Termination Details

If investors purchase shares of mutual funds, and then later purchase shares in the same family of mutual funds, they may be entitled to discounts. These are called “breakpoint” discounts. Class A mutual funds typically charge front-end fees. It is the broker’s responsibility to ensure that their investor receives the discounts that they are entitled to. 

The investor further alleged that Kyle Steibel failed to disclose mutual fund sales charges and underrepresented sales charge expenses to the investor.
