Sales Load

The sales fee that the buyer pays in order to acquire an asset.

Additional Comments:

The fee varies according to the type of asset and the way it is sold. Many mutual funds impose a sales charge. As a result of the load, only a portion of the investor?s funds go into the investment itself.
