State Farm Mutual Funds® offers several share classes. Share classes are a common way of offering the same investment at different costs. Generally speaking, the higher the minimum investment or total account balance, the lower the expenses.
How does it work?
Accounts with higher balances are less expensive to maintain, so accounts with higher balances directly benefit from the savings.
Are the underlying investments different?
The investment objective and strategy, portfolio manager, and underlying investments are identical across share classes.
That means you get the same quality fund regardless of which share class you choose.
|Class A Shares||$1,000 minimum investment. Open to all customers. Shareowners pay no sales loads and no distribution/service fees.|
|Premium Shares||Customers with at least $100,000 in total State Farm Mutual Fund assets qualify for Premier Shares. All of the same features/benefits of Investor shares apply, in addition to a 0.10% reduction in annual expenses.|
|Class B Shares||Effective May 1, 2015, Class B shares are no longer available for purchase by new investors or by shareholders who own Class B shares in existing accounts. A shareowner who owns Class B shares in an existing account may continue to hold those shares within the account and may exchange those shares for Class B shares of another Fund. Exchanges into new fund positions will require the minimum fund investment of $1,000 to be met.|
|Class R1, R2 and R3 Shares||Class R Shares are designated for retirement accounts and generally may only be purchased through 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plans.|
