Fidelity Investments (Fidelity) is one of the world’s largest providers of financial services, with assets under administration of over $3.5 trillion. The firm is a leading provider of investment management, retirement planning, portfolio guidance, brokerage, benefits outsourcing, and many other financial products and services to more than 20 million individuals and institutions, as well as through 5,000 financial intermediary firms.
In 2009, Fidelity undertook a revision of its corporate social responsibility strategy, focusing on sustained impact with a small number of best-in-class education nonprofit organizations. Citizen Schools – which focuses on setting middle school students on a path to success in high school, college and beyond – is one of Fidelity’s chosen partners. This partnership helps Fidelity meet its corporate social responsibility goals, provides professional development and mentoring opportunities to its employees, and ensures that low income youth build the work, life and academic skills they need to succeed.
