidelity family of funds.

Nature, Extent, and Quality of Services Provided.  The Board considered Fidelity's staffing as it relates to the fund, including the backgrounds of investment personnel of Fidelity, and also considered the fund's investment objective, strategies, and related investment philosophy. The Independent Trustees also had discussions with senior management of Fidelity's investment operations and investment groups. The Board considered the structure of the investment personnel compensation program and whether this structure provides appropriate incentives to act in the best interests of the fund. Additionally, the Board considered the portfolio managers' investments, if any, in the funds that they manage.

Resources Dedicated to Investment Management and Support Services.  The Board and the Fund Oversight and Research Committees reviewed the general qualifications and capabilities of Fidelity's investment staff, including its size, education, experience, and resources, as well as Fidelity's approach to recruiting, training, managing, and compensating investment personnel. The Board noted that Fidelity has continued to increase the resources devoted to non-U.S. offices, including expansion of Fidelity's global investment organization. The Board also noted that Fidelity's analysts have extensive resources, tools and capabilities that allow them to conduct sophisticated quantitative and fundamental analysis, as well as credit analysis of issuers, counterparties and guarantors. Further, the Board considered that Fidelity's investment professionals have sufficient access to global information and data so as to provide competitive investment results over time, and that those professionals also have access to sophisticated tools that permit them to assess portfolio construction and risk and performance attribution characteristics continuously, as well as to transmit new information and research conclusions rapidly around the world. Additionally, in its deliberations, the Board considered Fidelity's trading, risk management, compliance, and technology and operations capabilities and resources, which are integral parts of the investment management process. The Board also considered Fidelity's investments in business continuity planning, and its success in continuously providing services to the fund notwithstanding the severe disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shareholder and Administrative Services.  The Board considered (i) the nature, extent, quality, and cost of advisory, administrative, and shareholder services performed by the Investment Advisers and their affiliates under the Advisory Contracts and under separate agreements covering transfer agency, pricing and bookkeeping, and securities lending services for the fund; (ii) the nature and extent of the supervision of third party service providers, principally custodians, subcustodians, and pricing vendors; and (iii) the resources devoted to, and the record of compliance with, the fund's compliance policies and procedures. The Board also reviewed the allocation of fund brokerage, including allocations to brokers affiliated with the Investment Advisers, the use of brokerage commissions to pay fund expenses, and the use of "soft" commission dollars to pay for research services.

The Board noted that the growth of fund assets over time across the complex allows Fidelity to reinvest in the development of services designed to enhance the value and convenience of the Fidelity funds as investment vehicles. These services include 24-hour access to account information and market information over the Internet and through telephone representatives, investor education materials and asset allocation tools, and the expanded availability of Fidelity Investor Centers.

The Board noted that, in the past, it and the boards of certain other Fidelity funds had formed an ad hoc Committee on Transfer Agency Fees to review the variety of transfer agency fee structures throughout the industry and Fidelity's competitive positioning with respect to industry participants.

Investment in a Large Fund Family.  The Board considered the benefits to shareholders of investing in a Fidelity fund, including the benefits of investing in a fund that is part of a large family of funds offering a variety of investment disciplines and providing a large variety of mutual fund investor services. The Board noted that Fidelity had taken, or had made recommendations that resulted in the Fidelity funds taking, a number of actions over the previous year that benefited particular funds, including: (i) continuing to dedicate additional resources to Fidelity's investment research process, which includes meetings with management of issuers of securities in which the funds invest, and to the support of the senior management team that oversees asset management; (ii) continuing efforts to enhance Fidelity's global research capabilities; (iii) launching new funds and ETFs with innovative structures, strategies and pricing and making other enhancements to meet client needs; (iv) launching new share classes of existing funds; (v) eliminating purchase minimums and broadening eligibility requirements for certain funds and share classes; (vi) approving the reduction in the holding period for the Class C to Class A conversion policy; (vii) reducing management fees and total expenses for certain target date funds and classes and index funds; (viii) lowering expenses for certain existing funds and classes by implementing or lowering expense caps; (ix) rationalizing product lines and gaining increased efficiencies from fund mergers, liquidations, and share class consolidations; (x) continuing to develop, acquire and implement systems and technology to improve services to the funds and shareholders, strengthen information security, and increase efficiency; and (xi) continuing to implement enhancements to further strengthen Fidelity's product line to increase investors' probability of success in achieving their investment goals, including retirement income goals.

