DEFINITION of 'Indicative Net Asset Value - iNAV'

A measure of the intraday net asset value (NAV) of an investment, such as an exchange-traded fund (ETF), which gives an updated measure of the value of the investment based on its assets less its liabilities. An investment's NAV is usually calculated at the end of the trading day, but the indicative NAV measure gives a more real-time view of this value.

Also referred to as "indicative value".
