Upcoming changes for Faculty 401(a) investment options results in lower expenses

Fidelity® OTC and Fidelity® Contrafund have recently been converted into lower cost share classes. Fidelity Investments make these lower-expense share classes available to companies and organizations with account balances that exceed certain thresholds. University of Minnesota plan participants invested in these account options have reached the minimum collectively. Therefore, every participant with a balance in these investment options will benefit from this cost saving conversion.

The new name and share class of the two funds affected by the lower cost share class are:

Current option Current net expense ratio New option New net expense ratio Expense reduction
Fidelity® OTC1,2 0.81 Fidelity® OTC K1,2 0.70 -0.11
Fidelity® Contrafund®3 0.74 Fidelity® Contrafund® K63 0.45 -0.29

No action is required on your part. This share class conversion only changes the investment management fees that Fidelity impose on your account and reduces your expenses. The investment objectives, strategies and portfolio management teams will remain the same for these two investment options. If you wish to make changes to your investment elections for future contributions or initiate any transfers, you may do so by logging into your account on this website or by contacting a Plan Specialist at 1-800-421-3334.


1 Investments in small, mid or micro cap companies involve greater risks not associated with investing in more established companies, such as business risk, stock price fluctuations, increased sensitivity to changing economic conditions, less certain growth prospects and illiquidity.

2 Since this fund focuses its investments on companies in one specified sector, the fund may involve a greater degree of risk than an investment with greater diversification.

3 Investment risks associated with international investing, in addition to other risks, generally will include currency fluctuations, political, social and economic instability and differences in accounting standards when investing in foreign markets.

Portfolios that invest in high yield securities are subject to greater credit risk and price fluctuation than many fixed income investments.

Investment risks associated with international investing, in addition to other risks, generally will include currency fluctuations, political, social and economic instability and differences in accounting standards when investing in foreign markets.

Investments in fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk and, as such, the net asset value of bond and real estate funds will fall as interest rates rise.
