Many mutual funds charge load fees, which act as commissions or sales charges when funds are sold or bought. Though the costs seem minute at first, over time these load fees can begin to add up and weigh on an investor. Some of these loads can be surprise costs to investors who did not realize that the fees were a part of the product they purchased. No-load funds eliminate those charges in an attempt to save investors’ money and allow them to keep more of their returns. Currently, there is no research to suggest that no-load funds outperform load funds, but rather cut down on costs when it comes time to move or change positions. Below, we list our best pieces concerning no-load funds, helping to educate investors on how to better utilize these products.