Investment Performance.  The Board considered whether the fund has operated in accordance with its investment objective, as well as its record of compliance with its investment restrictions and its performance history. The Board noted that there was a portfolio management change for the fund in October 2019. The Board will continue to monitor closely the fund's performance, taking into account the portfolio management change.

The Board took into account discussions that occur at Board meetings throughout the year with representatives of the Investment Advisers about fund investment performance. In this regard the Board noted that as part of regularly scheduled fund reviews and other reports to the Board on fund performance, the Board considers annualized return information for the fund for different time periods, measured against an appropriate securities market index (benchmark index) and an appropriate peer group of funds with similar objectives (peer group). In its evaluation of fund investment performance, the Board gave particular attention to information indicating changes in performance of certain Fidelity funds for specific time periods and discussed with the Investment Advisers the reasons for any overperformance or underperformance.

In addition to reviewing absolute and relative fund performance, the Independent Trustees periodically consider the appropriateness of fund performance metrics in evaluating the results achieved. In general, the Independent Trustees believe that fund performance should be evaluated based on net performance (after fees and expenses) of both the highest performing and lowest performing fund share classes, where applicable, compared to appropriate benchmark indices, over appropriate time periods that may include full market cycles, and compared to peer groups, as applicable, over the same periods, taking into account relevant factors including the following: general market conditions; issuer-specific information; and fund cash flows and other factors.

The Independent Trustees recognize that shareholders evaluate performance on a net basis over their own holding periods, for which one-, three-, and five-year periods are often used as a proxy. For this reason, the performance information reviewed by the Board also included net cumulative total return information for the fund and an appropriate benchmark index and peer group for the most recent one-, three-, and five-year periods ended September 30, 2020, as shown below. Returns are shown compared to the 25th percentile (top of box, 75% beaten) and 75th percentile (bottom of box, 25% beaten) of the peer universe.

Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund


Based on its review, the Board concluded that the nature, extent, and quality of services provided to the fund under the Advisory Contracts should continue to benefit the shareholders of the fund.

Competitiveness of Management Fee and Total Expense Ratio.  The Board considered the fund's management fee and total expense ratio compared to "mapped groups" of competitive funds and classes created for the purpose of facilitating the Trustees' competitive analysis of management fees and total expenses. Fidelity creates "mapped groups" by combining similar Lipper investment objective categories that have comparable investment mandates. Combining Lipper investment objective categories aids the Board's management fee and total expense ratio comparisons by broadening the competitive group used for comparison.

Management Fee.  The Board considered two proprietary management fee comparisons for the 12-month periods ended September 30 (June 30 for periods ended 2019 and 2018 and December 31 for periods prior to 2018) shown in basis points (BP) in the chart below. The group of Lipper funds used by the Board for management fee comparisons is referred to below as the "Total Mapped Group." The Total Mapped Group comparison focuses on a fund's standing in terms of gross management fees before expense reimbursements or caps relative to the total universe of funds with comparable investment mandates, regardless of whether their management fee structures also are comparable. Funds with comparable investment mandates offer exposure to similar types of securities. Funds with comparable management fee structures have similar management fee contractual arrangements (e.g., flat rate charged for advisory services, all-inclusive fee rate, etc.). "TMG %" represents the percentage of funds in the Total Mapped Group that had management fees that were lower than the fund's. For example, a hypothetical TMG % of 20% would mean that 80% of the funds in the Total Mapped Group had higher, and 20% had lower, management fees than the fund. The fund's actual TMG %s and the number of funds in the Total Mapped Group are in the chart below. The "Asset-Sized Peer Group" (ASPG) comparison focuses on a fund's standing relative to a subset of non-Fidelity funds within the Total Mapped Group that are similar in size and management fee structure. For example, if a fund is in the first quartile of the ASPG, the fund's management fee ranks in the least expensive or lowest 25% of funds in the ASPG. The ASPG represents at least 15% of the funds in the Total Mapped Group with comparable asset size and management fee structures, subject to a minimum of 50 funds (or all funds in the Total Mapped Group if fewer than 50). Additional information, such as the ASPG quartile in which the fund's management fee rate ranked, is also included in the chart and was considered by the Board.

Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Company Stock Fund


The Board noted that the fund's management fee rate ranked below the median of its Total Mapped Group and below the median of its ASPG for the 12-month period ended September 30, 2020.

The Board noted that, in the past, it and the boards of other Fidelity funds had formed an ad hoc Committee on Group Fee to conduct an in-depth review of the "group fee" component of the management fee of funds with such management fee structures. The Committee's focus included the mechanics of the group fee, the competitive landscape of group fee structures, Fidelity funds with no group fee component and investment products not included in group fee assets. The Board also considered that, for funds subject to the group fee, FMR agreed to voluntarily waive fees over a specified period of time in amounts designed to account for assets converted from certain funds to certain collective investment trusts.

The Board also noted that, in 2013, the ad hoc Committee on Management Fees was formed to conduct an in-depth review of the management fee rates of Fidelity's active equity mutual funds. The Committee focused on the following areas: (i) standard fee structures; (ii) research consumption and trading evolution; (iii) management fee competitiveness/profitability by category; and (iv) factors that drive institutional pricing.

Based on its review, the Board concluded that the fund's management fee is fair and reasonable in light of the services that the fund receives and the other factors considered.

Total Expense Ratio.  In its review of each class's total expense ratio, the Board considered the fund's management fee rate as well as other fund or class expenses, as applicable, such as transfer agent fees, pricing and bookkeeping fees, fund-paid 12b-1 fees, and custodial, legal, and audit fees. The Board also noted that Fidelity may agree to waive fees or reimburse expenses from time to time, and the extent to which, if any, it has done so for the fund. As part of its review, the Board also considered the current and historical total expense ratios of a representative class of the fund compared to competitive fund median expenses. The fund's representative class is compared to those funds and classes in the Total Mapped Group (used by the Board for management fee comparisons) that have a similar sales load structure (SLTG). The Board also considered a total expense ASPG comparison for the representative class, which focuses on the total expenses of the representative class relative to a subset of non-Fidelity funds within the total expense SLTG. The total expense ASPG is limited to 15 larger and 15 smaller classes in fund average assets for a total of 30 classes, where possible. The total expense ASPG comparison excludes performance adjustments and fund-paid 12b-1 fees to eliminate variability in fee structures.

The Board noted that the total expense ratio of Class I ranked above the SLTG competitive median and below the ASPG competitive median for the 12-month period ended September 30, 2020. The Board considered that, in general, various factors can affect total expense ratios. The Board noted that, although Class I is categorized by Lipper as an institutional class, Class I has no investment minimum, unlike most other funds and classes categorized as institutional. As a result, FMR believes Class I is generally more comparable to retail funds and classes. The Board considered that, when compared to retail funds and classes, Class I would not be above the SLTG competitive median for 2020. The Board noted that the fund offers multiple classes, each of which has a different sales load and 12b-1 fee structure, and that the multiple structures are intended to offer a range of pricing options for the intermediary market. The Board also noted that the total expense ratios of the classes vary primarily by the level of their 12b-1 fees, although differences in transfer agent fees may also cause expenses to vary from class to class.

Fees Charged to Other Fidelity Clients.  The Board also considered Fidelity fee structures and other information with respect to clients of Fidelity, such as other funds advised or subadvised by Fidelity, pension plan clients, and other institutional clients with similar mandates. The Board noted that a joint ad hoc committee created by it and the boards of other Fidelity funds periodically reviews and compares Fidelity's institutional investment advisory business with its business of providing services to the Fidelity funds and also noted the most recent findings of the committee. The Board noted that the committee's review included a consideration of the differences in services provided, fees charged, and costs incurred, as well as competition in the markets serving the different categories of clients.

Based on its review of total expense ratios and fees charged to other Fidelity clients, the Board concluded that the total expense ratio of each class of the fund was reasonable in light of the services that the fund and its shareholders receive and the other factors considered.

Costs of the Services and Profitability.  The Board considered the revenues earned and the expenses incurred by Fidelity in conducting the business of developing, marketing, distributing, managing, administering and servicing the fund and servicing the fund's shareholders. The Board also considered the level of Fidelity's profits in respect of all the Fidelity funds.

On an annual basis, Fidelity presents to the Board information about the profitability of its relationships with the fund. Fidelity calculates profitability information for each fund, as well as aggregate profitability information for groups of Fidelity funds and all Fidelity funds, using a series of detailed revenue and cost allocation methodologies which originate with the books and records of Fidelity on which Fidelity's audited financial statements are based. The Audit Committee of the Board reviews any significant changes from the prior year's methodologies and the full Board approves such changes.

