Glossary Term: OPEN-END FUND

Definition(s) for OPEN-END FUND:


1. ) refers to a mutual fund with no limit to the number of shares that can be issued depending on the investors' demand. These shares are purchased directly from the fund company itself, or through a brokerage firm. Investors buy the shares at their market price. This contrasts with a closed-end fund, which has a fixed number of shares that trade over-the-counter or on a stock exchange. The share price of an open-end fund is determined by dividing the total net assets of the fund by the number of shares outstanding. This figure is called the fund's net asset value (NAV). The net asset value of an open-end fund is calculated at the end of each trading day. Most mutual funds are open-end funds.
