Trading and settlement
Shares are highly liquid. They can be bought or sold (redeemed) on any day when the markets are open. Whether working through a representative (e.g., counselor) or directly through the Fund company, can place an order to buy or redeem shares, and it will be executed at the next available net asset value (NAV), which is calculated after the close of each trading day. Some brokerages and Fund companies require orders to be placed before market close (2 PM et), while others allow same-day execution until market close.
The settlement period for mutual Fund operations varies from one to three days, depending on the type of Fund.
The price paid for the shares redeemed from shareholders – also the amount received for the redeemed shares is based on the new navigation, in conjunction with any purchase or redemption of loads or fees that are due. NAV is calculated daily after the market closes for the purpose of determining the closing market value of all securities of the Fund, less liabilities of the Fund. This figure is divided by the total number of shares of the Fund, resulting in NAV per share for that day. Buy and sell orders for that day are performed through which NAV.
In addition to the NAV, investors should take into consideration different fees or sales loads associated with the mutual funds, for example, before the loads (commissions), deferred sale payments due at maturity, short-term transactions and purchase, exchange fees and account fees. Such fees reduce the NAV on the value of shares received for redemption and added to the purchase price of NAV when buying shares.
