Actually what is nav means, adding up all the market value of all the shares in the fund and if you divide it by the number of total mutual fund units. This is what called NAV.

Net Asset Value is the one that is the price per share of the fund. This value is available with share price as like shares. You know even mutual fund is available with net asset value. As in general mutual fund initiates with a unit-cost of Rs. 10 and that alone grows called as fund’s assets.

Notably, the fund that is considered as popular one is provided with net asset value. At the same time net asset value is not the one that depends upon the mutual investment schemes that you have picked. It won’t come in the future as well along with mutual fund scheme. In short it is the total value of the mutual fund scheme investments provided with fewer liabilities and expenses.

If a scheme having much net asset value then either it is available with a longer period or else it is accessible with better aspects. That is why it is important for investors to look at the future growth and investment plan features before going to invest in the mutual fund scheme.

The mutual fund companies will calculate portfolio once after the stock market gets closed at 3.30 P.M on every day. On the next day, the market will initiate by means of the previous day’s closing share prices. At the same time the fund house will deduct all the liabilities. In this the NAV will be calculated as
