Net Asset Value (NAV)
For a mutual fund, the Net Asset Value (NAV) is the price per share or unit in the fund.

When you buy or sell shares in a mutual fund you do so at the current NAV. The NAV rises and falls as the value of the underlying investments in the fund changes. The NAV is computed daily at the close of each business day.
