What fees does the Pax World Growth Fund charge?
The Pax World Growth Fund does not charge any fees to purchase or redeem shares. (Prior to November 1, 1999, the Fund imposed a 2.5% front-end sales charge.) Advisory, legal, and other costs are charged against the Fund’s earnings. The Fund seeks to keep these expenses below 1.5% of net assets annually. If the investor chooses to invest through a broker/dealer or financial planner, these persons may charge a transaction or other fee for their services, in addition to the sales fee imposed by the Fund.
How are income and capital gains paid?
Dividends, if any, are paid on a semi-annual basis in the months of July and December. Capital gains, if any, will be distributed annually in the month of December. Investors can receive all dividends and capital gains in cash, reinvest all capital gains and dividends in their account, or receive all dividends in cash and reinvest all capital gains in their account. The daily net asset value reflects the accumulation of dividend income and capital gains that have been accrued but not distributed.
