The Portfolio Share Classes resource represents a non-paged collection of Portfolio share classes. A Portfolio share class is typically used for Mutual Funds and relate to how the fund is purchased by an investor. For example, some share classes might represent a “Capitalized share class” indicating that dividends are re-invested into the portfolio. Another share class for the same portfolio might represent a “Distributed share class” indicating that dividends are paid out. The portfolio invests in the same instruments but the return achieved by the investor depends on which share class they have purchased. Share classes can also indicate different sales charges that might be incurred on the investor. However, the choice of how share classes (and how many) are used is completely up to each client’s own needs.
Each portfolio share class within the collection contains details such as the name, code and currency of the share class.
The Portfolio Share Classes resource is exposed via XML and JSON representations, which have the following media type names:- > application/vnd.statpro.revolution.api.portfolio-share-classes+json
