Front Load

A fee levied by a mutual fund company on new investments. A front-end load is charged up front, as opposed to a back-end load, which is levied when you sell. There is no evidence that mutual funds charging hefty loads outperform no-load funds, and the latter have been gaining popularity in recent years.