A public accounting firm has been engaged annually by the Board as part of the Board's assessment of Fidelity's profitability analysis. The engagement includes the review and assessment of the methodologies used by Fidelity in determining the revenues and expenses attributable to Fidelity's mutual fund business, and completion of agreed-upon procedures in respect of the mathematical accuracy of certain fund profitability information and its conformity to established allocation methodologies. After considering the reports issued under the engagement and information provided by Fidelity, the Board concluded that while other allocation methods may also be reasonable, Fidelity's profitability methodologies are reasonable in all material respects.

The Board also reviewed Fidelity's non-fund businesses and potential indirect benefits such businesses may have received as a result of their association with Fidelity's mutual fund business (i.e., fall-out benefits) as well as cases where Fidelity's affiliates may benefit from the funds' business. The Board considered areas where potential indirect benefits to the Fidelity funds from their relationships with Fidelity may exist. The Board also considered that in 2019 a joint ad hoc committee created by it and the boards of other Fidelity funds evaluated potential fall-out benefits (PFOB Committee). The Board noted that it considered the PFOB Committee's findings in connection with its consideration of the renewal of the Advisory Contracts.

The Board considered the costs of the services provided by and the profits realized by Fidelity in connection with the operation of the fund, including the conclusions of the PFOB Committee, and was satisfied that the profitability was not excessive.

Economies of Scale.  The Board considered whether there have been economies of scale in respect of the management of the Fidelity funds, whether the Fidelity funds (including the fund) have appropriately benefited from any such economies of scale, and whether there is potential for realization of any further economies of scale. The Board considered the extent to which the fund will benefit from economies of scale as assets grow through increased services to the fund, through waivers or reimbursements, or through fee or expense ratio reductions. The Board also noted that a committee (the Economies of Scale Committee) created by it and the boards of other Fidelity funds periodically analyzes whether Fidelity attains economies of scale in respect of the management and servicing of the Fidelity funds, whether the Fidelity funds have appropriately benefited from such economies of scale, and whether there is potential for realization of any further economies of scale.

The Board recognized that the fund's management contract incorporates a "group fee" structure, which provides for lower group fee rates as total "group assets" increase, and for higher group fee rates as total "group assets" decrease ("group assets" as defined in the management contract). FMR calculates the group fee rates based on a tiered asset "breakpoint" schedule that varies based on asset class. The Board considered that the group fee is designed to deliver the benefits of economies of scale to fund shareholders when total Fidelity fund assets increase, even if assets of any particular fund are unchanged or have declined, because some portion of Fidelity's costs are attributable to services provided to all Fidelity funds, and all funds benefit if those costs can be allocated among more assets. The Board further considered that Fidelity agreed to impose a temporary fee waiver in the form of additional breakpoints to the current breakpoint schedule. The Board concluded that, given the group fee structure, fund shareholders will benefit from lower management fees as "group assets" increase at the fund complex level, regardless of whether Fidelity achieves any such economies of scale.

The Board concluded, taking into account the analysis of the Economies of Scale Committee, that economies of scale, if any, are being appropriately shared between fund shareholders and Fidelity.

Additional Information Requested by the Board.  In order to develop fully the factual basis for consideration of the Fidelity funds' advisory contracts, the Board requested and received additional information on certain topics, including: (i) fund flow and performance trends, in particular the underperformance of certain funds and strategies, and Fidelity's long-term strategies for certain funds; (ii) consideration of expanding the use of performance fees for additional funds; (iii) Fidelity's pricing philosophy compared to competitors; (iv) metrics for evaluating index fund and ETF performance and information about ETF trading characteristics; (v) the methodology with respect to evaluating competitive fund data and peer group classifications and fee and expense comparisons; (vi) the expense structures for different funds and classes and information about the differences between various expense structures; (vii) group fee breakpoints; (viii) information regarding other accounts managed by Fidelity and sub-advisory arrangements; and (ix) Fidelity's philosophies and strategies for evaluating funds and classes with lower or declining asset levels.

Based on its evaluation of all of the conclusions noted above, and after considering all factors it believed relevant, the Board concluded that the advisory fee arrangements are fair and reasonable, and that the fund's Advisory Contracts should be renewed.

