Putnam Investments is adding a contingent deferred sales charge and redemption fees to three of its international funds in a move to stave off market timers, according to a company SEC filing.

The firm has added a 1% redemption fee on A and Y shares of its International New Opportunities, Emerging Markets and International Voyager funds. On A shares of the International New Opportunities and International Voyager funds, it will also begin charging investors a 75 basis point CDSC if they redeem 90% of their cumulative investment within two years of the initial purchase, according to the filing.
