On Oct. 29, 2021, Fidelity Four-in-One Index will change its name to Fidelity Multi-Asset Index and transition to a new allocation scheme; its pillar ratings remain the same, but its Analyst Rating changes to Gold from Silver in light of its transformation. We've long admired the fund's low costs, stable asset mix, and broad diversification but didn't find it quite worthy of our top rating. While it held crucial core assets for a one-fund portfolio--the full U.S. stock universe split between two funds, non-U.S. developed-markets large-cap equities, and a standard set of investment-grade U.S. bonds--that was all it had. Many peers had expanded to emerging-markets stocks, lower-quality bonds, and so on.
