What is NAV (Net Asset Value)?

NAV, or Net Asset Value, as it is called in its extended form, is the market value of the scheme’s assets. The price at which you buy a single unit of a mutual fund.

Is NAV the same as the selling price?

The selling price of schemes may vary because of exit loads. For instance, if a scheme is currently at Rs.20 in terms of NAV, and an exit load of 1% is charged on it, then the effective price at the time of sale will be Rs.19.8.

How will I get my redemption amount?

The amount at the time of redemption is usually paid through direct debit via NEFT or RTGS, or via cheque.
