Fido Outsources in Japan

Reported by InvestmentWires Staff, 

Fidelity has decided to outsource recordkeeping in the Japanese defined contribution market, reports Reuters. The news was revealed when the Boston Behemoth told the news service it is nixing plans for a call center in Tochigi where the firm has already purchased land. The center was to have supported DC administration and served as a call center. Fidelity told Reuters it will use the Internet and its broker-dealer and bank partners to provide distribution instead.
