Fidelity International, a fund manager, has announced that it is to cut up to 200 of its 2,000 UK staff. The company has offices in London, Surrey and Kent in the UK, although it has not been announced how many jobs will be cut at each site or when these cuts will be complete, although as of 19 October 2008 the company has already started to implement the job cuts. The company is reducing its headcount in an attempt to reduce costs as a result of the falling value of its assets.
