Mutual Fund refers to a pool of money collected by various investors who intend to save and make money through their investment. The financial corpus so formed is invested in different asset classes, namely, liquid assets, debt funds etc. Much like profits and rewards earned during the tenure of investment, losses are also equally distributed among all the investors, i.e. in accordance with the proportion of their contribution to the financial corpus.

A NAV of fund is a derivative of division of securities’ total value in the portfolio by the total outstanding amount of shares. Outstanding shares are the ones held by the institutional investors, company officers, insiders, or the shareholders. Shares of MF can usually be bought or redeemed as required at the current NAV of the funds, which – unlike the price of stock – does not vary during the market hours, but is settled at the end of the trading day.
