New England Funds is letting investors and brokers buy, transfer, and sell shares of its funds through the company's Web site.

The addition of on-line transactions, announced early this month, will not cut out investment advisers, the Boston-based company said.

New England Funds, a subsidiary of Nvest LP, has 23 mutual funds with $7.4 billion of assets under management.
