Capital Share

The class of shares offered by a dual-purpose fund that has opportunity for capital appreciation but does not offer the holder any portion of the fixed income earned within the portfolio.

Capital shares typically attract investors that are looking more for capital growth than for income growth as profits are made only if the stocks increase in price.
