If there were a 1?% load on this? fund, what would your rate of return? be?

The compounded rate of return on this investment over the? three-year period is

Value of investment Three year Ago = 1,000 × \$19.51

= \$19,510

VAlue of Investment Three year Ago was \$19,510.

Value of investment today = 1,100 × \$22.02

= \$24,222

Value of investment Today is \$24,222

Net Proceed from sale of investment = \$24,222 × (1 - 1%)

= \$23,979.78.

Rate of return in three year = (\$23,979.78 - \$19,510) / \$19,510

= \$4,469.79 / \$19,510

= 22.91%.

Total Return on investment is 22.91%.

= 1.0712 - 1

= 7.12%

Annual Return on investment is 7.12%.
