On Thursday, Fidelity Investments, a leading provider of ETFs with more than $585 billion in ETF client assets, announced the launch of the Fidelity U.S. Multifactor ETF (FLRG). This ETF expands Fidelity’s broad offering, which now includes 33 ETFs, all competitively priced, and available commission-free on Fidelity’s online retail and institutional brokerage platforms.
Fidelity U.S. Multifactor ETF has a total net expense ratio of 0.29% (as of 9/17/2020). The full Fidelity lineup now includes three actively-managed equity ETFs, three actively-managed bond ETFs, 15 factor ETFs, 11 passive equity sector ETFs and Fidelity ONEQ.
“The launch of our U.S. Multifactor ETF strengthens one of the industry’s already deepest suites of factor ETFs,” says Greg Friedman, Fidelity’s Head of ETF Management and Strategy. “We continue to see a growing demand for ‘smart’ beta strategies as investors look for opportunities to help drive returns or manage risk. Today’s launch further reinforces our leadership in offering investors exceptional choice and value to help meet their distinct financial goals.”
Fidelity’s full lineup of ETFs, including today’s new Fidelity U.S. Multifactor ETF, is available for purchase commission-free online for individual investors, registered investment advisors, and broker-dealers on Fidelity’s ETF platform. Fidelity’s platform offers individual investors and advisors access to more than 2,000 ETFs, commission-free.
About Fidelity U.S. Multifactor ETF

The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its assets in securities included in the Fidelity U.S. Multifactor Index. The Fidelity U.S. Multifactor Index is designed to reflect the performance of stocks of large and mid-capitalization U.S. companies with attractive valuations, high quality profiles, positive momentum signals, and lower volatility than the broader market.
