PERPETUAL is a fixed income security with no maturity date, such as a preferred stock with no sinking fund.
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.
