What is the minimum amount that I can invest?
Investment minimums are set by the financial advisor platforms. Please contact your client service center where you would normally purchase mutual funds as to any applicable minimums required.
What is an expense ratio?
The expense ratio is the annual fee that all funds charge their shareholders. It expresses the percentage of assets deducted each fiscal year for fund expenses, management fees, administrative fees, operating costs and all other asset-based costs incurred by the fund.
Are there loads associated with the Glenmede mutual funds?
All Glenmede Funds are no load funds.
Some mutual funds charge back-end loads, meaning the fee is charged when you redeem the mutual fund. They can also charge a front-end load, which is the opposite of a back-end load, meaning the fee is charged up front. A no-load fund simply means that you can buy and redeem the mutual fund units/ shares at any time without a commission or sales charge. Note: certain platforms may have short-term holding period requirements and associated fees.
