Fidelity Investments has launched on-line seminars to market the much- touted Roth IRA.

The seminars, which were rolled out in the last two weeks, present a mixture of graphics and text explaining Roth IRA eligibility to investors and run for three to four minutes, said a spokesman for the Boston-based fund giant. They can be accessed by hitting the retirement tab on the personal investing section at the Fidelity Web site.

The decision to go on-line with the Roth IRA was made following a successful nationwide campaign of 145 "live" meetings with investors this month, the spokesman said.
