], is ready for its closeup, according to InvestmentNews
The financial pub gave ink to a number of notable members in this team, including: Peter Dixon
, PM of the Fidelity Select Retailing Fund

senior vice president of equity research; Matthew Schuldt
, PM of the Fidelity Select Computers Fund
; and John Roth
, PM of the $2-billion Fidelity New Millennium Fund
The pub notes that this group not only manages the Fidelity Select
sector funds but also provide the research blood for the entire Fidelity mutual fund family.
According to InvestmentNews
there has been a "relatively low asset total" in the funds thanks to a "lack of push", but that is about to change, according to Bartel.
Fidelity recently began advertising the funds, but what could really thrust them into the spotlight would be an ETF makeover, according to experts cited in the article.
For example, InvestmentNews
said that one move that hinted at the company's ETF intentions was the hiring of Anthony Rochte, a former managing director at State Street Global Advisors, the second-largest pro-vider of ETFs, to head a new division focused on sector investing.
