Investments & Financial Planning
In relation to mutual funds , what is a Back end loan fund ?
A Back-end loan fund is a mutual fund that charges investors a fee to sell or redeem shares. The fee ranges from 4% to 6%. Some back-end load funds impose a full commission if the shares are redeemed within a designated time such as one year. The commission decreases the longer the investor holds the shares. The formal name for the back-end load is the contingent deferred sales charge.
