    What is Net Asset Value (NAV)?

    Each investment trust calculates the net asset value of a share by adding up the value of all the securities owned by the trust divided by the number of outstanding shares. The NAV can be viewed as the amount of money investors would receive per share if all of the securities owned by a trust were sold and distributed to the shareholders.

    The share price of the Trust is determined by demand and supply in the stock market and does not always reflect the underlying value of the share portfolio.
