Question

Suppose an individual invests $5,000 in a load mutual fund for
two years. The load fee entails an up-front commission charge of 2
percent of the amount invested and is deducted from the original
funds invested. In addition, annual fund operating expenses (or
12b-1 fees) are 0.75 percent. The annual fees are charged on the
average net asset value invested in the fund and are recorded at
the end of each year. Investments in the fund return 8 percent each
year paid on the last day of the year. If the investor reinvests
the annual returns paid on the investment, calculate the annual
return on the mutual fund over the two-year investment period.
**(Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer
to 3 decimal places. (e.g., 32.161))**

**Annual return**

Answer #1

Initial investment = $5000

Front end load = $5000 * 2% = $100

Total investment = $5000 + $100 = $5100

Amount of investment at the end of year one = $5,100 * (1+8%) =
$5,508

Operating expenses based on average NAV = (($5100 + $5508) / 2)
* 0.75%

= $5304 * 0.75%

= $39.78

Net investable fund for year 2 = $5,508 - $39.78 = $5,468.22

Amount of investment at the end of year 2 = $5,468.22 * (1+8%) = $5,905.6776

Operating expense = (($5,468.22 + $5,905.6776) / 2) *
0.75%

= $5,686.9488 * 0.75%

= $42.652116

Net value of investment at the end of year 2 = $5,905.6776 - $42.652116 = $5,863.025484

Annual return = ($5,863.025484 / $5,000)^(1/2) - 1

= 8.287%

Annual return = 8.287%

front-end load, 1.5% back-end load, 0.75% management fee and 0.23%
12b-1 fees. How much money will be invested into the fund after

b. How does your answer change if you plan to invest for six...

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

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...
