```

Q. Calculate the expected NAV of the fund at the end of the current year.

Your Answer:

25+1.11=27.76-5=22.765

Solution

The expected NAV of the fund at the end of the current year is €25,258,050, calculated as follows:

First, the expected distribution at the end of the current year is calculated asExpected distribution = [Prior-year NAV × (1 + Growth rate)] × (Distribution rate). Expected distribution = [(€25,000,000 × 1.11) × 18%] = €4,995,000.

Therefore, the expected NAV of the fund at the end of the current year is Expected NAV = [Prior-year NAV × (1 + Growth rate) + Capital contributions – Distributions)] × (1 + Growth rate). Expected NAV = [(€25,000,000 × 1.11) + 0 − €4,995,000] × **1.11** = €25,258,050.

My Q is why is there 1.11 twice? we are calculating for one year right?
