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?

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*1.037 = \$940*1.22987386542487 = \$1,156.08

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