Fidelity Investments has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission Dec. 1 to offer a broad range of domestic and international equity and fixed income exchange-traded funds – putting to rest longtime speculations as to when, not if, Fidelity would enter the ETF market.

Fidelity spokeswoman Sophie Launay told IndexUniverse that Fidelity is planning a wide array of ETFs, in terms of asset classes and fund structures, including master-feeder funds.
