Fidelity Investments plans to launch a "no transaction fee" account this fall for buyers of no-load mutual funds, following the lead of Charles Schwab & Co.

Under the program, Fidelity would sell an array of funds -- its own as well as those of other companies -- and would handle shareholder servicing on the accounts. Customers would pay no fees and would receive consolidated monthly statements from Fidelity.
