How will I receive my money or shares from a corporate action?

Corporate actions will sometimes result in shares or cash being issued. In these scenarios, your shares or cash will arrive in your Fidelity account on or just after the "Effective date" shown on your corporate action screen. This is also referred to as the "Pay date".

For actions where cash is being used to buy more shares, an on-screen message will provide confirmation of this within the "View details" screen.

To view your corporate action, you will need to log in to your online account or go back to your account summary. From here select 'Manage Investments' from the top of the page and then 'Corporate actions'.
