Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / Investment fund
German term or phrase: Rückbehalt
There is a chart here describing the commission.

The top line shows "Zielsumme" - then the amount of money
The next line says "Gezahlte Provision (Rueckbehalt FF) - then that amount of money

Can someone tell me what the Rueckbehalt means? Some kind of money held back?

Commission paid (FF retained)

Withheld would be OK if it's a permanent deduction (e.g., for taxes), retained if it continues belonging to the recipient, but goes into some kind of savings fund

What's FF, though?
