What is NAVPS?
Net Asset Value Per Share (NAVPS) reflects the value per single share of a company or fund.
To calculate NAVPS, this formula is used:
Net Asset Value Per Share = (Market Value of all Securities Held + Cash and Cash Equivalents – Liabilities) / Number of Outstanding Shares
Grit Company reports the following figures in their financial statement (in pesos). Let’s use the formula above to calculate their NAVPS:
Securities = 10,000,000
Cash/Cash Equivalents = 1,000,000
Liabilities = 500,000
Outstanding Shares = 2,000,000
NAVPS = (10,000,000 + 1,000,000 + 500,000) / 2,000,000
= 10,500,000 / 2,000,000
NAVPS = Php 5.25
NAVPS is used to determine the price at which shares are redeemed and offered. It is also used to track a fund’s performance since its inception.
Note, however, that shares are bought and sold on a daily basis. This can change the number of total outstanding shares quickly, depending on the trading activity. Because of this, NAVPS can be thought of as a “snapshot” of a single point in time rather than a fixed value covering a long period.

Balanced Mutual Funds
Balanced funds typically carry a moderate-risk rating and appeal to those who are looking into a 3-5 year horizon. Balanced funds are typically allocated in time deposits, bonds, and the stock market.
Bond Funds (Mutual Funds)
