So far this year, Class A shares of load funds are dominating net sales while Class B shares have decreased significantly from last year, according to a new report from Financial Research Corporation.

Class A shares have accounted for over half (52%) of net flows into load funds in 2001, versus just 20% last year, according to FRC. In contrast, B shares have accounted for just 9% of net flows this year, down from 42% in 2000. That trend is likely to continue, the report says.