Liquidity Risk Management Program

The Securities and Exchange Commission adopted Rule 22e-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the Liquidity Rule) to promote effective liquidity risk management throughout the open-end investment company industry, thereby reducing the risk that funds will be unable to meet their redemption obligations and mitigating dilution of the interests of fund shareholders.

The Fund has adopted and implemented a liquidity risk management program pursuant to the Liquidity Rule (the Program) effective December 1, 2018. The Program is reasonably designed to assess and manage the Fund’s liquidity risk and to comply with the requirements of the Liquidity Rule. The Fund’s Board of Trustees (the Board) has designated the Fund’s investment adviser as administrator of the Program. The Fidelity advisers have established a Liquidity Risk Management Committee (the LRM Committee) to manage the Program for each of the Fidelity Funds. The LRM Committee monitors the adequacy and effectiveness of implementation of the Program and on a periodic basis assesses each Fund’s liquidity risk based on a variety of factors including (1) the Fund’s investment strategy, (2) portfolio liquidity and cash flow projections during normal and reasonably foreseeable stressed conditions, (3) shareholder redemptions, (4) borrowings and other funding sources and (5) in the case of exchange-traded funds, certain additional factors including the effect of the Fund’s prices and spreads, market participants, and basket compositions on the overall liquidity of the Fund’s portfolio, as applicable.

In accordance with the Program, each of the Fund’s portfolio investments is classified into one of four liquidity categories described below based on a determination of a reasonable expectation for how long it would take to convert the investment to cash (or sell or dispose of the investment) without significantly changing its market value.

  • Highly liquid investments – cash or convertible to cash within three business days or less
  • Moderately liquid investments – convertible to cash in three to seven calendar days
  • Less liquid investments – can be sold or disposed of, but not settled, within seven calendar days
  • Illiquid investments – cannot be sold or disposed of within seven calendar days

Liquidity classification determinations take into account a variety of factors including various market, trading and investment-specific considerations, as well as market depth, and generally utilize analysis from a third-party liquidity metrics service.

The Liquidity Rule places a 15% limit on a fund’s illiquid investments and requires funds that do not primarily hold assets that are highly liquid investments to determine and maintain a minimum percentage of the fund’s net assets to be invested in highly liquid investments (highly liquid investment minimum or HLIM). The Program includes provisions reasonably designed to comply with the 15% limit on illiquid investments and for determining, periodically reviewing and complying with the HLIM requirement as applicable.

At a recent meeting of the Fund’s Board of Trustees, the LRM Committee provided a written report to the Board pertaining to the operation, adequacy, and effectiveness of implementation of the Program for the annual period from December 1, 2019 through November 30, 2020. The report concluded that the Program has been implemented and is operating effectively and is reasonably designed to assess and manage the Fund’s liquidity risk.

Audit Committee Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures

 

The trusts Audit Committee must pre-approve all audit and non-audit services provided by a funds independent registered public accounting firm relating to the operations or financial reporting of the fund. Prior to the commencement of any audit or non-audit services to a fund, the Audit Committee reviews the services to determine whether they are appropriate and permissible under applicable law.


The Audit Committee has adopted policies and procedures to, among other purposes, provide a framework for the Committees consideration of non-audit services by the audit firms that audit the Fidelity funds. The policies and procedures require that any non-audit service provided by a fund audit firm to a Fidelity fund and any non-audit service provided by a fund auditor to a Fund Service Provider that relates directly to the operations and financial reporting of a Fidelity fund (Covered Service) are subject to approval by the Audit Committee before such service is provided.


All Covered Services must be approved in advance of provision of the service either: (i) by formal resolution of the Audit Committee, or (ii) by oral or written approval of the service by the Chair of the Audit Committee (or if the Chair is unavailable, such other member of the Audit Committee as may be designated by the Chair to act in the Chairs absence). The approval contemplated by (ii) above is permitted where the Treasurer determines that action on such an engagement is necessary before the next meeting of the Audit Committee.


Non-audit services provided by a fund audit firm to a Fund Service Provider that do not relate directly to the operations and financial reporting of a Fidelity fund are reported to the Audit Committee periodically.


