|What are12-b1 fees & do no-loads charge it?
By The-Adviser.com -
|New York - 12-b-1 fees are named for the 1980 Securities and
Exchange regulation that created them.
The fees represent annual charges levied against the total balance of a mutual fund's assets and are used to pay financial advisers and brokerage firms who steer investors towards the fund.
Although these funds are not charged directly, each individual investor pays for them as they reduce the overall investment returns of the fund. The fees charged are separate from load or back-end commissions.
According to a recent study by Lipper Analytical Services, approximately 60% of all mutual funds, including "no load mutual funds" charge these fees.
The cost of 12-B1 fees are generally reasonable and may be paid to your Financial Adviser.
Consider these fees when reviewing the your total advisory fees.
