My wife has a portfolio that is made up entirely of B share load funds. They are in their second year of maturity and have mostly got 3 to 4 points to get rid of before they turn to A shares. Personally, I would like to convert her whole portfolio into no-loads, but I can't figure if it's worth doing now considering she'll have to pay up when she dumps these things.

How do you figure the cost and the makeup time getting back the money you have spent to get out? Is it worth doing now or should we wait a year or two till the B shares go down some more?

Or am I asking a foolish question (I hope).

Thanks anyone,

EKW
