Back end load

• A sales charge or commission for an investment paid by the buyer at the time of sale.

• Refers to charges which are imposed upon the redemption or liquidation of an investment position. Often these charges are on a sliding scale. Sometimes, these charges are viewed as early withdrawal penalties. They are called backend because they occur at the end of the investment process.

• A commission or sales fee that is charged upon the redemption of Mutual Fund shares or Variable Annuity contracts. It declines annually, and reaches zero over an extended holding period -- up to eight years -- as described in the prospectus. See also: Front-End Load; Contingent-Deferred Sales Load.