Non-Audit Services Approved Pursuant to Rule 2-01(c)(7)(i)(C) and (ii) of Regulation S-X (De Minimis Exception)


There were no non-audit services approved or required to be approved by the Audit Committee pursuant to the De Minimis Exception during the Funds(s) last two fiscal years relating to services provided to (i) the Fund(s) or (ii) any Fund Service Provider that relate directly to the operations and financial reporting of the Fund(s).

EXHIBIT EX-99.CODE ETH


FIDELITY FUNDS’ CODE OF ETHICS FOR

PRESIDENT, TREASURER AND PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING OFFICER



I.  Purposes of the Code/Covered Officers


This document constitutes the Code of Ethics (Code) adopted by the Fidelity Funds (Funds) pursuant to the provisions of Rule 30b2-1(a) under the Investment Company Act of 1940), which Rule implements Sections 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 with respect to registered investment companies.  The Code applies to the Fidelity Funds’ President and Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer (Covered Officers).  Fidelity’s Ethics Office, a part of Corporate Compliance Group within Core Compliance, administers the Code.


The purposes of the Code are to deter wrongdoing and to promote, on the part of the Covered Officers:


·

honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships;

·

full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Fidelity Funds submit to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and in other public communications by a Fidelity Fund;

·

compliance with applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations;

·

the prompt internal reporting to an appropriate person or persons identified in the Code of violations of the Code; and

·

accountability for adherence to the Code.


Each Covered Officer should adhere to a high standard of business ethics and should be sensitive to situations that may give rise to actual as well as apparent conflicts of interest.


II.

Covered Officers Should Handle Ethically

Actual and Apparent Conflicts of Interest


Overview.  A “conflict of interest” occurs when a Covered Officer’s private interest interferes with the interests of, or his service to, the Fidelity Funds.  For example, a conflict of interest would arise if a Covered Officer, or a member of his family, receives improper personal benefits as a result of his position with the Fidelity Funds.  


Certain conflicts of interest arise out of the relationships between Covered Officers and the Fidelity Funds and already are subject to conflict of interest provisions in the Investment Company Act of 1940 (Investment Company Act) and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (Investment Advisers Act).  For example, Covered Officers may not individually engage in certain transactions (such as the purchase or sale of securities or other property) with a Fidelity Fund because of their status as “affiliated persons” of the Fund.  Separate compliance programs and procedures of the Fidelity Funds, Fidelity Management & Research Company (FMR) and the other Fidelity companies are designed to prevent, or identify and correct, violations of these provisions.  This Code does not, and is not intended to, repeat or replace these programs and procedures, and such conflicts fall outside of the parameters of this Code.


Although typically not presenting an opportunity for improper personal benefit, conflicts arise from, or as a result of, the contractual relationship between the Fidelity Funds and FMR (or another Fidelity company) of which the Covered Officers are also officers or employees.  As a result, this Code recognizes that the Covered Officers will, in the normal course of their duties (whether formally for the Fidelity Funds, FMR or another Fidelity company), be involved in establishing policies and implementing decisions that have different effects on the Fidelity Funds, FMR and other Fidelity companies.  The participation of the Covered Officers in such activities is inherent in the contractual relationship between the Fidelity Funds and FMR (or another Fidelity company), and is consistent with the performance by the Covered Officers of their duties as officers of the Fidelity Funds.  Thus, if performed in conformity with the provisions of the Investment Company Act and the Investment Advisers Act, such activities will be deemed to have been handled ethically.  In addition, it is recognized by the Funds’ Board of Trustees (Board) that the Covered Officers also may be officers or employees of one or more other Fidelity Funds covered by this Code.


Other conflicts of interest are covered by the Code, even if such conflicts of interest are not subject to provisions in the Investment Company Act and the Investment Advisers Act.  The following list provides examples of conflicts of interest under the Code, but Covered Officers should keep in mind that these examples are not exhaustive.  The overarching principle is that the personal interest of a Covered Officer should not be placed improperly before the interest of a Fidelity Fund.  


*               *               *


Each Covered Officer must:


·

not use his or her personal influence or personal relationships improperly to influence investment decisions or financial reporting by any Fidelity Fund whereby the Covered Officer would benefit personally to the detriment of any Fidelity Fund;

·

not cause a Fidelity Fund to take action, or fail to take action, for the individual personal benefit of the Covered Officer rather than the benefit of the Fidelity Fund;

·

not engage in any outside business activity, including serving as a director or trustee, that prevents the Covered Officer from devoting appropriate time and attention to the Covered Officer’s responsibilities with the Fidelity Funds;

·

not have a consulting or employment relationship with any of the Fidelity Funds’ service providers that are not affiliated with Fidelity; and

·

not retaliate against any employee or Covered Officer for reports of actual or potential misconduct, which are made in good faith.


