Hidden Fees Pose a Fiduciary Barrier - Show 28-2
May 01, 2012
Mark and Tom discuss the various fees associated with mutual funds: a) 12B-1 fees – an ongoing expense charged to the fund and paid to the commissioned representative for selling the fund; b) Front-End Loads – a commission or sales charge applied at the initial purchase, and c) Back-End Loads – a sales charge that investors pay when selling mutual fund shares within a specified number of years, usually 5 to 10 years. These fees pose a barrier to operating as a fiduciary.
