Spread-Load Contractual Plan
An agreement in which the load of a mutual fund is spread out evenly over a period of time. That is, the buyer of shares in the mutual fund does not pay the load the first time he/she buys shares. Rather, he/she pays a portion of the load each time he/she buys more shares until the load is paid in full. This assumes the buyer consistently buys shares over an extended time. It is also called a load spread option.
