Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced today that the state’s tax-advantaged, advisor-sold college savings plan, the LoneStar 529 Plan, implemented the following enhancements – including a reduction in some fees – that were effective March 7:

Reduction in the front-end sales charge for Class A shares from 5.75% to 2.75%;

Reduction in total plan level fees, including the program management fee, the state administrative fee and the estimated underlying investment expenses;

A change from Age-Based Portfolios to Target Enrollment Year Portfolios to allow more flexibility for investors to select a portfolio based on when they plan to use the account and their risk tolerance; and