With respect to other fact patterns, if a Covered Officer is in doubt, other potential conflict of interest situations should be described immediately to the Fidelity Ethics Office for resolution.  Similarly, any questions a Covered Officer has generally regarding the application or interpretation of the Code should be directed to the Fidelity Ethics Office immediately.


III.  Disclosure and Compliance


·

Each Covered Officer should familiarize himself with the disclosure requirements generally applicable to the Fidelity Funds.

·

Each Covered Officer should not knowingly misrepresent, or cause others to misrepresent, facts about any Fidelity Fund to others, whether within or outside Fidelity, including to the Board and auditors, and to governmental regulators and self-regulatory organizations;

·

Each Covered Officer should, to the extent appropriate within his area of responsibility, consult with other officers and employees of the Fidelity Funds, FMR and the Fidelity service providers, and with the Board’s Compliance Committee,  with the goal of promoting full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in the reports and documents the Fidelity Funds file with, or submit to, the SEC and in other public communications made by the Fidelity Funds; and

·

It is the responsibility of each Covered Officer to promote compliance with the standards and restrictions imposed by applicable laws, rules and regulations.


IV.  Reporting and Accountability


Each Covered Officer must:


·

upon receipt of the Code, and annually thereafter, submit to the Fidelity Ethics Office an acknowledgement stating that he or she has received, read, and understands the Code; and

·

notify the Fidelity Ethics Office promptly if he or she knows of any violation of the Code.  Failure to do so is itself a violation of this Code.  


The Fidelity Ethics Office shall take all action it considers appropriate to investigate any actual or potential violations reported to it.  Upon completion of the investigation, if necessary, the matter will be reviewed with senior management or other appropriate parties, and a determination will be made as to whether any action should be taken as detailed below.  The Covered Officer will be informed of any action determined to be appropriate.  The Fidelity Ethics Office will inform the Personal Trading Committee of all Code violations and actions taken in response.  Without implied limitation, appropriate remedial, disciplinary or preventive action may include a written warning, a letter of censure, suspension, dismissal or, in the event of criminal or other serious violations of law, notification of the SEC or other appropriate law enforcement authorities.  Additionally, other legal remedies may be pursued.  


The policies and procedures described in the Code do not create any obligations to any person or entity other than the Fidelity Funds.  The Code is intended solely for the internal use by the Fidelity Funds and does not constitute a promise, contract or an admission by or on behalf of any Fidelity Fund as to any fact, circumstance, or legal conclusion.  The Fidelity Funds, the Fidelity companies and the Fidelity Chief Ethics Officer retain the discretion to decide whether the Code applies to a specific situation, and how it should be interpreted.


V.  Oversight


Material violations of this Code will be reported promptly by FMR to the Board’s Compliance Committee.  In addition, at least once each year, FMR will provide a written report to the Board, which describes any issues arising under the Code since the last report to the Board, including, but not limited to, information about material violations of the Code and action taken in response to the material violations.



VI.  Other Policies and Procedures


This Code shall be the sole code of ethics adopted by the Fidelity Funds for purposes of Section 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the rules and forms applicable to registered investment companies thereunder.  Other Fidelity policies or procedures that cover the behavior or activities of Covered Officers are separate requirements applying to the Covered Officers (and others), and are not part of this Code.  


VII.  Amendments


Any material amendments or changes to this Code must be approved or ratified by a majority vote of the Board, including a majority of the Trustees who are not interested persons of the Fidelity Funds.


VIII.  Records and Confidentiality


Records of any violation of the Code and of the actions taken as a result of such violations will be kept by the Fidelity Ethics Office.  All reports and records prepared or maintained pursuant to this Code will be considered confidential and shall be maintained and protected accordingly.  Except as otherwise required by law or this Code, such matters shall not be disclosed to anyone other than the Fidelity Ethics Office, the Personal Trading Committee, the Board, appropriate personnel at the relevant Fidelity company or companies and the legal counsel of any or all of the foregoing.
