Fidelity Investments to cut nearly 1,300 jobs

Fidelity Investments is cutting nearly 1,300 jobs this month and the mutual fund company says more layoffs are coming early next year.

Boston-based Fidelity said Thursday it will lay off about 2.9 percent of its more than 44,000-employee work force later this month. The company isn't specifying which of its far-flung locations will be affected.

A second rounds of layoffs is planned in the first three months of next year. Fidelity says the number of those cuts will be determined in coming weeks.

Fidelity says the cuts are a response to global economic conditions and unsettled financial markets.
