what is NAV?

Net asset value (NAV) is a term used to describe the value of an entity’s assets less the value of its liabilities. The term is most commonly used in relation to open-ended or mutual funds due to the fact that shares of such funds registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission are redeemed at their net asset value. However, the term may also be used as a synonym for book value or the equity value of a business. Net asset value may represent the value of the total equity, or it may be divided by the number of shares outstanding held by investors and, thereby, represent the net asset value per share
