The process of changing a mutual fund from one class designation to another, due to a change in circumstances or requirements. This often happens when a company initially issues multiple series of mutual funds, and then after a certain series of events, one class of fund is reclassified as another class. One example of this is when a back-end load fund or front-end load fund is reclassified as a no-load fund once a given amount of time has passed.
