NAV return

Definition

Investing

  • The net asset value (NAV) change that occurs in an exchange traded fund (ETF) or a mutual fund within a specific period of time. The NAV return is not the same as the total return realized by an investor due to the fact that these investments may trade either at a premium or a discount to the fund price as well as to the value of the assets that are held in the overall portfolio.
