Mutual funds can effectively charge ales fees in one of three ways: front-end load fees, 12b-1 (i.e. annual) fees, or deferred (i.e. back-end) load fees.  Assume that the SAS Fund offers its investors the choice of the following sales fee arrangements: (1) a 3% front-end load, (2) a 0.50 percent annual deduction, or (3) a 2 percent back-end load, paid at the liquidation of the investor’s position.  Also, assume that SAS Fund averages NAV growth of 12 percent per  year.

B. If your investment horizon were 10 years, would your answer in part A change? Demonstrate why or why not.

 

C.  Explain the relationship between the timing of the sales charge and your investment horizon.  In general, if you intend to hold your position for a long time, which fee arrangement would you prefer?
