For many investors, a well-diversified international mutual fund will do the job of global exposure. And certainly exchange traded funds have provided a fast-growing, and much more focused, approach to international investing.
But for investors and traders willing to make a serious commitment to global markets, this new platform takes it to a new level. This isn't for amateurs. Those with a $1 million account balance at Fidelity will qualify for access. Or those who make 120 trades a year are invited. But Fidelity is willing to make exceptions to these minimums for those who express an interest.
Walt Disney said it best: "It's a small world, after all." For investors, Fidelity is making that statement ring true.
