Spanish term or phrase: para atras / hacia al frente
Estoy traduciendo unas actas de reuniones donde se discuten temas financieros. Me parece recordar que las expresiones "hacia/para atras" y "hacia adelante" tienen un significado particular en finanzas pero no logro encontrar referencia.

Las frases que no logro traducir son las siguientes:

"...y yo sé que hay otras razones por las cuales se venden los fondos para atrás como, como sugerencia, como recomendación de parte de los corredores."

De antemano gracias por cualquier ayuda que me puedan ofrecer.

reverse split

Is it a publicly traded company? If so, maybe a reverse split?

A reverse split increases the price per share and proportionately reduces the number of shares outstanding for a fund. As with a forward split, a reverse split does not change the value of investors' investments. For example, in a one-for-four reverse split, every four pre-split shares held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced four times higher than the NAV of pre-split shares.
