FE is also a commonly used abbreviation
in the Canadian (and probably others) mutual fund
industry. It stands for Front End, or Front-end Load
, which is a kind of commission
charged on mutual fund purchases. Commission on FE funds is charged as a flat percentage of your initial purchase amount, but after that there is no charge to switch between other FE funds in the same fund family. FE is also called ISC
, or Initial Sales Charge
, by some companies.
