Definition of 'Open-End Funds'
The vast majority of mutual funds are open-end funds, which can issue new shares all the time in response to investor demand. (In contrast, closed-end funds have a set number of shares outstanding.) Sometimes the fund family will close these funds, both to new and current investors, when their asset size becomes too big to manage efficiently.
