WASHINGTON -- Fidelity Investments is telling investors and advisors that clients' data appears not to have been captured by the hackers who infiltrated the systems of JPMorgan Chase earlier this year and may have gained access to other major firms, including Fidelity. "Through our continued cooperation with law enforcement officials, we can reiterate and have confirmed with the FBI that there is no indication Fidelity customer accounts, information, services or systems were affected by the recent attack that impacted JPMorgan Chase," Fidelity spokesman Adam Banker said in an email.

Banker touts Fidelity's "multiple layers of security" to safeguard clients' data, and says that the firm has been in contact with its advisors about the breach, which was reported last week in the Wall Street Journal.
