Van Eck Funds is planning on removing class B shares on its Global Hard Asset Fund, a filing published with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday revealed. The fund will no longer offer the shares beginning Sept. 3. Beginning Oct. 31, all shareholders with class B shares will find those shares coverted to class C. Shareholders will no longer be subject to the contingent deferred sales charge but to a contingent deferred redemption fee of 1% for one year after purchase of any class C share.

Phoenix decided not to offer class B shares on its two new asset allocation funds (see MME 8/15/03).
