Thornburg Drops a Trio of B Shares

Reported by Meredith Mazzilli

Yet another fund firm has halted trading of certain mutual funds' B shares. Effective August 1, Thornburg Investment Management stopped selling class B shares of its Government Fund, Value Fund and International Value Fund. Such shares will be converted to A shares at the end of eight years. Thornburg joins Praxis, First American and American Funds in their recent abandonment of the share class.

"Therefore, due to the lack of B share interest, it was an opportune time to withdraw.”
