NO-LOAD FUND is a mutual fund sold directly to investors without commissions paid to salesmen or other up-front costs. Some funds charge surrender fees, although a pure no-load fund has no sales, exit or marketing fees.

MANDATORY TRANSFERS are transfers from the current (operating) fund group to other fund groups arising out of binding legal agreements related to the financing, e.g., in education: debt retirement, interest, and grant agreements with federal agencies and other organizations to match gifts and grants. Whereas non-mandatory transfers would be transfers from the current (operating) fund group to other fund groups made at the discretion of management to serve various objectives, e.g., additions to loan funds, endowment funds, plant additions, and voluntary renewal and replacement of plant.
