Fidelity Event Driven Opportunities Fund, which will also be launched in corporate class, aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equity securities of companies that are involved in corporate events, including, but not limited to, spin-offs, index deletions, mergers and acquisitions, companies undergoing reorganizations and other event-driven opportunities. It seeks to uncover equity securities that have been mispriced due to these and other corporate events.
