BACK-END LOAD

A sales charge or commission payable by an investor at the time of redemption of a municipal fund security. This charge is considered contingent because the amount of such charge typically will be reduced the longer the investor holds its investment and often will be eliminated after a specified period of time. See: LOAD; MUNICIPAL FUND SECURITY. Compare: FRONT-END LOAD.
