(redirected from 12B1 Plan)

12B-1 Fund

A mutual fund that charges shareholders a small percentage of the fund's market value, instead of a load (or sales fee). That is, a 12B-1 Plan does not require shareholders to pay a fee when buying or selling shares; rather, they simply deduct what is owed to the shareholder once per year. Usually a 12B-1 plan charges less than 1%.
