Fidelity China Special Situations (LSEFCSS) is a large British investment trust dedicated to long-term investments in China. Established in 2010, the company is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. The chairman is John Owen. The fund is managed by Dale Nicholls of Fidelity Worldwide Investment.

Launched with much publicity over the stock-picking skills of Anthony Bolton, the launch, in April 2010, which attracted £430 million in investment, was one of the largest ever. A further £150 million followed with a second placing soon after. Since then the fund attracted a great deal of criticism due to its poor performance in 2011. Anthony Bolton was succeeded as Portfolio Manager by Dale Nicholls on 1st April 2014. [1][2][3]

The firm reduced its annual management charge to 1.0% of net assets from 1st April 2014, at the same time as removing the commission paid to financial advisers. [4]

In addition, a performance fee is payable if the fund outperforms the MSCI China Index by more than 2%. The value of the fee is 15% of any outperformance, to a maximum of 1.0%.[5]
