Redemption Fee

A fee that some mutual funds assess when a shareholder redeems shares from the fund during a certain, usually brief period of time after purchase. It may be a flat fee or a percentage of the value of the shares redeemed. Mutual funds charge redemption fees to discourage new investors from withdrawing from the mutual fund if the fund's net asset value drops unexpectedly.

Redemption fee.

Some open-end mutual funds impose a redemption fee when you sell shares in the fund, often during a specific, and sometimes brief, period of time after you purchase those shares.

The fee is usually a percentage of the value of the shares you sell, but it may also be a flat fee, or fixed amount.

The purpose of the fee is to prevent large-scale withdrawals from the fund in response to changes in the financial markets, which might require the fund manager to sell holdings at a loss in order to meet the fund's obligation to buy back your shares.
