I created this page in order for Philippine mutual fund investors to easily track the performance of their mutual fund investments. The embedded webpage below is from the official website of the Philippine Investment Fund Associations, popularly called PIFA. Popular mutual funds such as Sun Life Prosperity Fund, PhilEquity Fund and First Metro Asset Management Fund (FAMI) are listed here with there latest NAVPS as well as YTD and yearly performances.
For you to understand the facts and figures above, let us define the terminologies used in the table below.
NAV per Share/Net Asset Value Per Share = According to TheFreeDictionary.com, is a “valuation of an investment company’s shares calculated by subtracting any liabilities from the market value of the firm’s assets and dividing the difference by the number of shares outstanding. This factor illustrates the amount a shareholder would receive for each share owned if the fund sold all its assets (stocks, bonds, and so forth) at their current market value, paid off any outstanding debts with the proceeds, and then distributed the remainder to the stockholders. In general, net asset value per share is the price an investor would receive when selling a fund’s shares back to the fund.” If you have 1000 shares of Sun Life Prosperity Equity fund and the NAV per share is 4.000 pesos today (for example), the current market value of your shares is 1000 x 4.000 = 4,000.00 pesos. If you bought 1 share of Sun Life equity fund 4 years ago for only 1 peso and now the price per share/unit is 4 pesos, your paper gain is about 3 pesos. You earn money when you sell your shares at a price higher than the price you paid when you bought them.
