What is NAV in ULIPs?

NAV stands for Net Asset Value. In ULIPs, it's like a stock price but for your entire investment. It shows how much each unit you own is worth based on the current value of the stocks, bonds, etc., held by the ULIP plan. A higher NAV means your investment is doing well. Understanding the concept of NAV (Net Asset Value) is important in determining the returns generated by ULIP investments.

What is NAV in ULIP?

Net Asset Value (NAV) is the value of a single unit of an asset minus liabilities of the investment fund. It helps in tracking the performance of a fund.

Here's how NAV works in ULIPs:

  • Unit System: A portion of your Unit Linked Insurance Plan premium is invested in various market instruments like stocks, bonds, etc. These investments are held in units.

  • NAV reflects value: Each unit has a NAV, which represents the current market value of the underlying assets in the ULIP fund minus the liabilities (expenses) of the fund.

  • NAV determines purchase/redemption price: The NAV determines the price at which you purchase additional units with your future premiums or redeem your existing units.

The NAV in ULIPs changes daily as it is influenced by the performance of the underlying assets held by the fund. If the fund performs well, the NAV will increase and vice-versa.

How is NAV in ULIPs Calculated?

Formula to calculate ULIP NAV: 

NAV = (Market Value of Investments + Current Assets) - (Value of Current Liabilities & Provisions) / Total number of outstanding units on the date.

Lets Under NAV with an Illustration:

Imagine Rakesh has a ULIP fund with the following:

Market Value of Investments: ₹1,00,000

Current Assets: ₹10,000

Liabilities: ₹5,000

Number of Outstanding Units: 10,000

Step 1: Calculate the total net assets of the fund

Total Net Assets = Market Value of Investments + Current Assets - Liabilities

= ₹1,00,000 + ₹10,000 - ₹5,000

= ₹1,05,000

Step 2: Divide the net assets by the number of outstanding units

NAV = Total Net Assets / Number of Outstanding Units

= ₹1,05,000 / 10,000 units

= ₹10.50 per unit

Therefore, in this example, the NAV of the ULIP fund is ₹10.50 per unit. This signifies that each unit you hold in the ULIP is currently worth ₹10.50.

FAQs

  • What does NAV tell you?

    NAV (Net Asset Value) tells you the current market value of each unit in your ULIP or mutual fund. It reflects the fund's performance and helps investors assess the value of their investment.
  • Is NAV a good indicator?

    NAV alone is not a definitive indicator of a fund's performance. It's essential to consider other factors like investment objectives, risk profile, past performance, expense ratio, and market conditions when evaluating the suitability of a fund.
