What it invests in: Each Freedom fund invests in a diversified portfolio of Fidelity mutual funds. Each fund's overall asset allocation strategy is based on the number of years until its target retirement date, and the strategy gradually becomes more conservative as each fund approach- es its target date. After reaching the target retirement date, the fund continues to be managed more conservatively for 10-15 more years, until the asset mix is approximately the same as that of the Fidelity Freedom Income Fund. Ultimately, it is expected that the fund will merge
into the Freedom Income Fund.
Fidelity Freedom 2050 Fund invests approximately 70% in domestic equity funds, 20% in international equity
funds, and 11% in bond funds. The fund's current and/or projected target asset allocation percentages are also available in the fund's fact sheet, prospectus, and annual and semiannual reports. The fund's manager selects underlying funds from those named in the fund's prospec- tus. Each underlying Fidelity mutual fund is separately managed by its applicable portfolio manager(s) in accordance with its own investment objective and, depending on that objective, may invest in domestic and foreign equities, investment-grade and/or high-yield fixed-income
securities, and short-term investments.
The investment risk of this fund changes over time as its asset allocation changes. The fund is sub-
ject to the volatility of the financial markets, including that of equity and fixed-income investments in the U.S. and abroad, and may be subject to risks associated with investing in high-yield, small-cap and foreign securities. Principal invested is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the fund's target date.
