Question

An investor is considering investing into a mutual fund. For a) and b), alculate the amount available after 20 years assuming that the investor reinvests all distributions. All funds considered generate a 10% annual return throughout the period and the amount invested annually is always $3000.

a) The first fund charges no fees on entry or exit or on an annual basis.

b) The second fund charges a 5% load fee so that only $2850 is actually invested in the fund every year

Answer #1

Future Value of Mutual Funds A & B

Mutual Fund A

Number of Years (t) = 20 Years

Interest Rate ( r) = 10%

Annual Investments = 3000

**Formula**

FV factor = {(1+r)t – 1 } / r

=(1.1^20-1)/0.1

= 57.275

= 57.275*3000

= 171825 $

Mutual Fund B

Number of Years (t) = 20 Years

Interest Rate ( r) = 10%

Annual Investments = 2850 (After consider entry load)

**Formula**

FV factor = {(1+r)t – 1 } / r

=(1.1^20-1)/0.1

= 57.275

= 57.275*2850

= 163234 $

It is better to invest in Mutual fund A since it provides higher return than Mutual fund B.

Calculate the amount available after 20 years assuming that the
investor reinvests all distributions. All funds considered generate
a 10% annual return throughout the period and the amount invested
annually is always $3000. The fund charges a 5% load fee so that
only $2850 is actually invested in the fund every year. (Assume
that distributions are not subject to the load fee) .

You have $10,000 to invest and are considering two mutual funds:
No-load Fund and Economy Fund. The No-load Fund charges a 12b-1 fee
of 1% and maintains an expense ratio of 0.50%. The Economy Fund
charges a front-end load of 4%, but has no 12b-1 fee and an expense
ratio of 0.50%. Assume that the rate of return on both funds’
portfolios (before any fees) is 8% per year.
If you plan to buy and hold for three years, which...
