Can you give me an example on how the mutual fund is computed? Let’s say I invested P50K last April 2010 @ 2.4646 NAV/share. How much is it now let’s say 2.7554 NAV/share? I’m a bit confused when the agent explained the computation. But I know that it will make profit…

Hope you can show me or you can give an example as well.

Thanks. 🙂

Hi there! In order to compute your profit in mutual fund, you just use this equation: P=(A-B)XC
where P = profit
A = present NAV/share
B= NAV/share when bought
C = no. of shares
In your case, C = 50,000/2.4646 = 20,287 but when you buy a mutual fund there’s a sales load/fee normally 1-2% of your invested money depending on the MF company. So your net invested money maybe just around 49,000. So NOT including sales load, your profit P = (2.7554-2.4646)x20,287 = 5,899. This is big money!

First Metro for the win! I got both Equity & Balanced Funds and I’m happy with the paper gains. Too bad I wasn’t able to make additional positions when their prices were still down. nice blog by the way. =)
