Back-end Load

The HTML to link to this page
 

A back-end load is a sales charge or a commission paid when an investor sells an investment. A back-end load may also be known as a redemption fee or a deferred sales charge. In England a back-end load fee is sometimes called an exit charge. A back-end load is often added to a mutual fund or to some annuities. A back-end load is designed to discourage investors from making withdrawals from a fund or annuity, although oftentimes back-end load fees will be waived if an investor holds an investment for a certain number of years. A back-end load can be a sales incentive for an investment, as many investors balk at paying fees up-front but aren't as concerned about fees paid down the road.
