C-Share

C-Share

A class of mutual fund with a constant load. The load is a fee that the investor pays in order to maintain his/her investment in a mutual fund; it is designed to cover the fund's costs. A constant load, unlike a front-end or back-end load, is paid on an ongoing basis, usually annually. See also: 12b-1 fee.
