Definition of 'Rights of Accumulation - ROA'

Investopedia explains 'Rights of Accumulation - ROA'


For example: You wish to buy $2,000 of Fund ABC with a sales charge of 5.50% to add to your existing $19,000 of the same fund in your account. Given that Fund ABC is linked to an ROA and that the breakpoint is $20,000, you would qualify for a reduced sales charge (i.e. 5.25%). Also, the entire purchase ($2,000) would qualify for the reduced sales charge and not just the amount in excess of $20,000.
