Symbol: FADMXExpense Ratio: 0.68%

Fidelity Strategic Income balances higher quality, investment-grade bonds with junkier, higher-yielding bonds to deliver protection in down markets and more income than the bonds in the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond index.

Managers Ford O’Neil and Adam Kramer make the big-picture decisions and leave the bond picking to experts—other solid portfolio managers at Fidelity—in each bond subsector.
