Job Description:
We are looking for fund accountants on behalf of our client, Fidelity Investments.  These
contract positions are located in Boston, Mass. 


Function Overview


The Fund Accounting department performs the daily pricing and bookkeeping for retail and
institutional funds managed by Fidelity Investments. The primary function of this group is to
calculate the daily Net Asset Value (NAV), which is the price shareholders use to buy and sell
Fidelity's mutual funds. There are two distinct processes to calculate the NAV. The first
process is to update last night's NAV for any trading activity as well as any daily expenses,
shareholder purchases and redemptions, and income earned. The second process is updating the
NAV for the change in market value on the securities the fund holds. This is completed after
the stock, bond, and futures markets close for the day, usually 4 p.m. EST. The pricing
process occupies the late afternoon and is considered the busiest portion of the day.
Accounting Analysts for fixed income mutual funds also calculate a daily distribution and SEC
yield. The daily distribution (milrate) is the income payout a shareholder receives; it is
accrued daily and paid monthly. The SEC yield is a standard yield to maturity calculation
across all mutual fund companies that allow shareholders to compare funds.
