That's one update that Abby Johnson, CEO and chair, and her team reveal in their freshly-released 2020 shareholder update for the privately held, Boston-based giant. Bart Grenier, head of AM, notes that the unit brought in $144 billion in net inflows last year.

Within Fidelity AM, the biggest inflows winners were the Boston Behemoth's money market funds, which brought in $90 billion in net 2020 inflows. Other big winners include managed accounts ($50 billion in net inflows) and direct-sold index funds ($39 billion). On the ETF side, Fidelity's AUM reached $45 billion by years-end.

Across all of Fidelity, revenue rose 0.5 percent to $21 billion in 2020. Operating income rose 4.6 percent to $7.2 billion, while operating expenses fell 2.1 percent to $13.8 billion. (That translates to a 34.3 percent operating margin.) Total AUA rose 17.9 percent to $9.8 trillion.

The firm added 10,500 new employees in 2020. 6,100 of those were in U.S. customer-facing roles (up 72 percent from 2019).
