NAV is the Net Asset Value. It is the redemption price of an individual unit of a Mutual Fund.

NAV = (Current Market Value of all the Assets – Liabilities) / Total Number of Units Outstanding

Sales load is the sales charge on open-end funds applied to unit/shareholders. It is a given fixed percentage of Net Asset Value per Unit. Some mutual funds recover the sales load when investors purchase the units (Front End Load), whereas others do when investors redeem (encash) the units (Back End Load). Mutual Funds generally do not charge sales load on reinvestment of dividend. The shorter the period of investment, the greater will be the impact of the sales load. Maximum benefit can be derived from Mutual Fund investments by regularly investing, reinvesting the dividend and holding the investment for a longer period.
