Question

You invested $1,000 in a mutual fund with a 6% front-end load and an expense ratio of 1%. Expenses are paid at the end of each year. The fund produced an annual return of 4% before fees.

What will be the value of your investment after 7 years?

Answer #1

Mutual funds with front-end load reduce the investment amount by the front-end load. so, actual amount invested by the fund is lower than the amount invested by the investor.

Actual amount invested by the fund = gross investment amount*(1-front-end load) = $1,000*(1-0.06) = $1,000*0.94 = $940

Net return generated by the fund = annual return before fees - expense ratio = 4% - 1% = 3%

value of investment after 7 years = Actual amount invested by
the fund*(1+Net return generated by the fund)^{no. of
years}

value of investment after 7 years = $940*(1+0.03)^{7} =
$940*1.03^{7} = $940*1.22987386542487 = $1,156.08

the value of your investment after 7 years will be $1,156.08.

Suppose an individual invests $26,000 in a load mutual fund for
two years. The load fee entails an up-front commission charge of
3.0 percent of the amount invested and is deducted from the
original funds invested. In addition, annual fund operating
expenses (or 12b-1 fees) are 0.61 percent. The annual fees are
charged on the average net asset value invested in the fund and are

you invested $2000 in a mutual fund with a front- end load of

invested increased in value by 11% and 5%, respectively for 2005
and 2006. the fund's expense ratio was constant at 1.25%. what is
your total return if you sold your shares of the fund at the end of
2006?

You are going to invest in a stock mutual fund with a front-end
load of 5 percent and an expense ratio of 1.57 percent. You also
can invest in a money market mutual fund with a return of 2.6

your investment for 2 years, what annual return must the stock
mutual fund earn to exceed an investment in the money market fund?
